Thank you for taking such good care of my mother!

Our family was vacationing on Hilton Head Island when a piece of steak became lodged in my father-in-laws esophagus. This doctor came to the emergency room and was able to get the meat out and get us on our way back to our hotel. Thanks Doc!

Super Dr and great diagnostician. Very popular so may take a couple weeks to see.

While I feel bad about writing this review I feel that I must. I went into the office for a consult for a colonoscopy and Dr. Gilbreath talked to me for about 10 minutes. While he was writing notes I noticed his hands shaking a little bit. He wrote out a prescription for me and that is when I noticed his hands really shaking. Called the office to cancel the colonoscopy and they told me that yes his hands shook while writing but didn't affect colonoscopy. Really? No thank you, Dr.

Our GP consulted Dr. Gilbreath and they ordered an MRI with follow up by the gastroenterologist to address high liver enzymes and escalating symptoms. We called his office several times for an appointment and were told repeatedly that the nurse was doing triage and would fit him in. After 8 days, we were told the doctor would not see him because he had too many things wrong and too many medications and this was decided back on day 2. Another gastro. helped immediately and a tumor was removed.

Horrible ! No communication whatsoever!!!
Okatie, SC |
The Doctor is very personable but can NEVER get a prescription filled on time. Staff is rude and not concerned about patients.
