Professional Statement

I grew up in New York, went to Dartmouth College and then to medical school at Yale, and had my internship in internal medicine in New York. In addition to residency years in Boston and at Stanford, I served two years in the USAF Medical Corps, and I have also worked as a volunteer dermatologist in Honduras, Guatemala, Botswana, and Thailand.
People often ask why I became a dermatologist. I certainly had some excellent role models and mentors when I was a young physician, and I feel immensely grateful for their guidance and instruction. The scientific part of dermatology steadily advances, and it is a continuing source of interest and stimulation for me, but it is the daily challenge in the care of the individual patient that gives me the greatest pleasure and satisfaction. I am enormously privileged to be a physician.

Dr. Gould was very nice as were the receptionists. He did a thorough job examining me and paid extra attention to a spot I mentioned. The parking was somewhat limited and I am used to dermatologists using a dermascope, but he probably just didn't see anything worth getting up close and personal with

The wait time was too much. I went there 15 min before my appointment start time and got to meet the doctor about 35 min post my appointment start time.

After an insanely frustrating time communicating with his office leading up to my appointment, my 30 minutes with Dr. Gould in person were excellent. Not only was he extremely friendly and personable, but also made sure to provide thoughtful feedback on several different issues I was experiencing. Rather than just walking out as soon as he determined I was fine, he stood by and asked if there was anything else I was having trouble with or if I had any questions. I would highly recommend him as a thoughtful, caring, and smart dermatologist. Just be aware - dealing with his office is semi-miserable..

Very professional and personable. He is concerned about each patient and it shows by his complete presence in the room. Very knowledgeable and realistic in his treatments. Would recommend him even after one visit.

Suggest changing question #2 from "...professional's bedside manner?" to "...professional's office manner - or consultation manner" This is not bedside manner. I chose not to answer, but your system will not allow my review to go through. So my rating is based on the comments above.

Dr. Bill Gould was very easy to talk to and understand, most importantly, he listened intently to my concerns. I read their reviews on Yelp and they were spot on. The front desk was friendly and I was seen within 5 minutes of checking in. Dr. Gould encouraged me to give him a call back and update him on how things are improving or not, even if I don't feel I need to set up another appointment. I appreciate his follow-up and concern on my progress. Thank you!

I actually showed up about 15 minutes early to my appointment and expected to wait for a while, but they got me into my appointment within 3-4 minutes (so my wait time was actually negative 10 minutes from my scheduled time. Dr. Gould was very knowledgeable and explained everything to me in terms that I understood. I highly recommend.

There was no waiting time and I was given a prescription on my first appointment. It's also really handy that there's a big parking lot right outside where you can park for two hours for free. Very good experience.

We ended up seeing Elizabeth Gould by our request because we had seen her before and her other appointment was late. We would reccommend her to anyone.
