Was able to get an appt. the same day I called on one occasion & was having problems, could go to work afterwards. I found Dr. Gilliland to be very patient & accomodating. His tx was effective, & I was given hand outs to aid in explaining my condition. Staff is very nice & try to arrange appt. as soon as possible. If waiting room is cold for you, they provide blankets.

Been seeing Dr. Gilliland for years. Always thorough. I do not like the new staff. I came before lunch and after he saw me everyone was gone. The one rude nurse that was there told me that I would have to wait until someone came back to take my copayment. I almost walked out but I do not leave without paying. The good Dr needs to fire his inept nurses.
