    Patient Reviews

    Typically you are seen right away. Dr Scilaris has taken good care of me during my workers comp claim. He is always able to answer questions and well equipped to handle my neurotic questions regarding my injury. (I basically come into each appointment with a list in my head of what to ask.) There have been times where I have had longer waits in the office and it can start to feel like a Worker’s Comp/Injury factory, but this has only happened on two occasions for me. I also had a few appointments early on with a different doctor in the practice after my initial consultation with Dr Scilaris. This was confusing and caused a small amount of inconsistency in the treatment. Overall I rate Dr. Scilaris very highly. I am still in the process of healing and will continue to see him.

    Thomas Scilaris is a fantastic doctor and a great human being. He is knowledgeable, compassionate and gives highly practical advice. He is a great listener and does not suggest invasive procedures unless the patient absolutely needs them.

    Feedback is really important when you are relying on the internet to find a doctor. I picked Dr. Scilaris based solely on the feedback I read. It was very helpful and honest. The office staff are professional and friendly, and Dr. Scilaris is the best as far as I’m concerned. He takes his time and explains things to you so that you understand exactly what is going on in your body. I would definitely recommend Dr. Scilaris to others and to you looking for a doctor on ZocDoc. Keep up the good work!
