Would NOT recommend Dr. Gillespie.. I was a new patient-after waiting for one hour to see him ( I was the only patient in the waiting room) Once he arrived into the exam room- I explained my medical issues to him- he seemed disinterested- he never asked me any questions nor did he suggest what may be the cause of my chronic pain.. He said he would order a test for me, I presume at the Hospital. After my five minute appointment with him- I Proceeded to check out with an office girl - who was to make this Appointment -she was unable to make this appointment for me because Dr. Gillespie had not written any notes in my chart in the computer.. SO a week has passed since my appointment with him and there has been NO FOLLOW-UP from his office.. I have no appointment for the test that Dr. G. was going to order. So know I will begin my search for a new Vascular Dr. - one that actually has an interest in helping his patients.

Never!!! I can't even give him a rating. Brought my mom to him seceral times for her vascular appointments. Never unwrapped or looked at her feet. Luckily Dr. Christianson at the wound center was concerned enough to give her antibiotics and notify dr. Gillespie that he needed to look at her feet. Only to go there for him to say that he could do nothing. Mom ended up in the hospital septic because of her feet. Clearly Not a caring doctor. Mom was very ill then later on died.

Doctor Gillespie did not answer my questions, instead he told me that I have to come back in three months until he could continue to look at my veins. He then opened the door and told me the exit was to the right from the hallway and closed the door. No bedside manner whatsoever. I could've been told to wear a compression sock for three months before scheduling an appointment, instead they took my co-pay and basically told me to come back after wearing the sock. I seriously could've googled this
