    Very informative physician. Explained in detail what the chemotherapy for my mother's brain tumor was accomplishing. Also, explained what risks to her were in detail. Especially what the chemo could do to her underlying infections and risks if she need surgery while the chemo was still in her system. He is very professional and speaks to us in terms that we understand. He also brings an enormous smile to my mother when he is in his presence, especially during this difficult time.

    If there is a textbook definition of what a "model doctor" should be like, it is Dr. Carillo. He is as caring and personable as he is a world class expert in his field. He is SO patient in explaining and going over reports and his recommendations with you. He seems always eager to see you doing well and is always on top of prescriptions and lab orders. My mother (his patient) was sad when he transferred. His new hospital and patients are blessed to have him!
