Excellent care with excellent results. I've never been to a medical facility that took such great care of me and showed such personal concern. I recommend Dr. Gills to everyone who is in need of his type medical care.

He told me to throw away my glasses as I would be able to see perfectly after surgery. I asked him to clarify something and he said talk to my assistant and left the room. That is when I should have gotten up and walked out. Several weeks after surgery I could not see as well as I did before. I saw the younger Dr. Gills who stated Out of 1,000 patients who have surgery, 950 come out seeing perfectly; you are one of the other 50. I tell everyone you should not go to them.
