      Dr Ciricillo is my HERO! I've never met a doctor who has been more compassionate to a patients feelings, and anxieties. After having brain surgery 5 years ago, Dr Ciricillo still gives me the highest level of care. I had chosen Dr Ciricillo after speaking with 2 other non-Sutter doctors who made the level of anxiety extremely high to deal with. Dr Ciricllo took the time to explain my condition to me in a manner I could understand. Love him!!!

      Our daughter has neurofibromatosis, tumors on the face and head with a very large tumor covering her right eye. Dr. Ciricillo performed several surgeries on our daughter. We had taken her to several doctors who said this was an "heroic surgery" and they couldn't/wouldn't do it. We are so grateful to Dr. Ciricillo, he was excellent. A real gift.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
