in Chicago, IL
He's a genius from my point of view. He saved my wife's life when her lungs were filling up with fluid. He stopped it. Nice fellow, too. Very thorough. Good bedside manner. Can be light or serious. The real deal.

Dr. Gillespie took care of me with excellent care as if I was his own dad! He was very patient with me despite the fact that I'm in my 80s and don't speak English! I would highly recommend him to family and friends!
