Specialties

Dr. Thomas J Difilippo has the following 2 specialties

  • Geriatric Medicine

    A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
    Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
    In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Personality Change

I first encountered Dr. DiFillipo in the late 1990's when he first came to the Hammond Clinic. He was friendly and seemed genuinely concerned about patients. I also recently stopped seeing him as he seemed to be simply "going through the motions" with patients. Perhaps he'll change back to his previous personality!

I need a change

After over 10 yrs, he has no idea who I am. I greeted him in a restaurant, & he walked right on past me. He doesn't look over your medical history until he comes in the examining room - he then quickly scans his computer. He'll ask his usual list of questions - did you have your flu shot? did you have the pneumonia vaccine? You have to tell him what tests you need - and then call him for your results. We were transferred to him when our dr left family practice. I decided after my appt today that I need a change to a more caring concerned physician.

Ignorant and clueless

He is not only clueless about your medical history (even if you have seen him for the past 5-6 years), he is very rude with his comments.
