Wonderful bedside mannor, really takes the time with the recovering clients. Finally fixed what the last 2 sergeons didn't or couldn't. Thanks Dr. Q

Poor suturing as far as scarring. Quick explanations. Treats you like a afterthought.

a superb doctor, as judged by a fellow physician
in Long Beach, CA |
A friend recommended Dr. Quilici for my hernia repair. I was told he wrote a textbook on laparoscopic hernia repair and is an expert in the field. I had two previous hernia repairs by other surgeons and came from Long Beach to have my surgery. Dr. Quilici repaired my hernia as an outpatient. I barely had pain and was back at work in 4 days. Great surgeon and staff.
in Studio City, CA |
My experience has always been positive. Dr Quilici is a masterful surgeon and I credit him with saving my life. Yes, there can sometimes be a wait in his office but that is a non issue when you consider that you are going to have the best care available. There is no substitute for having a gifted you can trust.
North Hollywood, CA |
Dr. Quilici is a fantastic surgeon. He answered all my questions, made sure I understood what to expect, and did my surgery so expertly that I didn't even need an aspirin for pain. I had full movement in the affected arm/side within a few days of the surgery and scarring will be minimal. I highly recommend him. He has a very busy office (because he's so good!) but he is well worth the wait. Office staff are friendly and very helpful.
in Torrance |
Dr. Quilici had three ORs going at the time of my surgery. I don't even know if he did my surgery or Dr. Tovar, who I never met. When I asked Dr. Quilici if he did my surgery, he avoided my question and did not answer it (like all questions). When I advised Dr. Quilici of past surgical problems prior to my surgery, he brushed them off with an arrogant don't worry about it, I know what I'm doing. Post surgery, I asked him why my surgery took longer than the average... same answer!
in Burbank, CA |
He is the most Knowledgeable and caring physician that I've ever been to. He cares first and foremost about his patients. He goes to great lengths to explain every procedure and when he is with you, you have his undivided attention. My husband and I refer everyone to him as we know they will be in excellent hands.
