Luigi Borrillo does not have an adequate amount of comments to generate the sentiment analysis.
I have no idea who this person is but his name is Dr. Jesus and that gets a five star review.
I was uninsured. And I had damaged my eye. I did not know what was wrong with it. Dr. Borrillo saved my vision. And he hardly charged me. This man goes beyond being a doctor. To me he is a Saint!
I've been a patient of this practice since 2008 and have had multiple detachments of various severities. I've needed laser surgery and retinal cryopexy more times than I can remember now. I've seen Borrillo in Daily City, San Mateo and Stanford. This is just an excellent doctor in an excellent practice, my vision has been saved multiple times by highly professional and courteous medical & support staff - never had any complications. He has always taken the time to explain my condition and medical options and his recommendations - always with a very reassuring, patient and calming manner. He's also been very cheerful and upbeat when I've had to drag him in at a weekend for emergency surgery. Complete professional.
He is a professional Doctor he is very friendly he takes his time to explain everything very simple for his patient to understand in one word he is an awesome eye doctor
It is interesting to note how the previous poster went into excruciating detail in documenting how quirky Dr. Borillo was, but ended it by basically affirming that he provided valuable informtion to be followed up on, which would be of great benefit to her to maintain her vision.Most patients are critical about a doctors bedside manner as being either too sterile or even having too big of an ego. This is not the case with Dr. Borillo, who's personality lightens the mood and helps diffuse the anxiety associated with vision loss. Dr. Borillo is a breath of fresh air and I always look forward to seeing him with me father.I have been taking my father to Dr. Borillo on and off for about 8 months now due to a complex retinal detachment. Throught this difficult process Dr. Borillo has always made himself availbale to deal with any issues involved and has done what is needed to preserve my fathers vision.How much vision my father regains due to his eye problem remains to be seen(no pun intended), but at least I feel we had a great doctor working for us.
My general practitioner recommended Dr. Borrillo after I admitted that I hadn't returned to see a retinal specialists after a bad experience with one following a vitreous detachment eight years ago. I was relieved to read the one very positive review of him on Yelp before I made the appointment. By the time I got to his office I was ready for a completely different experience than the first rather bizarre and discomforting one I had had. Almost right away I began to suspect that he might even be worse than the first retinal specialist I had seen, and even in almost exactly the same ways. His greeting to me included loud exhortations to ask, ask questions, "You're my boss, I work for you," he kept repeating. When I meet people with so much affect, I tend to become more and more quiet, and so the questions I had come with began slipping away. When I said I had read his bio on line and that I hoped we could speak very directly as the bio said he liked to do (and yet how to do that with so much obfuscating affect?), he assured me that he was very "head on" and quite mean, you know the kind of person who likes to stick needles in people's eyeballs . . . Oh I get it, humor! Finally I asked him if he had drunk a lot of coffee that day. He assured me in a sing-songy voice that he had had two shots in the morning, but that was his regular routine. I told him he seemed very drugged (hyper) and he assured me he was always like that. He commenced singing in a cartoony high voice as he reviewed some files on the computer screen. "Any more questions for me?" he interjected. "Go ahead, ask! Ask!" And again he repeated with seemingly great pleasure the information about who was boss and who worked for whom. It was an exhausting and yes, bizarre, experience that I only wish someone had accompanied me in because even now, a week later, I begin to doubt how extreme his behavior seemed at the time. Maybe I was just the joke target patient that day? I've had mostly very good doctors and great relationships with many of them. An essential part of any healing relationship includes rapport and trust. Hard for me to imagine that with Dr. Borrillo, so I'll just end with the gratitude I feel for the two valuable things he told me that day--that there is a physician in Los Angeles who does a laser treatment for floaters (YAG Laser Vitreolysis) and that I have the beginning of cataracts, neither of which I knew before.
