“Dr. Gil has always been accessible and goes above and beyond to resolve issues and your sense is he cares about your overall well being.”-Anonymous
My son was in desperate need of someone who could help him. He was diagnosed with “ADHD” by a medical professional who had spent less than five minutes with him! My intuition told me this was incorrect. By the time I found Dr. Gil, I didn’t even realize we were in need of a naturopathic doctor! What struck me about Dr. Gil during each visit was that he actually took the time to listen to what my son and I had to say. He really cares! Dr. Gil has the ability to extract and put together valuable pieces of a puzzle, which in turn form the picture of the underlying cause of symptoms in the body. Because of the treatment my son has received from Dr. Gil, he is healing, and I have my son back! I have recommended Dr. Gil to both family and friends, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone at all who is searching for answers concerning their health! -Becky C.
“I feel better than I have in a long time thanks to the plan Dr. Gil prescribed for my individual needs. Honest communication with your doctor is key, and Dr. Gil is always receptive, which makes things easy.” –RG
We found Dr. Gil through the recommendation of several friends who were patients. When we came to Dr. Gil I felt like were trying our last natural option before trying traditional medications to help manage and relieve my daughter’s mental health, rage, and attachment issues. I had worked so hard researching and seeking out options to help her self regulate without medication. As her mom and as an educator, I was uncomfortable with the possible long terms effects of mood altering medications on a developing brain. But despite having a supportive, skilled team of providers we were not seeing any forward progress or positive change. So, by the time we sought out Dr. Gil I was exhausted and short on patience. I was going to give him one or two month’s tops; we have now been seeing him for 7 months. Even though his office is a bit of a drive for us and his office space is small. We have stayed because he is caring and engaged during patient appointments, answering and asking questions. He is knowledgeable and experienced in his field. He has been able to piece together and give us answers to some symptoms that other doctors shrugged off as anomalies. He found these symptoms significant. It has taken longer than I had hoped (truly my expected timeline was neither fair or realistic) but I feel like we are finally making some forward progress using supplements and LENS. He is a valuable addition to our treatment team and gladly communicates with out other providers, providing continuity of care. I love his supplement service. He e-mails a prescription and then I fill it online with a discount. I have price shopped and can’t find a better price. To top off all this, he has a great office staff, which my boys are happy to hang out with while Dr. Gil and I address my daughter’s needs. My three year old looks forward to our appointments the most, loves Tara, and brings in special toys to share with her. — J.S.

Dr. Gil has such a wealth of knowledge. I can’t give him enough praise; I came in due to horrible migraines (daily). I never considered going to a naturopath but he came so highly recommended I figured I had nothing to lose. Well I’m migraine free for about 4 weeks now! Pretty amazing. Thank you Dr. Gil!” -IO
“Timely appointments. Knowledgeable expert in his field. Easy prescription service. We are glad to have him as part of our healthcare team.” –JS
“Dr. Gil is wise, insightful and experienced. No one in Portland provides the specialized combination of therapies that he does. If you are striving to be a better student, business owner or athlete he can partner with you in achieving that. Neurofeedback therapy literately makes you a more intelligent, healthy person. This may be oversimplifying the benefits; however I would describe the results as being similar to the benefits of meditation, only without the years of devoted practice and “Buddhist-monk-level expertise” that it would take to achieve similar results. Anyone struggling with emotional trauma, brain injury or any type of mental-behavioral health concerns should see Dr. Gil as his practice can change your life (it has for those that I have referred to him, one dealing with attention deficit, the other with compulsive behaviors). His practice and the tools he uses are non-invasive and always positive. Anyone and everyone can benefit from his services. I wouldn’t hesitate to make an appointment and see what you can accomplish, achieve, and overcome through his expertise and guidance.” Cassandra W.
“I feel like the Dr. Gil pushed the reset button on my brain. ” Meredith T.
Dr. Gil happens to be one of the most memorable and attentive physicians I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. His commitment to bettering my health and general curiosity on the causes of my health problems have been second to none. He’s never been shy when answering the multitude of questions I’ve presented him with and does his best to provide results. I highly recommend him and his services. –Peter C.
“The process is quick and painless and I’m usually in and out within ten minutes. I immediately feel a heightened state of mind and feel happy, calm, and content.” –MT
“Dr. Gil and his staff are very friendly and efficient. The location of his office is convenient and parking is usually available. He listens well and does a good job explaining what he is doing. As I am currently still in the testing phase of treatment, I am still learning about neurofeedback in general.” –PT
After being diagnosed with a mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) I struggled to find quality care that addressed the psychological aspects of the injury until I found Dr. Gil. The neurofeedback and a tailored supplement regimen informed by lab testing have dramatically helped with symptoms of anxiety, depression and irritability that significantly worsened as a result of the MTBI. I had tried traditional “psych” medication, therapy, speech and occupational therapy with limited benefits. After starting the supplement regimen I went from having panic attacks several times a week to having NO panic attacks in months. I have also felt more energetic and clear headed. I would highly recommend Dr. Gil because he has helped to greatly reduce my symptoms and thereby increase my quality of life. –Jess B.
“Very informative. Took time to understand my situation. Great bed side manner.” –LS
Dr. Gil worked with our 10-year-old foster child along with both my husband and I during very difficult times. This was not only helpful for our foster child’s mood swings and difficult behavior, but also very helpful in helping my husband and I remain calmer in order to be helpful foster parents. Neurofeedback is a quick therapy and thus very much tolerated by a 10 year old not wanting to sit still. The homeopathic remedies also were a continued support. —BA Portland
With the help of Dr. Gil and his neurofeedback practice, I have begun to turn my life around. I firmly believe that neurofeedback has helped my brain potentiate changes in my neurophysiology which have led to increased happiness, positivity, mental alacrity and motivation. The treatment helped allow for perspective and paradigm shifts, which have been immensely beneficial in both my personal and professional lives. When I was undergoing treatment, Dr. Gil advised me that many of the changes from neurofeedback might take a while to manifest, especially for me, as I was getting ready to undergo a year-end career change. In August, I had my first paradigm shift, which led me to stop seeking treatment and to allow myself and my brain to deal with this drastic change. Since that time, several smaller insights and shifts have also occurred, leading me to this career change with renewed creativity and interest in the world which I cannot recall having felt as an adult, and only vaguely as a child. It has been crucial for me to seek myself in other ways including the neurofeedback, and through the holistic effect of these methods, I can scarcely describe the change in my mindset and satisfaction in life. Dr. Gil is a warm and caring man, and always made me feel comfortable and heard during our weekly sessions. I look forward to continuing in my personal growth, and I will be forever grateful for Dr. Gil and the role that he and neurofeedback have played in the greatest success story in my life. –Bryce S
