Routine Pregnancy / Prenatal Appointment

Dr. Gilmer and all other OB’s and nurses are very professional while also being extremely kind and supportive. I never feel rushed at any appointment and am able to ask any and all questions that I have and I am provided clear and understandable answers every time.

Physical Exam / Check-up

Very delightful atmosphere. Doctors and staff are awesome.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Always pleased with Dr. Gilmer and staff.

Gynecological Problem Visit

Dr. Gilmer was very helpful- I appreciated her willingness and time, as she answered my immediate questions. I do have additional questions and will call to schedule an appt or speak to a nurse. The front desk staff has not been pleasant, and I’ve been very underwhelmed with their assistance. The contacts I’ve spoken to could not figure out what to schedule for even when consulting my chart, did not call back when we were disconnected and put me on elongated holds numerous times to the point where I had to explain to multiple people within each phone call why I was calling. The providers are as tremendous as the front desk staff is unhelpful and often cold- I recall this being my experience in the past.

Dr. Gilmer is always warm and down to earth. She’s easy to talk to which makes it easy to be honest about whatever health issues I need to discuss with her.

Annual Well Woman Exam

Nurse came in initially (which I’m used to), then med student came in asking the same questions, then Dr came in with med student asking the same questions, then nurse came back in with a 2nd nurse during the exam. I guess she was a student too? I don’t even know. They never told me why so many were in there!! This was a normal pelvic and breast exam. Nothing crazy or unusual. 4 people were in the room!! During my breast exam, the Dr was on one side and the med student on the other at the same time?! So awkward! I was never asked if this was ok. It was just assumed. I also have an issue having to tell 4 people what I wanted to talk to just my Dr about. I only see her once a year and really don’t like that I’m asked if I have questions or concerns from the nurse prior as well as the med student and then the Dr! I had 4 women in there listening to what I just wanted my drs opinion on!

This office provides a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere, from the first point of contact by the personnel at check-in, to the medical assistants and certainly Dr. Gilmer. The professionalism, skill, and efficiency of my annual visits are unsurpassed by any other healthcare specialist I see. Questions and issues are addressed throughly and, unlike my experience at other medical offices, I have never felt as though I were being rushed. An outstanding practice in every way!
