My visit to Dr Gilwit was a blessing from god. I was totally blind in my left eye. I can see and drive with no problems. I think I was probably his worst case, but he handle it very well.

Two Stars

What I liked about my first visit, was that he had state of the art equipment and this was what I was looking for. The Dr. and his staff were very courteous and I enjoyed my visits and the type of care tha I expected. What I didn't like was the price I was being charged for routine office visits and the exorbit fee for compressing a sty on my eye.
