      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!
      Highly recommended!!! Very professional and caring man. If you are looking for help look no further. You won't regret seeing Dr. Gillis!!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
