23/05/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Gillott delivered all 5 of my kids. I lived well over a hundred miles away for my last two but stayed with my mother in Desert Hot Springs for the final days so he could deliver the babies.

31/10/12 2 2 1 2 While Dr. Gillott was friendly and efficient, he displayed a petty, temperamental and unprofessional attitude, which interfered with his service. H refused to see me for my post-op and would not acknowledge or discuss injuries to my body that I received during surgery. Numerous complaints were filed. Very devastating experience.

04/09/10 5 5 5 5 Best OB ever! I'm under Dr Gillott's care for my twin pregnancy, and couldn't be happier. He and his staff provide excellent and thorough patient care, he answers questions and never rushes me out of appointments. He is by far the best OB I've ever had.

04/01/10 5 5 5 5 Dr Gillott was TRULY the best!! He has such a great, funny, and caring personality. His attention to detail was key, as I was having twins. I transferred to him while I was 8 months pregnant and even as a new patient he gave me such superior treatment, even making it possible for me to have my boys scheduled on a holiday! I had a c-section and my husband to this day thanks Dr. Gillott for the excellent job he did on my incision. We are no longer in Sacramento but would HIGHLY recommend him if you are, he made my experience feel so at ease. Thank you Dr Gillott!

11/06/08 5 4 5 5 I love Dr. Gillott. He is one of the few doctors who clearly loves his jobs, and remembers patients details rather than relying entirely on a chart. He is always cheerful, honest, and overall great. He has made my first pregnancy as smooth of a ride as I could ask, and I definitely recommend him to anyone in the area!

11/03/08 5 5 5 5 Hands down the absolute best doctor I have EVER met!!! After a nightmare year of other doctors telling me that there was nothing wrong, he took the time to explain all of my options and went through all the steps with me. As I neared my surgery date, my 11 year old son became very anxious. Dr. Gillot met and talked with him and explained everything to him! But to have a doctor that actually says, "You have nothing to worry about, I'll take good care of you." There is no price for something that precious!

04/09/07 3 4 5 5 This man is the best OB/GYN in the world. He delivered two of my babies and was so supportive and helpful through both pregnancies. He always took as much time as needed to answer every question I had and reassure me if I needed it every step of the way. And even delivering a breech, he was calm and patient and encouraging.  Respond

29/08/07 1 2 4 4 He is very kind and was quite helpful even though he didn't know much about the specific problem I had. However, it takes WEEKS to get in to UC Davis even for fairly urgent stuff. In my opinion waiting so long actually made my problem much worse and harder to treat. Dr. Gillott is great but I highly recommend you avoid UC Davis physicians because of the office staff (not helpful, rude, and not knowledgeable about basic issues) and how long it takes to get in for appointments.  Respond

24/02/07 5 5 5 Very nice, funny, and genuinely concerned about his patients. I went in to see him about a cramping problem and instead of simply prescribing pain medication like many other doctors would do, he took the effort to find the root of the problem. He ordered blood tests and an ultrasound; found what was causing my pain and performed the surgical procedure to cure it. I have had no problems since.  Respond
