Ratings for Dr. Pickens Gantt
I have had I find 4 times. 1 of those with dr Gantt. He is disorganized and rude. I received an incorrect prescription and it's very difficult to get in touch with anyone who can answer questions. If you live in the charleston area you should drive the extra miles to Huntington where you will be treated with respect. Cabell is leaps and bounds above this fertility center. I'd love to really sit down and do a side by side comparison. Do your research so you do not get disappointed
He does lack bedside manner. He's no nonsense and to the point. But he knows what he's doing. He will help you out at any time and always be there when you need him. His staff is wonderful. And he got me pregnant when others said it couldn't be done. So for that I'll always love him.
First off, I want to say that I started off going to a RE in Morgantown and HATED him (not going into details - that's for his review, not this one). So, after that bad experience I was warned about Dr. Gantt being somewhat...cold. However, he helped my friend get pregnant, so I was willing to give it a try. My experiences with Dr. Gantt have been nothing but pleasant. At first, I was a little nervous about him because he is quite matter-of-fact, but, turns out, that really works for me. When it comes to a topic as sensitive as "infertility" it is hard to find a good balance of compassion and action - but I've found both in Dr. Gantt. From Day 1 he created a plan on how to get me to my goal - a baby. We've stuck with that goal. As a patient, I've had to do my part - he cannot hold my hand. I'm accountable. You have to be. I've had to be responsible for injections, medications, charting, etc. But, that's what has to be done. During office visits he's very patient with me when I ask 1000 questions (and believe me, I do). I take notes. I ask the same thing 10x. I am not an easy patient. At all. I cry. I complain. I curse, at times. Now that I've been seeing him for almost a year, he has actually gotten very funny. He makes jokes with me and my husband which adds some very necessary levity, at times. He performed surgery for me in December - one that was necessary to me conceiving - and he and his staff were beyond wonderful during the pre and post op appointments - consoling me during a slight breakdown. He has made me feel hopeful on more than one occasion...and honestly, hope is the most precious component of trying to conceive. Period. No, he's not going to be everyone'e cup of tea. And that's ok.
Dr Gantt is a very smart man. At first, I would have said is bedsife manner is lacking; however, as we experienced an ectopic pregnancy, he was amazing. Fast-acting, concerned, and compassionate as I cried in his office. He is extremely busy and doesn't always remember your information, but that's where you need to speak up for yourself. He helped us get pregnant via ivf, and I am so glad we saw him. I would definitely recommend him to friends.
Dr. Gantt is a wonderful doctor. He never gave up on us. He is honest and does not give false hope but I liked that about him. We struggled for 9 years trying to have a baby and he helped guide us through. I read the other opinions on here about him being rude and not helping with the meds. It can get confusing but that is not his fault. He cannot hold your hand. You just have to listen and take notes. It is important if you are seeing him so if you do not understand ask questions. He answered all of my questions and believe me I had plenty. I made notes before my appointments and took notes while I was there. I made sure I understood everything before I left his office. As for not remembering your information, he does see a lot of patients and also performs procedures so he is a busy man with a lot going on and does not have time to review every single one every single time. Speak up and tell him, remind him where you are at in the process and what you are working on now. He does not mind, it helps him remember. This man knows what he is doing. We have a beautiful baby girl to prove it. I would recommend him to anyone and have recommended him to several. I would have done that even without success of having a child. He never gave up on us and even followed us through our pregnancy and came to the delivery and visited us after.
