What People Say About Dr. Thomas Giancarlo, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

Dismissive with disdain for previous documentation, test results and diagnosis. Let’s whatever is irritating him creep into his time with you. Gave him the benefit of the doubt since I was desperately seeking an answer to suffering with life altering neuro problems due to bacterial infection missed by previous doctors. Put me through months of testing that left me in worse condition than I arrived with then told me I was ‘making it up’. I am amazed that he is still holding a functioning Med practice. Disheartening to say the least.

I have been going to him for 9 years. Since I been going many of my diagnosis have been found by him. Things was wrong and other doctors kept telling me something else. He truly gets to the bottom of your problem no matter how long.

This doctor LOVES to run several VERY expensive tests but by his own admission is only able to diagnose patient neurological conditions 40% of the time. Sorry, not good enough! ! Also VERY arrogant and does not seriously consider patient input in diagnosis.

I was in pain and waited three weeks for an apt with dr Giancarlo, who I thought was an experienced neurologist. When I arrived I was tol my apt was given to his nurse practitioner who is not a doctor and has no specialty in neurology whatsoever. The doctorj was nowhere to be found and I never even received a phone call . Other patients in the waiting area complained of the same issues ., and on more than one occasion. I paid the same amt as if I would have seen the dr. Crooked business

Dr Giancarlo and his staff are the best. They listen they address your concern and they truly care. They are passionate and they have always treated me and my family with respect. I was a patient of his for over 14 years and I truly miss the care they give. He has also helped my special needs son. You won't go wrong with the family of doctors he I recommend them and trust them all.

He is a textbook book of knowledge and does not look at a BlackBerry to tell me what is wrong with me.

Doctor was nice but I had to keep suggesting various tests because he didn't know what to do next. After 10 months and a multitude of tests, he still had no clue what to do next or a treatment plan. Don't waste you time. Policy is to have you see a PA instead of a real doctor and it is very difficult to actually talk with Dr. Giancarlo rather than a PA.

Terrible bed side manner. Condescending and has no empathy. I brought in my medical history, and he seemed annoyed that he had to look through it. Kept asking me what I thought about the test results, like I'm the doctor. Treated me like an idiot and made me cry. He ended the appointment by telling me that my life long illness will be a "nuisance". My daily life is not a nuisance. It's unbearable, which is why I was there. I will not see him ever again.

I was not pleased with Dr.Giancarlo! The wait was horrible over one hour! Dr. Seemed to too busy for me, He kept reprimanding his Staff! Went to see him for a follow up for a stroke, he said I would be fine, come back in 6 mos. Not a good choice for a Neurologist! Not going back.

I've always had a great experience working with the Dr Giancarlo and his staff. Wait time can usually be a little tricky, but never too horrible. He's thorough with explaining the procedures simply and concerned about the patients overall well-being. His bedside manner is dry-ish, but he's got a good heart. He's helped me a great deal in finding a fix for my occipital neuropathy and isn't just going to throw meds at a problem to get you out of the office.
