Gilbert was so kind to the patients and worked well with the nursing staff. He taught me a lot about wound care when I was a new grad nurse. Although he was always busy, he did his work diligently and followed up on his patients even when it was not convenient for him. Thank you and you will be missed by SKH

I was new at Skokie and Gil was so kind and welcoming, and remembered working with me at Evanston. Gil was such a lovely warm soul and will be missed.

I was covering for an OT who was sick at Skokie, and was nervous because I didn’t know anyone. Gil made me feel welcome, and was just so genuine and kind. The world is a sadder place without him

Gil and I met when we both joined CGMC in 2012. His laugh and spirit were contagious. All of us at CGMC are saddened by his passing.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Gilbert taught me how to be a caring physical therapist when I was a student at Skokie Hospital. He was a friend to everyone around him, and always made me laugh. He will be missed and I will carry forward what I learned from him in my own practice.
