What People Say About Dr. Raffaele Borriello, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
In a surgeon, I care most about their surgical skills; Dr. Borrielo receives 5 stars as a surgeon. I also need to have my concerns, needs, and preferences heard; Dr. Borrielo listened. He additionally paid attention and incorporated the information I provided about what I believed was going on in my body; Again, 5 stars. Ease of appointment making and office personnel's ability to problem solve .... Well maybe if I had to make regular appointments the difficulty with doing so would affect my rating. In the context of being my surgeon who performed a bilateral, inguinal, hernia repair as a non-elective procedure and who I met with a total of 3 times, it is not on my radar to include appointment scheduling ease or office wait times as anything other than incidentals. I also think that personality traits should not be of primary importance for a surgeon, but it should be noted that Dr, Boriello is charming, has a good sense of humor, and is just totally likable.

While the waiting room can get busy you usually never wait long anyway. Dr. Borriello is a friendly/funny doctor who is great at what he does. I had multiple surgeries over the course of 6 months after a previous surgeon suggested I see Dr. Borriello. I hope to god I never have to see him again but if I do I know I am in good hands. He even called me after discharge and gave me his number in case of emergencies His staff is great and Ryan and Paulina are especially kind and compassionate.

On April 26th of this year, 2017, I had a hemorrhoidectomy performed by Dr. Borriello. He did an excellent job. I am 100 percent recovered. Dr. Borriello was spot on in predicting recovery time and what it would be like. His support staff was excellent, especially Paulina. I would definitely recommend friends and family to go see Dr. Borriello if they have the same problem I had.

I had two surgeries done with Dr. Borriello. He is an excellent surgeon and I healed really quickly. I was pain free the day after the surgery. I would highly recommend him.
