What People Say About Dr. Michael Gilson, MD

I have had Dr. Gilson as my cardiologist for about 20 years. He is a brilliant physician and a fantastic person. With my history, I have come across a great number of cardiology health providers ( nurses, techs, excercise physiologists and internists etc.), and they all unanimously speak incredibly highly of him. There are a lot of board certified cardiologist but only a few that combine skills, personality and patient communication like Dr. Gilson

I first met Dr. Gilson a few weeks ago after a trip to the ER. The next morning he did a cardio version on me. He put me at ease with his kindness and compassion. When I left the hospital I was told That I would need a cardiologist,needless to say, I chose Dr Gilson. I had my first visit with him and he was so patient with me, answering all my questions, not at all rushing through the appointment. I left his office feeling very comfortable, knowing I had made the right choice in Dr Gilson.

About 15 years ago Dr Gilson was the on call doctor who saved my life when I had a heart attack after brought into the RI Hospital Emergency Room. Since then he has been my cardiologist and has been excellent to work with over the years. I found Dr Gilson to be open, honest and easy to discuss health care treatments to keep me alive to this day. I would without question recommend him to anyone seeking medical advice or treatment regarding cardiac care.
