I have been Dr. G's patient since February of 1999, when I moved to this area and had to go straight to the hospital for observation for pre-eclampsia. I had not yet had my first visit with her, but the on-call doctor called her, since he "wouldn't touch me" with my BP of 220/200. She turned her car around from heading out on vacation and I have loved her ever since. She is very honest, thorough, and direct -- no sugar-coating of anything here. She is very supportive of her patient's desires, many times to the nurses' chagrin, if you're in the hospital. I absolutely feel she saved the life of me and my first baby, and she delivered my next two as well, all via c-section. Any medical professional who has seen my scar remarks on how "beautiful" it is. She sat with me and cried after one of my miscarriages, and she would sit behind me in church, entertaining my toddler(s). Since I have history of rapid, easy recovery post-surgery, she allowed me to go home 22 hours after my TAH, with a follow-up one week later at her office, and a scheduled follow-up at 10 weeks post-op. I could not love this doctor more, and will absolutely have some emotional issues when she retires. I cannot ever imagine trusting or forming such a strong bond with another doctor.
