What People Say About Dr. Zora Gill, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr Gill debrided a wound for my father and in our opinion caused a stoma that led to bowel literally leaking into the wound. He ignored what he was told by the operating physician and did what he wanted. It led to 6 months in the hospital to try and fix his issue. His ego has gotten the best of him. Please all, be careful..

I walk in w severe sepsis shock, all organs failed, 6 surgeons past me up, dr zora gill saved life with 5 major surgeries 3 had no medical survival. He removed 2/3rds intestines /colon, because of 2 blockages 25 resection that were dead. My iliostomy bags never stayed so he called a company to make some special bags for me. He was correct on w rehook up my guts, months ahead told me shots for bones. Yup severe osteoporosis is normal with Short Bowel syndrome. Thank you dr gil, mercy sw, mer

Dr. is very quick to anger, has no patience for sick people. He performed colon cancer surgery and I developed a blood clot in my leg. When I returned for first follow up check up after surgery and needed a wheelchair, due to pain in leg. He scolded me and wanted to know why i was not walking. I explained pain in leg and he said it's because I need to walk. Within one week of visit I got fever and infection, went to hospital where other dr found blood clot. It could have traveled to lung/heart
