Arroyo Grande, CA |
Dr. Filippi is a wonderful doctor! He takes the time to really understand the full details of your issues and your full medical history. A very intelligent and thoughtful listener, he is a kindly and patient doctor who really cares about bringing you the best care to help you enjoy your life. I offer my highest recommendations. Note his fantastic credentials, Harvard, etc. I am so thankful he is helping me overcome chronic bad migraines.

He is the worst doctor who thinks that my past experiences is the cause of the sezures well I did not feel comfortable even talking with him from the stupid things that he was saying now the other doctor who was there was sweet as can be but I will not be going back to this quack named Dr filippi he needs to learn how to talk to people and not continue to doubt them karma
San Luis Obispo, CA |
Terrible physician!! Rude, arrogant, never on time. Don't ever schedule an appointment as the first patient of the day. I've had more then one appointment scheduled in the morning as the first patient of the day. I arrived promptly at 8:30am for an 8:50am appointment and each time was not seen until after 11am. The doctor didn't even bother of show up to see any patient until after 11am. Then he rushes you hough your appointment and could care less about any of your concerns.

Dr. Filippi is an excellent doctor. I had debilitating migraines and used to take pain medicine daily. Now, my migraines are very few and I can function again! It is hard to get an appointment, but worth it if you stick to his treatment plan.
in Los Osos, CA |
I showed up on time for my first appointment and he never showed up. His front office staff did not even know if he was in the building. After no explanation for two hours of waiting, I left. Never got a call back with an explanation. The office staff were clueless about why he was missing.

Very considerate and takes time to make a thorough evaluation and explain options to the patient.

A true professional and a great communicator
San Luis Obispo, CA |
Misdiagnosed a serious physical condition as a mental health issue. Continued with that diagnosis for more than a month without prescribing testing that would have shown that there was a severe physical problem. Delayed treatment because of this misdiagnosis which caused extended suffering. Called four times for an urgent appointment and didn't hear back for a week.

He doesn't seem to care about what you have to say, and if you're overweight he will chalk everything up to that.
