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.
