My sincere sympathy to the Gillman family. I worked with Dr. Gillman at Four Counties Health Service in Newbury for 30 or more years. He was the most kind physician to all his patients and a great man to work with. I spent many hours with him as he visited his patients late in the evening after doing his surgeries and also assisted him in the Outpatient department. He never tired of doing what he loved. He will be missed

I wanted to say to the family, I will miss seeing Dr Gillman and serving him as I've done these past 30 yrs. He was always so kind, with a wonderful smile. His love for his work was evident and he was well respected by those who worked with him at F.C.H.S. May God's peace and comfort be with you all at this time.
