Dr. Gould listened, explained, and understood my condition with great expertise. She obviously cares very much about her patients quality of life. She spent more than an hour with me answering questions and did not seem rushed. She validated years of pain I had experienced!

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.

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.
