Dr. Gillespie performed my reconstruction after a bilateral mastectomy and I cannot speak highly enough of him. After being diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 32, Dr. Gillespie truly made my journey and recovery so much easier! He has incredible bedside manner and is such a down-to earth, genuine physician that listens and gives his patients his time and attention. He is always quick to respond no matter what time it is and he is a very gifted surgeon!! I always felt like he genuinely cared and had my best interest in mind and I am so happy with the results of my reconstruction! I highly recommend Dr. Gillespie, especially for breast cancer patients looking to get reconstruction!

Dr. Gillespie is the best. He listens carefully to his patients and covers options in detail. His work is so good because he is very artistic and that is very much a plus in a Plastic Surgeon. I would not go to anyone else.
