Dr. DeMilio treated me for about 4-5 years. He really listened to my concerns and took my side effects seriously. I was not an easy patient and suffer from both mental and physical illness. He worked with my other doctors and was very thorough. He cared about my well being. He showed compassion and he is up to date with the latest information in psychiatry. He also makes himself available for emergencies. If I hadn’t moved, he’d still be my psychiatrist. He’s a wonderful man and psychiatrist. He even waived some of my fees during the beginning COVID-19. I highly recommend Dr. DeMilio. I have recommended him to friends who are also very happy with his treatment methods

If you are looking for hassle free medications, call this guy. If you are looking for help, for advice, for psychiatric care, keep looking. He's not your guy.

I have been seeing Dr. Demilio for about a year. He has been exceptional in his care and attention. In particular with getting my medication precisely where it needs to be.

Extremely unprofessional, I have worked with Dr. Demilio for over a year and it is clear he has not changed his ways in 40 years. He mocked my anxiety last time we had an appointment and made me cry. He mocked my anxiety and MY DAD HAD JUST DIED. I have no way to contact him because he has no phone number available. He has strict 20 minute appointments where he does not listen to anything you are saying, and just goes on tangents regarding different medications (he keeps explaining the same medication multiple times, yet I have been on it for 2 years and he has explained it already before, he is basically a broken record and cannot synthesize your symptoms/concerns and respond in a reasonable manner). If I could give him 0 stars, I would. He is a horrible provider and to be honest I have no idea why he is still practicing medicine. He is one of the worst physicians I have ever had.

I would honestly give this a guy a zero if that was a choice. My daughter and I went to refill some meds, but when we went inside, he was nothing but rude. He asked us questions as if we toddlers. My daughter started crying and instead of doing what almost anyone else would, he asked her why she was crying in the rudest manner possible. She finally lost it and started cursing him out. The meeting ended with a refusal for the prescription and a threat to call the ER. Would not recommend at all.

My daughter saw him in his PA office. He was positive and to the point. He enable her to discuss her issues and his response was helpful and straightforward as she is not easy to deal with

I find the negative comments to be very surprising. These descriptions are completely different from my experience with Dr. Demilio. I find him to be very thoughtful in his questions, and he encourages the patient to be part of the decision making process. He does not rush to over-medicate, but allows a patient to try different things to reach the optimal result. We have been seeing him for over a year, and are very pleased.

I appreciated the doctor's thoughtfulness and thoroughness in taking time to fully evaluate my daughter before jumping to medication. He seems very knowledgeable. He has a brisk manner but I feel confident with my daughter being his patient.

Complained to me that he had too many patients. Asked me how I expected him to fix my son when no one has in 11 years. I told him it didn't seem that he cared for my son. He told me to get out of his office. I was calm. PLEASE go see another doctor.
