I'm a patient of Dr. Rosado but he was out of town and I needed to see a practitioner quickly because of ear infections. This was the 1st time I've encountered Joan. She was wonderful, caring and concerned! She kept me informed of everything she was doing and thinking along the way. I felt very well taken care of in Dr. Rosado's absence.
