Dr. Busillo was great! He made me feel very comfortable even though I was nervous about my appointment. He was thorough and discussed everything in a way that was easy for me to understand. I had a great experience from themoment I walked into the office and checked-in to the moment I walked out. I would definitely recommend Dr. Busillo and his staff.

The doctor did not give any explanation of what condition I may / may not have, nor recommended action. The only result of the visit was a Hep B shot that I did not ask for. At the end of thevisit the doctor left me alone in the exam room without even telling me it was over! I sat there waiting for the doctor to come back - until my patience ran out.

Absolutely horrible experience. I had two visits and both were useless. Two different types of medication were prescribed and neither worked. I had to wait for an hour to see the doctor on my second appointment despite being on time. Thedoctor cares more about the money than the patient. Does not perform any type of tests whatsoever. This third visit was a total scam because all the doctor did was refer me to another doctor. Why couldn’t he do that by email, phone, or the NYU Langone app? Total waste of time and money. This doctor has wasted my two months and a lot of my money in copayments. Don’t even bother going to him!

I spent lots of time trying to find a doctor who would care not just rush you and do unnecessary tests without follow up. I am very thankful for finding Dr Busillo, he is a good caring professional who at leastwas able to guide me on right track with illness I have. I saw 5 docs till I finally found a good one. He is very knowledgeable and precise. strongly recommend

Dr. Busillo and his staff were great. He seems like a very skilled diagnostician and both times I saw him, he did a wonderful job explaining what he was doing and why. I left feeling reassured about why I was feelingsick. After my first appointment, he personally called to let me know the results. Also, the staff at the front desk is courteous, quick, mindful of your time, and skilled.

It would be appreciated to notify patients if there are appreciable extra charges for the services booked for the appointment. I took the time to note down why I was coming and deselected "general consult". The office staff automatically assumedthat I would pay several times my normal copay for an office consult. In addition I was to sign a waiver becoming responsible for any and all costs related to vaccines that my insurance would not cover (without explaining to me which they were and how much money we were talking about).

I went into his office and told him my symptoms. He was clueless.I gave him suggestions and mentioned I was scratched pretty bad by a stray cat months ago. He ordered testing for things that did not match any of mysymptoms. I got my results back for 1 out of the 2 stool samples. It's been months and I still don't have my full results. I didn't even get a call. No follow up. Nothing. Also, during my visit Dr Busillo did mention that my wounds looked infected yet he did nothing. I left there empty handed. It doesn't really matter now because weeks later I ended up in the emergency room. It turns out I had a superimposed infection. All in all I wouldn't recommend him. You can do better.

Dr. Busillo was very dismissive and unwilling to provide much assistance simply because he couldn't *see* a problem, despite my describing a litany of symptoms. I don't recommend him.

Completely unresponsive and irresponsible. I called him multiple times before receiving a phone call over 5 hours later. I have been suffering a serious infection for a number of weeks and my antibiotic prescription was running out and I neededhim to refill it. He said he would call my pharmacy to refill it. I arrive at the pharmacy later that night to find out he never called. I call his office again a number of times and still he refused to call me back. It has been the next day and he still has not made any effort to call me back. I will never return to Dr. Busillo and I would advise everyone to please consider another doctor.
