I've known Dr. Maritato since she was with Gateway in Great Kills. The new practice is much smaller and makes for much more individual service. She has an absolutely fantastic manner with my dog. Dr. Maritato loves to play with my dog. She's very concerned that all of her patients get the care they deserve. She answers any and all questions you could think of. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a new vet. You really can't go wrong with her.
