I have seen Dr. "G" for a few years. Always found him to be knowledgeable, compassionate, gentle and understanding. Recently, however I placed a new and special pen w/some papers on the counter in rm during exam. A staff person took my pen! I did not say anything. That is a bad sign but no reflection on him. I have moved away so will be going to a new doctor near my home but have great respect for him. Sounds corny but when he enters the room there is the sense of the luminosity that occurs when a good soul is present. My sympathies to anyone with United Healthcare!
Perfect Dr. the only tiny criticism is he used a midline incision instead of a mediolateral incision, but he may have had a good reason other than it is old school, I did not ask. "In cases where an episiotomy is indicated, a mediolateral incision may be preferable to a median (midline) incision as the latter is associated with a higher risk of injury to the anal sphincter and the rectum" from Wikipedia
Dr. Gurwitt and staff are the best! When I had a miscarriage, he was so sweet and wonderful, even called me at home!! During my next pregnancy he was more than cautious! I delivered a VERY healthy 8 lb 2 oz girl!! His staff ALWAYS made me feel like I was their favorit patient! All of the kindness and patience I felt from them was unbelievable! I wouldn't use anyone else!!
No bed-side manner in that Dr. made me feel like a number not a person. It was as though he was ready to retire and didn't care if I came back. This yearly appt, my first time with Dr. Gurwitt, was not thorough and left me with the impression of slam, bam, thank you mam. The questions I asked about menopause, etc. were never answered.
DR GURWITT IS THE ABSOLUTE BEST OB/GYN!! HE DELIVERED MY BABY IN SEPTEMBER 2007 AND I COULDNT ASK FOR A BETTER DOCTOR. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH I COULD SAY ABOUT HIM!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR GURWITT AND HATS OFF TO STELLA FOR RUNNING SUCH A GREAT OFFICE! ALLISON PD
What an awesome Doc! He delivered my daughter back in 2003 and had very excellent bedside manners. I hihgly recommend........... My previous female Doc who delivered my son in 2000 was a horrible Doc. Dr. Gurwitt is very attentive and takes the time to ask questions. Yes, he is getting older but, I see it as more experience rather than ready to retire.........
