Dr. Pestana is one of the finest physicians I have ever had the pleasure to know. He is caring, kind, smart as a whip, professional, very tolerant of my endless list of questions, and an excellent problem solver. I have had complete confidence of an excellent outcome from my procedure, mainly because he is in charge of the details. I wish all of my doctors were like him. He is a shining star in his department and I will recommend him highly to anyone I know who could benefit from his services.
