Would definitely recommend *Dr. Nicole Gill.

Dr Gill had recommendations about improving, lessening the frequency, of my headaches. Ultimately she let me make the decision about how to proceed, which I really liked. She really works well with me as a patient.

5 out of 5 stars

Dr. Gill explained thoroughly the cycle of migraine which I appreciated. She took into account my hesitation to try pharmaceuticals and suggested other treatment options as well. She made me feel like I was worth it and that I did not deserve to have headache negatively affect my life so much.

Sufferers from headaches will appreciate the facility as soon as you enter. The contrast to brightly lit rooms and a local radio playing the hits. This facility was quiet understanding to the suffering we go through. The use of minimalistic lighting and very low I believe was white noise or waves plating was far not the greatest part of the visit. The staff was efficient, available, understanding, patient, and simply outstanding. Dr. Gill not only took the time to read the pamphlet of information they ask to fill out prior yo visit but she painlessly went through it to verify, clarify, and discuss how she would be able to guide me to relief. She made several options available and explained to me the research or any inquiry. I am very happy that I was able to get in to see someone willing and able to work with me through the exterior pain of constant headaches.
