I was recently referred to Dr. Gilbert, by my primary physician. Impressed with his background information, I made an appointment. Within a few weeks, and without any complication, my surgery was performed. I highly recommend Dr. Gilbert. From the start, I found him to be very informative, answering my questions before being asked. His demeanor was comforting, and experience in this area was immediately apparent. I was confident Dr. Gilbert was a fine choice. Turns out, I was right!
