    Dr. Contino was very compassionate and was very caring. He made me feel very comfortable. His nurse Gail was very kind. She explained what I was to expect when I had my biopsy, because she had already told me everything, I was so much more comfortable during the biopsy.

    Dr. Contino is a great doctor.  His "bedside manner" is exceptional.  He feels your joy and pain with you.

    I don't feel like he will continue to see me as a patient if I do not follow his care plan exactly.  I have a sensible plan that I would like to follow, but he has shown total resistance to it.

    I understand why the surgeon didn't want to tell me how many calcifications would be biopsied, but I wish he would have.
