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

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!

Review of Dr. Gillian
in Chesapeake, VA |
Life changing is a good way to start this review. Dr. Gillian implanted a LINX device in me to correct severe reflux. I had been suffering from this condition for over 20 years. The surgery has completely corrected my problems! It is remarkable to feel normal again and to be able to live a normal life. Dr. Gillian is kind, thoughtful and makes you feel like you are his only patient. His office is clean and comfortable. His staff is amazing, kind and friendly. Fantastic experience all around!

Review of Dr. Gillian
in Springfield, VA |
Dr. Gillian, and his associates, honestly changed my life. I had suffered with severe GIRD for many years and had an major, undiscovered (three inch) hiatal hernia. His laparoscopic surgery was extensive, but it has literally: (a) made me feel decades younger and healthier; (b) enabeled me to eat anything (no more carefully assessing the "least heartburn" options for every meal); and (c) increased my energy-level and my zest-for-life to what I enjoyed in my mid-forties.
