Specialties

Dr. James R Gillespie has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Poor followup

I had a colonoscopy which he did not complete. After 1 week I still do not know why he did not complete nor do I have info about my procedure. I will not see this DR. again and do not recommend him to anyone. I have called his office several time and asked what he did and why he stopped. No one knows and it seems the DR. does not either. Still waiting!

Best of the Best

Always puts you first. Spends time getting to know all about you. Sticks with you till he finds the problem. Never assumes or guesses what your problem is. Most host doctor I've ever met. Will always trust him. Would suggest him to everyone.
