About Michael Siciliano, MD

Dr. Michael A. Siciliano was born in Brooklyn, New York and raised on Long Island. During his formative years, Dr. Siciliano actively engaged in weightlifting, football and martial arts. Due to injuries, Dr. Siciliano became a chiropractic patient and recovered well enough to have competed in powerlifting.

Dr. Siciliano earned a degree in English Literature from the State University of New York at Stony Brook and had aspirations of pursuing graduate studies in Law or English Literature. However, the success he experienced as a patient under chiropractic care eventually led Dr. Siciliano to pursue a degree in chiropractic sciences. Dr. Siciliano attended the Palmer College of Chiropractic where he graduated summa cum laude.

Dr. Siciliano returned to New York and operated a private chiropractic clinic in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn for several years. However, driven by a vision to expand his scope of practice, he enrolled in medical school at St. Matthew’s University School of Medicine. Upon graduation, Dr. Siciliano entered residency at UHS-Wilson Medical Center near Binghamton, New York and attained board certification through the American Board of Family Medicine. Dr. Siciliano initially accepted a position as an associate family physician in Upstate New York before relocating to Atlanta, Georgia. While there he pursued studies in both functional and regenerative medicine and was medical director for a multidisciplinary clinic focusing on non-surgical orthopedics and regenerative medicine.

Dr. Siciliano is certified in medical acupuncture through the Helm’s Medical Institute. He is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, Ohio Academy of Family Physicians, Institute for Functional Medicine, and American Osteopathic Association of Prolotherapy and Regenerative Medicine.

Apart from being a life-long student of the healing arts, Dr. Siciliano is known for his ultra-personalized approach to health care. He looks forward to assisting patients as a team player with the Center for Functional Medicine at Cleveland Clinic.In his spare time, Dr. Siciliano enjoys writing, reading, literature, philosophy, powerlifting, poetry, music and independent and foreign cinema.

This was my first interaction with the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine. I was a bit overwhelmed with this being a Video Call and getting everything to work and listening to everything the Provider was saying. He was super supportive in calling my cell when my audio failed me. That was very kind.

Reviewed on Jul 15, 2021

Dr Siliciano cursed repeatedly during the appointment. He was kind and showed concern for me, but not in a professional way. Also, the video visit started about 5 minutes late and he was unprepared for my appointment. He did not have my previous lab results and seemed to have no idea who I was or why I was being seen. Most of the visit was spent by him looking for paperwork. In the end, I had to find them in my file cabinet at home. Very frustrating for both of us (which is why he was cussing).

Dr. Siciliano said he wished he had more time to meet with me which made me feel very valued as a patient

Dr. Siciliano is a great doctor! He listens, he's caring, he comes from a place of compassion and he used his knowledge and experience in several different fields to help me. In fact, he helped in a way that was lacking in another hospital system and I am thinking of moving over to Cleveland Clinic--for all future treatments--as a result. I feel like I would be in much better hands. Dr. S. Took the time to explain the situation (and several solutions) and put my fears to rest. I have already recommended him to two of my friends who are having difficulties!

Reviewed on Jul 12, 2021

The video visit was technically very good but since the physician had not read any of the information that I submitted and the visit was only 30 minutes the visit wasn't as helpful as I have experienced when I had in-person visits.

Dr Siciliano was very thorough and gave me some insights into my health that no other doctor has ever done. The Functional medicine approach was very impressive. I had read Dr. Mark Hyman's books but didn't realize the significance for me.

Dr. Siciliano was excellent. He spent the time with me to have a full exam and consultation without rushing. I was able to express all of my concerns which he listened and used that information to inform his decisions about my treatment. He was very personable and kind. He is extremely knowledgeable, especially in the areas which are of greatest concern to me. That is exactly why I flew to Cleveland to see him.

This doctor is an absolute asset to CC. The screening line was so long to get in the hospital (I would also recommend telling patients to arrive an hour early for this) and he ended up staying with me to make up the time, constantly checking to see if his next patient had arrived. I actually felt very lucky I was assigned to him. I have so, so, many things going on and he made it clear what we are going to focus on first. I left not feeling overwhelmed. He had a very supportive and empathetic bedside manner and I felt very hopeful all of this can be figured out. I was impressed he worked on my case the night before and he didn't make me feel guilty I didn't finish everything until that morning. He helped me believe we could work with what we have and it's a process. It couldn't have gone better and I would absolutely refer anybody to Cleveland Clinic because of him.

Dr. Siciliano is great! I am having thyroid problems right now, and, sadly, a good likelihood of having thyroid cancer. I was made to feel at ease about the complimentary approach functional medicine could introduce along with standard medical treatment for my issues, including the possibility of enhanced nutritional excellence for cancer.
