Dr. Gilbert had great information and answered all my questions thoroughly. That being said, he was condescending, correctedme on my grammar, and as the appointment progressed, I had to force myself to persevere in asking my questions despite feeling uncomfortable speaking with him. I do believe it was a satisfactory appointment in that my problem was attentively assessed and I got the information I was looking for but I would hesitate to return to Dr. Gilbert based on his patronizing bedside manner.
