MY HUSBAND AND I BOTH SEE DR. GIBBONS. WE THINK HE IS THE BEST DOCTOR WE'VE EVER BEEN TO. HE FOLLOWS UP WITH YOU RIGHT AWAY AND TAKES THE TIME NECESSARY TO DO THE JOB RIGHT. HE CALLS BACK ON OFF HOURS (ONE TIME ON SUNDAY MID MORNING AND ONE TIME AT 9:45 AT NIGHT.) I SO RESPECT THAT! HE IS NOT A "I'LL ONLY WORK MY HOURS" TYPE OF GUY. HE WILL HANDLE SEVERAL DIFFERENT CONCERNS DURING THE SAME APPOINTMENT, TOO. GREAT GUY!
