    Dr. Barletta is awesome! He really listens to the patient, he provides care that is compassionate and appropriate to meet the patient?s needs. I really like his Medical Assistant [...] who is kind, reassuring and has a willingness to help the patient. He calls back if you leave him a message and that makes a big difference to me and the quality of healthcare I feel I?m receiving. Dr. B and [...] are a great team. Thanks so much, [...]
