Dr. Gillian Graves's Ratings
I was referred to Dr. Graves after my first OB/GYN had went away for the last month of my pregnancy. I am so happy that I was referred to her, I loved her a lot more than I did my first doctor and was so thankful to have her! Even though I only had seen her for a month (and for my 6 week check up) . She was amazing, calm, made me feel relaxed all the time and she certanitly has a sense of humor which always helps with making people feel more relaxed. I love her - I certanitly would go to her again for another pregnancy and I would recommend her to anyone!
I have been extremely fortunate to have been a patient of Dr. Graves for over 25 years. She is knowledgable and professional yet presents with an easy, friendly and relaxed approach. She is simply the best! Thanks Dr. Graves!
Amazing, amazing person. Dr. Graves is everything a doctor should be. She is funny, down to earth, caring, understanding, respectful, supportive, effective and very knowledgable. I have been to a lot of gynos for endometriosis and she is the best ever. She was exactly what i needed at a very crucial time. If you have endo and are looking for a good doctor she is well worth the wait!
Amazing woman. Was recommended to see her when I was 16 and just recently diagnosed with MRKH (Mayer Rockitansky Kuster Hauser) syndrome, in which I was born without a uterus, cervix, and the upper 2/3 of my vagina. She was recommended after my first gynecologist was extremely rude and unprofessional about my diagnosis, stating I was abnormal and bluntly stating that we best look into adoptions as there was no hope for us. After seeing Dr Graves for the first and second and third and fourth times, etc, she reassured us that with current technology it is not only very possible, it is also very likely we will be able to have biological children through in-vitro fertilization and having a gestational surrogate. She explained everything to us and lets my fiance come along to all appointments and helps him understand everything as well. I see her yearly and look forward to discussing further child options when I see her again!
I have seen Dr. Graves 4 times. I am not her typical patient- that is, I am not there to receive help with fertility, I am there to address endometriosis pain. While Dr. Graves does appear to be knowledgeable and an expert in her area, her bedside manners and tendency to interject her own personal (and not professional) opinion, left me with not wanting to see her again [not to mention the 2 hour wait]. As a single young woman who works hard on her career, I felt put down by Dr. Graves for not wanting children right away or making myself fit for a man. I understand that asking a patient to lose 5-7lbs may be difficult, but framing it in a professional and appropriate manner is not hard. She needs to move away from the misogynistic views of what women should want, and accept that some of her patients may not appreciate being told to put their careers away in order to find a man and have children. Be more professional and respect your patients.
A Incredible doctor. I was with her with my first pregnancy and now my second. She is amazing, great bedside manner, and always explains everything in great detail. I was referred to her by my family doctor and I am so happy that I was. I am overweight and was very nervous about being pregnant and gaining weight. She is so understanding and not judgmental at all unlike other doctors I have seen. She makes me feel comfortable and she is a doctor I feel I can really trust. I would recommend her a million times over!
Dr.Graves is an amazing dr,although i was unable to conceive any children,she was there to help me through my pcos.she preformed my hysterectomy and did a great job.i felt almost no pain after waking and now feel better then ever.she is very attentive and definately knows what she is doing.she explained things in ways we could understand and even added a little humor.made me feel completly comfortable.i only wish she could always be the one to preform any surgery i may need.i was surprised she would call me on weekends or after their normal hours to inform me on anything.i still continue to see her for issues with pcos.
Dr. Graves is one of the most professional doctors I have ever encountered. My husband and I were so at ease with her and she definately knows her stuff. I feel very comfortable with her and she makes me feel at ease, both in the OR and her office.
Gillian Graves is brilliant and an amazing doctor. She saw me through major surgery last year, infertility issues and now my first pregnancy. She is excellent at what she does. She always calls me back for even minor things on evenings & weekends--no matter how busy she is. She's always answered my questions, explained things to me and reassured my concerns. She does speak in lay terms, but in her defense when I demonstrated I didn't need that, she dropped it and spoke with me on my level. She can be late for appointments. That's because she's a surgeon and I don't expect an apology for it. She is attentive, compassionate and has a great sense of humour (very dry but funny as hell). I trust her a great deal and rest easy knowing she'll be looking after my pregnancy and doing my c section. My husband likes her and I simply love her.
