October 19, 2014

Angelo provided me with adequate time to express my concerns. He was very knowledgable and reassuring with any questions I had. He insisted on calling me personally to discuss lab work that was drawn and address any questions I had at that time. I would absolutely reccomend Angelo Pulgiano.

September 26, 2014

the doctor was very courteous and called me at home.I've never had a doctor call me at home before I was happy

September 22, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is my primary care physician. He has a no-nonsense bedside manner, which i appreciate greatly. I feel the medications he prescribes are exactly what I need. I don't get bombarded with a bunch of Rx that may or may not be useful. He listens to my concerns and makes an educated decision on my course of treatment.

September 12, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano has never had a patient with eye cancer before, but was very compassionate and concerned and wanted to know everything we know.

August 28, 2014

Good

August 09, 2014

To be honest every time I see Dr. Pulgiano I feel rushed and treated like a number. I keep saying to myself that I want to see someone else but he's listed as my primary care doctor so I feel a sense of obligation every time I schedule an appt since the front desk asks if that's who I want to see. After this visit though I felt rushed (again) and I realized he didn't really know me or my history. He just looks at things on the computer then click click click he gives me generic advice and prints out good sleep habits (again) and moves on. At the end of the visit he asked if I had any questions but I felt like he didn't care anyway so I just said no. Next appointment I need to make I'm going to request a new physician.

July 24, 2014

Dr P. Is the best doctor I have ever had. His attention to detail, compassion and medical knowledge is impeccable. He answers my questions and makes sure that I have a complete understanding of everything that was reviewed during my visits. His staff is friendly and efficient. I am grateful that the University of Utah has Dr P in their corner.

July 24, 2014

He is not a easy doctor he treated me like I was very dumb and didn't know what I was talking about and didn't not listen to what I was saying I will not go back to him again

July 19, 2014

Very good

July 18, 2014

I did not have as good a visit as I did my first. I felt my concerns and extreme worry about my leg were not addressed.

July 14, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is a great doctor.

June 27, 2014

I LOVE Dr. Pulgiano! He is the best PCP I have ever had-he knows who I am and remembers little things about me from my last visit. He is funny and very concerned about me-he helps coordinate care and get answers from other doctors when I can't. To the U of U, do not let this man go anywhere else!

June 23, 2014

I went in for a very painful sore throat. The doctor said by looking at it I didn't have strep but it was very red. I did what he told me to do but the pain persisted for 4 or 5 more days. and I went out town with a large number of family members and 4 ended up getting strep in the week.

June 22, 2014

Did not seem to show concern for what I had to say or how I was feeling. I felt very rushed thru the exam. It felt like he had his mind made up about what he was going to say to me and did not hear what I was tying to convey to him. I will not see this physician again nor my husband.

June 13, 2014

seems ready to run off to his next task seems smart, but could be more personable

June 12, 2014

I was very pleased with all persons involved

June 07, 2014

I just always feel awkward when the doctor is typing into the computer but just leaves me sitting there awkwardly waiting. maybe he could be telling you what he's typing Ina's he goes. This just always makes it feel less personal.

June 02, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano was great. I was impressed that both he and his assistant took the time to review my chart and address not only my current concerns but also past ones to make sure all is going well.

May 24, 2014

the Dr. war very tired and yawning in front of me only focus in the computer, very bad experience. I'll be change of provider ..

May 16, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano and his staff (along with the entire staff at the U from appointments to pharmacy) just rock! They always treat me like they care about me even if they see me 4 times a month. I always feel like I am in great hands.

April 27, 2014

Pulgiano is the best!

April 21, 2014

I went in for a physical, and I don't think I got a complete physical by the physician. I have be very good about getting a physical every year, and I don't think the physician took enough time to make sure that everything was ok with my health.

April 17, 2014

Perhaps Dr. P was a little behind schedule with his appointments. He seemed to be irritated with the number of questions I had on my list.

April 16, 2014

I left very happy and confident I had chosen a great doctor.

April 12, 2014

He has always gone beyond my expectations.

April 04, 2014

Excellent

April 04, 2014

good

March 17, 2014

Excellent experience.

March 15, 2014

Great! I was late, and he was short on time, but took time to answer my questions.

March 13, 2014

The only problem I had was the prescription that the doc gave ended up being really expensive. I wish he would have talked to me about that at the time. I called his office to see if there was another option and luckily there was. They fixed it quickly with the pharmacy.

March 10, 2014

Always very kind and informative.

February 21, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is incredible with his explanations and his concern always feels genuine.

February 19, 2014

I appreciate the time Dr. Pulgiano takes with me when I have multiple concerns or remember items at the last minute.

February 16, 2014

won't see him again, I will go to ER first.

February 14, 2014

I have used Dr Pulgiano twice and like his practice best.

February 11, 2014

good

January 31, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano was great. He is very thorough and has helped me understand my condition much better than any other doctor.

January 28, 2014

Yeah, I don't see any problems with it.

January 26, 2014

Dr. Pulgiano is my favorite. He includes me and doesn't just decide things for me. We work as a team for my care and I recommend him to everyone. :-)

January 21, 2014

I love Dr. Pulgiano and his the care he and his staff provide. I recommend him regularly.

January 21, 2014

I've been looking for a primary care Dr for 2 years. I've been seen by 2 other physicians @ the SJ clinic and didn't feel they were a good fit for me. I am SO glad I found Dr. Pulgiano. I have confidence in him and feel he's including me in my health care plan.

December 30, 2013

The doctor was very thorough. I appreciated that.

December 30, 2013

Everything was good that day, but it's the 4th day now and I still haven't received my results. I was told Friday that I would have them Saturday. It's Monday now.

December 30, 2013

Thay was very good to me

December 28, 2013

Most rewarding experience I've had.

December 16, 2013

Exceptional experience!

December 16, 2013

He such a good caring doctor. He can understand me and my health issues. He tries to work with to manage my meds and my health. I recommend him to all my friends.

December 13, 2013

I couldn't me more pleased with the experience I had with Dr. Pulgiano. I found him to be pleasant, professional, and thorough in his approach. I will definitely refer my friends and family members to his care.

December 12, 2013

During this visit I was sent to IV infusion. While getting my infusion he came over every so often to check on me to see how I was doing. Dr. Pulgiano is a wonderful doctor. I would recommend him to anyone.

December 11, 2013

I appreciate the care he gives me and the preparation done when referring me to another doctor (xrays). I also appreciate the time given to callme to give me feedback on my labwork and xray results. I was meeting with my rhuematologist when I received the xray results and they were the same in regards to the the nature of my implants and we decided to wait a bit considering they had lasted over 40 years (my non-dominant hand and the first implants that were done) due to my health issues.

December 09, 2013

I went in for a physical. It felt a bit rushed compared to physicals I have received from other healthcare providers who performed more thorough examinations.

December 08, 2013

Dr. Pulgiano was very helpful and took the time to make sure I understood all my health concerns and gave me good advice as to my good health. He was very knowledgeable as to my medical conditions.

December 02, 2013

Very caring

November 18, 2013

I think the world of Dr. Pulgiano!

November 11, 2013

I like Dr. Pulgiano. It is the first physical I've had with him. Would prefer that he do pap smears with the physical.

November 06, 2013

I love Dr. Pulgiano and have sent a few of my co-workers to him and they love him too. He is so smart and really makes you feel like you are in great hands. He is smart and manages to make the time to make sure I know what's going on and ensure that I understand my condition.

October 28, 2013

I really like Dr. Pulgiano. He made me feel very comfortable even though my condition isn't very fun or easy to talk about. He seemed very concerned and I felt like he really wanted to help me get better. I feel good about having him as my doctor.

October 26, 2013

I was recommended this care provider by someone. I'm glad they did.

October 25, 2013

Please treat him well enough so that he will not leave your organization as all of my previous doctors have from the University Health Centers

October 21, 2013

I'm very happy with Dr. P, he is knowledgable and understanding about my condition.

October 21, 2013

I once had a bad experince up in Internal medicine and wasnt going to go back. Dr Pulgiano is very professional and really took an interest in my problem and could tell he was very competant in his practice as a MD.

October 16, 2013

Dr Pulgiano was great! This was my first time seeing him and I was definitely impressed.

September 09, 2013

DR. talks too fast at times, somewhat hard to follow .

August 22, 2013

Doctor is smart but does not listen to patients and seems to make decisions without much patient input.

August 13, 2013

I enjoyed how personable Dr. Polgiano was with me and made me feel like I was doing ok and whatever my problems were, we would find a solution that worked for me. He worked well with the nurse that was assisting and together, they made me feel comfortable and like I was important to them.

August 12, 2013

Excellent care!

August 03, 2013

I think Dr. Pulgiano is qualified and dedicated, but more time should have been used in examing the injuries and proving a description of care precautions and treament options. I found such information from my own research which should have been presented to me at the apointment.

July 29, 2013

Dr. Very rush

July 23, 2013

outstanding patient care

July 13, 2013

To date, my experience with Dr. Angelo Pulgiano has been sterling / top notch. He has a compassionate and caring, yet, no nonsense and to the point demeanor that fits very well with me. Dr. Pulgiano is the reason I continue to use the University of Utah Healthcare system.

July 05, 2013

I will probably make this doctor my primary care based on this visit. He was nice, understanding and seemed to care about my problem. I felt very welcome and comfortable.

July 04, 2013

He seemed rushed. He didn't want to look into the issue the C.F. clinic sent me in for. He addressed The allergy issue but did no blood work for my liver and made me feel as though the issue was my fault.

June 25, 2013

in all fairness to him, i have hearing loss and haven't been able to get aids. i know communicating with me can be irritating. i felt the dr was irritated if i asked him to repeat something i didn't catch the first time. the subject of pain was so absorbing the whole appt. that i didn't have a chance to discuss other problems i am having.

June 24, 2013

Dr. Pulgiano was great. He has a calm presence but can speak with force to get me to make positive changes to my health. He is just the kind of physician I need.

June 11, 2013

I felt he was rushing through the appt. One of my complaints was ear pain and he didn't even look in my ears.

June 06, 2013

I have made him my primary care Dr. after one visit.

May 29, 2013

he patiently listened to everything I had to say, never interrupted me (even when I rambled) or talked down to me. My symptoms have not completely gone away but he made sure I scheduled a follow up so I'm sure I will be well taken care of.

May 20, 2013

I never feel rushed with Dr. Pulgiano. He listens and is engaged in the conversation. He doesn't "check-out" after I tell him the initial symptom. I appreciate his concern and care when I am being treated by him.

May 14, 2013

it seemed that the doctor was in a big hurry. i had to repeat myself several times and they were not listening to me about my condition.

May 13, 2013

I like Dr. Pulgian very much, he is competent and thorough, always professional and caring. He communicates extremely well.

May 06, 2013

the doctor prescribed me medication for allergies when I told him I knew that my symptoms were not allergies. I feel like he really didn't care what my symptoms were and just assumed they were allergies. he only spent about five minutes with me and that was it. I would not recommend this doctor or see him again. I was very disappointed.

April 22, 2013

He seemed in a hurry but confident.

April 12, 2013

Dr. Pulgiano is very thorough and really does want his patients to feel better.

April 08, 2013

We also saw a medical student who took my health history. We liked his bedside manner much better then Dr. Pulgiano. Dr. Pulgiano seemed like an excellent physician, but he was a little more impatient with us asking about the risk of diabetes a few times.

April 03, 2013

I think he treated me with the wrong drug (gout) used steroids in stead of gout meds. Problem still .

March 11, 2013

Visit was very rushed.

March 11, 2013

Doctor did not remember all my issues

March 07, 2013

ANGELO PULGIANO IN THE BEST!!

March 06, 2013

I have already passed out Dr. Angelo Pulgiano's cards to many in my office that have been looking for a replacement for Doctor Gibson. He is really good and for the first time since Dr. Gibson left I feel like I found a match.

February 25, 2013

Very professional. No nonsense. I liked it. A bit fast though. I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes and the providers told me very quickly. I was in a state of shock for a bit.

January 28, 2013

I didn't like being perscribed meds without discusion or explaination and being new to the country I needed more detail as I was requesting however little was given and incorrect drugs were perscripbed

January 28, 2013

Dr Pugliano didn't care a bout the symptoms I have. He didn't show any concern. It seems that he just was there because he had to.

January 23, 2013

I have found my new primary care facility.

January 22, 2013

I felt like he was rushed and was rushing me.

January 02, 2013

Dr. Pulgiano spent time explaining things to me and answered all of my questions.

January 01, 2013

Approximately one month ago, disability medicaid sent me a letter and told me I could change to another health plan if I wished but I stayed with Healthy-U because I like my Doctor.

December 18, 2012

just an all around positive professional experience which I have had not had at docotors' offices for many years. It was good to be taken seriously and have my questions considered and not scoffed at.

December 14, 2012

Always a pleasure to deal with the staff in this office.

December 10, 2012

Seriously considering changing my primary care provider to this one.

December 10, 2012

I felt like the appointment was a bit rushed once the doctor came in, but the overall care was excellent.

November 26, 2012

provider was Awsome! he was quick and answered all my questions!

November 19, 2012

I really did like the Provider he was very polite and explained to me in detail the Medications that I was going to be taking and the interactions with my other medications. thanks!

November 05, 2012

He was rude. Quick to make a diagnosis ( one theat was later proved to be wrong). And showed no concern in cgangong a treatment plan prescribed by my doctoer that had been helping me. And leaving me with no alternative tratment at all.

November 05, 2012

I have tried to get our son-in-law who has some major health problems to switch, but I have no had much luck. This is how positive I feel about this practice.

October 08, 2012

The PA and NP were great. The Physician appeared to be in teaching mode but was very helpful.

October 01, 2012

Pulgiano is awesome. I recommend him all the time

October 01, 2012

He has a really down to earth, friendly personality and took the time to really listen to me and I really appreciate that in a doctor

September 20, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano spends enough time with me to learn all he needs to about my condition and asks me questions about it so that he can advise me or he just takes care of it. I like him very much and am well satisfied with the care that he has provided me. I do ask that if he would not mind--could I have a 90 day supply of most of my meds--that way they do not cost me quite so much. I did forget to mention this to him.

September 11, 2012

Fact is, I've been addressing my current health concerns with other facilities and physicians for over ten years now. This if the FIRST TIME a physician seems to have listened to what I had to say about my health and history and actually thought outside the box, so to speak. I would absolutely recommend not only this facility, but my physician in particular!

September 10, 2012

I have seen a few different internal medicine docs at South Jordan, and Dr. Pulgiano was my favorite so far. He was direct and thorough and I felt very good about that visit (even though I was sick).

September 03, 2012

Excellent best ever service

August 27, 2012

Excellent Dr and PA and the facility is beautiful (felt like a day spa)

August 13, 2012

I was very happy with Dr. Pulgiano and I've already recommended some friends and family to him. Awesome Job!! :)

August 13, 2012

We really appreciate Dr. Pulgiano and his concern for us

August 10, 2012

So they put me in with Dr. Pulgiano. I don't feel that he listened to me, my experience was bad. I feel that my visit was a waste of my time and hard earned money.

August 01, 2012

It is not bad experience but I think the they talk very fast without letting me express other problem or concern I might have.

July 31, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano seemed hurried, not very friendly and it seemed like he couldn't wait to get out of the room. Quickest physical I've ever had by a doctor.

July 30, 2012

Good

July 30, 2012

good

July 10, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano was a no nonsense provider. I love that. He came in and listened. Took care of my questions and I was done. I can tell he valued my time.

July 05, 2012

This visit was for a physical; I had no specific medical complaints. The Dr. had very little in the way of comments - he ordered a battery of blood/urine analyticals; he did not explain what the analyticals were and when I was contacted all the informati

July 02, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano diagnosed my issue quickly, explained to me what was going on in a clear manner, prescribed and explained a medication that was very effective and made sure I understood and was comfortable with everything.

July 02, 2012

Excellent experience for a medical facility.

April 28, 2012

This physician did a 30 second examination and had his mind made up about me and my condition. He didn't ask me questions about this chronic condition. I only came to this provider because my PCP was booked solid. I will never refer anyone to this physician and I will surely never go back to his clinic for even the simplest of issues. It's appalling to me that this person made money off me.

April 28, 2012

Was very good and attentive. Listened and showed genuined concern. Recommended Dr. P to my husband.

April 25, 2012

Very good first impression of Dr. Pulgiano

April 25, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano is a wonderful provider, he cares enough to tell you what you need and makes sure you are comfortable with the decision, he is a take no bull provider and I love his care and personality

April 07, 2012

I'm considering making him my primary care doctor

April 04, 2012

Follow up appointment scheduled, which is good, I do have additional questions.

March 16, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano was clear, concise, and to the point, I liked my visit with him

March 16, 2012

Dr. Pulgiano was very nice and explained things in a plain way that we could understand without feeling he was talking down to us or belittling our intelegence. He seems to be very knowledgable and it is a comfort to know that he is the one taking care of my husband.

March 09, 2012

I found Dr. Pulgiano well informed and confidentand willing to refer if needed.

March 06, 2012

The doctor was very matter of fact, though he was complete in his explanations. He did allow me to ask questions and feel more comfortable.

January 20, 2012

My first visit with him and I felt comfortable. He called on lab results less than 3 hours after I visited the lab. Would recommend this provider

January 18, 2012

very good

January 06, 2012

Dr. P. was easy to be relaxed with. He showed confidence, friendliness and concern, offering two stages of remedy for sinusitus. I could use nose spray first and then move on to antibiotics after a few days if the results weren't good. Nice to not have to return for the antibiotics. Nice that he gave me the option to decide if I needed them or not.

January 05, 2012

He was so nice and he made sure I understood what he was trying to tell me.
