Ratings for Dr. Thomas L. Gillespie
Dr. Gillespie performed a hernia repair for me in January ‘18, and I was extremely impressed with him and his staff. He carefully explained everything, answered all of my questions in detail, and even got to know me a little. The best surgical experience I have had....highly recommended!
I am so pleased with Dr. Gillespie's care. I was first referred to another surgeon. My daughter, who is a nurse at Banner Hospital, looked this physician up and was not pleased. She did some looking around and found Dr. Gillespie. He came very highly rated. She called up a nurse she knew in the operating room at Saint Joseph's and heard great things about him. Well they were right. His anesthesiologist used an abdominal wall numbing procedure that took most of my pain away. I am better now!!
Recently I went to see Dr. Gillespie with a long-standing surgical problem. It was one of those issues I just wanted to avoid. Dr. Gillespie made me feel comfortable. I had already done a tremendous amount of research before I met him but I was interested in what he was going to say. Interestingly, what he said was supported by my own independent research. He explained to me what he was going to do very clearly as well as described the other surgical options available. He seems to have a good handle on the latest research. I felt very comfortable making my decision and proceeded with surgery. I was discharged three days after I was hospitalized, I had early and frequent follow up in his office, and have had an outcome that exceeded my expectations. Thumbs up Dr. Gillespie.
I really want let Dr. Gillespie know how appreciative of all he has done. I had multiple surgeries on my abdomen and had many hernia repairs. Unfortunately I had a recurrence of my hernia. I was referred to another surgeon who thankfully referred me to Dr. Gillespie. First he performed a colonoscopy because it was over 10 years since I had my last one. He found a big precancerous polyp. He fixed my hernia by doing a muscle separation technique with mesh. I do sit-ups now! - JUST THANK YOU
Dr. Gillespie is relatively young but he reminds me of a good old fashion doctor. The kind of doctor I use to watch growing up on TV. I feel and believe he would fight any battle for me. He is tough as nails but at the same time you can feel his love. As you can see I care as much for him as he cares for me.
