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.

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.

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.

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

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:)

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!

  Feb 14, 2023
I have had a need to see physicians often for a long term problem. NEVER have I had such a positive experience as I did at Dr. Gould's office. From the front desk to the MAs, to Alison, the US technician, to Dr. Gould, everyone was professional and caring. My ultrasound was shown and explained to me. This has never happened. When Dr. Gould first met with me she thoroughly explained my options for both of my concerns. After the ultrasound was finished, she again came into the room to discuss the results and ask if I had further questions. I have truly never felt so cared for and respected. An extremely positive experience.

Waiting room is nice and relaxing. I did not wait long in the room and doctor was very cordial.

  Jan 10, 2023
Dr. Gould was incredible. I had extremen anxiety surrounding my appointment for an IUD removal and placement. She went above and beyond to encourage me and make sure the appointment was as comfortable as possible. She empowered me and made me feel seen and heard. She didn't minimize my anxiety like a lot of providers have in the past and she treated me with kindness and respect. She made something incredibly scary feel ok.

  Jan 9, 2023
The intake nurse was very pleasant to talk with. Doctor Gould was very knowledgeable and good at communicating information to me in a way I understood. You can tell she does thorough research that would be beyond standard. She was kind and answered all of my questions in detail. Other gynecologists I have been to made me feel rushed and had multiple people in the room. Claire Gould took her time and wrote her own notes just her and I were talking. She really listened to my concerns. She presented me with multiple good treatment options. She was considerate with my concerns and offered to answer any more questions I thought of on the portal. I am excited to have her as a doctor.

  Jan 3, 2023
