The actual time spent with the doctor was good... he was attentive and informative, and getting an x-ray was fast and painless. But the waiting room was hot and so crowded that not everyone had seats, the wait was more than30 minutes, and the office wasn't taking credit cards and could only accept exact change for a cash payment.

Dr. Scilaris was wonderful. He was attentive, honest, and provided me with options. They took an x-ray on my knee and also analyzed the results within 15 minutes!

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 intoeach 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.

I did not have to wait at all. I came on time and Dr. Capiola (Dr. Scilaris' partner) saw me right away. He is an expert in the field and took the time to explain my knee and shoulder injuries andmy different options to improve both. In addition, he also took the time to refer and schedule an appointment with an optomologist for me for something unrelated. I would highly recommend Dr. Capiola.

Very good visit. He is extremely nice and takes the time to explain exactly what the issue is, and is conservative in his diagnostics and doesn't jump to any quick conclusions. Highly recommended.

Scilaris is very friendly but his receptionists are not. They seemed to have no patience and no people skills. The wait time was long too. I waited an hour until I finally saw him.

Dr. Scilaris examined my ankle and explained my condition clearly and counselled me on the wayforward. I especially liked that he listened to my priorities and offered solutions that suit my particular circumstances. I consider this quite an ideal doctor experience! I would definitely recommend Dr. Scilaris and his colleagues.

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. I only wish his office was more punctual with appointments.

Excellent bedside manner, professional. However, too busy if you need anything after you leave the Office. When calling him from the pharmacy, same day of our appt. to ask if we can substitute a prescription item, as insurance would not coverit, still waiting over an 1 hr. The Office said the Dr. cannot be interrupted until he finishes seeing his patients.

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!
