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.
