I was especially impressed with the thoroughness of all aspects of my experience with Ventre Medical. Despite the limitations of personal contact due to the pandemic, I never felt that my care was compromised. The staff was attentive in every way, and my experience with Dr. Caro was also thorough, enjoyable and comforting. Yes, 5 stars
