Dr Dilisio was great. The only complaint would be I wish I could have seen him more post-op instead of PA-C, but I come from a medical office and I understand

Dr Dilisio is great. He's been very clear and honest about my rehab journey. His experience shows when explaining how or why things are progressing as they are.

Dr. Dilisio was great. He came in, he introduced himself right away to my son as Matt and not as Dr. So-and-so, which I thought was really nice. Answered all of our questions. Yeah, just did a great job, so I would definitely see him again.
