SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr. Pagano is an excellent physician - the best I have ever experienced! I am very pleased.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr. Pagano does a great job of remembering me, even if I haven't seen her for over a year. she listens to my concerns fully and explains what is going on clearly. The treatment was explained clearly and typed up in notes for me clearly in case I need to refer to them later.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Dr is taking a very conservative approach to treat my knee problem. She told me that walking is bad for my knee, but swimming and biking is okay!!! I have to walk in my daily routines and I'm having pain. she didn't seem to think that my pain is bad enough for an injection. she recommends oral drugs and therapy instead. I'd like to have more immediate relief.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Dr. Pagano is wonderful and I am SO pleased she is my PC!

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

Dr. Pagano was great--listened carefully, explained the nature of my knee problems and included me in the decision about what to do about them. I only wish I had known about her sooner! She needs to be listed under sports medicine rather than just family practice so those of us whose bodies are deteriorating can find her!

SHC Patient, Dec 2017
