My experience with Dr. Pit Gills and St. Luke's was exceptional just as I anticipated. I took my Grandmother to see his Father Dr. James Gills in 1977, and St. Luke's has been a family tradition ever since. The senior Dr. James Gills operated on my Mother, great Aunt and Uncle, and several other relatives from Georgia. When my time came this year (I am 60), I knew I wanted Dr. Pit Gills as my surgeon, and lucky for me my sister lives 15 minutes away. Although I live in Atlanta surrounded by excellent eye doctors, none can compare to St. Luke's. The equipment is state of the art. With the skilled hands and experience of Dr. Pit Gills, I have 20/20 vision in both eyes. Dr. Gills identified an eye condition I have that no other eye doctor had ever mentioned, and he took the necessary precaution to address it during surgery. Dr. Gills patiently answered all my questions, and I came with a list! Forever grateful.

My experience at St. Luke’s and with Dr. Gills was outstanding. This was my first time having eye surgery so I was extremely nervous. The staff at St. Luke’s were wonderful. My anxieties were addressed and Dr. Gills was very patient and reassuring. Everything went very well. My surgery was in the morning and by 1:00 my husband and I were having lunch at a nearby restaurant. I had no problems with my eye and will return there when my other eye needs it’s cataract removed.

My experience with Dr Gills was great. He took care of my cataracts in both eyes and everything went along wonderfully. I really appreciate it that they pray for me before surgery. May God bless you all.
