Office door was locked with no cars around building. I waited for 15 minutes in front of office, no one answered. Called office several times; phone was not answered. I wasted 2.5 hours transit and waiting to be accused of lying by the doctor when she returned my calls the next day. don’t know if doctor is untrustworthy, unable to manage practice, or as it appears... Both! I will not be rescheduling!

This woman has no business in the psychiatry field. She doesn't even spend 2 minutes a day with her patients and wont return phone calls. Her own staff said it was almost impossible to speak with her. All she is interested in is medicating and money.

By far the worst experience I have ever had with any medical professional. She is extremely rude, offered no help other then directing to take my 4 year old to inpatient, and would literally chastise me for the appointment time set up by the front desk (not once but twice). She misdiagnosed and my child had a horrible reaction to the prescribed drugs and only advice was to take to the Ridge. We saw her 3 times and each time only got worst. Highly recommend anyone to steer clear of this provider

Dr. Gilbert misdiagnosed me in an inpatient setting multiple times which left me coming back to the hospital many times and staying for a longer amount of time. When we presented the idea of bipolar disorder to her she shut it down immediately and continued to treat me the wrong way. I am bipolar and if she had listened it would have saved me a year of my life. Dr. Gilbert would tell me that I was just not trying hard enough and that there was nothing she could do if I didn't try

I would never recommend Dr. Gilbert to anyone. You would think a pediatric doctor would be friendly due to the fact they work with children all day, but that is not the case for Gilbert. She does not pick up her phone 80% of the time and will not return your phone call when you leave a voicemail. After I spent roughly a month trying to contact her she finally returned my call but hung up the phone before I could tell her why I was calling.
