Dr. Garland W Gossett has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.

Dr. Gossett came to me highly recommended so I might have a bit higher expectations. I had procedures already that were forwarded to him, he failed to review. He probably makes his money on endoscopy and colonoscopy. I think if this is a procedure you need, he is probably one of the better in the Houston area. However, I was very dissatisfied with the feedback after the procedure. He gave me very little direction and basically sent me back to my Internist for further review. Apparently, the endoscopy had confirmed my prior diagnoses, which he had prior to performing the endoscopy.

Radiological Technologist

I have never used Dr. Gossett as a patient, but I attended an xray seminar which he was the speaker for Continuing Edcation for my profession. He was a GREAT speaker, very knowledgeable in his GI talk and had a great perosonality with a hint of comic in his demeanor. All the techs in attendance that seemed to work with him seemed like they had a good reporte with him. I am not sure what happened with some of these reviews I see on here, but I can not imagine the same man not having a GREAT bedside manor. If he works in a teaching environment, it isn't unusual at all for the resident to come in prior to the physician and interview or check the patient out....that comes with the territory, happens to everyone in that setting. I am sorry to hear some have not had a good experience and surely hope it can be marked up to Natural causes, or just a bad experience, bad day. Dr. Gossett truly seemed highly intelligent in the scope of his GI expertise in my opinion from his lecture that day. He was totally swamped at the end by by constituents trying to talk to him further or get his business card.

Pill pusher who does not listen to the patient

I went to see Dr. Gossett three times and was prescribed 4 different medications without running any tests or discussion options with me. Finally I convinced him we should run at least one blood test and he never discussed the results with me directly and only spoke to his medical students while in the room. The only time he even touched me was to shake my hand when I first met him. Sadly he did not listen to any of my concerns, did not answer any of my questions, could not remember what tests we had run and really seemed more anxious to go see other patients than discuss what was going on with me. On our final visit he prescribed a medication I did not want to take due to the side effects, I told him as much and he still insisted on prescribing it for me, told me he would be back shortly and then sent his nurse in to give me the RX and to schedule a follow up appointment. If you are looking for a pill pushing doctor who is not necessarily concerned with what is actually wrong with you, then he might be the right doctor, otherwise I suggest you look for someone else.
