This was my first visit. Dr Gibson and her staff are awesome! She was so friendly, really informative and listened to all my frustrations with my thyroid and all my crummy symptoms. She is open minded and I get the feelingshe really wants the best for her patients. She made me feel like there is some hope that I will feel better, regrow my hair and hopefully lose these extra lbs. I think I made the right decision going to her and I am hopeful for the future.

Being recently diagnosed with diabetes and being put on insulin when in the hospital, I researched every endocrinologist on my insurance plan. The reviews that Dr. Gibson received from those who have seen her were outstanding. The only 5 starendocrinologist...and I can see why. She was patient, did not rush through explaining everything I needed to know, answered every question, has a wonderful, friendly staff, offers free diabetes education, and by making my appointment on Zocdoc I was able to get in the very next day.

This was my first experience using ZocDoc. I had originally called the office for an appointment and was told she had no availability for a couple of months. I went onto my AvMed website to see what other Endo doctors wereon my plan and came across the ZocDoc and saw that there was an opening to see her that very same day. I of course, booked it and was able to get in to see her. However, I was told by the front desk that my appointment would be limited to 15 minutes. This however wasn't the case, She spent over a half hr with me, was extremely nice, took her time in going over everything with me, was very informative, pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend her!

I went for menopausal hormone eval. She basically did blood work and had her nurse leave me a message that all was "fine". Wait until she experiences menopause, she will have a new definition of "Fine", I am sure. Never hadme come back in to discuss results. I called back to say I was still having symptoms. Never contacted me to address my issues. This doctor may be okay for people with diabetes, but don't waste your time if you have hormone issues. She couldn't be bothered. Even if you can't help someone, at least follow up and let them know. Felt blown off... Office staff is very courteous...

I am so disappointed in my experience with at Sonia Gibson's office. First of all, the day I went to the office, the computer systems were down so I had to tell the staff my Name, Height, Weight (without them measuring)and they wrote it down on a blank sheet of white printer paper. I then met with the doctor and discussed my symptoms; she was very nice and suggested I get some blood work so we can begin the process of understanding what might be wrong. She mentioned that once I got my blood work results, the office would be in touch with me within 1 to 2 weeks to discuss next steps. Immediately after my appointment, I went to the lab to get my blood work. Three weeks after my appointment, I called the office to see if they received my lab work; i was forwarded to the medical staff's voicemail service: no response. A week or two later, I call again, and again, I reach voicemail and get no response. I wait yet another week and finally get in touch with someone, they say yes, they've received my results and that they needed the doctor to take a look and they would call me back in 5 minutes - guess what comes next, no call back. I finally wait one more week as at this point, I assume nothing is wrong since I'm not getting a call back but thinking I would like a second opinion. I call the office again, again I am sent to the voicemail service, but this time, I leave a very blunt message demanding my results so I can share with a doctor that actually cares about my health. Finally, on this day, I receive a call back from the office but I was in a meeting so they left a voicemail. The voicemail I received is a concerned message that they do in fact think I may have an issue and informing me that I need to get further testing completed ASAP....ASAP...6 weeks later? The only positive thing I can say at this point is that the office did mail me my lab results (the lab results they received dated a week or two of after my appointment). At this point, I of course did not go back to Sonia Gibson's office and went to another doctor for a second opinion and treatment. The funniest part of the experience is that I was charged a hefty bill for my visit. I called the doctors office a few times to dispute the charge and discuss my experience but, as I'm sure you can guess, I never did get a call back. What I did get was a notice that my unpaid bill was sent to collections...ridiculous. Unfortunately, a doctor is only as good as their staff, and this office is unorganized and does not care for their patients. I definitely do not recommend Sonia Gibson - find an office that will care about you.
