After suffering a stroke when I was out of town, Dr. Gassner was a comfort to
me and explained what had happened and how lucky I was to still be walking and talking. 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

Dr. Gassner is one fine doctor. Period! In fact, he's the best sawbones I've ever been treated by. However, I still think he should remove his ring when he slips on the latex glove!!!!!
I like seeing Dr. Gassner. He spends the time I need with me, and does not rush me out. He explains things in a way I can understand.. When I have tests, he gives me the results by calling me the next day.

Beyond the obvious, competency, we love Dr. Gassner's sense of humor, the easy access no matter where we are, the fact that he knows us and he listens even when the symptoms sound pretty crazy!
Dr. G is my salvation. Whether I am at an appointment or calling for immediate help, he always has time. In May of 2011, he responded to my call that I had a 99 blocked carotid artery. This was found by Lifeline Screening. He immediately set me up for another ultrasound, which confirmed the prior result. Then I had a 3D cat scan which reconfirmed and I was then scheduled for hospital… See more
