Patient Comments (1)
in Bessemer, AL |
I had my tonsils and adenoids removed on March 22, 2016. I've always had problems with breathing and sleeping since my childhood. My visit with Dr. Gilliand was very comforting. All of my questions were answered and my fears went away. After surgery, I was in pain; but that was expected. After a week, the pain ceased and I was able to eat a little more. It's been 4 weeks today since my surgery and I'm fully recovered. Thank you Dr. Gilliand and nurses for helping me sleep and breathe well again.
