Ratings for Dr. Lisa A. Gorsuch
As noted she doesn't always have the best "beside manner" but who cares she knows her stuff! She listened to my needs before surgery and really took that into account during surgery and also called me twice the next day to check on my recovery.
Awesome doctor, super straightforward and knowledgeable. Nurse assistant was great too. Checkout person super friendly. Downstairs checkin lady was rude. Maybe don't accuse patients of cutting in line when they're trying to figure out if there is a line and where it is. Other than that issue, great experience.
Dr. Gorsuch just so happened to be the MD on call the night my daughter decided to make her debut. She wasn't the physician I had hoped for due to the reviews I saw on here and other places but In the Heat of the moment I really didn't care about her personality or peoples skills, all I wanted was for her to deliver a healthy baby. To my surprise she was a pleasant women, very straight to the point but also laughs and makes jokes. My labor ended up being 14 hrs long and as a nurse (which she didn't know) I felt she really did her job well and based the progression of the labor off my wishes and desires. She came in the room several times to check the progression of the labor, I never felt like she was taking her time. When it came time to push I was pushing for 40min with minimal progress. The baby's heart rate stared to drop below 60 , naturally I paniced because I was already exhausted and that was not the news I wanted to hear. They called her in due to the HR dropping and she came right away. Her coaching during the pushing process was awesome, 20 minutes later the baby was out. She did everything she could to make sure the baby was healthy and in good hands and she stayed longer to congratulate us. She is very matter of fact which didn't bother me at all, to some it possibly could. I went to her for my 6 week check up. She was on time. Listened to and addresses all my concerns and apparently did a good job on the stitches because they healed nicely. I definitely had a good experience with her all in all.
The doc felt my ovaries to make sure they weren't swollen, and didn't happen to notice a 24 cm cyst. We found the cyst in the ER about a month after my last visit to Dr. Gorsuch. I've been trying to get pregnant for 3 years, we conceived 6 weeks after the cyst was removed. Not a fan.
Dr. Gorsuch was the dr on call when I went into early delivery (26 weeks) of my twins in 1998. She ignored pages and did not show up until it was too late to stop labor. She had me sign a consent to deliver and her bedside manner was awful. She did not come see me after delivery and avoided my husband in the waiting room. No thanks to her, my girls are perfectly healthy but if she had been a decent doctor, labor may have been delayed and my girls wouldn't have had to spend 11 weeks in the NICU.
I found out I have endometriosis and have gone through a lot for the past year and a half. It's scary for me because I'm only 22. When ever I call for questions she never returns my calls. I had to have surgery and she just left after and didn't stay to tell me what they found. We asked a nurse to tell her to call me but never heard from her or check in post surgery. I'm trying to find a new doctor that will treat me like they actually care not just for the money. I don't recommend her at all!
I have seen Dr. Gorsuch for years. She is a friendly and nice person, but when I had problems with infertility, she should have referred me to a specialist. Instead, she put me on meds and wasted 1 1/2 years before suggesting artificial insemination with a specialist. Thankfully I asked that specialist a few questions (unfortunately after the procedure was done) and found that none of the important steps to diagnose the reason for my infertility were taken. I was preganant within 3 months of seeing Dr. Seth Ketz at Reproductive Endocrinology Associates (REACH) - he was wonderful and knowledgeable. I know this is not Dr. Gorsuch's specialty, but I depend on her recommendations as my doctor and she should have suggested a referral to a specialist instead of continuing on meds that were not working.
