About Robert Gillespie, MD

My uncle was a pediatric cardiologist and my neighbor was a pediatrician. Their influence played a large role in my decision to become a physician. They both loved medicine and exposed me to that positive experience. Patients want a doctor who is knowledgeable but willing to listen to them. My job is to simply provide the patient with the information they need to make an informed decision. Building trust, which does not necessarily take an extended period of time, is the key to helping a patient make the correct informed decision. Trust starts with empathy and understanding. Outside of work, I enjoy playing golf, vigorous exercise, traveling and spending time with my family — not necessarily in that order!
