25/02/14 2 5 3 3 The office space is nice and clean! Wait time is minimum. Staff seem uneducated but are friendly. Lab staff poor technique and always playing on their cell phones or other personal matters. I have never had a good experience with lab. Dr. Gilstrap is the most caring physician. He is honest and works diligently in caring for each patient.

09/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Gilstrap spends time with his patients, and ensures they understand their medical diagnoses and medications. He also listens. I've been to doctors who don't care to understand their patients, and are only looking for the bottom line... money. Dr Gilstrap has never made me feel this way. I highly recommend him and his practice! Jarred has always taken the time to get me prepared for the visit, and Barbara and Cyndi are wonderful out front!

07/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Gilstrap and his staff is the best! I have lived in several different states and I have never been in such a "put together" office as this one. Dr. Gilstrap and his nurses Jarred and April took the best of care with me. They are so friendly and helpful. When I checked out to leave Barbara and Cyndi answered all my questions concerning the patient portal and my next appointment. By the time I left they actually had me looking forward to my next visit! Great great great office!!!

03/11/09 1 4 5 5 Dr. Gilstrap is really good and he takes the time to listen. He seems to really care. Has helped me more than other doc's I have been to. His staff... another story! I am looking for another doctor. His front office staff is cold and impersonal. His nurse is either really nice or irritated at your presence, mostly irritated. Can not get a message to him for an answer, any answer. Always told I need to schedule an appointment (even though I just saw him) for a simple yes or no question. Do not want to pay a co-pay for a "yes" or "no". Really like him but there has got to be a better practice!
