I've been going to Dr. Gayle for about 30 years. He has always been very friendly and includes me in decision making regarding my health care. He listens and does not rush me which makes me feel he cares; makes me feel like I'm the only patient he has that day. I highly recommend Dr. Gayle.

I've trusted Dr. Gayle for my OBGYN needs for 25+ years. He provided excellent care with my two pregnancies. He also provided phenomal care for my endometriosis and associated problems. He can't retire because I need him to be my OBGYN forever. :-)

Dr.Gayle's office was very unprofessional. They belittled every issue that I came to them with as if it wasn't a issue at all. They pretty much sent me away after I expressed my concerned with them. They referred me to one of the worst clinics in Shreveport. I'm pretty sure it wasn't just a coincidence that the clinic was ghetto and resembled a free clinic.

I hardly saw him at appts (maybe 3 times) and when I did all he ever said was hello and see you xweeks. Labor was where Gayle lost all of my respect. I was given an episiotomy without any kind of consent or knowledge beforehand. I had just gotten my epidural and he laid scissors down on the table and I asked what did he just do and that's when he told me. He pulled my placenta out without giving me a chance to push. Even made sarcastic comment about baby's weight with no kind of humor.
