Dr. Scott A Gillin has the following 3 specialties
- Pediatric Anesthesiology
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

We met Dr. Gillin in the prep room the morning of our baby's open heart surgery. Dr. Gillin was very thorough in explaining his part in our son's operation.. Dr Gillin reviewed every drug he would use during the operation he also discussed the role of each drug and explained how well heart patients respond to them. Dr. Gillin was very courteous, maintained eye contact and made sure he answered every one of our questions prior to us handing over our baby. Dr.Gillin helped to ease our minds with his confidence. It made it easier to send our child off for this procedure.
We met under the most unfortunate circumstance, I had to have spinal fusion surgery from t5 to t12 to fix the curve in my spine due to scoliosis. This was the worst experience in my entire life. However, in respect to Dr. Gillin's work,his professionalism, bedside manner, personability, I could not have asked for a better Dr. I felt no pain while I was out, and I woke up, so I guess he did a perfect job. He calmed me down before I was put under and I really felt at ease. I knew he would take care of me, and that he truley cared about me. My father is one of the top anesthesiologists in San Diego and he recommended Dr. Gillin as the anesthesiologist for my surgery; if he felt comfortable having Dr. Gillin treat his son, you all should feel comfortable under his care.Thank you Scott, you are a true hero.
