      She is the BEST!! Takes her time and does not treat you like your part of an assembly line! Discusses your case ask questions she will answer! I would not trust any other doctor with my daughter's health!??
      in Newberry MI |
      She is very easy to talk to, listens very well, an is very knowledgeable. Her staff is very friendly an always accommodating. When she is with you, you do not feel rushed she takes her time with each and everyone of her patients, but the most of all is she LISTENS. an does not make you feel like your stupid or crazy.
      in Merrill, MI |
      Dr. Gilmer was very knowledgeable and took her time with me. She explained everything to me and my family along with surgery and if i postponed the surgery what could happen.

      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.

      I am a board certified pediatric and adult neurosurgeon. While my expertise is neurosurgery, my specialty areas are Chiari Malformation, in both children and adults and peripheral nerve surgery, like occipital nerve repair or block, and hydrocephalus.

      Other specialty areas are neuro-oncology and craniofacial reconstruction.  A complete video profile is available on my web page: MHSI.us/doctors/holly-s-gilmer

      I'm pleased work with patients -- both children and adults -- from around the country who are seeking relief from all forms of Chari Malformation.  Many of the parents have shared they found me via Chiari support groups and blogs, you can also some of their journeys with a visit to our website: MHSI.us
