He was excellent and explained things very well. We went looking for information and guidance and we are confident that he is the right doctor for us.
great experience, looking forward to receiving treatment
The doctor was super supportive, helpful, and optimistic about my treatment. He was not judgmental and treated me with respect. He presented a plan with concern for my health and future plans. He and the staff appeared eager to help me. I am excited about working with him more.
Beat doctor's office EVER! I've been here several times and had a lot of phone interactions also, and every experience is always great.
very friendly. doctor was running late because of a pervious emergency, but we were not rushed and we were informed of the delay. they all made you feel very comfortable.
Dr. Sanfallipo is very nice. He listened to me very well. very good bedside manner.
Dr. Sanfilippo is excellent. He listened carefully, knew my medical history, and was knowledgeable. I trust and respect him.
Dr. Sanfilippo did not spend enough time with me during this visit. There was a lot of information to cover in a very short time. I understood what he was telling me but I feel he could have spent some more time conversing with me, instead of just giving me information.
I have found this care provider to be very friendly and kind. He is obviously knowledgeable in his field and I'm sure is very helpful to those patients struggling with infertility. I came to him with two concerns, one more of a priority to me than the other. He spent most of our time together discussing my secondary concern, rather than my primary one. I had to remind him of my primary concern and regretted after I left the office that we didn't have more of an opportunity to discuss lifestyle changes or other ways that I might be able to address that primary concern. The treatment plan that he gave me was more tailored to my secondary concern.
felt very rushed by both MD and the nurse
I appreciate the last minute appointment instead of being sent to the ER! Dr Sanfilipo is always kind and thorough!
I am beyond thrilled with Dr. Sanfilippo and the whole practice. I am looking forward to working with them in the future as we try to expand our family. They are amazing and I will definitely refer any family/friends to this practice and specifically Dr. Sanfilippo.
I had a very good experience. I got a lot of questions answered that i was worried about.
My husband and I were very impressed with Dr Sanfilippo! I think we asked the same question the second time at one point in the visit and he did not make fun of it. He also was very attentive to our concerns and wishes and listened carefully. Thank you Dr Sanfilippo!
I was very distraught when I made my appointment. Shannon took time to comfort and reassure me. Every time I visit Dr. Sanfilippo, I want to hug him because he makes me feel like he's doing everything in his power to help my husband and I with infertility. He takes time to answer all of my questions and reassures me of all the decisions I've made. He is an amazing doctor and I would strongly recommend him to anyone I care about. Thank you.
absolutely love this medical team. Very kind and caring to my child and explained everything to me clearly.
Dr. Sanfilipo is an excellent provider and listens to what I have to say. He is excellent
everything with dr San fillipo has been great
Dr. Sanfilippo always shows concern and listens to your problems. He makes sure before you leave his office all of your questions are answered and if not tells you to feel free to call if you think of something else you want answered.
The only thing I didn't like was the first thing out off the month was you need to loss weight.
Everyone in the office from scheduling, check in, MA'S, CRNP, RN, and the doctor was very kind pleasant and patient! I had an excellent experience.
We were very pleased with the care and compassion shown to us by Roxanna Twedt, MD as well as Dr. Joseph Sanfilippo. My 11 year old felt at ease during this appt.
I will definitely recommend to any of my colleagues/friends!!
the wait was long but a significant amount of time was spent with me. I would not change a thing
It was a good experience I got the answers I needed and the Dr and his staff were very polite and very helpful as well.....Thank you.
I feel that he is the best Doctor he show you that he care and he is there to help you feel better and to reach the goal that you want in your health.
