Dr. Gould is so great at making her patients feel comfortable during an uncomfortable procedure (i.e. Pap smear, etc.). She was genuinely interested in my life and remembered details about me from an appointment almost 3 whole years ago. I really appreciate her care, and would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Dr.Gould was amazing and I feel in very good hands with her. She was very understanding and matches my view on avoiding any unnecessary exams or treatments. Only comment I have Is about the nurse, pls do not call out people's weight out loud and then repeat this twice more. I gained weight the past year in fertility treatments which has been hard and I don't want to know my weight. It felt very unnecessary for her to keep repeating what my weight was.

Dr. Gould is an incredible doctor, has excellent bedside manner AND is an excellent surgeon. She knows her stuff better than anyone. Her Medical Assistant is beyond amazing too. She also has an excellent bedside manner, fantastic clinical skills and really sets the tone for the entire visit. She and Dr Gould work very well together and are we obviously a great team. The clinic staff are always good although they seem understaffed and overwhelmed at this time. The high number of calls and patients checking in was far higher than should be expected for two of them to handle or even three as there often is. They were kind and courteous to everyone that they engaged with, but you could see the overwhelm and exhaustion all over their faces.
