Patient Comments (4)
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.

Waited over an hour Listened to his nurses talk openly about patients (making fun of most) He came off to me as arrogant Gave me absolutely no answers to my medical questions. Told me to use flonase to help with reoccuring ear infections (I told him I have been using flonase everyday for the past year). I asked about tubes and he told me that only children or pilots/flight attendants can receive tubes. Time and money wasted.
