Dr. Gould is an incredible doctor. She is absolutely brilliant, is trauma informed, patient centered, has a high emotional IQ and is just generally the best of the best. I wish all of my providers were this good! She listens to me, cares about my well-being and is incredibly trustworthy.

Dr. Gould is an excellent doctor. That being said, the care that she provides occurs with multiple people on a daily basis, and the care I receive from her (for a surgery) effects me for the rest of my life. Something that is a big deal to me can be routine for a surgeon, and I think that sometimes this can be forgotten, especially if the doctor is very busy. As I said earlier though, Dr. Gould is an excellent doctor and I would definitely recommend her to others and continue to see her when needed.

I adore Dr. Gould, I literally recommend her to strangers, she gave me back my life and for that I am eternally grateful. Every time I visit with her she listens to me carefully, she looks me in the eyes when I talk, she asks thoughtful questions, she is respectful and sympathetic of my issues. It literally makes me tear up just thinking about how thankful I am to have her taking care of my health. I could not be happier with Legacy or with Dr. Gould's care.

Dr. Gould was great. She was kind, listened and answered my questions. I felt safe with her as my surgeon. After my surgery, I did wish someone had checked in with me sooner, I was anxious. Also, I would like to recommend that her medical assistants fight with the patient over whether they want to be weighed. I had two bad visits w/the MA's.

Dr. Gould was very personable and was a good listener. she also explained things very well and have me options. Her MA (sorry I forgot her name but she introduced herself) was very attentive, also, I didn't feel like I was being rushed. I'm glad I was referred to this office.

I hold a great deal of admiration for Dr. Gould. During my exams, she puts me at ease with her calm and gentle manner, takes the time to explain what's going on, answers my questions, and treats me in a most caring and respectful way. Dr. Gould is an exceptional provider. I wish she could be my PCP!

After 4 different doctors, Dr.Gould finally listened to me and all of my concerns and symptoms. She was the first doctor that mentioned to me that I have Endometriosis. I felt understood and that my condition was validated. She is really a skilled surgeon and also treats with care and respect. She gave me my life back, and I'm so thankful that I found her!

Provider was very rushed. There was not time to ask questions or fully discuss next steps. I am not sure that provider understood when I told her the current course of treatment I've been undergoing is not working. There was no discussion about other options for treatment. Saw provider for a total of only 5 minutes.

Felt that the provider did not let me talk enough about my concerns, cut me off in sentence. Did not take enough time looking into my chart/familiar with my history and was not familiar enough with treatments I felt can help.

Doctor was very knowledgeable and a great listener! She answered all of my questions, understood my unique medical history and how it applies to the problem I was seeing her for. She understood my problems and very clearly communicated her plan to try adressing them, and what else we can try if the first steps do not work. It was a great appointment, and I feel very confident in my care from her, especially because I was quite nervous when I originally arrived.

Dr. Claire Gould is an amazing physician. She is professional with a great personal and caring touch. I immediately felt comfortable with her manner and personal interest in my condition. This is very important to me, as I am a [removed for patient privacy], who desires to be treated as I treat others. I know how to recognize good care and when someone is genuine. This office from first phone call, doing online forms, to meeting front desk folks, to having my exam, and then exiting office, gave me great assurance that I would (and did) receive professional care, based on who I was, not just a perception of my issues. I have always had excellent care by Legacy physicians; for women's issues, she is definitely the best. Thank you Dr. Gould and staff!

Dr. Gould is a real gem, she perfectly balances empathy with effectiveness and action. I worry less about an issue knowing I'm going to see her and shes the only Dr. I've seen where I'm not trying to actively manage my own care because I know she is doing her job fully and sees me as a whole human and is up to date on the science without having lost her humanity.

Dr. Gould is by far the BEST doctor that Legacy employs, or at least in the top two. She has been beyond amazing every time she has worked with me. She is kind, humble and very knowledgeable. It isn't often that you meet a DR who has every character trait you could wish for. Thank you for sharing her with me. I will be a patient of hers for as long as she has me.

This was my first visit and she listened to what was going on with me and helped me understand my options and the pros and cons of each choice. She is bright and really seemed to care about what had to say. She was clear and not pushy about what she would want me to do. She also was open to hearing my suggestions and observations about my condition.
