The best! Loved Dr Gould and her treatment and bedside manner!

My previous OBGYN was not the best when it came to concerns about my family history and my health connected to that. So I was very nervous about seeing a new doctor but she was absolutely amazing. I felt truly connected with her and she gave me so much information which was a first for me. She is is the best OBGYN ever and I appreciate her so much!

Dr Gould is the best

Dr. Gould and her MA Fern are amazing! Always listen to my questions and provide kind, professional service.

  Nov 27, 2023
The question on follow up with lab results is not a fair reflection of the service, because this was the first time I saw Dr Gould and the blood test was only ordered and done yesterday, so I had to answer never.

She is the very best obgyn I have ever seen

Love Dr. Gould. Worked with her in the OR for many years and her skills, compassion to her patients and staff goes above and beyond. Good educator to staff. Everyone at both of her clinics are well prepared, professional and kind. Best gyn I've ever been too. Dr. Gould helped me though an incredibly upsetting time with my previous gynecologist. I felt so lucky to see her and have her take her time to talk with me even though I wasn't her patient at the time. I was seeing a NP and she spoke with Dr. Gould and the rest is history. She helped save me from a mental health breakdown 10+ stars for every one there.

Dr Gould is so caring, Empathic and knowledgeable

  Sep 25, 2023
Probably one of the best Dr. Visits I've ever had!

  Sep 14, 2023
Provider was very nice. I would have liked more in depth explainations about surgery and disease. I felt that the answers I was given were very short / least information possible.

I really love Dr. Gould. She is so knowledgeable, helpful and personable during my visits. She cares about her patients. I highly recommend her and Legacy.

Dr. Gould is an incredible provider. I have raved about her for years after my very first visit with her was filled with her listening intently to my concerns and teaching me how to advocate for myself in women's health. She continues to always care for my opinion on my care and includes me in my plan of care. She is such an asset to the medical field and women's health in particular.

  Aug 1, 2023
Dr. Gould is awesome. I wish all specialists were more willing to listen about all your health problems and not just their specialized area.

  Jul 27, 2023
Dr. Gould is an amazing provider. She always seems to remember my history and what we talked about even months ago. She was early to get me into my appointment and is very compassionate and easy to understand. I always leave our visits feeling like I have good clarity about my decisions and direction.

  Jul 18, 2023
My time to arrive was at 10 AM . I did. My time for procedure was 10:45. I was not aware that the time gap would be this long. For my next visit I'll know and bring reading material. I would have appreciated knowing for this visit. Thank you.

Provider instilled trust and went out of her way to show care and make me feel better.

  Jul 11, 2023
I don't feel that I received the thorough examination that I scheduled myself for. The assistant didn't appear to know what my needs were when she brought me to the exam room. Not enough time was spent with me. My vital signs were not completely and accurately taken.

  Jul 10, 2023
Dr. Gould is an amazing physician. She is compassionate, patient centered and always takes time to make sure my medical concerns are heard. I have trust in her and she makes a difference in how I feel about my health.

Good - great provider. Thoughtful, listened well, knowledgeable Opportunity for improvement - the parking validation that the clinic gave me was "expired" per the gate machine. I had to speak with gate agent to help me.

  Jul 10, 2023
Love Dr. Gould. Worked with her in the OR for many years and feel very lucky I was able to be her patient after a traumatic incident with my previous gyn.

  Jun 12, 2023
Very good with the whole experience...

  Jun 8, 2023
Dr Gould spent so much time with me as a first time patient and listened to all of my needs and was very knowledgeable.

  Jun 6, 2023
Dr. Gould is simply the best. The most caring provider I've ever had. She never gave up and found my cause of pain.

  Jun 5, 2023
Dr. Gould is amazing. There's not enough space here to sing her praises.

  May 30, 2023
Communication with the office prior to the visit was not good. It was not clearly communicated that I needed to go to the medical office in a different location, so I showed up to my normal office without enough time to get across town.

  May 15, 2023
Dr Gould is the finest gynecologist I have ever been a patient of

This was the first time I met Dr. Gould and she was the best GYN provider I've ever had. I'm so glad I found her!

Your My Health website needs some work. I was unable to check in for this appointment online, despite being encouraged to do so. When the website prompted me to verify my cell phone number, the screen froze and I could not get beyond this glitch to check in despite several re-tries.

  Apr 27, 2023
Dr. Gould is the best provider I have ever seen and I feel lucky she is my doctor. She listens, she is empathetic, she explains what she is doing during an exam, and she asks questions. I have seen many doctors over the years for my health and Dr. Gould is by far the best provider I have seen. I recommend her to my peers often.

  Apr 25, 2023
Dr Gould and staff were amazing. I was extremely anxious for this appt for some pretty serious health issues. Dr Gould had such a great bedside manner, I felt instantly relieved once she began speaking. She was very caring and thorough. She Spent time explaining things to me. I think this was the best 1st doctors appt I have ever had. Now if we could just clone her:)

Very much appreciated the quick in and out!! Dr. Gould and her staff are wonderful!

  Apr 13, 2023
Everyone was very nice and knowledgeable.

  Apr 11, 2023
Dr. Gould took time before the procedure to introduce herself, answer questions, outline the procedure and put me at ease. Although the clinic was ultra-busy' everyone treated me patiently. I thank them for that.

  Apr 11, 2023
Professional and respectful. I was given all the information needed to make an educated decision on my treatment and I wasn't belittled like my previous Dr. Dr. Gould was great and honest with what she could and couldn't do. I wish all would be like her!

  Apr 3, 2023
