in La Follette, TN |
I am not a patient of Dr. Gillespie but my spouse has been. I went with her on a couple visits and was impressed with his note taking and his taking on conflicting information my spouse had told him vs information I gave him. He is one of the most thorough and caring physicians I have seen.
