I have been a patient of Dr. Sanfilippo for 24 years. She has always provided me with excellent care. Her bedside manner is outstanding - she is knowledgeable, empathetic, always taking her time to explain and answer any questions. In the years that I have been a patient of hers, she has created an environment in which I have always been made to feel comfortable, confident in the proper care I received and reassured about any concerns I had. I am grateful to have her as part of my medical care and I would highly recommend her. Thank you Dr. Sanfilippo!

Dr Diane Sanfilippo and her staff are of the highest quality. I have worked along side of her in the hospital setting and have been her patient for many years. She stays current in her field of OB/GYN and gives safe,personalized and compassionate care . She is open and receptive to birth options for her pregnant patients . I have always felt confident and reassured in her abilities as a professional at the hospital bedside and as my personal physician .

scheduled un-needed surgery. I had complications after and was told by 2 other OB/GYNs that she obviously did not know what she was doing. NEVER a return phone call or follow-up of any kind.

Dr Sanfilippo is an excellent OB/GYN with an excellent staff. I consulted Dr Sanfillippo in my first trimester of pregnancy but unfotunately had to discontinue as it was too far for me to reach to her office for consultation. I had a very tough time during my pregnancy and had a problem of motion sickness so I did not want to travel long. I wish my husband and me could have an apartment close to Dr Sanfillippo's Office so that I could have got the best care for my prenancy,

Dr. Diane SanFilippo is an outstanding doctor's doctor. I would highly recommend her to family, colleagues and friends. She listens, understands and cares for her patient. She answers your questions. She allows you time to consider options. She has excellent skills and I trust her. Her wonderful staff is very responsive. Her nurse Paula, scheduler Carol and secretary Mary call back as promised and follow through. The office and rooms are new, spotless and very efficient. Thank you, Doctor!

I have been going to this doctor less than three years now and boy am I glad! I recently was admitted to the ER for severe vaginal bleeding. I made an appointment and over the phone and she had the nerve to say "well you're not bleeding TO DEATH!" WHAT?!? When I got there she saw for herself how bad it was, She also left me in the room with a mini box of TISSUES to clean up, mind you I had to yell for help since I nearly passed out! UNREAL-totally overlooked my case, PLEASE don't let it be you!

Dr. Sanfilippo and the staff are amazing. They easily accommodated my need for an urgent visit and followed up with me quickly on my test results. Everyone I see in the office are kind, compassionate and truly concerned for my well-being. .

Do not go to this doctor! She said my daughter needed surgery to take care of a cyst. On the day of the surgery about an hour before going in, the doctor said "We don't HAVE to do it" ....WHAT! As a parent this is an extremely scary time. We went ahead with the surgery but now I wish we hadn't. She barely even talked to us after the surgery. I believe the doctor screwed something up because my daughter has constant pains in her abdomen. Dr. Sanfilippo lacks a bedside manner. 0 stars!!!!!!!!
