I am a long-term person with a disability who has suffered unusual asthma attacks this summer that were so severe my regular pulmonologist I have seen for over 20 years made a referral to Dr. Mauriello. I have never seen a more thorough physician. He asked me my entire history with my Dr., questions about my environment at home, my understanding about my disease, my habits during the day, past tests I had, informed me about things I did not know, offered his personal perspective, gave me allergy testing, (both the initial and the needle testing) and, given my history) in the new patient visit, I knew the results right away! It was literally an all day appointment, but it was well worth the wait. He explained the tools that I would use as a followup appointment and why they were necessary. I got a list of the items that were tested on the allergy testing. It was the most incredible experience of my life. My pulmonologist was looking for an underlying condition and, after years, I believe we may be on the way of discovering it. I actually broke down in the parking lot when I left the office. He is persistent in his questioning to get what he needs from you, but that is what makes him absolutely wonderful! His staff is warm and professional, as well. What a treasure!
