Dr Gould listens to you and cares for his patients.
Much appreciated!
in St Louis, MO |
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,
We value feedback such as yours. Thank you!

Dr. Gould & his staff are excellent at making you feel comfortable & at communicating about your diagnosis & planned treatment. So glad I found out about sinus balloon dilation after suffering with problems for years. In addition, their website is very informative & it answers a lot of the questions about what causes sinus problems & how they're treated. Very pleased that the dilation procedure was done in-office without general anesthetic & the recovery time is so quick.
Thanks for taking time to provide us feedback!

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.
Walter Lamkin, thanks for your praise and kind comments about our team. Please don't hesitate to reach out if there's anything additional we can do for you.

I'm so glad I chose to see Dr. Gould! He is extremely thorough and professional. His staff is very friendly and go out of their way to make my appointment smooth! I would definitely recommend Dr. Gould to anyone who has sinus problems!
in O Fallon, MO |
I highly recommend Dr. Gould and his team to anyone with a sinus condition. I came to Dr. Gould to review the options for a chronic sinus condition i've had since my youth and now much older (think 50). after testing for environmental allergens and a sinus scan i opted for initially a balloon sinuplasty procedure. I can say that i'm able to breath better than ever through my nasal passages after couple days !
in Fenton, MO |
I went to Dr. Gould for a consult after seeing a story about him on our local Show Me St. Louis program. The procedure he performed is the best step I have ever taken to dealing with my sinus issues. We are so pleased with the results that my son is going to see him as well! His staff is courteous and friendly You are greeted when you enter the waiting area by the receptionists. The wait times are relatively short and I have NEVER been rushed during an appointment. Thank you, Dr. Gould!!!
in Arnold, MO |
After 3 previous sinus surgical procedures and several sinus office visits, I saw a billboard for Dr. Gould. I scheduled an appt. I was a candidate for balloon sinuplasty. The procedure was easier than getting cavities filled at a dentist office. Slight to no pain at all!. He is the only doctor to do blood test for immune deficiency and with the results I now get allergy injections. Post surgery for several months now and elated with the results.
in Barnhart, MO |
Dr. Gould performed the balloon sinus dilation procedure on me two years ago and it was very successful at stopping my constant sinus infections. The procedure was painless and Dr. Gould is so compassionate about not wanting me to be uncomfortable. He's excellent at listening and answering my questions. He truly cares about his patients. His staff at the Festus office is exceptional. I receive allergy shots at his office that have helped my allergies tremendously. I highly recommend Dr. Gould.
in Festus, MO |
The staff is great and friendly they are quick to learn you by name. Everyone there works as a team and sees you as a patient (friend) not a number. They are easy to get in for an emergency and their schedule is very convenient.
