Dr. Victor J Cillis has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

We were new to the Cape and didn't know any doctors in the area. I googled Pediatricians in Hyannis, and found Dr. Cillis. My son was very ill, and was seen immediately. The nurse in the office is very very nice, and the receptionist didn't want to let us see the doctor. She told me to fill out a health history and then I would be called the following week if my son was accepted as a patient. Well the nurse saw how ill my son was and that he needed to be seen immediately. She took my son right in and my son met Dr. Cillis. He was so nice and thorough with my son, and made him feel very comfortable, which in turn made me very comfortable. He is an excellent doctor. Recently, my son was seen again for a different issue. Dr. Cillis came in to the examination room, looked at me quickly, and then turned away and devoted all of the remaining conversation and his attention to my son. He was treating him as an equal in terms of listening to him. I didn't care that he ignored me, because he was doing his job and was treating my son, not me. I spoke to him briefly at the end of the appointment and then we left. He is fabulous and gives the children the time they deserve. I highly recommend Dr. Cillis.
I personally have been seeing Dr. Cillis since I was about 12, so about 9 years, my sister seen him for about 9 years, and now my daughter sees him. He is the best doctor I have had as a pediatrician and he really takes time to figure out what the problem is and to help you out. He won't just push you out the door with the standard heres some antibiotics go away. He takes his time, he comes up with a solution best for you. We have mass health and have NEVER EVER had a problem with it, so the person who wrote a bad review back in 2010 probably isn't telling the whole story to her situation. I am dreading the fact that I have to find another doctor for myself now, I'm afraid I won't find another doctor as great as him. I highly recommend him to everyone with kids!
Even though at times he is rather curt with parents, his interaction with my 2 babies has been wonderful, which is why I go back to him. They both laugh and smile at him and are very comfortable. He has answered all my questions and taken care of any issues that my lil ones have had. He obviously cares so much about lil ones and takes the time to address any concerns with them and explains everything in full detail that needs to be done.
