About Dr. Cherie Gilleon

While practicing under other corporate structures, Dr. Gilleon became increasingly aware of the lack of adequate medical care available everyone regardless of their race, gender identity, or socioeconomic status. In response, Dr. Gilleon set out to start her own medical practice with the mission of advancing healthcare equality through activism and direct patient care. Gilleon Health opened for business in Andersonville in August of 2018. A second location was added in Logan Square the following spring. Gilleon Health can help you with chronic illness, acute medical conditions, mental health and gender identity issues. The office is judgement-free and welcomes all humans (and some canines). Dr. Gilleon is a board certified Family Physician. She attended medical school at Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific and went on to complete her residency at Amita Saint Joseph Hospital in Chicago.

I happened to go see Dr. Gilleon for the first time on a super busy Friday, but she was worth the wait. I had to get an uncomfortable issue checked out, and she handled it all with good humor, patience, and professionalism. I felt instantly comfortable with her and appreciated her casual expertise.

Dr. Gilleon, and her staff were very nice and very helpful. I am switching providers right now and I am glad that I have chosen Dr. Gilleon to be my new provider. She is very attentive and patient, and answered all my questions, without making me feel rushed. Especially in explaining all possible options for treatment. I would like to also say that the nurse practitioner was also great as well as the phlebotomist (especially as I am a huge chicken with needles), and right down to the registration staff and her very yummy cookies :-). Thank you all for making my visit very comfortable and great. Look forward to seeing all of you again on my next visit!

Wow I am blown away by Dr. Gilleon and her staff. After many years of avoiding the doctor, I felt so comfortable and cared for— like really cared for, with Dr Gilleon and her team. It was the first time I ever had a doctor who cared and related, working with me to find a solution. There wasn’t really a wait time at all, especially considering the care I was given. Excited to call Dr Gilleon my primary care doctor now!

Dr. Gilleon is the absolute best. I always feel heard and cared about, and amazingly I feel comfortable with her entire staff. Because of my history I have difficulty feeling comfortable with doctors, but Dr. Gilleon is easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. Her practice is one of a kind and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Always a great visit! Was greeted by the staff at the front, and given access to the patrol portal with detailed instructions on how to login! I was seen within 5-10 minutes of sitting down and kindly went through initial checkup process with the nurse. After a great conversation with her, I was seen by Dr. Gilleon herself, who was all smiles, polite, and informative. I highly recommend this practice as I have been a happy patient each time I have walked out of the door!

I have never had a better experience with a doctor than I did with Dr. Gilleon. She was immediately warm, friendly, and helpful. She addressed every concern I had in a reassuring manner and readily offered referrals to other medical professionals for specific procedures I expressed interest in. Additionally, booking an appointment was amazing! I was able to book an appointment for /the next day,/ something I never thought was possible at all.

Dr. Gilleon continues to be an absolute treat to visit. It's odd for me to have a doctor that I actually am excited to get to visit. She listens to me, makes recommendations, and believes me when I tell her my needs. Also, the phlebotomist (person who draws blood) that I worked with was just phenomenal! I was almost in tears we were laughing so hard. On top of that, she knows what she is doing... I didn't even feel the needle. I hope Dr. Gilleon keeps staffing that place with true gems like her. I'm also going to keep my ratings as all 5 stars, but I am having a bit of a battle trying to get one of my prescriptions filled. I had 3 prescriptions I needed to be filled and only 2 of them were sent. No biggie at all. However, when I called to get it resolved, it went to voicemail 5 times, I left 2 voicemails, and got ahold of someone 1 time. The person I talked to on the phone said that they would talk to Dr. Gilleon and be sure to get the prescription in by the end of the day. Unfortunately, the prescription wasn't sent in by the end of the day, and I can't actually get ahold of someone to answer the phone. Anyone reading this review... Don't let that last paragraph scare you away from here. The practice is top notch and Dr. Gilleon is a saint. I just wanted to make sure they knew of the issue I was having to make sure they can build some processes to fix it.

Dr Gilleon is down-to-earth, respectful and empathetic. She spoke with me human-to-human without losing a sense of professionalism. She’s always been willing to explain her thought process, discuss additional concerns, and work to understand the broader context of my life to make sure the care I’m receiving makes sense for me personally. I think it’s the kind of medical care we all deserve and the kind we should demand from practitioners.
