She took extra time to tell me how strong and brave I'd been. She was very supportive, and was concerned about more than just the physical health.

May 19, 2015

Dr Gibson is very friendly and professional

May 13, 2015

Dr. Gibson is such an amazing physician. she takes time with me and answers my questions better than any physician I've ever seen (which is s lot). she is caring and takes me seriously. as my neurologist, there is nothing about Dr Gibson I don't like. my only complaint is with the u of u itself and their stance on thymectomies and lack of treatment options for myasthenia gravis.

April 06, 2015

Dr. Gibson is great and very through and concerned.

March 12, 2015

Dr. Noah Kolb and Dr.Summer Gibbson, so informative, professional but caring. I find some physicians to be condescending and patronizing but not these doctors. Couldn't have asked for better care.

February 19, 2015

She was very professional and took my condition seriously.

February 11, 2015

The ALS Clinic has been set up very effectively and helpful.

January 17, 2015

Dr. Gibson is fantastic and I'm happy she is treating my MG. I love the way she explains things and takes the time to answer my questions.

January 12, 2015

Very compassionate and kind to us

January 05, 2015

Great compassion was shown there.

January 05, 2015

I am able to know how als is progressing when providers test my muscles and recommend things.

December 15, 2014

I am pleased with the way all of the staff treats me and my husband. everyone treats us as people and not just and not just another number.

October 02, 2014

Dr. Gibson is upbeat, informative and very personable

August 15, 2014

Dr. Gibson was very kind and professional. She explained the steps we need to take and I look forward to working with her. She explained possible alternative paths for treatment and where she felt it best to start. I have confidence in her ability.

July 25, 2014

Dr Gibson is very much appreciated

July 25, 2014

No problems

July 24, 2014

Dr Gibson has treated me better than the reputation that most neurologists have.

July 23, 2014

I won't refer a friend when I know they'll be treated as another number coming through the doors.

July 17, 2014

Both Dr. Gibson and Dr. Chen were excellent. I was especially appreciative of the thorough evaluation by Dr. Chen!

June 30, 2014

She was great

June 21, 2014

I made my appt. with a specific doctor but I was helped by a doctor who is moving to another clinic she didn't seem too concerned about my questions, and why should she I will never see her again. I wish the doctor would come in at the first of the visit for questions or concerns I came to the appt. with and then again after a student or who does the exam is finished for extra questions that came up during the exam. I know the doctors are extremely busy but my questions wouldn't take too long and I would feel like I got my answers by a doctor who I trust and would like to answer my questions not just pop in and out.

May 29, 2014

Dr. Gibson was just what I needed that day....we laughed and had a great visit. I have been to Momberg, Kolb, and this time had Gibson. They are all great and very competent...but I have to say that Dr. Gibson's bedside manner was outstanding!

May 27, 2014

Dr Gibson is excellent

May 12, 2014

Great program. Gives opportunity to discuss overall situations. Excellent!

May 10, 2014

Dr. Gibson is a pure joy to work with. Her optimism and smile are infectious.

March 19, 2014

exceptional she really cared! Liked her a lot

March 14, 2014

I really like Dr. Gibson. It was only the second time that I was seen by her but she makes me feel like I've been her patient for years. Thank you!

March 13, 2014

My doctor was very good. My experience was good.

March 01, 2014

it was a very good experience, I have been to many doctors, I would say that she is one of the top doctors I've been to. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a neurologist she's very knowledgeable and kind. I felt very confident in her I trusted her, I would definitely come back and have her treat me as a regular patient.

February 02, 2014

I look forward to my visits at the Neurology clinic and feel like I'm getting the best care possible. I'm very happy with Dr. Gibson and the other specialists that interact with me.

January 23, 2014

Dr.Gibson always looking for answers to problems

November 29, 2013

The doctor was vey interactive

November 27, 2013

Dr. Summer is a very caring and knowledgable provider

November 15, 2013

Dr Gibson is a lean, mean neurologizing machine.

November 11, 2013

well, someone else actually did the test, the EMG, i don't remember his name. he didn't exactly tell me what he was doing, but then i actually didn't want to know so i wouldn't get scared. i don't like to look at needles. so afterward the Dr. explained the test results and recommendation and was very nice and polite. good visit.

November 04, 2013

It is rare to find a doctor as good as Dr Gibson. Thank you for your care given me. I think I get health from most doctors. Dr Gibson gave me health and care!

October 31, 2013

I just love Dr. Summer Gibson!

October 30, 2013

I was more than impressed with Dr. Gibson. I have spent the past 2 years seeing numerous doctors and Dr. Gibson was my last appointment before traveling to the Mayo Clinic for answers. She took the time needed to help me understand what was going on with my disease, was able to conduct further testing to confirm my diagnosis, and was very compassionate and caring. I feel like I am getting the best care available by having Dr. Gibson as my doctor. She went above and beyond what a normal medical professional would have done and I am so grateful for her wisdom and the care she showed me.

October 21, 2013

don't wish this condition on anyone but if they came to me with their diagnosis I would highly recommend.

October 17, 2013

I have confidence in the staff and all have been very good to me

September 03, 2013

Dr. Gibson was very nice and very sympathetic to my condition. She laid out a 3 step plan that we were going to follow. That made me confident that she was not just going to try one treatment and then give up. However, I am now a week out after the first treatment has ended and I have called and sent multiple messages on mychart and I have not heard back from anyone. It oily. It is very frustrating.

September 02, 2013

This was a excellent experience -

August 29, 2013

Dr Gibson is very knowledgeable. She seems more like a seasoned doctor than one just out of school.

August 13, 2013

I dislike seeing a different resident every time I come. BUT I adore Dr. Summer Gibson, so as long as I can always see her, too, I guess I'm OK with that.

August 13, 2013

Dr. Gibson is an excellent communicator and provides the utmost in confidence.

August 05, 2013

Amazing provider. It is frightening to change to a new doctor, we moved here from out of state and I had a 20 year treating relationship with my previous neurologist. Dr. Gibson treated me with respect, listened to all my concerns, discussed care plan, and supported my choices. She was warm and friendly instead of cold and clinical.

July 23, 2013

My wife and I both felt very comfortable with Dr. Summer Gibson and are pleased that she will be directing my future care.

July 22, 2013

I have recommended Dr Gibson to one of my clients who is suffering with Nerapathy now. I really appreciate Dr Gibson and here professional care that she has been offering me.

July 15, 2013

She was very nice and seemed to be very knowledgeable

July 04, 2013

DR. GIBSON WAS VERY GOOD BUT I THOUGHT I WOULD HAVE A PROGNOSIS GIVEN TO ME AFTER MY BLOOD WORK WAS DONE, SINCE IT ONLY TAKES 1DAY TO GET THOSE RESULTS. I REALIZE HOW BUSY YOU ALL ARE BUT ISN'T THIS "MY CHART" SUPPOSED TO CUT THE PROCESSING TIME OF GETTING PATIENTS IN AND OUT OF BEING TAKEN CARE?

June 24, 2013

Not much was really resolved. Instruction were for another MRI, blood tests, and then a followup with Dr. Gibson

June 17, 2013

The doctor provided excellent explanations of my illness. She exceeded my expectations.

April 26, 2013

Dr. Gibson and Dr. Bromberg were great.

March 28, 2013

I love Dr Gibson. She is caring, professional and listens to my questions and concerns. Dr Singleton is awesome also. I appreciate both Drs and am very grateful to be able to be under the care of such good Doctors.

March 11, 2013

She's the best, ought to be the model for others to follow

March 11, 2013

Dr. Gibson is terrific! I was very nervous about coming to a research hospital because I did not want to be treated like a lab rat. She put me completely at ease and I realized she was not going to rush in to any decisions about me. She wanted to do some research about medications she might put me on. That was very reassuring to me.
