Ratings for Dr. John F. Gilligan
Dr. Gilligan is the worst doctor I've ever had. He never asked me about my injury, he never examined me and he started off my appointment asking me if I wanted Morphine or Methadone without knowing if I had a history. He made a diagnoses of my condition without examining me which cost me dearly with my disability. I asked him to prescribe me meds to stop smoking and he refused and said it was bad for business. I didn't take him seriously until another patient told me he did the same to him.
He is a pill pusher and hasn't touched me in ten years. Throwing up in front of him and peeing blood to tell me nothing was wrong yet I ended up in surgery the next week. Rude and spends no time does not listen makes preconceived ideas gathered from the info the nurse takes.
Nevermind that he was late, I will wait for a good doctor. Upon entering the room, he asked why I was there. I told what I thought was originially wrong, but that the condition had changed and could not be that. He trivialized my conditioned and belittled me. He wrote me presciption and left. He said he had no other explanation for what I had and that if this didn't work to come back and he could try something else. Needless to say my condition has not changed and I am seeing a different doctor. My history with this doctor and that he has poor patient report and spends inadaquate time determining what is wrong. I usually see a different doctor at that practice, but tried him this last visit as the other doctors are always changing.
I had an abnormal bloodtest. So I went to Dr. Gilligan's office for another bloodtest to see if it was a fluke. His office emailed the bloodtest results to me. Again, they were abnormal. So I called the office to speak to him. His receptionist was not eager to help me and told me that the doctor was 'with patients." She further told me that the doctor should have made a recommendation if the result was abnormal. She looked up the results herself and verified that there was no recommendation. So she told me she would get back to me. She called 8 hours later and left a message to repeat the test in 30 days. I had only been to this office once before for a back injury. I will not be going back to this office.
I DO NOT like John Gilligan. He was very rude to me on a recent visit. First of all, he walks in to the room, I smile and say "hello"..he doesnt even look at me and says "what are you here for"..then proceeds to be very rude, and treat me like I was lower than him. I'm in pain, paying out of my paycheck for these visits... HE IS NOT GOD and should not think he is. Proceeded to say he would tak me to the referrel nurse for a spinal specialist. I get my coat and purse on, turn around, and he's gone....left me in the hall.. Luckily a nice lady came out of her office, noticing him stranding me, and showed me kindly where to go...she felt weird and pissed that he did that as well. LOVE the staff there, but Gilligan really makes me feel cold, and like a number.
