I guess I was not so special after all :-).… See more

from Michael in AZ March 1, 2020 for Lawrence P. Gassner, MD

Dr. Gassner is so knowledgable and really listens to you. His patience when asking questions is bar none the best bed-side manner I have ever encountered. He is always prompt and courteous and we are very happy with our choice of doctor and MDVIP. 

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
