I was so impressed with Dr Firilas I wish now that he did my original surgery as I know it would have gone well. At least he can correct the mistake right in the office and I will be going back to have him do so.

I don’t as scheduled for two procedures after the initial appt. I spoke with the scheduling agent multiple times for each procedure which were are different locations. Each procedure required a prep measures. I went to each location and neither place performed the procedures. The first Roper location said they didn’t know how to do the test. The second one was over an hour from my home. And both my husband and I took off work. While I’m the parking lot, I received a call saying that the person doing the procedure was not available and that I should have been notified the day before. Shouldn’t more than one person be available? This is a brief summary of my experiences with Dr Firilas. I spent extensive amounts of time speaking with the office staff to be misdirected for my tests. I drive over an hour to his office and received a bill for services (charges were $300 plus for a visit) that he did not provide. Unfortunately, I cannot give lower than one star for his rating.

After meeting Dr. Firilas for the first time I felt very comfortable with him, being vain and embarrassed he put me at ease. He was very professional and confident in his profession. Will recommend him to everyone I know

Dr. Firilas saved my life. I was diagnosed with C-Diff and had been treated multiple times with antibiotics. He did a fecal transplant on me and my symptoms began to clear up almost immediately. I was back to myself within a few days. He is amazing!!!

Stay far away! Saw Firilas for a rectal prolapse (I had lost 12 lbs in 4 weeks, severe pain, rectum protruding, AND history of colon cancer in my family) and after a quick table exam, he gave me 2 options: remove my entire colon, or accept the fact that “if you were ever abused in your lifetime, this is what happens”. What?? Fast forward 2 weeks and thank you Lord for directing me to Dr. Margarita Murphy. She immediately did a colonoscopy and found 1. Tumor on my colon, 2. Cyst on my ovary and 3. Severe rectal prolapse. I was in surgery 2 days later (and that 2 hour surgery turned into a 5 hour surgery). I believe that Dr. Murphy not only improved my quality of life but also saved my life. I absolutely intend on following up and filing a complaint with this doctor’s superiors.

From 5 years ago when I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and having suffered having several seizures at a local hospital I got transferred to Charleston where Dr Firilas took excellent care of me and his bedside manner, caring, compassion, and willingness to listen thoroughly let me know this Dr had my quality of life at hand. I THANK GOD for the use of allowing him to help get my Crohn’s resolved and I can live a normal life again. I couldn’t ask for a better COLORECTOL SURGEON?????

I met Dr Firilas 8 months ago and was immediately impressed by his caring and compassion. He was easy to talk to and pretty quickly diagnosed my illness. I needed to be under the care of other specialists before he could do surgery and he surrounded me with a great team. He performed the surgery a few weeks ago and I am making a super recovery. He is an excellent Dr and surgeon I will always be thankful that I when I needed the best medical care I found him.
