great visit with my doctor. my only call out is that the reception area was dirty/dusty and cluttered with random sloppy hand written notes of inspiration and taped up magazine clippings all over the walls. Made me nervous as it was my first time as a patient that the exam room would be as dirty as the front desk. As a first impression of the front desk it wasn't great. The clerks were very nice but less clutter and some daily cleaning/dusting would be nice for the patients that visit that office.

she is an amazing provider. my issues were addressed immediately and my appointment was scheduled promptly. I was able to have the ultrasound I needed right before my appointment. the tech was great too. very comforting. I felt I was in great hands the entire time and I'm sure I will feel the same for my surgery. I'm so glad to have found Claire.

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.

receptionist seemed to be focus on socializing - when I was checking out I wanted to make another appointment and theist sitting up there told me this isn't where she's working today and wasn't logged on a willing to make an appointment, but seemed put out. I told her that I would just call later

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.
