August 24, 2016

I like that he took the time, to reassure me about my issues

August 23, 2016

I never feel rushed and he always takes the time to answer all my questions n concerns.

August 18, 2016

this was good. I like that he was forward and not trying to hide the bad. wish all doctors were like him.

August 12, 2016

I have told 5 people that I know to call Dr. Gililland and talk to him about their knee!!!

July 26, 2016

Dr. Gililland has been SUPER. He listened to all my concerns and answered all my questions. I would recommend him to anybody. He has changed my life.

July 26, 2016

Dr. Gililland and his team always provide exceptional care!

July 12, 2016

Dr. Gililland has been open and communicative through out my experience.

July 11, 2016

Very satisfied!!!

July 05, 2016

Dr. Gilliland was friendly, professional, and courteous. However, I think he made some assumptions about my attitude & concerns towards my knee replacement, my level of activity, etc. I've never been happy with this knee replacement (performed by a Seattle doctor) because of pain, and because my knee often locks up on me or gives way. That's my reality, despite assurances from Dr. Gilliland that the hardware in my leg was properly aligned, etc. I was reassured, however, that there was no infection and that Dr. Gilliland was going to administer a shot to my "hip" to help alleviate pain and prescribed physical therapy as part of my treatment plan. I never really anticipated a revision surgery, and I am very relieved to avoid such a drastic measure. During this appointment, we discussed my left knee only, as that was the recommendation by Laura Wood, even though I've been experiencing quite a lot of discomfort and unpredictability in my right knee. I'm told I have "mild osteoarthritis" in that knee, but it is painful nonetheless.

June 30, 2016

always a wonderful experience

June 24, 2016

Dr. Gililland and his staff are professional and personable. It has been a pleasure to have him for my knee surgeon.

April 26, 2016
