Contact Dr. Barry Gillespie
If you live in the lower 48 states, Dr. Barry Gillespie will happily talk to you at no charge if you have any specific questions about yourself or your child. If he does not think he can help, he will tell you on the phone to avoid a trip to the office. If you are outside this area and would like to email him, please write him via the form at the end of this page.
Dr. Barry Gillespie will make every effort to be open and honest about you and/or your child’s situation. Please ask him questions at any time during your care. He wants fully informed and happy people. His goal is to have healthy newborns, children and adults, who do not need him anymore. That is the big reason why his schedule is open for new patients.
Patients of All Ages Are Welcome
Very simply stated, Dr. Barry Gillespie will evaluate and treat any patient with a brain that needs to breathe. For more than 40 years, almost every patient has come to him with “incurable condition(s).” Patients may already have been to the best medical centers in America. This is routine for Dr. Barry Gillespie. The critical factor is that no medical professional checked patients’ brain motion and fascial function. If these two aspects are significantly contributing to the problem(s), which is true in most cases, there is a good chance for correction.
About Your Visit
Dr. Barry Gillespie is known for being on time for his appointments. Newborns will need only a 30-minute visit for evaluation and therapy. Every child and adult patient will need an evaluation visit of 30 minutes. Dr. Gillespie will personally take the history, do the clinical examination, discuss therapy and answer any questions. You will be under no obligation to begin therapy.
Dr. Barry Gillespie has been retired from periodontics since 1997 and no longer practices dentistry. But he will give you his opinion on your oral situation as it relates to brain motion and fascial restriction.
Each therapy visit will be 30 minutes. Dr. Barry Gillespie does not have an associate, and you will see him at every visit for care. If you would like to begin therapy with him for your child or yourself during that first visit, please schedule a 60-minute visit with the receptionist.
If you are driving a distance to the office, after the first visit you can schedule a 60-minute therapy visit to cut down your travel time over the series of treatments. If you are coming from New York City or a like distance away, you can schedule an hour visit before lunch and a second hour visit after lunch for a day-trip.
If you are flying in for care, Dr. Gillespie does intensive therapy sessions from Monday through Wednesday. After agreeing on a specific week ahead of time for you to book flights, he would treat you and/or your child approximately two hours per day for each of the three days.
Please rent a car at the Philadelphia International Airport and book a hotel room in King of Prussia (19406 zip code), minutes from the office. All the major hotel chains are in the area.
Patients pay at each visit, and there is no contract to sign for future visits. Dr. Barry Gillespie usually recommends a few visits to see a positive response to therapy. He wants you to see an improvement before continuing the work.
Insurance will not cover therapy, even if there is a full recovery. Since Dr. Gillespie founded and has developed this therapy from the 1970s, it is nowhere on the insurance radar screen. Checks from the USA are welcomed, but, sorry, credit cards are not taken. Please call the office for the fee schedule and with other questions.
Dr. Barry Gillespie maintains a private practice in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. The Gillespie Approach office has plenty of parking and is located about three minutes from the King of Prussia Mall, the largest mall in America. Also, Valley Forge National Historical Park, a noted tourist attraction where George Washington wintered in 1778 with his troops, is about a mile away.
