Patient Reviews and Recommendations for Dr. Carissa Summa, DO

Wait time is long, office staff rude and unprofessional. When Dr. Summa finally comes into the room, she is in and out too quickly.
I would not recommend this dr. Wait time is over an hour to see her and even after you get in the room you still have to wait twenty minutes. Not woth it
Wait time absolutely ridiculous and unacceptable! Almost two hours, unacceptable!
Dr.Carissa Summa was very good. I waited less than 5 minutes. The doctor was very pleasant and gentle to my situation, thanks Doctor, see you soon.
