Dr. Gilleon is down to earth and approachable. You won’t feel like a lab rat. She’ll also listen to you and respect your intelligence, answering questions when you have them. I am usually a difficult blood draw, but the phlebotomist gotme on the first try! It was a little crazy in the office today, but the staff was still in good spirits. Bonus! The waiting room is gorgeous.

Dr. Gilleon always hits the nail dead on. I went in yesterday and was seen promptly. We always have a friendly catch up, and then I get treated for my illness. I had a pretty severe cold and I'm already startingto improve. Her staff is great, as well. I have recommended her to several friends and family members

Dr. Cherie was very personable and knowledgeable even if it was a checkup on something she didn’t treat me for! The wait time could be better and the assistant at the front desk seemed to be chatting a lot before shetook my information, but I don’t want to judge as she may have had important stuff to talk about.

Dr Gilleon is the best physician I've ever worked with. I was in to see her in less than 30 minutes for what turned out to be strep and an ear infection and I had my prescriptions ordered and out thedoor in less than an hour. She is kind, compassionate, easy to talk to. She's incredible and I can't recommend her enough.

The staff were very nice and the doctor was friendly, personable, and sympathetic. She knew exactly how to help. Our meeting felt kind of rushed, but I felt like she really cared (which is hard to find in a doctor) andthat she wanted to help me, so I will go back for other concerns.

After searching long for a primary care doctor that cared about my well being; I am very happy I came across Dr. Gilleon and her staff. I waited about 5 minutes before going into the room and did wait a littlebit before she entered but once she introduced herself she was just as kind and sweet as everyone else said. She made me feel comfortable about what my concerns were and listened well. I will be following up with her after a month to insure everything is going smoothly.
