Going to a Proctologist is not something I was very fond of doing. My anxiety level was tremendous and the entire staff made me feel right at home! Even the d?cor is calming! Dr. Gillis himself was tremendous! He totally understands that people coming to see him don't really want to be there and he puts you right at ease! Thank you, To the entire STAFF for making an awkward situation much more comfortable!
