in Sycamore, Il |
Dr. Pillai is excellent. No other doctor I know is as intelligent or caring as is Dr. Pillai. He is able to explain diagnoses, procedures, and medicines in a way that is easily understandable. Dr. Pillai also fits people into his schedule--and this is not easy because he is constantly busy. I cannot recommend this doctor highly enough as a gastroenterologist.

Exceptional doctor in all ways. Have seen him for more 6 years. So glad I have him for my doctor.
in Malta, IL |
Dr. Pillai is extremely knowledgeable about his field, but also knows all about my specific situation when he walks in the room. He doesn't have to look at a chart; he's already studied it. However, I've never waited long to see him. During the office visits he takes time to carefully explain everything and answer all my questions. I never feel rushed. Dr. Pillai makes me feel like I'm an individual, not a number, and that he truly wants the best for me. I wish all doctors were like Dr. Pillai.
