Dr. Gassner is my best buddy. He helps me do things the correct way. I can't really afford the MDVIP membership anymore but I wouldn't trade Doc for the world.

from Cary March 27, 2017 for Lawrence P. Gassner, MD

Dr. Gassner is an excellent doctor, who takes his time during appointments to listen and understand what I am saying, and then fully explains his diagnosis and recommendations. He makes sure I understand what he is saying, and goes into considerable detail to insure that he is getting the point accress.

He is undoubtedly the best doctor I have had the good fortune to be associated with… See more

from Anthony in AZ March 14, 2016 for Lawrence P. Gassner, MD

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. I have been treated for high blood pressure since I was 20 years old I haven't on various… See more

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.

from JOANNE in AZ February 17, 2014 for Lawrence P. Gassner, MD

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

Dr Larry Gassner provides compassionate care.
He is always only as far away as his cell phone.
He is extremely knowledgeable and he provides his patients with quality care.
We feel fortunate to have found such a competent doctor when we moved to Scottsdale 3 years ago.
He has a great staff that enhances his practice.
He is everything you would want your doctor to… See more

from Chip in AZ February 10, 2014 for Lawrence P. Gassner, MD

Dr. Gassner's way of explaining the risks of being over weight motivated me to lose 45 pounds.

What will your life be like when you turn 100? A century ago the question seemed almost flippant, a needless consideration for most people, but today it's very real. The percentage of people living to 100 has grown almost 66 percent in the last 30 years, according to U.S. News and World Report… See more

As a primary care physician, I play a vital role: providing care, offering guidance and rocking out.

Seriously — I took one of my patients to the Foo Fighters concert in September. He earned it.

A new grandfather and a musician himself, my patient spends a lot of time on the road… See more
