Referred by a professional in the lyme disease community, my family made a three hour car trip to see Dr. Visconti and review my child's case. After a productive talk he ordered a battery of blood work to test for various lime disease indicators. However the process took three hours of waiting in his lobby, waiting in the room, waiting in the lobby again and then back in a room to take my child's blood. For one 5 year old boy it was a bit much, but for his sake we stuck it out. Then the following week had him into the Quest Diagnostic center to do the rest of the blood work, nearly fifteen vials in all, which was no picnic. Still, we are doing what we need to do to get my boy healthy again.

After the test results came in we contacted Dr. Visconti to get his opinion and put him in contact with our family pediatrician. As soon as Dr. Visconti realized that he would not be the primary care provider he ceased returning phone calls. For three weeks our family pediatrician has been trying to get him to pick up and send more than a fax back to her office.

I'm extremely angry that after finding that my child still has lyme disease, he has delayed giving my pediatrician any sort of guidance on next steps. We were perfectly happy paying him to be the specialist, that he purports to be, to help guide our pediatrician on treatment options. Now I still have a sick boy and no guidance. Avoid Dr. Visconti unless you want to keep making long drives to Staten Island, NY. He's obviously only interested in growing his personal practice instead of helping a sick child.

Dr. Visconti treated me for lyme disease, I had gone 3 yrs being misdiagnosed. Thank you Dr. Visonti you gave me back my life when I was 17. I would have never been able to even start college without you. I'm now studying for my masters/ cpa license and I couldn't have done it without you. A million thanks =)

Dr. Visconti is the last of a dying breed. He always is very thorough and makes it a point to follow-up with his patients. He was the one who figured out I had lime disease when all other doctors thought I had multiple sclerosis. I highly praise this doctor for his dedication to the medical profession and the people he sees as his patients. I wish there were more doctors like him.
