Ratings for Dr. Lisa Gough
Dr Gough has been my family's GP since 99'. I think she is great! She has a kind and caring bedside manner. I appreciate that she doesn't rely on (what can quickly become old thought in the medical world) but she researches modern technologies. I do not like the two hour lunch break the staff take from the phones.
Dr Gough has been our family doctor for 12 years and we've found her to be patient, kind and takes the time to address our concerns and health issues. She's very thorough and we appreciate that she refers us to specialists when she deems it necessary in order to make an informed diagnosis. Better to be safe than sorry. We appreciate Dr Gough and her staff.
I have had Dr. Gough for the last 10 years now as my family doctor, and have found her to be very easy to confide in, very gentle, listens fully to my concerns, and is very willing for me to be a partner in my own health care. I have found her to be quite knowledgeable, ( or willing to find something out for me), and I particularly like that she will define and then put forward several options on an issue, along with a discussion of the pros and cons of each approach, and then presents her advice, rather than just assigning you with a treatment or prescription or sending you off to see someone else. She has never had the arrogance that I have found in other individuals who think they know automatically what is best for you, and whisk you out of the office as fast as possible. The only difficulty I have had is getting an appointment with her right away, or sometimes having an appointment changed because of her dedication to her maternity patients and their unpredictability...and I cant really fault her for that! I love her, and have many friends who have asked if she would be taking any new patients.
Lisa Gough is great when it comes to dealing with children or pregnancy.. As for being a GP, her abilities and knowledge definitely fall short, she was my family doctor for the past 15ish years and never have i been more disappointed in the care i received.. She had little to no knowledge on the issues my family and I were having, and often dismissed what we had to say
Dr. Gough is overly cautious to the point where she has no opinion of her own. She constantly refers you to other specialists - even for simple things - who roll their eyes at the fact that you were referred in the first place. I found this a waste of my time. And if she has any serious concerns she will not tell you directly but rather offer vague advice, then go behind your back to the authorities. I am posting this so that others are aware of this and are not shocked by this behaviour. I think her lack of certainty/confidence(?) causes her to behave in irrational ways. This is rather unfortunate as she otherwise comes across as someone who cares.
