First of all Dr. G is the absolute best primary care Dr I have ever had, and I have had plenty. It would take all day to relate all my reasons, so let me just sum it up with as few words as possible: attentive, sincere, pleasant, knowledgeable, caring but never makes you feel rushed or in a hurry.

For 15 years Dr. Gassner has been avaiable for my every need. He has been able to help me while I travel extensively. A phone call to him and within minutes he is on the phone and helping. He exceptonal bedside manner comes through in every call and in the help he gives. No one better!!!!!
I feel safe and cared for by Dr. Gassner and his staff. Having fallen through the cracks, so to speak, in the conventional medical setting, I am grateful to be able to be with MDVIP.I only wish that everyone requiring medical care could have the same quality of practice.
I can't say enough about Dr. Gassner . This is my second year with him and I am totally happy with his care and guidance . I am a Canadian snow bird and Dr. Gassner even came to my rescue when I was 3200 miles away. Following knee replacement surgery I developed a difficult infection and Dr. Gassner helped to identify and treat it .
He has been following up on my exercise program… See more

He has pushed us to a healthy active life,… See more
After suffering a stroke when I was out of town, Dr. Gassner was a comfort to

He then proceeded to take care of my needs, all the tests that needed to be done, any other doctors I was to see and recommended a doctor to do the needed surgery. I am very happy with his care going forward and I am… See more
