I have been looking for this Dr. for over 2 years! I feel super confident in the treatment course he has outlined for me and can't be more thankful for FINALLY finding a compassionate, likable, caring doctor who doesn't make me feel like I wasted his time!! I can't begin to express my relief in seeing this Doctor!!

I just cannot say enough about Dr. Gilthorpe. I recommend him wholeheartedly. He saw me within three days of requesting an appointment, immediately gave me a pain relieving injection and had me booked into the hospital for a back procedure in a week. What an amazing experience. I wasted a month, suffering in agony, with other doctors.

When I met Dr. Gilthorpe, for the first time in a really, really long time, I felt like a doctor actually cared about me.  He took his time, listened to everything I had to say, and, even during COVID, touched me to assess my problems. He is kind and patient, I would totally recommend him to all people who need this kind of help.
