    Dr. Gaughan has been one of my medical provider's now for just over 10-yrs. I was born with a metabolic bone disease and Dr. Gaughan has used her skills & knowledge in Neurology to help me live a more comfortable & higher quality life. Dr. Gaughan has helped treat some of my family members with both acute & chronic Neurological issues. One thing setting Dr Gaughan apart from other specialists is her level of truly caring & treating her patients as more than a income source !

    She is hands down the most rude and cold medical professional I have ever met. Does not in any way, shape, or form care about patients. Incredibly dismissive and unprofessional. Tried to end appointment without explaining problem.
