He is a highly competent Doctor and he connects well with patients. I have never visited a male gynecologist ever and I was a little apprehensive but Dr. Lilja was very professional and he made me feel very comfortable with his friendly and caring demeanor. He is indeed the best!

My wife has cancer and a G.I. Blockage was life threatening. Local medical team lacked confidence for this complicated issue. Dr. Lilja met with us, listened and discussed fully the range of outcomes and what to expect if we pursued surgery. We went in with eyes wide open. Tough recovery. Wife now has chance for great life. It was hard to get in for that first appointment, but once you are in, he is there day, night, weekends etc. He also has great surgical teammate. DC to San Jose- :-
