Quantity of Patients VS Quality of Care

He's not very friendly/personable, but that's not really important when I'm looking for a doctor. What really bothered me about Ilario, however, is that he rushed me through the appointment, and I felt like he didn't take the time needed to fully vet my issue and help with plotting a recovery plan. I was hoping to talk about my MRI report, symptoms/pain points, and how to fix the problem, but he just kept saying my knee 'looked fine' after what felt like a minimal in-person examination of the injured area and just a few questions (which he also didn't let me quite finish answering). It's unsettling when his ...'it's fine' statement doesn't match up with the multi page MRI Diagnostic report that came with my 'films,' but I admit much of what is in the report is above my full comprehension level (and why I had questions). We all know that Google can be a dangerous thing when you look up medical phrases, which is why I was hoping MY DOCTOR would take the time to help me understand. No such luck. I waited quite a while for my appointment time, and to only be seen by him for a few minutes in what felt like an extremely insufficient examination makes me feel like he is missing something in the diagnosis and treatment, which let's be honest - doesn't impact his quality of life; just mine. I recommend you avoid him and try a different doctor.

Patients are not his priority

Dr. Ilario took most of his appt time to talk about how terrible and painful surgery will be as opposed to examining me and reviewing my MRI results. Not much of a two way conversation with him. He is quick to refer you to his colleague for a 'second opinion,' when you question his treatment decisions. Start smart and don't go to him. Or if you do, get your second opinion from another source; not his colleague/friend.

Truly a blessing

This was my second total knee replacement( different knee) performed by Dr.Stephen Ilario in seven years. Both replacements were a total success. I found Dr. IIario to be one of the best if not the best in the state of Maryland compared to conversations with family, friends and abroad. His professionalism and concerns for me was truly a blessing. One thing that pleased me was that the more I ask concerning my procedure the more that he was willing to explain.
