I went into the office with an expectation of diagnosis and plan for treatment. I waited for more than 30 minutes. Dr. Gilster walked in looked at my legs for five minutes then explained briefly that I needed to wear special socks. He seemed rushed and disinterested. THEN I received notice from my insurance company that they had been billed $400 for treatment... What treatment? What a complete scam. Don't waste your time! It looks like this is a in house review and not shared with the public.

Dr. Gilster did a great job with my procedure. 3 months out from surgery date and I'm back to walking 6 miles a day but pain free!

Dr. Gilster and staff were very thorough, professional and attentive to my needs and concerns throughout the entire process. Dr Gilster spent all the time I needed to have everything explained to me in laymens terms. Most importantly, after my procedure, my symptoms have improved greatly. Will not hesitate to come back if other vein issues arise.

My case was advanced! I've just seen some of my before photos and I didn't recognize the legs I long suffered with. I'm glad he took the challenge! (I'm very happy.)

When Dr. Gilster told me he could help with my varicose veins, I actually teared up! I was so grateful that there was a solution. He was very professional and kind. He seemed to care for my individual situation and I felt like he was confident in what he was doing. His staff is very personable and kind. They knew who I was and helped me to feel relaxed. The appointments were not too long and the procedures were explained well. I am so grateful I found Dr. Gilster. I would highly recommend him!

I had a varicose vein taken care of that had bothered me for years. Dr Gilster explained the procedure in detail and made me as comfortable as possible. It's now gone! Very happy with the results. Highly recommend Dr Gilster to anyone looking to have vein issues dealt with. He and his staff are wonderful!!

From my first visit with Dr Gilster, he clearly outlined the procedure and timeline. Over the course of three visits, he significantly reduced the pain in my legs (and as a side benefit reduced my back pain). The staff is knowledgeable and personable and provides excellent support. I have two friends who have had back issues who also have varicose veins and I have encouraged them both to visit Dr Gilster.
