As in any new Doctor I check them out on line. Dr. Gills turned out to be a very excellent surgeon. I am so glad I picked St. Luke’s to do my cataracts. The staff was so helpful. When you walk in to St. Luke’s they have a check in station but, it won’t take long before someone to be there to greet and help you check in. It feels like a family run company and you are part of the family. I had two phone calls from nurses between surgeries to check on me and to see if I had any questions. You only get two eyes your whole life so you what the best. And I had the Very Best! Thank you Dr. Gills & Staff

In my 50 or so years in healthcare I have NEVER seen a better organized, more efficient, more professional medical facility! Not 1 of your staff EVER has a poor attitude, sour face, impatient look or anything that the typical medical office is so full of. If only the Federal govt. could copy you for an example for medicare, there would be no medical crisis!!!! OUTSTANDING!!!!!!! I only wish all my other physician offices could do so well.

Doctor skill excellent. Got lost in their process - kept waiting for over an hour with no explanation as to delay- or concern by staff. Told that was the process, but had other eye done days before and no waiting. Again, Doctor excellent. Some Staff - need some empathy and a way to track where patients are and then let them know why there is a delay. Some staff were excellent.
