Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Gilhool was a nice balance of exhibiting professionalism and knowledge but being down to earth, warm and friendly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gilhool and the OSS facility for it's fine practices and extremely clean /sanitized environment.

In an appointment, I found that he treats patients with smug condesencion and lack of respect. He talks over the patient and attempts to use presence to dominate the conversation. The wait time was horrendous. Terrible Doctor.
