I worked at Dr. Gould’s office for 11 years. The doctor who he replaced, O.C. Olson, M.D. searched for his replacement 3 1/2 years, hiring Dr. Gould whom he considered genius., and that was what he looked for. His bedside manner may not be fabulous but he only tells you 100% truth if you listen and he will help improve your health amazingly. A member of our staff at the time went to him in desperation for a hormone disorder she’d suffered with for 4 years. Within 3 days she was healed after his medicine combination. He won’t coddle anyone but people travelled from everywhere to benefit from his genius. I was thrilled he still practices. He’s probably the best endocrinologist in the world. You are so blessed to have that man. We heard of his miracles for years, quit suffering and see him for true care. He won’t live forever.

AVOID THIS CREEP AT ALL COSTS!!! Saw him for the first time for a Diabetes Endo appointment. After questioning me on how I currently manage my diabetes, he would roll his eyes and shake his head. I would try to explain my answers and he would cut me off. He did a physical exam, which I had just done with my general doctor, so I KNOW this was not necessary at all. He had me drink a cup of warm tap water and pushed on my throat when I swallowed to "check my thyroid". I had just done blood work to literally check my thyroid levels. I've had diabetes for a decade and have never had someone choke me to check my thyroid before. Then he needed to check my stomach, and had me lay down on the table. He lifted up my shirt without warning or permission to expose my stomach. My general doctor didn't make me remove any clothing when they did the exact same thing. Why this weirdo needed to see skin is beyond what I can fathom. What year is he practicing medicine in?! I left in tears because I felt s

Dr Gould is lazy, unprepared & blamed me for not doing a study with other Dr before seeing him. My physician said Gould was supposed to recommend a study. He did nothing. Oh, Gould ripped me in his notes to the recommending clinic. So unprofessional. What a jerk.

Dr.Gould is very knowledgable and helpful. He is also straightforward and a bit gruff, if you can appreciate that then he is your doctor. He treats me for type 2 diabetes and both of our goals are trying to get my sugar levels down and under control. He is very good at what he does. His assistant Marisol is the VERY best, she is very personable and helpful. The front desk assistants are also very nice. I do wish that their waiting area had more pamphlets and information regarding diabetes care.

My mother went into A-Fib and CHF after having a thyroidectomy, because Dr. Gould thought it would be a good idea to not check her blood work and double the dose of her thyroid meds which put her into hyperthyroid. Her heart rate hit 200 and her lungs filled up with fluid. The Dr.'s at the hospital were shocked at the dose this incompetent idiot had her at. Very lucky we got her to the hospital when we did. She was admitted into ICU for 3 days.

Had a little wait due to a problem with another patient. He knows his stuff and likes things to be simple. Doesn't beat around the bush, he gets straight to the point, some people may not like that but it didn't bother me. This was my first visit to him and I will going back.
