I adore Dr Gilmer and the whole Laurel OBGYN practice. I always feel so comfortable and really listened to, and you can tell how much the whole team cares about patient wellness.

Annual Well Woman Exam

The worst experience with a doctor I have ever had. Her unprofessionalism is beyond believable. She is not a surgeon and started stating which of my organs “we” are leaving and which we are removing. This was without any ct-scan or biopsy. 1950’s gynecologist

Annual Well Woman Exam

Dr. Gilmer is so kind and straightforward. I feel like I can talk to her about vulnerable things without judgement and get a straight answer.

Post-Partum Appointment

I came in with a clear description and timeline of my recent experiences with pain, as well as information received from other providers about why I had been referred to follow up with OB/Gyn. I felt like my pain was immediately dismissed as "not an OB/Gyn problem" just because I stated that it's partially in my back, even though I brought up the potential of referral pain. I described other symptoms like menstrual cramping and discharge, but again was dismissed. The response was just "I've never heard of that" instead of curiosity or saying she'd ask around/look into it. Without even completing the pelvic exam yet, much less any other diagnostic screening like an ultrasound, she offered birth control when that was not at all related to the reason for my visit.
