My experience with Dr Lo Giudice has been super positive. The doctor has been very professional and willing to listen and to explain carefully. Having a problem of high blood pressure and being a person (and a patient) a bit anxious, I have really appreciated the patience and the calming attitude of Dr Lo Giudice, that has greatly helped me to relax and to explain all my symptoms and family medical history.
