Dr. John Gillis's Ratings
I am sure Dr Gillis is a wonderful Doctor however, his staff on the other hand are not in my opinion. Sharon apparently takes all the calls and if you tell her you were speaking to someone else when you cancelled she gets very defensive and states she is the only one who makes the appointments. She did call me to make an appointment and I called to cancel because we were moving. I apparently called Halifax pain management in error because I checked online for the pain clinic and wasn't even sure who the Dr was but I called and explained my situation. I spoke to a lady and she told me no problem that I would be on the waiting list and they would call me once there was an appointment, I stated that was fine. I got a call from my physician stating I missed my appointment with Dr. Gillis, when I called the number my Dr gave me I spoke to Sharon and she was very rude stating I did not cancel because I would have spoke to her. I am on medication for pain, it is hard to keep things straight, so I just said okay and then we made another appointment. I could not make my appointment yesterday because I came down with the flu and I called and cancelled and advised them I could call back when I feel better to rebook. I did that this morning and it all started again with the accusations of missing my appointment I explained to her what happened she did not give two hoots and that I missed all my appointments so far and that if she books again I will not be able to get another appointment. I told them I am going to try to get in at Halifax because of the way I was spoken to and that is Dr Gillis wishes to know why, to tell him due to his staffs treatment. Very upset and disappointed that his staff does not have more compassion when it comes to someone who is trying to seek treatment while medicated and confuses easily.
My wife has seen dr Gillis since a car accident 2011. I think he is intelligent, excellent bed side manner. He takes the time to listen to her and never makes her feel like a nuisance ever. His staff is great. Best dr ever
Dr.Gilli's is one of the best doctors I have ever gone to in my life. He's caring,understanding,gental and kind. He's truly amazing. He gives me ten needles in my back almost every week. Although I'm in an extreme amount of pain. He always makes sure to ask me if I'm OK and handles me with such care. He's always dressed for success is always polite, thorough and extremely smart. I am so glad I have him as my pain specialist.He gives me relief when I thought there was none.I tell you if you if you need a great Doctor he's it.
Without his help , I would still be in the pain that I am when I cannot reach him from the artificial that stand in my way of medical treatment. These artificial is no joke and I have a very hard time to find ways to overcome them . Most of the time I spend my time in pain looking for ways to occupy my mind , trying not to think of the pain that keeps me in tears . Without a doubt I am in his dept and will remain a loyal client of his as long as he will have me
I have been a patient of Dr. gillis for chronic Back pain for 6 years and he has given me my life back. He is not a drug pusher but a great Doctor. I dont know how I have seen a couple of negative comments about him on other sites but I believe they are just wanting something they dony need. His staf are great and so is he. I have nothing bad to say about his manner of practicing. I have recommended him to a couple of people who have gotten referals from their G.P., and they all feel the same way as me. He is non judgemental and knows all about pain and how people suffer. he's rated a 5 of 5 in books all the way. Mike LeFort
I think Dr. Gillis is wonderful! I had my first appointment with him and after 14 years of back and leg pain and not wanting surgery as I am only 42 he is the first doctor willing to work with me in hopes to get as much relief as possible! Living in Ontario, Europe and now Nova Scotia and more specialists and surgeons than I care to count! Today was the first day ever I have walked out of a doctors office with hope! Thanks Dr. Gillis!
I have been seeing Dr Gillis for 3 months. I feel compelled to write this. First of all, those of you who find his beside manor lacking, go spend 6 weeks in a hospital & give your time to a sick patient! Dr Gillis is NOT YOUR DRUG DEALER, if you have a legitimate problem he is your Doctor, & a very good Doctor. I have never had to wait for him, have always been treated with the utmost respect & care. He's BUSY, I've heard him on the radio Channel 95.7 news speaking from BALISE, no matter if he was on a personal vacation or not he still kept his obligation. I've seen him in the ER, & in his office, in all fairness he isn't there to stroke your ego, he's there to fix your problems. Those of you who make the comment that he comes across as "ARROGANT"~ speaking with confidence & being direct does not mean ARROGANCE! Look @ yourself and ask if you have a pain or drug problem. I think he's the best Dr I know. Cynthia L. Arkens
