What People Say About Dr. James Gould, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I have been mostly satisfied with Dr Gould, although I have only seen him 2 times, the other visits have been with his MA. I had the sinus balloon surgery and for the most part I have been less congested but did get an ear infection once again. Just this week I called the office with ear fullness and pain and no one has called me since. I was hoping this wouldn't happen because this is the reason I switched Drs. The procedure was very expensive and for this I don't know if I would recommend it.

Dr. Gould and his staff were awesome from the first appointment all the way through my follow-ups. I had my deviated septum/rhinoplasty in June of 2018. Everything went well and the results have been life changing. I can now breath and sleep much better. Dr. Gould explained the procedure to me and answered many questions I had concerning the recovery. I strongly recommend Dr. Gould if anyone is looking for an ENT to alleviate any sinus issues!

I've been to many doctors in my life & I've never come across a more clean, friendly & professional staff in my life. (Yes, even the front desk staff) I was in amazement honestly. Dr. Gould was fantastic & really took time to hear my concerns. They all put me at ease knowing I'll be having a balloon sinuplasty & tonsils removed. Especially at my age it's a little scary. However, I know I'm in good hands and confident that Dr. Gould & his staff are more than capable of taking great care of me!

Everyone in the office is professional and very friendly. Very clean and nice space as well, you don't feel like you are in the "typical" doctor's office. Dr. Gould is very thorough and goes over all your options and takes the time to make sure he answers all of your questions. I have had significant improvement in my complications since seeing Dr. Gould and his staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Gould!

I was very comfortable and pleased with Dr. Gould, his bedside manner, and his skill as a surgeon. He explains things along the way and answers questions in lay terms. Nice guy, very friendly and professional. Should I need further work in the future this is my only choice, hands down. I'm still in recovery after surgery but can already feel the improvement. Thank you Dr. Gould and staff!

Very kind and professional service. Great new technology and equipment! My Sinuses feel better than they have in a long time. With the current weather I would typically be in severe suffering from a sinus infection and it has been a month since surgery and I feel a slight pressure but nothing close to what I normally feel like. I would highly recommend anyone with sinus issues to see Dr. Gould.

Convenient online access to schedule/update appointments, access required forms, and view patient records. No wait time in the waiting room, with minimal wait time in the exam room. Dr. Gould was thorough in explaining diagnosis and treatment options, ensuring all questions were answered. Treatment/follow up appointments were available without extended wait, and all were scheduled before I left the office,

I performed internet research with the goal of finding a solution to 66 years of sinusitis and the dreaded post-nasal drip. I centered upon the St. Louis Sinus Center and Dr. Gould. The cleanliness of the office and more importantly, the smiling, upbeat and friendly staff was impressive. The evaluation/scan results were as expected. I received excellent pre-op advice and the procedure went as expected with minimal discomfort. The entire staff were competent, friendly and seasoned.
