    Hes Awful!!!! He prescribes suboxin on the side to make extra money. He has no clue about addiction or how to work with addicts. I failed one uribe test in 8 months an he kicked me out. I had only seen him twice. I failed cause i took sum adderall for energy, I have to work. 95% of suboxin patients have no jobs. Not everybody can lay around in Moms trailer sucking on a suboxin strip. I was weak once an he dismissed me with no conversation. What is a neurosurgeon doing prescribing suboxin

    Avoid! My appointment was for 830. Dr. Gilbert came walking in the office at 9:35. I saw him about 15 minutes later, and he spent all of 3 minutes with me, looking at a 2 year old MRI and talking about how back surgery had been approved for my kind of degeneration. Then he asked me if I would like a steroid shot. WTF your the doctor, why don''t you tell me if I would like one!?! His inattention should and may be criminal. If you want drugs this is your guy, if you want help, go elsewhere.
