in Opelousas, La. |
He has great listening skills adds humor to bring about a smile . A Merry heart does good like medicine . Would trust my life in his hands and his excellent nurse Amelia .

I have been a patient of Dr Gillespie since March 2016 and he is an awesome doctor. He is straight up but has alot of compassion. He tells you different way to get your pain under control. Never made me feel like I was just another patient, always takes his time with me. I would definitely recommend him.
in Phoenix, AZ |
Was okay at first, but now makes me feel like I'm drug seeking. In fairness, he hasn't outright told me that, but when I give him my complaints, they don't always make sense, and they are definitely not consistent with the previous appointment, but I'm being as honest as I can. Wait time the last 3 times I've gone have been in excess of 2 hours, which is ridiculous.
