The worst doctor ever. He treated me for 9 months, telling me there was nothing wrong. Couldn’t take the pain anymore & went to the Cleveland Clinic. After 2 hours of being admitted, it was discovered that I had a large grapefruit size cancerous tumor in my pelvis. This man should have his license taken away. DO NOT GO TO HIM!

Dr. Gilman is a down to earth, caring and empathetic individual. I have lived with horrific pain caused from two herniated cervical disks and was referred to Dr. Gilman. I went to my first visit and I knew I could trust him with my surgery, and I was 100% correct. I had surgery on September 14th, and even though I am experiencing some pain from the surgery itself, I no longer have any nerve pain at all and I am doing great! I would recommend Dr. Gilman and his staff to anyone!! Thanks Doc!!

Dr. Gilman performed brain surgery on my dad, back surgery on my brother, and a carpal tunnel release on both of my hands. My family loves him! He is a down to earth doctor that truly cares about his patients.

When I broke my back after decades of decline, Dr. Gilman treated me with respect and straight-talk. He answered every question I ever had, spoke frankly, performed my procedure with skill, and motivated me to begin my healing process with determination. He also worked with me for lifestyle changes to cope with the symptoms that led to the actual diagnosis of my condition.
