Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Dr Gathers is amazing! I am due in December so my husband and I get to see her at least once a month, now once a week. We walk in and are treated like family. The front staff and nurses are all amazing. Dr Gathers or her nurse always go over any questions I have and I leave feeling prepared to have this baby. They always inform me of my decisions and options but have never pushed me into anything. She is very professional but still personable and understanding. Every visit I feel like I am the only patient she has that day. She walks in with a smile and gives us all the time we need.

Dr. Gathers appeared scattered and rushed at appointments discussing my care and many times made comments leading me to believe she was confusing me with other patients. I have no confidence in the care that was provided to me and regret not requesting a replacement OB. I also found her to be condescending when I asked questions. I do not recommend her.

I was happy to finally find a doctor that is professional, caring and compassionate. I dread going to the gynecologist because it always seems so cold, however when she enters the room she is so upbeat and has the biggest smile. She has always been very patient and never makes me feel like she is rushed with my OB appointments. Dr. Gathers is awesome! I've referred her to my family and friends.

Dr. Gathers was wonderful! It was a little difficult changing from the GYN doctor that I had for about 20 years to someone new and Dr. Gathers made it so easy! She is very kind and easy to talk to. I feel that she truly cared about any questions or concerns that I had and she took as much time as I needed without me feeling rushed. I truly appreciated her time and caring and making this transition so smooth. Thank you!

Dr. Gathers is personable and informative. She was able to explain various medical options that where available to me in a way that made sense to me; even though I am not a medical professional. I appreciate her helping me make informed decisions about my medical care. She spent time with me during my appointment and didn't make me feel rushed.
