"Dr. Gibson is absolutely wonderful! He is kind and funny and has really good bedside manner. Not once did I feel uncomfortable or uneasy. He was constantly reassuring me that everything would be great. The week prior to surgery I had to have talked to him 4 times. For a surgeon thats a lot of time to take out for phone calls. He was polite and as nice as could be. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to have GBP in the Chicago area."
