Dr. Gill demonstrated passion for his specialty early on. He graduated from medical school at the age of 24. At 28, he won the prestigious James Barrett Brown Award for Plastic Surgery Research, a select award for the best plastic surgery related paper, awarded by the American Association of Plastic Surgeons. During his training, he was nominated “resident of the year” four years in a row by his peers and mentors. He has continued this dedication and drive to patient care here in The Woodlands where he continues to receive peer and patient nominated awards: the H Texas award (multiple years), the “Patient Choice Award” and the “Compassionate Care Award” presented by Vitals.com.
Working for Dr. Gill requires a desire to keep learning. He recognizes the importance of a well-informed staff and dedicates extensive hours to continuing education for both himself and his team. “We do this because we recognize how it translates to our patients, helping them receive the most accurate and up-to-date information,” says Dr. Gill. Over 1700 patient questions have been answered by Dr. Gill on Realself.com, one of the leading websites in online education for plastic surgery. He also developed a patient education series video blog, enabling patients and their families to learn about procedures in detail before their first office visit, allowing them to participate knowledgeably during their consultation. He has lent his expertise on reconstructive breast surgery on the morning show, Great Day Houston.
He credits his outstanding practice success to his “amazing office staff and wonderful wife,” who understands what it takes to give the highest level of patient care and commitment to the patients of Montgomery County. His love of his home is reflected in his actions in the community: apart from donating the proceeds from his skin care products to local charities, Dr. Gill is a frequent sponsor of charity events such as the recent “In the Pink of Health” Breast Cancer Luncheon at the Woodlands Waterway, where over 1200 attendees raised money for breast cancer research, technology and providing underprivileged women in Montgomery County with free mammograms.
As a husband to a busy dermatologist in the Woodlands and father to two daughters, Dr. Gill understands the day-to-day challenges of being a mother and a working professional, two qualities prevalent in patients seeking his expertise in breast reductions or enhancements. Convenient, flexible appointments help accommodate patients with BUSY schedules, while an impeccable bedside manner eases any pre-surgery anxiety. Many of his patients have consulted multiple plastic surgeons, only to return to him because of his unique ability to transform an apprehensive situation into something educational and pleasant- a personal journey.
“Elective Cosmetic Surgery can come with a lot of concern. I want my patients to know that I’m here- they’re safe. We are a local family. I live a mile from my office; I’m available at any hour or day to my patients. I choose not to divide my time between multiple locations so that my patients and staff can feel like they have a home.” In addition, Dr Gill has his office in the Woodlands Memorial Hermann Hospital Complex because of his deep commitment to patient safety. I want patients to know that immediate medical attention is always available to them and to have the comfort of an adjacent hospital makes a world of difference to their comfort and piece of mind.
The high ratio of return patients is as attributed to the peaceful, home-like atmosphere of Dr. Gill’s office and warm staff as it is to the doctor himself. “We always hear how informative and helpful our staff are from the first phone call. We have a simple philosophy: provide concierge level care in a quiet, calm atmosphere, with a staff trained in both service and discretion.”
