Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Caring Thorough Doctor
I have been seeing Dr. Gilbertson here and there for several different conditions and tests for a few years. I have been very consistently impressed with his care, attentiveness, thoroughness in exam, and how personable he is, including responding to portal messages himself most of the time. My care and outcomes have always been good. Wait times are the only challenge Ive encountered but even then he’s pretty flexible about making sure you get seen.

Weak listening skills, disheveled office environment, unable to address my urgent needs. Seemed rushed and distracted during my brief, 5 minute appointment.

I have been seeing Dr. Gilbertson for many years. I have always believed he acted in my best interests. He is kind and competent, and very very thorough. He is rarely more than a few minutes behind schedule which I appreciate. I can't say that seeing a dermatologist is my favorite thing to do, but I am very happy that I have Dr. Gilbertson when I need to see one.

SAVED MY LIFE!! I went in for just a routine acne exam and checkup. Dr. Gilbertson was first dermatologist to do a complete skin exam and found a suspicious looking mole between my toes ..discovered Melanoma early. If I didn't go to him, it would never have been found and I may be 6 feet under now.
