Joseph Stephen Chirillo, Jr., MD

About the Practice

Our mission and common goal in the practice of Dr. Joe Chirillo is to provide individualized and optimal care for each and every one of our patients. When our patients leave the office after an appointment, we want them to understand that our entire staff truly cares about them. Our aim is to provide medical care for their bodies, emotional care for their minds, and spiritual care for their souls. This is much more than simply a job for all of us. We consider it a calling and take that responsibility very seriously. Our philosophy is to treat patients the way we would like to be treated. We do our best to accomplish this through a variety of methods. A few examples of these follow:

After hours availability:

In the event you require medical care or advice on evenings, weekends, or holidays, you can reach Dr. Chirillo by dialing the main office number. You will be given the opportunity to leave a message on the voice mail. Upon your hanging up, Dr. Chirillo will be alerted via his cell phone, allowing him to listen to your message. He will return your call in a timely fashion. We ask that you reserve this service for urgent matters that cannot wait for the resumption of normal office hours.

Specialty referrals:

Because Dr. Chirillo cannot know it all or do it all, he believes that proper specialty referral is of critical importance. Should Dr. Chirillo deem it necessary to refer you to a specialist, he will only refer you to a physician that he would personally see, himself, or allow his family to see. If you feel you need to see a specialist and Dr. Chirillo has not yet recommended it, he will be more than happy to make the referral at your request.

Calling back of test results:

When laboratory testing or imaging is performed and not in conjunction with an upcoming appointment, we will always call the results to you. We do not subscribe to the philosophy that “no news is good news”. What no news actually means is that we have not yet received those results. Should you fail to hear from our office within a reasonable amount of time after having testing done, we strongly encourage you to call our office and alert us so that we can track down your results.

Your doctor and only your doctor:

Dr. Chirillo feels the vast majority of his patients would prefer to see their own doctor at each and every office visit. That being said, Dr. Chirillo will never employ a nurse practitioner or a physician’s assistant to see his patients. The education and training that a physician receives far surpasses that of these physician extenders. This policy will help us to provide the very best care possible.

Communication:

We make the very best effort to be excellent communicators. This begins by first listening to what our patients have to say, whether at their appointment or during a phone request. If you have any concerns that you do not feel are being properly addressed, please let us know. And, of course, if we have done something you feel is “above and beyond”, please feel free to share this with us so that we may ensure this policy continues.
