Review of Dr. Gillian

-Elmira |

Had LINX surgery with Dr. Gillian two weeks ago. Very glad that I did. Traveled 300 miles to get to the right surgeon, and I'm very glad that I did. Support staff are excellent as well.

Kind, caring, extremely skilled and competent. Great surgical results. No more reflux! As a Registered Nurse, I know that all surgeons are not created equal. Dr Gillian is excellent.

Review of Dr. Gillian

- in Falls Church, VA |

Dr. Gillian is friendly, factual and genuinely wants his patients to experience a better quality of life. Surgery should never be entered into lightly. The extensive testing required to ensure that a surgical procedure will help with your GERD and other symptoms is not fun, but hearing the results gave me the peace of mind to know that I was making the right decision. Since my LINX procedure, my heartburn, GERD and near-constant nausea are gone! I feel better than I have in a LONG time!!!

Review of Dr. Gillian

- in Arlington, VA |

Dr. Gillian performed a myotomy on me in June, 2017. The date he arranged was earlier than I expected and I was the first surgery of his day. It was incredibly considerate of him to accommodate my needs in such a fashion! Upon completion of the surgery everything that Dr. Gillian stated occurred. I followed his suggested diet and had absolutely no trouble. I am back to a regular diet and have had absolutely no issues. Thank you, Dr. Gillian!

Highly recommend Dr. Gillian as a surgeon. He performed a Heller Myotomy on my father recently and throughout the process, he was very professional, caring, and reassuring .

Review of Dr. Gillian

- in Alexandria, VA |

I seen Dr. Gillian for an umbilical hernia repair. The doctor and staff were very helpful in scheduling the surgery. A few days after surgery I had terrible gas pains. I called the office and Carol told me several remedies to try and what other patients said worked for them. the things that worked for me were fennel tea several times a day, also took charco caps before eating. I would recommend Dr. Gillian and staff very highly !!!

Review of Dr. Gillian

-Chantilly, VA |

I was very happy with Dr. Gillian at my appointment and the test I had at Alexandria Hospital. However I would have liked him or someone on his staff to have called me with the results of the test, so that I have a little information before I see him again in a week or two. His staff are great and he gave us a lot of information at our first visit. The staff at the Hospital were very polite and informative too so I have no complaints other than the fact that I would have liked to have known the

Review of Dr. Gillian

- in Lorton, VA |

Dr. Gillian provided first rate treatment and care to me in removing a large cyst from the back of my head. From initial evaluation to follow up after surgery, he carefully explained everything and patiently answered my questions. I had virtually no pain after the surgery. His professional but easygoing manner was reassuring. In addition, all of the healthcare professionals and administrative staff at the Virginia Heartburn & Hernia Institute and Harbor Heights Surgery Center were top-notch!
