My surgery was very quick and easy. The staff made me feel very comfortable and I didn't feel nervous at all. I was also very happy with my follow up appointments. Dr. Gillihan never charged me for any of them. He even had a CT scan done on me to make sure my sinuses were completely cleaned up and he never charged for it! Dr. Gillihan is always open to answer any questions and takes time to consult with you.

I have rated Dr. Gillihan with an excellent in all categories which really says it all. I have been a life long allergy and sinus sufferer. Most recently my signs were head ache, tooth pain, and nasal airway congestion for 5 months. I received prompt scheduling, thorough exam, same day sinus scan, and treatment plan. 8 weeks post op—I CAN BREATHE through my nose — and the pain is gone. The bottom line with any healthcare provider is was the problem resolved? My answer is a resounding - Yes

My son and husband have been seeing Dr. Gilligan for almost 3 years now. He is genuine and fair. He has amazing bedside manners while also being familiar but professional. He has always been exceptionally great to us and we would recommend him to anyone needing an ENT. We travel from almost 4 hours away just to see him and get care from him. That should speak volumes to anyone reading this review. His office staff is AMAZING and makes insurance business easy and transparent. We recommend!!!!!!!!
