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.

For the past 3 years i have not returned to the same doctor twice, mostly because they honestly didnt care enough, so i was a bit reluctant about her as well, bit she is wonderful, she sat and listened to mycomplains, asked questions of things that if she hadnt asked I would not have thought to tell. Very happy with her. Wonderful!

The first competent and highly empathetic doctor I've found to date. Dr. Gilleon has changed the course of my healthcare, for real! I want to both share her with everyone I know and selfishly keep her as a secret to myown care. She takes the time to really listen to your concerns and work with you for your own personalised treatment plan. As a transgender and GNC patient, it is always anxiety-inducing to seek a new health practitioner. Dr. Gilleon made me feel at home and safe in her care. I will come back to her time and time again (most likely after I relocate, too!) Thanks Dr. Gilleon!!!

The office itself is very new and sparse, but you can tell its something they are working on. Confusing when you first enter the building. Dr Gilleon was very professional, engaging, and kind. Her staff was cordial too. It was myfirst time going to her and I liked her dedication to figuring out health ailments and working within any scheduling limitations. I need to get a test done and she emailed me that night with a recommended location and detailed instructions for that facility. All I have to do is hand it to them. Great!

I haven’t seen Dr. Gilleon in two years since I moved out of state. After seeing her today and discussing the things I was nervous to talk about; everything felt like things were okay. She’s not judgmental and tries to findthe best option to treat you while not feeling pressured. Everyone should check her out in the Chicagoland!

Dr. Gilleon proved to be an excellent and understanding doctor. She quickly grasped my situation and history, and guided me in how to proceed with my healthcare needs. The only negative mark with my experience was the wait, and it wasn'tDr. Gilleon's fault at all. Nonetheless, waiting is never fun. But as far as my experience with Dr. Gilleon and the medical staff, I was very happy with my visit.

I have been a patient of DOCTOR Gilleon for over 6 years, and it has been the best medical care I have ever received. She takes the time to listen, empathize, and is truly interested in your medical care and concerns.She is thorough in evaluating and diagnosing, and never rushes to get through your appointment. She treats her patients with respect, and not as numbers. As a healthcare provider myself, I find this type of care rarely reported by my patients, and it is a breath of fresh air to find a provider like this!! Highly recommended to my family and friends, and any patients looking for a new PCP!

I could not have been luckier to have been referred to Dr. Gilleon at the time that I was. I have been suffering from mild shoulder blade pain for months, and woke up one day barely able to move my neck,w/pain radiating down my right arm. I went to my previous primary care, who recommended I take tylenol (after telling them I had failed ibuprofen and muscle relaxers), and scheduled me for physical therapy. The PT provided no insight on why I might be having pain. I chose to schedule a follow-up with Dr. Gilleon, instead of my pcp, and she immediately recognized something more significant was wrong. She gave me recommendations, and exercises, which actually provided relief. I felt like more of a concern than a patient w/my previous pcp, and was so relieved to have a provider that listened and understood. Thank you Dr. Gilleon!

Dr. Gilleon was my doctor before she left the office she was at a few years ago. She fell off the radar a bit and I was sad that once again, I would have to find a new doctor. I amso glad she's opened her own office and right in my neighborhood too. I think the staff are still trying to get their bearings as they just opened a month ago, but Dr. Gilleon welcomed me, listened to my concerns and problems (although there wasn't much to say), and helped me figure out next steps for follow ups or additional tests. What i love most is that she is funny and warm; i never feel that weird anxiety when talking to most doctors. 10/10 i would recommend her to anyone.
