I went to Dr. Gumbs because a friend of mine spoke very highly of her. I may have caught her on an off day, but she was incredibly short with me and I felt very rushed through my first appointment withher. It was hard not to take it personal when I overheard how friendly she was with other patients. Hopefully my next visit will be better.

She made me feel very comfortable. Which was important because I was having my first child. Her staff is very friendly. She also took the time to talk about my birthing plan and the options available.

If you want to be treated like a human being by a doctor who actually respects and cares about you- go to Dr. Gumbs.

Dr Gumbs was very nice although the office was slow/behind. The other staff were friendly. Parking wasn't hard except it's metered and I was worried I was going to run out of time.

As far as I can tell, Dr. Joslyn was excellent! She definitely explained things well and made me reassured that I'm gonna be fine. She made me more comfortable knowing that what I was freaking out about actually shouldn't be serious.

The office didn't seem very clean, it was a little dingy and she was rushing out for an emergency so my time was cut short. I ended up finding another doctor.

Every professional but a tad too detached for my liking. I want a doctor who cares about me even on my first meeting. Found that elsewhere but she was good.

I absolutely loved the doctor. Very efficient and easy to talk to. Ready to address any concerns I had and was very helpful. I waited for 45 minutes before I was seen, however I believe that is because she works atthe hospital when she is not seeing patients. Understandable, if a little frustrating. Other than that, I will be back absolutely.

Joslyn Gumbs was very nice and made me feel completely comfortable during my visit with her. I did however, wait an entire hour after my scheduled appointment and the staff was rude and did not even make an attempt to accommodateme when I asked for the status of my appointment and why it was taking so long.

Dr. Joslyn was extremely kind and patient with me. I had quite a few questions I needed to have addressed, as I was new in town and wanted to explore a few options. She never made me feel rushed, even thoughshe was running late. My only qualms were with reception and my intake. The receptionist insisted that my copay was something different that it was until I had to point out the details on my insurance card, to avoid being charged more. Beyond that, Dr. Gumbs has my seal of approval!

Dr. Gumbs was AMAZING! She's kind, caring, compassionate yet VERY knowledgeable and informative. I finally understand my medical issues and why I feel or experience what I do after over 7 years of dealing with endometriosis. I'd never recommend seeing anyone else. :)

I think she is great, we did have to wait about an hour to see her but as soon as we did she was very nice and informative. I am 35 weeks pregnant and new to her office, she made mefeel welcomed and didn't rush us off like a lot of Dr's do at times. Clean office as well.

My wait to be seen was longer than I had anticipated (and I was irritated), but as soon as Joslyn walked in, she apologized and explained that she'd had an emergency situation at the hospital and that my wait time wasnot the norm. As for my treatment, Joslyn was very patient and very kind. I had a short list of concerns that I needed to discuss with her and she patiently and thoroughly answered each question that I had. Even though she was backed up with patients, she never made me feel rushed. She was very attentive and even noted that the room was chilly, so she had the heat turned on for me before I changed into my exam gown. I also loved that she (or an assistant) called in my prescription for me, saving me a step at the pharmacy. My prescription was filled and ready for me to pickup within an hour of me leaving her office. I will definitely be returning to her in the future.
