For nearly a year I've had ongoing sinus issues, sensation of something stuck in my troat, difficulty breathing, dizziness, blurred vision, radiating rippling pinched nerve senation and feeling of being hit on the side of my head with a bat every 10 to 15 seconds. Prior to seeing Dr. Gillespie, I had been to the ER, primary doctor, urgent care and dentist for help. I spent most of 2014 on steroids and 2000 MG of ammox daily. Without the benefit of relief I went into the ENT. I personally expected to hear nothing was wrong bc that's all I had heard previously. Within minutes he diagnosed me with Eagle Syndrome. After scans, many tests and other doctors we finally came to conclusion that extraction was needed. This past Monday each side was removed, as well as both tonsils. I had read how horrible the procedure is for people my age 33 can be extremely difficult to recover. I'm on day 5 of recovery and feel absolutely incredible! The best I've felt in FOREVER!! I felt better even before leaving the hospital. My ears don't hurt and sounds are no longer painful, and my eyes feel strong! I'm so grateful for Dr. Gillespie. There are no amount of words that can express how thankful I really am! He's a true blessing!

I've been going to Dr. Chock Tsering for the past seven years, beginning when he was practicing in Chapel Hill, NC. He initially treated me for "severe" tension headaches, which I'd had for over 20 years, and then for a whiplash, following an automobile accident in 2001. He has helped me tremendously and I highly recommend him without reservation. He is very sensative to your health issues and extremely thorough in his examinations and plan of treatment. I am always amazed at the wealth of medical knowledge which he posesses, and, he "always" has the perfect treatment for my condition. Now I drive from Graham, NC to Monroe, NC to see Dr. Tsering for my appointments, which takes approximately 1 1/4 hours each way. Believe me, I wouldn't have it any other way; I trust Dr. Tsering that much. If you've been to a neurologist and have left the office with the feeling that it was a "waste of time", I suggest that you give Dr. Tsering a call and schedule an appointment for a "second" opinion. I guarantee, you'll be glad you did!! Bette C. Graham, NC
