Dr. Elizabeth Gould, MD

Dermatologist

Professional statement

I grew up in the Bay Area. I majored in English Literature at Brown University, and then attended medical school at SUNY Downstate in New York. After completing a medical residency at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, I received my Board Certification in Internal Medicine. I then completed Dermatology training at Stanford. While now focusing my practice on dermatology, my medicine training gives me a foundation of medical knowledge on which I draw every day. I'm sure I was influenced to consider dermatology because of my father's enthusiasm for his career, and now working together is a gift. I very much enjoy all aspects of dermatology. I particularly like seeing people of different ages, from new babies to patients with 100 years of life experience. In addition to the interesting medical challenges, I cherish the relationships with my patients and our ongoing conversations.

Not a warm person, more wanted things done. My old dermatologist was warmer and more service oriented. Here I got a paper of medical codes to call my insurance company if it’s covered. My old helped with that without me asking.

I appreciate Dr. Gould. She was professional and even tempered, though I’m not sure she was really looking out for me or going the extra mile. Still, I found her solid and would consider seeing her for future appointments. Watch outfor the receptionists, though. Some are kind while others can be cold!

While Dr. Gould was fine, I was told my prescription would be called into the CVS the day of my appointment at 5. 3 days later I call the office because I hadn't heard from the pharmacy saying the prescription wasfilled. I was told the doctor never filled in the rest of her notes, they have no idea what my prescription was even supposed to be, and don't know whether it was called in or not. I didn't hear one apology or "I'm sorry."

Dr. Gould is great. I've been coming to this office for years and rarely have to wait more than a few minutes to be seen. She's easy to talk to and friendly and responsive to my individual needs. Services seem pricedfairly and she's conscientious about advising me of charges not covered by insurance. I liked her so much I brought my son to see her too. Her rapport with people of all ages (she also saw my grandmother) is excellent. I'm confident we're receiving the highest quality treatment.

Went to visit to treat my adult acne. She heard what I had to say about my experience with previous treatments, took that into account, and then created a treatment plan that seems to be working great after a month anda half! She is pretty friendly and seemed knowledgeable and thorough. She also remembered my first visit when I came back for a follow up. I am happy with the visit.

She is always professional, kind, and thorough--she doesn't miss anything in the "skin check" and makes complete notes. Her office staff is equally efficient and pleasant.

I am in my 20's with Acne. I relocated to the bay area and had to find a new dermatologist. I was appalled that Dr. Gould spent less than 10 minutes with me as a new patient. Said, "I'll send insome prescriptions for you but you'll have to figure out whats best." She handed me a bag full of samples with no explanation and sent me on my way. She had no advice or any insight to offer or even a PLAN besides, "try it all and see what works." I've been going to the dermatologist since I was 13, she is by far my worst experience.

She is terrific, as is her father William Gould, MD. I have been a patient with the group for several years and always are treated very well. My wife is also her patient. Cannot recommend the whole group too highly.
