I would like to share how Dr. Pintozzi called me on a (SUNDAY NITE) to inform me of results of a CT scan I was deeply troubled about. My eyes well w/tears, each time I think about how he extended himself to allay my fears & anxiety: I can't thank him enough for service that is not seen in today's world! May God continue to bless him and PLEASE may he be recognized for going above & beyond!
