in Placentia, CA |
Dr. Gibbs is an honest and communicative doctor. I'm pretty picky and ask a lot of questions and he did not make me feel uncomfortable in doing so nor did he take a dismissive tone in addressing my concerns like many doctors. He is truly exceptional, personable, and while our surgery date is pending, I believe my son is in extraordinarily capable hands. Wonderful bedside manner as well and accessibility.
