Misleading web site. Does not live up to his claims of expertise and pain relief...., Apr 5, 2013
Dr Filler's website misleads people like me. I thought that his MRN and self proclaimed expertise and skill would help me with my chronic pain problems. So I visited Dr Filler at great expense to get an MRN and a diagnosis. Dr Filler recommended 3 very expensive injections in the front, side and back of my right hip. I did not have hip problems before the injections but immediately had problems and more pain then before. I did not have a bad case of piriformis syndrome before the injections......I do now after the injections. I have much more pain in the area of all 3 injections. The muscles and tendons where he gave the injections are chronically tight. I spoke with Dr Filler about this and he offered to do surgery. I can't help thinking that he knows that his very expensive injections will lead to his even more expensive surgery. Since the injections I have seen many bad reviews about Dr Filler. I think he is a very bad Doctor who takes advantage of people to make money. Beware of this man...his web site is like a spider's web...remember if it is too good to be true..it probably isn't....that was my experience with Dr Filler.
Dr.Cassileth is a Miracle Worker, she saved my body! ..., Mar 28, 2013
Some years ago I received breast augmentation from a doctor who I thought was competent and had my best interests in mind. Little did I know that years later my breast implants would completely fail, not only causing me to look awful physically but it was a risk to my health. I had a consultation with Dr. Cassileth and she knew right away that I had capsular contracture and needed corrective surgery right away. Dr Cassileth was extremely warm and understanding, not to mention highly knowledgable with what to do when a breast augmentation goes bad and how to fix it. Dr. Cassileth's staff is also amazing, they made me feel so comfortable and welcome. I am 100% thrilled with my results, the quality of her work is outstanding and I couldn't recommend her more highly!
Misdiagnosed my child Prescribed dangerous medication...., Feb 11, 2013
Wow. Character Limit. Sucks cause there is a lot to tell. I will make some points. 1) I had to guess my child's diagnostic and he would just agree with me. 2) Told me my child has pinworms when complaining about belly pain and constipation without even checking in a lab ( my child was later diagnosed at the ER with Encopresis ). 3) Prescribes Tylenol for everything from headaches to possibly cancer. 4) Call to make an appointment for lung check when my child had a severe flu but instead I was sent to the Pharmacy where a prescription will be sent. went to the Pharmacy and everything was Over the Counter.5)GI doctor requested a note in December from him. It is February and the GI never received it. 6) Called to get something for my son's cough. Transferred through three different receptionists ( one was chewing her food while on the phone with me).Got prescription for ASTHMA medication.Pharmacist asked me not to give my son the medication as it is dangerous.Encopresis+med=Renal Failure
Google "Complaints" on this MD before making an appointment for a procedure..., Feb 10, 2013
Before selecting any doctor, please do your due diligence and google complaints on whomever is giving you a consultation before you make an appointment or give them your money for any procedure,
even if they tell you that they invented the procedure you are looking to have done, and/or that they teach it internationally and that you need look no further for the best person to do the job. ALWAYS LOOK FURTHER WHEN SOMEONE TELLS YOU THIS.
I wish I had.
Unfortunately, I can't recommend her. Lacks privacy sensitivity!..., Feb 6, 2013
I saw this doctor once. Her office is very small which would be fine, except while I was there in the waiting room, I could hear everything she was saying during her phone conversation with the insurance company or someone like that. This included the patient's i.d. number, medical problems, lab report results, etc. I couldn't believe it! Doesn't this violate HIPPA laws?? She was using a phone in the front reception area but could prevent this by having a phone in back part of office. Toward the end of our appt., I told her I was concerned about her making calls from phone in front, and I could hear everything she was discussing about a patient. Instead of taking responsibility for the situation, she blamed it on her office, other patients, and then me. She said that that unfortunately she has a small office; that sometimes the reception door gets left open when patients walk in; and that most patients aren't listening for something like that. LOL, ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!! She may be a good doctor regarding a broken bones and such (I don't know), but she is clueless about protecting patient privacy! No thanks!
