September 25, 2012

I can not say enough about Dr Gibson. She is absolutely amazing and Im deeply sadden that the clinic is losing such a great Dr.

September 18, 2012

The best find for me was to find Dr. Gibson. She is by far the best primary care doctor I have ever been too. She seems to truly care about my well being. I just can't say enough great things about her!!!!!!

September 18, 2012

Great doctor for sure!

September 18, 2012

Dr. Gibson is the best, most thorough, kind, and intelligent doctor I have ever had. I love that she discusses and asks my input about a plan of action. She never acts rushed and takes the time needed to address all issues. I recommend her to all my friends. I continue to come to her, although my insurance has changed and she is not on my plan. She is just that impressive.

September 17, 2012

Was the most pleased I have been with any visit in the past few years. I loved the time and individual attention I received from Dr. Gibson.

September 17, 2012

Dr. Gibson is the most caring physician I have ever had the honor to be in treatment with...she is a very genuine person. That is so refreshing.

September 14, 2012

Dr. Gibson obviously cares about her patients.

September 13, 2012

Dr. Gibson is so great. I have never had a family doctor, so I was really happy to finally find one I actually connected with. She spent a lot of time with me and helped me figure out what injury I had sustained and answered all my questions. I am really sad she is leaving the clinic!!!!

September 11, 2012

Dr Gibson is a Very Good Doctor

September 10, 2012

I LOVE Dr. Gibson. She is the most thorough provider I have ever seen. She makes eye contact, she does not act rushed, and she does not dismiss my concerns. She is always behind schedule, but I realize when my appointment is at the end of the day that is probably going to happen, and I understand she is giving her other patients the same courtesy that she will give me.

September 03, 2012

Dr. Gibson is amazing! I have already started to work on getting my spouse to switch primaries and if I'm ever asked about a provider, Dr. Gibson is ALWAYS my recommendation! Love her!

August 27, 2012

Dr. Gibson was awesome! She is a wonderful doctor and answered all my questions and really took her time with me.

August 27, 2012

It would have been helpful if the call center had let me know that Dr. Gibson is leaving so I could have chosen another doctor. I was coming in for a p hysical to start with a new primary care doctor.

August 27, 2012

Dr. Gibson was very caring and listened to all of my concerns. She gave good advice and was very caring.

Dr Gibson was very thorough in her questions and exam. She showed me examples of stenosis on the computer and explained what the diagrams meant.

August 13, 2012

Dr. Gibson has always shown me 100% respect for my concerns and gone way out of her way to make sure that my needs were met even if it meant contacting me after visits to check in, or following up with my other physicians. She is awesome!!!!!

August 13, 2012

Dr Gibson is an outstanding physician with notable bedside manner. She explains things well and takes time with each patient.

August 08, 2012

the doctor didnt even take out the growth on my face and didnt tell me that he wasnt going to take it all out as he was sending the small peice removed to be testing. so now i have to make another appoment to get the entire growth removed thank you very much

August 07, 2012

I already have recommended dr. katherine gibson to a large group of people.

August 06, 2012

Dr. Gibson is awesome and takes the time to find out whats going on rather than just coming in, checking whatever, handing you a diagnosis and leaving again. Her thoroughness can cause her to run a little behind so it's a trade off.

August 06, 2012

Very good experience.

July 31, 2012

Dr. Gibson is a fabulous physician. She took the time to adequately address my problem, and she showed sincere concern for my issue. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends without hesitation.

May 08, 2012

Dr. Gibbson.....She is probably the best Dr. I have ever seen.....She treats you like an equal....She doesn't act like I'm the Dr. and you don't know anything about your own body like I do.....She is funderful....

May 05, 2012

We were very impressed and will not go anywhere else

May 02, 2012

I didn't mind waiting so long to see Dr. Gibson when I realized I likely waited because she affords each patient the time they truly need and does not rush.

April 03, 2012

Kathryn Gibson is AMAZING! I love having her as my provider.

April 03, 2012

was a good experience

March 29, 2012

Dr Gibson was very good at talking to my daughter as well as to me about her condition, which really gave my daughter great trust that the doctor saw her as an important part of the treatment process, not just a child.

March 24, 2012

By Monday afternoon Kathryn had already released my labs to my chart and sent me a my chart message to discuss them with me-and recommendations to f/u with my PCP Dr Sanyer next week. Kathryn is my back up PCP and co-manages me with Dr Sanyer. They make sure that they both know what is going on with me, and include me in that as well.

March 23, 2012

She is excellent, goes above and beyond to help her patients.

March 22, 2012

Dr Gibson was wonderful. I came to her with a lot of issues. She really to the time to listen to everything, determine what needed to be done next, and gave me confidence that we would get to the root of the problem and deal with it. It was the best Doctors visit I have ever had. I am motivated and determined to take better care of myself and willing to follow her future treatment plans.

March 20, 2012

My examination by Dr. Gibson was very routine and I had no surprises. For never seeing this Provider I was very comfortable in her presents and will go back to her. Thankyou Dr. Gibson.

March 17, 2012

Both Dr Gibson and her PA were excellent. They cared about my concerns and explained my options very well.

March 16, 2012

I would never see this provider again, within the first 5 minutes of my visit I was told 'pick the most important problem, we wont be able to get to them all today' I was being seen for trouble breathing and for chest pain. I am a medical assistant and I am almost certain that the two are linked together but I had to choose one to talk about, not to mention the ONE problem was not even solved! My overall experience at the actual clinic was nice, the MA was very friendly (she didnt show much concern however) but I would just NEVER see kathryn gibson again.

March 15, 2012

I have been looking for years for a doctor like Dr. Gibson. She really cares, listens and made me feel like my concerns for my health were valid.

March 06, 2012

Dr. Gibson was so great! She let me explain all my concerns and discussed each of them in depth with me. I feel like she went the extra mile to make sure everything was addressed and I was confident that everything would be okay when I left. I really appreciate all the time she spent with me and am happy to continue my healthcare with her.

March 06, 2012

Dr. Gibson was great. She spent a great deal of time with me and made me feel very comfortable. She was so kind and caring. I live in SLC and I am more than happy to make the drive to Daybreak to see Dr. Gibson! The entire clinic experience was superb!

March 06, 2012

good and bad

February 29, 2012

Dr. Gibson did a great job explaining things to me, making recommendations, and included the student intern in her explanations, while encouraging the intern to get involved.

Dr Gibson is excellent. I will definitely recommend her to others.

Dr. Gibson was great, the best doctor I have ever visited

February 02, 2012

Excellent provider. Because of care I recieved I have chosen to switch to Dr. Gibson as my primary care provider

January 31, 2012

Kathryn Gibson shows personal, compassionate care. And makes the visit informative, friendly and fun.

January 26, 2012

Everything was good, but It would be nice if there was more information given about side effects of medications It would have been nice to have been warned about side-effect and what I could do about it.

January 13, 2012

Dr Gibson is exactly the kind of physiican i want for my family as is this building. Assuming processes improve and delays are fixed, i will be very pleased in using SJ health cneter for my healthcare needs.
