Had a ivc filter placed in 2017 This doctor is in a class by himself!! You don't usually see a doctor with almost all 5 star ratings There's a good reason for them!

A few years back, Dr. Squillaro saved my mom’s life by performing emergency surgery to repair an already-ruptured aortic aneurysm. Two weeks ago, he installed an IVC filter to protect her heart and lungs from blood clots in both legs. He is not just an amazing surgeon; his bedside manner is second to none. His skill as a surgeon – and the hugs he gives my mom, are equally why she is still with us!

I first met Dr. Squillaro when I had to have a consult with him regarding s surgical procedure that I needed. In our first meeting, he put me at ease with his soothing personality. He then went on to explain step by step what the procedure would encompass and all of the possible results. I felt very comfortable with his explanations and answers to all of my questions. Dr. Squillaro took the time to answer all of my questions regarding the operation and my follow-up questions afterwards.

Dr.Squillaro removed a wedge of my lung due to lung cancer. He explained everything to me and was very open and honest. After the surgery I did not have any pain, I didn’t even take an aspirin. Dr. Squillaro has made it important for follow up care and follows my progress. Besides being a great surgeon he is a nice guy.

Dear Dr. Squillaro, A few months ago my husband Manny was brought to Jersey Shore Med. Center in serious condition. His doctors were there for him. The staff treated him royally. When the time came for his surgery it seemed that you had worked on him for hours. You are dedicated to saving lives and we truly believe that you saved his. And we thank God for you. Also, we praise your highly professional office staff as well. Sincerely, Theodora Santiago

How Blessed to have this wonderful surgeon Dr. Squillaro in our lives; our lovely niece an RN referred him to us. At our first consultation he won us over with his compassionate and caring ways to explain every detail the pros and cons of the surgical procedure. He's truly listens to all your questions and takes his time to answer leaving you with peace and confidence with his years of experience and expertise. We highly recommend him! May God Bless YOU Always; surgery was very successful!!

From the first time meeting Dr. Squillaro I knew he was the right choice. the time he takes in explaining exactly what to expect, how the procedure will be done, what results should I expect. Very high level in confidence put my mind at ease. the follow ups after surgery was the same experience, would highly recommend .

Dr. Squillaro is the BEST. Kind, explains everything to you before you make a decision. Did exactly what he said he was going to do. Surgery went well and so did recovery. Speaks to you in lay mans terms so you understand. Very patient and understanding. Answers all of your questions. Does not rush you. Takes as much time as you need. After surgery he spoke to my family and gave them all the information. Love Him to Pieces.

Excellent, caring physician! He has performed two surgeries on me over the years and never a problem. See him every year for a follow up. He never rushes you and explains everything in detail.

Dr. Squillaro is very caring and compassionate. On my first office visit he actually sat and listened to my whole history without interruption, and did not have his head buried in a laptop! My surgery and recuperation went well and I had such confidence in him, I went back to him for my second surgery. I highly recommend him.

My child suffered a critical injury to a femoral artery and was in danger of losing a leg. Dr. Squillaro carefully discussed the prognosis with us and spent 6 hours in emergency surgery repairing the damage. When we encountered a complication later in the treatment (not related to Dr. Squillaro's care), he went out of his way to find a solution for us to allow our child to continue healing. Dr. Squillaro was attentive, compassionate, dedicated, and determined to see our child healthy and home.

I expect to update my review to a higher star, because I’ve yet to have my surgery. Upon learning about my huge hiatal hernia, and being referred to me as a second opinion surgeon, he came to see me in the hospital. I was there for a completely different reason, but my hernia was seen to have gotten worse. In fact my entire stomach is in my chest! My surgery is scheduled. But I wanted to take the time to express how impressed I am with Dr. Squillaro. And that’s saying a lot for me. Cont...

2 weeks after having a loboscomy at a top cancer hospital in the city, I was admitted to the local hospital through the emergency room where I spent 47 days due a serious infection of the chest cavity from the initial surgery. After being treated with many antibiotics with little effect, I met Dr. Squillaro. After performing 3 surgeries, he had successfully removed all of the infection. Throughout the duration, he promised to always do the best he could and was compassionate and understanding.

My husband went to Dr Squillaro’s office two years ago and was very ill. With Dr, Squillaro’s compassionate care, superior knowledge and expertise my husband is functioning well today. My husband and I have total confidence in him. He has always been patient and willing to speak to our children, also. We are very grateful for Dr, Squillaro.
