I last saw Dr. Should in 2010 for abdominal surgery. Because I have MRSA, he was especially watchful over my post-surgical recovery. He always took time to explain my progress & answer questions. When I was finally sent to learn how to perform my own wound care, he continued to see me to insure I continued to do well. He didn't release me from his care until the wound had completely healed. He's very caring & has a great "bedside" manner!!!

I had high hope for help from Dr. Gould. I have had continuous pain for months, and was referred to him for help. Dr Gould was only interested in ensuring that I knew he would not prescribe pain medication, and I would just have to live with the pain. SInce the problem didn't appear to have a surgical solution, he spent about 45 seconds examining me, and the rest of the visit lecturing me about how I would just have to live with the pain and lack of sleep. I left in tears, totally crushed.
