Ratings for Dr. Gary L. Lovell
The worst doctor I've ever been to. Dr. Lovell has been a gynecologist too long. I think he hates women. He has an arrogant attitude and thinks he has all the power. Very unprofessional, rude, condescending, and just a jerk. I think he should retire.
I really can't believe it! Never in my life have I been felt so harassed and embarrassed. In May 2015 I was expecting my 5th child ... so I set up an appointment. I have used Seasons before but never with Dr. Lovell. As I visited the office everything was going great. I had an ultrasound and did my labs. After waiting about 5 min Dr. Lovell walked in and that is when it fell apart. He instantly ridiculed me about some of my responses on my information sheet. He told me that I was irresponsible for having 2 of my 4 children at home. He then informed me that he was refusing all future services because "I was too much of a liability to him and his organization." At this moment I was horrified ... I didn't really know what to do or say. But to top it all off ... he then smirked at me and sarcastically said "I hope you don't have any complications with this pregnancy ... good bye!" I was so confused and horrified! I was just left there. I didn't even know how to get out of the building. The funny thing is that they still sent a bill! If you like being harassed, manipulated, and embarrassed Dr.Lovell is right for you.
Dr. Lovell saved my life. He comforted me when I was in need, and told me what I needed to know as gently as possible. He made time for me while I was in the midst of an emotional breakdown although he was already book, and not once did I feel rushed. I will forever be greatful for this man. I love him as a Doctor and a person.
I was afraid he would be on call when I was to deliver....and he was on call that day...I am so happy it was him. Quit, professional, caring. I never had an appointment with him throughout the pregnancy and I regret that I didn't. He understands that a first-time delivery is especially emotional event and he does not annoyingly babble in front of you. I almost felt like he was not there, but at the same time everything was taken care of. He came back to check on me the next day and I felt that he really cared about me. Episiotomy was done great. The only minus was that I had to wait for him to do my last push, but really I had a great experience.
He wasn't my first choice to deliver my baby based off what I'd heard about him, but I also didn't get a choice in the matter. He happened to be on-call. The experience was much better than I'd anticipated. I pushed my baby for over an hour, but she was stuck under my pubic bone and not coming out. I think by then any other ob/gyn would be preparing me for a c-section, but Dr. Lovell didn't even mention it. He assisted my delivery with a vacuum and episiotomy and remained calm the entire time. I thought all of these things would be crazy painful, but honestly they weren't. He is very skilled. I had a great recovery; hardly any pain regardless of the episiotomy. I got a little going-through-the-motions vibe from him, but he let me deliver vaginally and I was grateful for that. Too many ob/gyns these days rush c-sections. Dr. Lovell doesn't seem to be one of them.
I had to have a D&C performed. Dr. Lovell totally botched it. I ended up in the ER where they said that I had a "ton" of tissue left in me and asked, "Who did this to you?" And I had another D&C. I called Dr. Lovell personally and told him of my situation. I offered to let him keep the insurance's portion of the bill, but I wanted my portion refunded since I had to pay for an ER visit and for another D&C because he didn't do his job right the first time. He denied that he did anything wrong and said, "There's always a little bit of tissue left after a D&C." He didn't take responsibility for anything and refused to refund any money. Later on, I got yet another bill for $10 from the clinic (not sure what it was for) after already paying out the wazoo for my botched operation. I talked to billing and asked them to write it off because of what I went through. They wouldn't even write off a measly $10. I will NEVER go back to this office.
I personally have enjoyed Dr. Lovell as my OBGYN. He was very helpful and answered all my questions, very straight and to the point, no beating around the bush. I haven't delivered yet (4 more weeks), but so far for all of my prenatal care he's been great.
Great doctor! I've had 5 babies using this doctor and he's always been great. The staff is amazing and works hard to know all their patients by name and face. As with alot of doctors, the office sometimes runs behind schedule, but it's not usually too long of a wait. I've been really grateful for such a great doctor.
