Dr. Gill diagnosed my daughter with a bent tailbone after a severe fall on her tailbone. We opted for surgery after x-rays showed the tailbone was bent at an 90 degree angle. Before surgery, my daughter fell again, causing increased pain. We requested an additional e-xray after the trauma to see if tailbone was broken and Dr. Gill dismissed any need. He was overconfident that it wasn't necessary. After surgery, Dr. Gill informed us that her tailbone had indeed broken off in to pieces. He removed several pieces, but overlooked a piece of bone and it was left in the base of her spine. Over the next few months , my daughter experienced increasingly intense pain and pressure. We chose to go to another Spine surgeon at Baylor that we were familiar with and trusted. We did not return to Dr. Gill because of his arrogant attitude. This Spine Surgeon Dr. showed us tests that revealed a deep infected puss pocket at the end of her spine and she needed additional surgery to clean out area. Surgery was performed and it was discovered that Dr. Gill missed a piece of broken tailbone during his surgery procedure. My daughter needed to have this second surgery to clean out the area, remove the piece of bone and needed to spend 5 days in the hospital on strong antibiotics to treat the staff infection that developed b/c of the remaining bone piece. We believe that if an additional X-ray had been done as we requested, this could have been prevented. Dr. Gill did not listen to us or to our concerns. I would strongly recommend researching alternative spine surgeons because of our experience.
Dr. Gill is helping me with a painful ruptured disk. He is knowledgeable and thorough. He clearly explained my condition and the treatment options. His follow-up is excellent. Most importantly, he is passionate about helping his patients. He has a wonderful reputation among many Dallas physicians. I simply cannot imagine a better choice.
We would highly recommend Dr. Gilland his staff and his staff to anyone that has back problems. He is very professional and he know his work!
was not interested in what I had to say. discounted as a patient. Look elsewhere for a good doctor.
If not for Dr. Gill I would be a cripple today. His pioneering micro surgical technique had me out of a wheel and walking the day of my operation. One in a million man ad doctor. Can't say enough good things about him, except do whatever he tells you.
Never examined me.Doesn't listen.Can't be bothered with followup if more than one question.Has assistant sew up incision and handle followup questions.Charges the same for assistant as for surgeon.Does not instill trust.Why is he at Southwestern?
I suffered a back injury in 1985 and no one could diagnose my problem. The company I worked had everyone believing I was making a false Workers Compensation claim. The only doctor that took the time to diagnose my problem and offer help was Dr. Kevin Gill. I tried all forms of conservative treatment. Nothing worked. My Physical Therapist was Patti Smith. She was the best PT and couldn't make the pain go away. Dr. Gill operated on me on Sept 14, 1987. Fusion at L-5 S-1. I listened to Dr. Gill and did everything he told me to do after surgery. I am proud to say my fusion is still in place and I never needed to return to see Dr. Gill again. I am so grateful for his willingness to help me in a time of crisis in my life. I moved to San Diego 2 years later and started my life over again. No words can ever express my gratitude to Dr. Kevin Gill. I send him a Christmas card each year to let him know I'm doing just fine and thank him again. God bless Dr. Kevin Gill. My angel and hero. If you have back problems.......go see Dr. Kevin Gill. You won't be sorry.
Never took my paperwork. Glanced at the mri and was ready to schedule for surgery. Other complications of disorder, simply dismissed without acknowledgment. He didn't ask me ANY questions or examine me; was in examining room 5-7 minutes. Left feeling like a number/object, rather that patient.
I had a very complicated cervical disk operation performed by Dr. Gill. He is the consummate professional, and made me feel hope that my agonizing pain could be healed. I am now entirely pain free with no limitation of my functioning. I would recommend Dr. Gill to anyone.
This doctor's surgery on my mother ruined her life. She now has chronic pain and nerve damage.Don't let it happen to you.
Dr. Kevin Gill - has performed 4 back surgeries on me, they have not all worked, but not from a lack of trying. I think he is the greatest - most personable, and up-front doctor in the Ortho field. His office was very professional and you never have to wait, very prompt and a great staff.
