My mother was diagnosed with cancer out of the blue and many physicians called us and discussed hospice. It was an emotional roller coaster for our family as we were overwhelmed with several opinions. We met Dr Tully who introduced us to Dr Gibbon . Our first visit was a tele appointment and she was very comforting in her approach. She was extremely patient, culturally sensitive in talking to us regarding my mother's condition. She coordinated with various specialists and got my mother to the surgery within 3 weeks of the first consultation. It was the hardest time to have a family member in the hospital due to COVID times and never once Dr Gibbon made us feel that way. She facetimed us every single visit so I had a chance to explain to my mother and was updated on her medical condition. Our family is ever grateful to Dr Gibbon for her excellent care for my mother and her professional communication with us. She is truly dedicated and compassionate . Thank you Dr Gibbon !!

Needs more compassion. Good dr but she needs to be nicer and kinder. And there’s zero follow up by her office. No one cares how I’m feeling or how I’m doing.

This individual is unworthy of a medical license. She is cold, callous, manipulative, explosive when her ego feels challenged. She does not care about you or your family. She only aspires to graduate you to your death. I found her particularly sadistic, and let it be known she messed up with a toxic dosage of anti-seizure medicine, causing a violent reaction. Beware, she is heartless. There is no soul, nor compassion in her care.

Dr. Gibbon and her amazing staff are the reason that I am able to write this review today. From the time that my first CT scan showed a large growth, through extensive surgery and chemotherapy she has been there for me in every way. She cares not only for her patient's physical well being but their mental and emotional health as well. I never feel rushed when I meet with her and no question is ever too small. From the moment I met her I immediately felt that I was going to be well taken care of

I recently had surgery by Dr. Gibbon. My surgery was a very complicated surgery also it was a bloodless medicine surgery. She made me feel comfortable. She explained everything in a way that I understood completely what was going to take place. Her beside manner was amazing. I would recommend her to anyone. The staff is very pleasant to work with.

Dr. Gibbon has been wonderful as my doctor. I have ovarian cancer and she has done everything possible to find the best treatments for me - never giving up even when there were unforeseen difficulties. She also did a great job as one of my surgeons during my recent extensive surgery. I am very happy and would recommend her to anyone dealing with gynecological cancer. She is patient and supportive as well as knowledgeable and she spends the time to answer all your questions.

Never ever see this dr. This Doctor is not only flippant and insensitive in her responses and her receptionist is lacking customer service, she only cares about her money and not her patients and the self serving status and prestige in her field she thrives on She acts as if she’s god and she is not. I got terribly injured after the robotic surgery and experienced horrible side effects after the surgery she did not explain. You don’t heal after robotic surgery in 2 weeks. Lies and money love

When I found out that I might have cancer, I immediately contacted one of my best friends, who is a cancer research specialist / nurse practitioner and has worked in some of the top cancer facilities in NYC & NJ. Her response was that if she were in my position, she would go to Dr. Gibbon. To do diligence I met with another top cancer center and was treated like a number. Dr. Gibbon is the most caring and invested health care practitioner I have ever met. I am confident I am in great hands!

While I hope none of my friends or family would need her services, there is no one other than Dr. Gibbon I would refer them to. She's extremely competent and caring, very down to earth and humane. Dr. Gibbon listens to your concerns and explains reasons for choosing one treatment over another very thoroughly, she treats all with respect.

I recently had surgery for a malignant tumor and Susan, Dr. Gibbon's scheduler refused to give me an appointment because I can cancelled before a couple times due to their unreasonable requirement of me providing every copy of MRI and report, without helping to acquire them from my dr. Scheduler acts like the gatekeeper of life and death. Cancers hard enough to deal with.
