Ratings for Dr. Lucy P. Gade
Despite some efficiency issues with the front office staff, Dr. Gade is a caring, kind, patient and wonderful doctor. I would (and have) recommended her to colleagues and friends, and feel very lucky to have had her as a doctor during my recent tumultuous pregnancy. She is a great choice.
I do not at all agree with the negative reviews of Dr. Gade. I have been with her for 4 years and am very pleased with her care. She has always taken time to address any concerns I have and spends as much time as I need at each appointment. I find her very knowledgeable and think she has a wonderful bedside manner. She delivered my 1st baby 2 years ago and was knowledgable and reassuring at every step of my pregnancy. I am currently at the end of my second pregnancy and have had an equally good experience with Dr. Gade through this one. I hope she delivers me again because I am very cmfortable with her.
I too had to see Dr. Gade when my beloved Dr. Ban left her practice on maternity leave. I felt VERY uncomfortable with Dr. Gade as she was really short in her manner and just very "cold". I stuck with her though hoping that Dr. Ban would be back soon. After I went in last year for suspicious yeast infections (which she claimed I did NOT have). FINALLY after five months, i went in because I got such a bad rash down there I could hardly wear underwear becaue of the pain! She told me to use "OTC" vagisil and I "would be fine". Needless to say, I made another appt with a difft gyno who quickly gave me Diflucan and POOF my infection went away. Dr. Gade was rude and just not professional AT ALL!
I went to her in the interim because my regular gyno, Dr. Chelsea Ban, who I loved, was on maternity leave. I went to Dr. Gade with itchiness and what I though was a poss. yeast infection. This wacko Dr. Gade said she saw nothing and it was all in my head and that I should go see a sexual therapist. Good thing, I ignored her diagnosis completely and booked another appt a little late w/Dr. Ban when she was back--and she confirmed that I'd had a yeast infection and gabe me some cream. Dr. Gade should get her license revoked. Stupid woman
I was referred to Dr. Gade when my beloved OB/GYN left NYC. I made my annual appointment a little early after discovering I had a yeast infection. With Dr. Ban, my annuals were never rushed. I was in and out of Dr. Gade's office in 15 minutes FLAT. This includes a complete pap smear AND getting blood drawn. For years I was without insurance and had to go to free clinics that offered more face time with the Dr. Some people might prefer such speedy turn-around but not me. Two days after my appointment, I discovered I was FIVE WEEKS pregnant. Dr. Gade totally missed this - didn't even run a pregnancy test. Am very upset that I have to find a new gyno. I understand people are rushed, and in her defense she seemed very nice - but it's a pap smear, not a NASCAR race.
