    Dr Contino always shows that he cares about his patients. He is very knowledgeable and because of him and his treatment plan, the cancer was caught very early. He has always been honest and always included me in decisions about care. I highly recommend him.

    The doctor was misogynistic. He belittled my condition, dismissed what I have experienced as impossible, and went on to state that I would be though menopause in six months to a year (which is completely incorrect by my family history and current state of peri menopause) and the cysts would no longer be an issue, but that if they actually bothered me (which they do) it would require another appointment, and proceeded to "assure" me in a most condescending manner, that he could take care of it real quick.
