Dr. Gibbs had consistently help me control psoriasis for many, many years. I believe in him! Cravin Turnage

I agree that he is very rude, but his products works well. Been going to him for years and he has always been the same , not a people person at all. I only go for his PSG products and recently went by to purchase some and the doors were closed. HE CLINIC IS SHUT DOWN! without any warning or notice to his patients. WOW!!

I had red painful bumps , many of them under both arm pits. My pcp thought they were boils, after he treated me and they kept popping up, he referred me to Dr. Gibbs. Dr. Gibbs upon looking at these bumps immediately knew what they were and prescribed the correct treatment. It was expensive but got the job done.In 3 days they started to disappear.My hat off to Dr. Gibbs and his staff, oh no long wait time either. Thanks so much. Recommendation is a 10

Dr Gibbs was very professional - too professional. No bedside manner. I got the impression that he did not want to listen to me and was in a hurry to leave the room after a few minutes of his diagnosis. He told me what I had been doing without listening to what I HAD been doing.

He is extremely quiet, which is never good for any type of doctor. I recently went in because I had a problem with my eczema and I told him of the cream I had been using that works GREAT for me, but I recently ran out and needed him to prescribe me the cream again. However, he decided that another EXPENSIVE cream would work better against my wishes. And after I paid and used the cream he prescribed, it did NOTHING. I am extremely disappointed and will not be returning.
