I would recommend Dr. Pillai to anyone needing the services of an orthopedic doctor. She is fast and efficient, yet takes time to explain problems in detail. The office is also well run and a pleasure to visit.

Dr. Pillai was excellent. Identified problem with a recommended course of action.
in Lewes, DE |
On the first visit she was thorough and seemed to get right to the issue. I appreciated not having to go through multiple tests. She explained my issue and promoted therapy that would hopefully correct my challenge. Easy to talk to.

She was very rude, when I asked questions I didn't understand she got an attitude...she called out other doctors,to me she acted like she is better then everyone...
in Rehoboth Beach, DE |
Quick appointment. Between not waiting for long in the waiting room, the x-ray techs were fast and the review of outcomes by Dr. Pillai is very professional and on point. Overall great experience.

We really liked how she just listened to everything we had to say. She explained the x-rays and MRI very clearly. She didnt want to rush us into a decision. She was great.
in Milton, DE |
Dr. Pillai was very knowledgeable and personable and explained why I was having the shoulder discomfort I have been experiencing. She offered options for treatment and clearly explained each. I would highly recommend her.

knowledgeable and easy to talk with
Lewes, DE |
First time meeting her. She was very nice, knowledgeable and my visit had a great outcome. She was thorough and spent time showing me my Mri and Xrays and explaining everything. She did not recommend surgery just because she is a surgeon but gave me a better option for my situation. Would highly recommend Dr. Pillai.
in Lewes, Delaware |
Very kind, thoughtful and knowledgable! Staff was efficient and friendly.
in Bridgeville, DE |
She is very personable and gave no impression that she had anything to do except talk to me about my shoulder. They actually saw me before my scheduled appointment. Cool!
