      VERY RUDE!! UNPROFESSIONAL!! CRUEL! My friend called me hysterical from parking lot after her appt. She lost her pain dr in VT due to his serious illness. His staff made appt with gaughan and sent her records. My friend has been on high dose of methadone and lyrica for over 11yrs. Nvr failed urine test or pill count. Gaughan ACCUSED her of abusing her meds!! Wouldnt let her talk. Didnt care if she went into withdrawal, refused help into detox. VT dr called Ellen to say she NVR abused her meds

      This doctor wants large sums of money UP FRONT, So you pay her. THEN, cuts you OFF controlled medications with NO NOTICE eaving you in drug withdrawal and refuses to take responsibility for it., a final script or a referral. Should not be in practice.
      in Upper Saranac Lake, NY |
      Dr. Gaughan has been one of my medical provider's now for just over 10-yrs. I was born with a metabolic bone disease and Dr. Gaughan has used her skills & knowledge in Neurology to help me live a more comfortable & higher quality life. Dr. Gaughan has helped treat some of my family members with both acute & chronic Neurological issues. One thing setting Dr Gaughan apart from other specialists is her level of truly caring & treating her patients as more than a income source !
      in Willsboro, NY |
      She is hands down the most rude and cold medical professional I have ever met. Does not in any way, shape, or form care about patients. Incredibly dismissive and unprofessional. Tried to end appointment without explaining problem.
      Plattsburgh |
      My experience with her was terrible. She was rude and i,felt she didn't care enough about my Concerns.I think it's time for her to retire he is definitely not up to date with modern medical technology...

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
