He is one of the kindest doctor I have ever met. He is empathetic and a great listener. His staff is always kind.
November 01, 2021
Answered all my questions.

Paying to park at PIH facilities is just wrong. The gate for the Putnum entrance was closed with no direction on where to go to park. Due to this I was late getting to my appointment. In addition when it came time to pay the older patients we're having an extremely hard time making their payments. There should be someone there to assist them.

Very friendly and knowledgeable man. He understood what I needed and prescribed the correct medication for my skin condition. I am very grateful.

Dr. Britto fully and clearly explained two options to deal with my issue allowing me an easy decision.

Dr. Britto explained details of the future care and shows compassion which is missing a lot from health care providers.

He listened to me and didn't pressure me to have unnecessary surgery as other doctors have done. Respected my wishes and concerns.

Yes, up front, the office, they helped me because that was the first time there with the tablet. I didn't know how to use it. They helped me and then Dr. Britto, he, my brother is a stroke patient and doesn't, can't carry a conversation. So he really helped me a lot make him understand. Very, very great doctor. Awesome. Thank you.

This visit is not one I chose but because of my health situation was part of the process so the doctor and staff were great I'm just the nervous one with this being all new to me

Doctor listened and was very nice, made it very comfortable.

Very professional and friendly staff. Dr. Britto was also professional and really listened to my concerns and questions. He explained options and outcomes to help me in my decision making. His staff accommodated my need to get in before my appointment time as I explained my need to leave timely to bring a family member to USC for a serious medical procedure. Very respectful of my situation.

I had been referred to the wrong doctor. I have breast cancer; but have no interest in reconstructive surgery. I questioned my provider when I was referred; but was told that was where I should go. Dr. Britto was excellent - but not what I needed. His office made an appointment for me with an appropriate doctor.

Dr. Britto is experienced, nice and patient with me, he answered all my questions, explained the procedures very well. It's my 1st time to encounter with skin cancer, and I trust Dr. Britto to provide the best care and treatment for me.

Dr. Britto seems to be one of your more talented doctors. He seems to really engage you to find out what you need, what he needs to know and and is is quick with an answer. He's worked on me before for cancer, basal cell carcinoma and this is a squamous cell carcinoma that he's going to work with. And I would recommend him highly to anyone.

Dr. explained the options very well.

I was taken into the exam room by a young man. He asked what I was doing there I told him for reconstructive surgery eval. Long pause . . then I told him what kind. He looked at me, then the paper work and then said they had put my paperwork in the wrong slot and left. Through the entire episode with him he was abrupt, short, and had absolutely no sign of positive "bed side" manner at all. After several minutes a sweet young lady came in. I told her what had just happened. She was sorry and very kind. After she did vitals the experience became positive. She gets a gold star for turning the situation around. The Dr was late but explained the previous patient was complicated. No problem, sometimes we need more time than other times. I'm glad he gave her the care she needed. I had a positive experience meeting with the Dr.

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Dr. Britto treated me with compassion. I greatly appreciated his genuine care.

Dr. Britto took the time to listen to my medical issue and concerns. He explained possible procedures and explained the complications that could arise from removing a significant amount of tissue from my thigh.

Dr. Britto is the best! I have had bad luck with doctors over the years but I have recently found myself in the hands of some great doctors, starting with Dr. Britto. I have already recommended him to others going through the same thing I am. He's genuine and cares. It shows.

With my doctor I felt extremely comfortable. He went over the options with me. He went over the lab work that we did when we sent the information in it was melanoma level 3 . For the moles and I just think the way he explained it and what happened and what is plans are to do in the near future. Which we are going to do a surgery to remove some of the melanoma. I feel extremely comfortable with him. Thank you.

Dr Britto was awesome
February 17, 2021
He spent a number of minutes with us, was very interested in what are questions and what we had to say. He was the surgeon who will be helping plastic surgeon who will be helping with a surgeon. I liked him very much and I think he's more than capable.
