in Fenton, MI |
Love her! Wise and very good at what she does! Treats me respectfully every time!
I had surgery with Gilmer back in 2008. In 2012, after a second surgery with a different doctor for Arnold Chiari Malformation Type 1, I received the surgical report which stated before and after my first surgery, the MRIS show that during the surgery my C2 vertebrae had been broken and healed incorrectly and created a bone spur. Gilmer was responsible, she NEVER told me and instead left me to find this out on my own. I've been diagnosed with a secondary condition because of this bone spur.

Doctor Gilmer is an amazing doctor. She saved my life. Her bedside manner is top notch. I have never had a more personable and caring doctor. I wish more would take after her.
Thank you for this wonderful comment regarding the care you received from Dr. Gilmer!
in Auburn Hills, MI |
Poor bedside manner, doesn't listen to your issues. Assumes she knows everything
in Fraser, MI |
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.
