Dr. Immatteo is amazing. Not only is she thorough in her explanation, but she makes me feel that I am not being rushed out. Most doctors I've visited with don't take the time she does. Amazing doctor and great staff she has.

She is the GOLD STANDARD for patient care! She is very knowledgeable, understanding, competent, caring and sensitive to your needs. She could give a seminar on doctor/patient relationships to a lot of doctors. Simply, I wish ALL my doctors had her ability to listen and possessed her great bedside manner...She is also conservative in her approach to treatment which is perfect for me.

Dr. Iammetteo really cares. You can just tell. She was concerned about combating my nasal drip symptom and congestion, administered the proper allergy test and determined that I have an extreme allergy to dust. She prescribed the appropriate medications to help my symptoms and gave me a host of other home remedies to significantly reduce dust mites in the house and even allergen cloths to wipe down Blue, my male feline. It was a good visit. Thank you.

It was my first appointment with Dr. Iammatteo, I found her to be very thorough, answered all my questions, and was sincere in her care.

First time in my life I have encountered a Dr. who understands my rare condition and can be of help. I have searched for someone like this for more than 25 years and have generally been considered strange or puzzling or neurotic. The fact is I have a very rare auto immune condition that most doctors never encounter. Dr. Iammatteo not only understands what it is, but came up with an immediate strategy for managing it. My husband and I are so grateful to have found her and the team she has put together to deal with this condition.

I was so impressed with her knowledge, articulate explanations and thoroughness! She treated me as if I was important, even though my problem is not of a critical nature at this time. I have so much confidence in her and appreciate her taking the time to sort out my multiple allergic/side effect reactions to various drugs.
