Doctor and front office staff are exceptional. MA leaves a lot to be desired - no bedside manner to speak of, doesn't greet patient or make eye contact with them, does not update medications in system (as proven by an after visit summary that had incorrect medications listed), does not look at paperwork the patient has filled out, and is generally unfriendly.

I understand that the next time I come in to "see" Dr. Gould I will not see her. I have been transferred to a different CARE GIVER dr. or dr. assistant. I don't like so many changes. This one will be the 4th or 5th person.

Dr. Gould was amazing. She was on time, professional, answered any and all questions and concerns I had. Not only not that but she let me know about upcoming tests I would need to maintain my health and never forced it upon me when I told her I didn't have time for testing that day. She was so kind and I could tell she just wanted to do the best job she possibly could for all her patients. She was lovely. 10/10 service with her.

Dr. Gould has been the only gynecologist that I have ever seen who understood my symptoms and diagnosed me with having something. I now have a clear understanding of what is happening in my body and what my options are which will help me. I now feel more in control of what is happening to me and I know that Dr. Gould is there to help me along this journey. She is an amazing doctor.

the office phoned me and said Dr. Gould wanted to see me. they didn't say why. I made an appointment for 0845. when I arrived at 0835 there was a sign saying they were in a meeting. at 9:05 the meeting was out and I asked the receptionist about my 8:45 appointment and she said my appointment was for 9. I told her it was made for 8:45 by their office. I was finally taken back at 9:15 and I asked the MA about the appointment and she said my appointment was actually at 9:15 and the MA is supposed to have 15 minutes with me before seeing the doctor. I told the MA and De. Gould that I wasn't very happy. it's not easy to mistake 8:45 for 9:15. dr Gouldwas very understanding and said she would talk to the schedulers. there was another women who came in the office about 10 minutes after me and she was mad and said this always happens to her. everyone was pleasant and again Dr. Gould was wonderful and said if I didn't say anything she wouldn't know if there was a problem. she is an excellent doctor. love her to pieces.

Dr. Claire Gould went above and beyond any sort of expectations I have ever had for doctor. with Dr.Goulds leading knowledge of endometriosis,we were able to find it and treat me quickly before it got worse. not only did Dr. Gould to remove my endometriosis, she respected the fact that I want to have children and made my body healthy year for pregnancy. not only would I trust her to do all of my future surgeries I will continue to wear for all of my friends and family to her because she is amazing. Dr. Claire Gould is a God sent. I can't not thank her enough. I went from being in pain every single day with very low energy to now being on no pain management and functioning like a normal person again. Dr. Gould saved my life. I am forever grateful.

Dr. Gould was amazing. she was very knowledgeable, explained everything so very clear. Provided all options for treatment, referred me to appropriate specialist, ordered appropriate tests. As a patient who has not been able to find a provider that I connected with and felt my voice was heard, I was a bit nervous. Dr. Gould instantly squashed any of my thoughts. she's kind, gentle, speaks in laymen 's terms and is a wonderful physician. I honestly look forward to our next visit. I'm very excited to have found such a great person to oversee my care.
