What People Say About Dr. David Gillespie, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

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
