LPHC Success Stories

  • “Doctor Gill Saved My Life”: Now a Mayor 150 Miles from Chicago,

    Bill Hess Still Relies on Dr. Gill’s Expertise

    Bill Hess doesn’t remember a lot about his heart attack in 1987. He calls his week in cardiac intensive care a “lost period” after his ambulance ride to Lincoln Hospital, where Dr. Gill was head of the cardiology department at the time. One thing that Hess did remember was his care by Dr. Gill; he augments attention from his cardiologist with Dr. Gill’s expertise to this day, despite the fact that Hess is now mayor of Saugatuck, Michigan, a small resort town 150 miles from Chicago.

    The 1987 heart attack had left Hess’ heart damaged. While still a Chicago resident in 2001, he fainted one day for no immediately discernible reason. Under Dr. Gill’s direction, Hess was held for overnight observation, diagnosed with arrhythmia, and eventually transferred to another hospital to have a defibrillator implanted.

    “If it hadn’t been for Dr. Gill’s expertise, I don’t know whether or not I would have received that diagnosis,” recalls Hess. “After the defibrillator was implanted, there were complications. My blood pressure dropped and the staff on duty wasn’t sure what to do. It was getting serious. They were able to immediately get Dr. Gill on the phone, who walked them through the solution.”

    Out of Dr. Gill’s many outstanding qualifications, one of the most important is very simple: He answers his own phone. Patients and colleagues don’t have to wait for a message to be relayed to receive lifesaving information or the Doctor’s trademark calming reassurance.

    During a recent episode in Michigan, Hess’ vision became blurry and his arm went numb. He was admitted to the ER and held overnight. He was able to share Dr. Gill’s cellphone number with the staff, who benefited immediately from the Doctor’s firsthand knowledge of Hess’ health history. The staff were amazed by Dr. Gill’s accessibility and responsiveness.

    “He’s saved my life two or three times now. He’s a terrific doctor,” adds Hess. “Communication with him is excellent. You don’t sit and wait for a phone call. He answers the phone and it’s resolved. His knowledge and bedside manner give me supreme confidence in him.”

  • For 30 Years, Dr. Marco De La Cruz Relies on Dr. Gill’s Compassion and Cardiology Expertise

    Dr. Marco De La Cruz’s long history with Dr. Gill began when he left residency in 1982 and joined the Rush University Physicians at Lincoln Park to practice family medicine. Dr. De La Cruz would remain in practice there for 28 years. During this time, Dr. Gill was the go-to cardiologist for all of the group’s referrals. He remained so for all of Dr. De La Cruz’s tenure there.

    “When Dr. Gill was on the case, I could relax. I knew that what needed to be done would get done,” said Dr. De La Cruz. “He was incredibly efficient and knowledgeable on an academic level and a wonderful, down-to-earth human being at the same time. He was a superb consultant and is still a great friend.”

    Dr. De La Cruz has entrusted both longtime friends and close family to Dr. Gill’s thorough care. When a close friend had a heart attack over a weekend, Dr. De La Cruz was able to consult with Dr. Gill by phone on the weekend. Dr. Gill appeared at the hospital Monday morning to administer the angiogram. That patient remains in Dr. Gill’s care to this day.

    Dr. De La Cruz’s grandmother at one time in her life had been a pack-a-day smoker. After one candid talk with Dr. Gill, she quit the next day.

    “Dr. Gill is everything a good doctor is supposed to be: flexible, kind, compassionate, and he really knows his stuff,” adds Dr. De La Cruz.

  • On Day Off, Dr. Gill Arrives to Diagnose Unusual Heart Attack Symptoms

    Steve Georgoules knew about the classic symptoms of a heart attack—chest and arm pains—and he didn’t have any of them. However, he was somewhat concerned about a burning sensation in his chest. His father had a history of severe heartburn, but he wanted to be sure. He visited his doctor (Doctor De La Cruz), who relayed his concerns to Dr. Gill for an expert perspective that evening.

    The following day, Dr. Gill arrived on his day off to personally examine Steve, after which he drove Steve to the hospital in his own car. Steve’s main artery was almost 100% clogged. Dr Gill arranged for same-day surgery.

    “He just completely took control and made it happen,” said Steve. “He made it much easier on me, taking time on his day off and likely preventing a heart attack and major damage to my heart.”

    When the same symptoms recurred a year later, Dr. Gill guided Steve through all the tests necessary to determine the problem, resulting in a second procedure in which a stint was implanted.

    “He’s a great individual,” added Steve. “He’s one of the most careful, caring physicians I’ve ever met. Not only extremely capable, but concerned and caring. While in his office, I’ve seen him exercise the same patient, reassuring touch with other patients; he’s almost always available by phone to everybody under his care.”

    Two and a half years after his initial episode, Steve remains under Dr. Gill’s care, confident that the doctor will help him meet the next challenge, no matter when it arises.

  • Decades of Thorough Attention, Levelheaded Response Mean Theresa Permoda Still Enjoys a Father in Her Life

    Being keenly receptive to a patient’s warning signs and taking the right course of action is critical. Chicago resident Theresa Permoda saw this first-hand while her father, Charles Culbertson, weathered several harrowing heart episodes over the past three decades.

    Dr. Gill cared for Theresa’s father when a series of silent heart attacks left him clinging to life in an ambulance on the way to Grant Hospital. Dr. Gill helped keep him alive en route to the surgical room, where Charles had his first open-heart bypass surgery.

    “During surgery, he waited until our family had arrived and explained everything about the procedure,” recalls Theresa. “My father wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for Dr. Gill. He’s on top of everything.”

    Charles remained under Dr. Gill’s care and monitoring. Years later, complaining of what he thought was a cold, Charles saw Dr. Gill for an examination. Dr. Gill detected a blockage and immediately scheduled him for surgery—a quadruple bypass.

    Dr. Gill’s thorough attention to Charles yielded benefits beyond cardiac care. During a routine blood test, he spotted signs of prostate cancer—found early enough to be treatable.

    For 32 years, through two bypass surgeries and a pacemaker, Theresa’s family has come to rely on Dr. Gill’s thorough approach, accessibility, and calm, compassionate response to health challenges. Dr. Gill cares for both Theresa’s mother and father to this day. She has referred her father-in-law.

    Suffering from aneurysms in his stomach, Charles remains in Dr. Gill’s close care. “He’s part of our family,” says Theresa. “If I need him when Dad’s not feeling good, I hear back from him within the hour.

    “I understand that people have to go when it’s their time, but I truly feel that God is working through Dr. Gill and his knowledge to help people. He’s a wonderful man and a great doctor.”

    Stay Active After Heart Attack Discuss with your doctor first Having a heart attack shouldn’t put an end to an active lifestyle. The American Heart Association offers these guidelines for when you resume exercise:
    • Exercise only if your doctor says it’s safe.
    • Begin each workout with a gentle warm-up and end with a cooldown.
      Monitor the intensity of your activity, making sure it’s within the recommended range.
    • Monitor your heart rate and blood pressure.
    • Be aware of warning signs that you’re pushing yourself too hard, including chest pain, light-headedness or feeling out of breath.
  • FIVE Medication-Free Strategies to help prevent heart disease.
    You can prevent heart disease by following a heart-healthy lifestyle.
    1. Don’t smoke or use tobacco: Smoking or using tobacco is one of the most significant risk factors for developing heart disease.
    2. Exercise for 30 minutes on most days of the week: Getting some regular, daily exercise can reduce your risk of fatal heart disease.
    3. Eat a heart-healthy diet: Eating a special diet called the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH: diet means eating foods that are low in fat, cholesterol and salt.) eating plan can help protect your heart.
    4. Maintain a healthy weight: As you put on weight in adulthood, your weight gain is mostly fat rather than muscle. This excess weight can lead to conditions that increase your chances of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.
    5. Get regular health screenings: High blood pressure and high cholesterol can damage your heart and blood vessels. Regular screening can tell you what your numbers are and whether you need to take action.
