Patient Satisfaction

Hear what our patients have to say about us.

Thankful for the Caring and Professional Treatment

Dr. Gilmore and his entire staff are extremely caring, personal, and always make you feel like you are their main priority when you are there. He follows up by a personal call after every procedure. Customer service is almost non existent in today's world and when you find it you want to promote the company, Doctor's office, or who ever is providing it. So to the office, staff and Dr. Gilmore thank you for caring and providing such great medical service and care.


A Happy Patient Plans to Spread the Word

My range of motion has "doubled" since treatment by Dr. Gilmore. I was not been able to raise my arm to my head in years. I am very pleased with Dr. Gilmore's care and plan to spread the word about Dr. Gilmore.


Very Impressed with Doctor & Staff

I was so impressed with Doctor and the time he spent with me and made me feel at ease. Everyone from the front desk staff and throughout the visit were kind and professional. I highly recommend.
