Dr. Amanda Gosman, MD - Reviews
Dr.Gosman,is the best.I had a reconstructed stomach do to hernias.Within a month I was walking and driving.What a caring dr. Thanks again for my surgery .
Her arrogance & ineptitude forced me to wait over 3 hours MULTIPLE TIMES for scheduled clinic appointments - is ANY doctor worth that kind of wasted time? NO! She thinks she walks on water, but trust me - she is NOT worth it! In fact, I had an infection that she "missed" that resulted in 6 days of IV treatment as an inpatient & resulted in an open wound that required an additional surgery that I definitely had a DIFFERENT surgeon handle. STAY AWAY from Amanda Gosman at all costs - she is one of the WORST doctors I have ever encountered! The "awards" she receives are from other ego-centric doctors that ALSO force patients to wait forever & who also could care less about your time and/or outcomes. Try Scripss, Grossmont, or Kaiser - anyone is better than UCSD Plastic Surgery - just read the reviews!!!
Consistently an hour to 2 hours late for appointments, just to spend 2 minutes in the room with you. The most time I got with her was finally unloading on her the terrible treatment I'd received for the past year and a half. They add things to your chart that aren't discussed, I've had people at the office tell me different things regarding my surgery and after care, and even had a nurse open the door to leave while I was still undresses in the middle of the room. On top of that my concerns were repeatedly ignored and questions remained unanswered. I wish I hadn't had my surgery here, results were not great, so I hadn't had to deal with her for follow up for the next year. Should have found a better surgeon.
Amanda Gosman came highly rated, but through my experience several red flags were drawn. I requested an appt before my surgical date, and at the last minute it was cancelled, I was forced to move my surgical date. I was to have an open septoplasty (rhinoplasty). Feb 10, 2017 the day of my surgery I showed up to UCSD medical center, on edge because I had very little information about the procedure, and was quite worried of the outcome. Not only did she not show up before I was taken back, but I was left on edge. Fast forward to getting out of surgery. Woke up in Post-op, in massive pain (to be expected) was told they were going to give me morphine for pain (I am HIGHLY allergic, Gosman ordered morphine for my rescue dose pain medication, her name is on the chart as ordering physician) Get discharged after 24 hours. Go home and have a "pop" sensation, followed by a massive headache that will not go away. Cannot stand up without feeling like my head was going to combust, and go in for an urgent appointment. Amanda Gosman proceeded to tell me that my symptoms were 100% psycho-somatic and I should take some valium, which she was happy to prescribe. Not happy with this answer, I go to my PCP, where she is in full belief that I have a cerebral-spinal fluid leak. I get an urgent referral for a same day appt to ENT(in another health care system). I was given a CT Angiogram with Spinal Contrast, and my olfactory foramina light up. Boom, cerebral-spinal fluid leak. So not only did she cause further damage to what the procedure was, I am to this day experiencing now other side effects from the procedure. 1. I was given a silicone nasal graft. It has migrated to my right nostril. I am having a surgery to remove it, and to be replaced with rib/ear cartilage, by my expert ENT. 2. She did something to my septum that required her to put in artificial materials in to "patch" my septum, require extraction from my ENT. 3. She didn't fix my deviated septum, she only made it look "prettier". I was hit in the face with a softball, and broke my nose and my left eye socket. My 1 request was to be able to breathe better and have my nose intact, the way it was before my break. My wish was 100% ignored as my ENT is now fixing the deformity. Thank god for my ENT, and his bedside manner. He saved this experience and is the only reason I didn't sue her. She should be thankful I didn't sue, because all of my medical records backed up the negligence she caused. If you break your nose, and you get a referral to UCSD Plastic Surgery, make sure to get that referral switched to UCSD ENT or my favorite Scripps ENT.
Dr. Gosman performed the placement of tissue expanders immediately after I had double mastectomies (same surgery). Based on the interactions Iâve had with her and the quality of her work, I would highly discourage others from using her for breast reconstruction. I had no problems with or hesitations about her after my first consultation, but things changed when my surgery happened. I was told she was going to come see me before my procedure and âmark me upâ so I knew what to expect, but that didnât happen, I never even saw her on the day of my surgery. I had one plastics post-op check while in the hospital done by a male resident Iâd never met, and all office visits and tissue expansions were done by her PAs. The next time I saw her was 5 months later to discuss my next and final surgery to replace the expanders with implants. She was running 45 minutes late and then only spent 8 minutes with me. I was not happy with the position of my expanders and when I expressed my concerns to her, she brushed them off and told me she could make some slight adjustments during the next surgery. I left the appointment not knowing what size or profile of implant would be used and feeling very doubtful that I would be happy with the results if she performed the surgery. I decided to seek a second opinion and ended up having my tissue expanders redone. While Dr. Gosman was never outright rude to me and did no irreversible damage, my case was not complicated yet I had to go through an additional surgery. For such a significant procedure on a private body part, I have come to expect a much higher level of compassion and quality of work than Dr. Gosman provided.
