Favorite Things

Dr. Gillespie likes to take advantage of the warm Florida weather participating in outdoor activities like golf, tennis and fishing. He and his wife also enjoy traveling to visit their four grown children and two grandchildren.

Dr. Gillespie and his staff were very helpful and informative. I had debated over having the lasik procedure for quite some time, I finally made my appointment and went to see Dr. Gillespie. The office was very friendly and were able to answer all of my questions. Dr. Gillespie was very nice and thoroughly went over lasik and my other options. He was considerate of the many questions that I had and answered all of them with care and consideration. I would highly recommend Dr Gillespie and his office to all of my family and friends!!!!!!
