      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.

      So arrogant! Thinks he knows everything! He doesn’t. Had to go for 2nd opinion. Doesn’t explain anything and is in a hurry!

      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

      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.
