Dr.Gilbert is a good professional. He speaks less and leave it to the assistant. Staff is okay. This was pre surgery appointment. What is important is the outcome of the surgery. We will find out next.

The other staff at this office were friendly and took good care of me. Dr. Gilbert on the other hand was rushed and unpleasant. My appointment was at 10:00 and I didn't see him until after 11:00 and then he rushes in and rushes back out. I felt he was rude and I will not be returning.

Hard to Review off of a first visit because I expect them to be at their best then. However, they were all very nice and asked and addresses issues previous doctors and eye doctors have in the past. I have to go back for a follow up in 6 months. Will give feedback again.

Have been been using Dr. Gilbert for years. He has a very professional staff and the office seems to run smoothly . . . once you have been called back to the examining rooms! A 50 minute wait time when you have a specific appointment is highly irritating. But it seems to happen with every visit. They should definitely spread out their appts OR at least tell you when the Dr. is running late.

It was frustrating to wait so long for less than a total of 15 minutes. I was there 2 hours! I saw Dr. Gilbert fpr 2 to 3 minutes max and a technician for maybe 10 minutes. I am pleased with my cataract surgery. I was very impressed that Dr. Gilbert called me personally later that evening to see how I was doing.

He doesn't talk to patients and doesn't speak clearly and it makes us hesitate to ask him a question. I never felt he is kind. We had to wait for 1hr to see doctor after all the test. It took us to finish all the visit almost 3hrs.

For a 9:30 AM appointment I arrived at 9:20 AM to check in. During the next 1-1/2 hours I spent 5 minutes with a tech to check my vision with an eye chart and check the pressure in my eyes. Finally after 1-1/2 hours I spent about 5 minutes with Dr. Gilbert and he checked the eye pressure and said to come back in 30 days and if the pressure was still up he would do a procedure to correct it. I typically expect to spend 1-1/2 to 2 hours for every appointment I have with Gilbert. Seems they should reconsider there appointment scheduling to make sure patient do not have to spend the amount of time we do for an appointment.
