I told him what was going on and he knew exactly how to correct the problem and I felt much better and I was able to breathe a whole better than when I came in, but he suggest the specialprescription rinse to help with some of the problem. I pick up that prescription and I'm using it every day. Thanks to Dr.Dilliard for his patience and concerns of his patients. Martha T. 6/5/2018

Dr. Dillard made me feel there is hope to resolving my health issue as soon as he talked to me. It was like he knew me for a long time. He was very accommodating, down-to-earth and conducted the consultation with suchregard for my health problems. It is very rare to meet a doctor who resonates such warmth and genuine concern and care to his patient. He was recommended by my rheumatologist, who is not just a doctor to me but a good friend. Today I understood why my rheumatologist sent me to Dr. Dillard. Quite unbelievable that we still have doctors with a heart like Dr. Dillard.

Dr. Dillard seems to be a great doctor, but his staff seem to be a little chaotic, particularly the medical assistants. He is CONSTANTLY being interrupted by the medical assistants, he goes in and out of the patients room (did withme) dealing with "urgent" issues (he's done this numerous times) and you have to catch him up on what you were telling him before. All of the doctors that I see other than Dr. Dillard will spend one-on-one time with me with no interruptions from staff and listen to my issues. He is constantly being interrupted and is in and out of the room which is a concern. It makes me feel that I'm not getting the proper medical attention that I need.

As always Dr. Dillard was informed, friendly and in tune to my symptoms. He is up to date and forward looking - even suggesting treatment/referrals for conditions not related to his practice, but are related to my health. He is a top doc for sure.

Dr. Dillard was informative and listened to me in an effort to address my problem. I feel that patients just want someone to listen to their issues and be given time to be heard by their doctor. This is good. Thenew medical assistants have a great bedside manner, but struggle with the English language to an extent which can be concerning when dealing with peoples health. I also wonder why there are so many medical assistants in specialty doctors offices in Gwinnett Co and not really any nurses.

Overall a good experience. The wait time was long after I got back to the room. Not very comfortable when you are hooked up to everything and have to wait that long. But the main concern was the front desk didnot know how to process my Care Credit Card and I had to place the charge on my credit card and then call back the next when I was feeling better to get it all straightened out. It is always embarrassing when they tell you your card did not go through and it should have!

OMGosh- I actually asked for the office's business card so I could leave a a note saying how much I thoroughly enjoyed my visit with Dr. Dillard and his staff today. From the front office to the nurse who helped meto Dr. Dillard, I've never felt so at ease and cared for. I went in being so nervous about the potential severity of the issues, they put me at ease. Thanks again!
