What People Say About Dr. Emma Dilorio, MD

My experience with Dr. DiIorio has been very good. She listened carefully to my explanation of my problems, clearly explained my options, and was sympathetic. She also has a sense of humor which I appreciate. She kindly saw me on very short notice, and later phoned me with a recommendation to see a specialist instead of the pain doctor I was scheduled to see. I recommend her for consultation and treatment.

First thing, reading my MRI reports which lists disk herniations in cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine, she flips the pages saying - “that’s nothing.” Then disparages my former doctors. Totally dismisses my pain, “I don’t see why that should give you pain.” She zeros in on my MRI of the knee and 5 or 6 times, tries to convince me to let her give me a cortisone shot! Pokes me a few times, says I have fibromyalgia and gives me RX. After having side effects, I was told not to bother to return.

Dr. DiIorio is a wonderful doctor in every way. Her assessment was both skilled and kind. She explained options and her recommendation in ways that were quite understandable. So happy to be under her care.

I was desperately looking for a good doctor to give me answers and guide me through this process. Initially, I loved her and I thought she was going to be able to help me. It turns out she doesn’t listen and can become very rude and impatient. She doesn’t really show any sympathy or listen to you when you tell her your symptoms or side effects of the medication. She refuses to believe that it has anything to do with the medication and laughs at you. :( Sadly going to look for new doctor. Sigh.

Why was the total bill $1,849.00. Yes, our insurance company paid some of it, but $630.00 of it was out of pocket expense for what was labled a significant evaluation. The medical and the business staff disagreed with each other as to the reason for the inflated cost. The doctor assured me the pain in my hip would be gone the next day with the injection she gave me. It didn't work and was told the pain was being caused by my scoliosis lower back pain. I didn't have any lower back pain.

I agree with the previous reviews. I too went to visit her a couple years ago and did not have a good experience....exactly what the others said about her. When I was recently recommend to see her again (and btw she brushed it off like my pain was no big deal and did not care), I looked her name up and saw these reviews, and will definitely not be going back to her! Glad to know to that it wasn't just me who felt the same way!

For some reason, Dr. DiIorio seems to be always in a hurry and does not appear to listen and interact effectively. She also becomes inpatient and agitated when posting health related questions. At times, she even exhibits a rude behavior. In my view, this causes a negative effect with the patient - doctor relationship. Furthermore, if one decides to consult with another doctor within the same practice, Dr. DiIorio becomes offended and blocks any attempts to attain an alternate appointment.

Dr. DiIorio will order test after test. She does not listen and is impatient and can be quite abrupt and rude. She appears to be in a hurry and does not take the time to listen. My experience has been frustrating. Two years of appointments, tests, drugs, and still guessing for a diagnosis. Find someone else!
