Very professional and knowledgeable. I appreciate is overall assessment and advice. He is not overly eager to perform some procedure regardless of whether you need it or not. Trustworthy.

Review of Dr. Gillian

Dr. Gillian is a excellent Doctor. He is very caring, friendly and a good listener. I have been suffering from severe Acid Reflux disease for 15 years and I feel much much better after my linx surgery and hiatal hernia repair 5 month ago. Recovery was fantastic no pain medication was needed after second day and I was able to go to work after a week. His stuff were friendly and caring. Definitely recommend Dr. Gillian. Great Doctor!

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 !!!

As you have noticed there is more to a surgical practice than scalpels and suture. No matter the amount of preparation and research that may go into a patients decision to proceed with a surgery/surg... more
