This is a two level review, first Dr. Gillespie is a great doctor however his staff is less than professional. I saw Dr. Gillespie on April 7, I was to have a prescription called in that day. By 9:00 pm on April 7....no prescription called in. I called the office at 10:00 am on Thursday morning, spoke to the receptionist and she told me my prescription wasn’t called in but would by the end of day....April 8. Today is April 9, no prescription no answer at the doctors office and no call back. No matter how good your doctor is when your office and support staff are terrible, you technically are a reflection of that. I am aghast by the amount of unprofessionalism and I am disappointed that they aren’t professional enough to call back. Hey...you don’t see the doctor for fun, you see them because you are unwell. Don’t go to this practice....

I've been a patient of Dr. Gillespie for many years. He has always been friendly, concerned, and thorough. He has performed 2 different surgeries, with no issues. I wouldn't trust anyone else. My daughter recently started seeing him and loves him.

So glad I found Dr Gillespie. He was at Cornerstone before and has since left and started a MUCH better practice. He is very considerate, and takes his work seriously. Sure, he spends less time joking around and more time diagnosing the issues. I prefer that when I need to resolve issues based on my ability to breathe. I had an acute case of nasal blockage and after discussing my options, we set up a surgery and I am so happy with the results. Would return to Dr Gillespie for any issues concerning my ear, nose or throat issues.

The worst, most arrogant and unhelpful doctor I have ever seen. Will trivialize your concerns and treat you poorly. Don't waste your money to see this guy.

Long wait times, unfriendly staff, payment required up front for appointments and procedures which was substantially more than another office I visited for a 2nd opinion after appointment here, very little time spent for examination, long wait time and travel for procedure appointment, and arrogance of doctor was off the charts. Very poor bedside manor. Waste of my time and money. Completely disappointed. Will not be returning nor recommending to anyone else.

I would highly recommend Dr. Gillespie. He is highly skilled and very cognizant of his patients well being. I had recently had I. Office sinus surgery from him. He was professional and constantly encouraging me during the procedure. Thanks again! Ben

Ben in Charlotte NC – Oct 19, 2016
The staff was great as was their technology. However, I felt that Dr Gillespie dismissed my concerns, out of hand. He refused to even hold a discussion about my concerns stating "I'm the hearing expert. You are not". I told him he may be an expert in ears but he certainly didn't do well with people or parents. He yelled "I am the wrong one" whatever that means. I will never step foot in there again.
