Ratings for Dr. Salvatore R. Tuzzo
I had an unnerving experience with Dr. Tuzzo. During our session he talked about his son's startup and asked me for advice, was unavailable by phone, and fraudulently billed me on multiple occasions despite not seeing him for over a year! Phone number on statement doesn't work so I informed him 3 times and on the 3rd time he told me in a raised voice that I have to call his billing person to resolve this. Only got resolved when I threatened to report him to the better business bureau. He is a crook!
Tuzzo is absent minded, and potentially senile, to the point where he wrote prescriptions incorrectly about 50% of the time. When faced with the news that a pharmacy was legally forced to reject his prescription, he seemed to habitually insist that I stop going to those pharmacies. He uses a medical billing service that often does not attempt to bill the insurance company (and gives up attempts to collect the insurance portion of payment at the first sign of resistance), so watch the invoices very carefully! It was also more than a little off-putting that I had to listen to his repeated ramblings about "how beautiful foreign women are".
