Patients That Inspire
“Dr. Giusti is a very kind and compassionate person. My brother Robert has 4th stage kidney failure and lost use of his dominant hand due to a fall, leaving him in much pain. Due to Dr. Giusti’s precision surgery, my brother is now independently feeding and caring for himself. Dr. Giusti made him feel as important as any other patient who needs care. I am extremely grateful for the successful surgery and for the kindness and respect, Dr. Giusti shared with my brother and myself. Thank you! Sincerely grateful!” Patti
