What Patients Are Saying

5 stars

If there is a textbook definition of what a “model doctor” should be like, it is Dr. Carrillo. He is as caring and personable as he is a world class expert in his field. He is SO patient in explaining and going over reports and his recommendations with you. He seems always eager to see you doing well and is always on top of prescriptions and lab orders. My mother (his patient) was sad when he transferred. His new hospital and patients are blessed to have him!
