Penny and I have been Larry's patients for at least 6 years now. We could not be happier! His care and concern for us are appreciated of course, but his easy going demeanor and spontaneous sense of humor are priceless and make going to see Larry a pleasure.

Our Dr. has our health as his interest. We are very comfortable going to see him and his associates.

Our doctor, Dr. Lawrence Gassner, is someone we think of at two levels, as a trusted physician and a concerned friend. His watchful eyes were the very first to dx. my husband as having an early state of Multiple Myeloma; he convinced my husband of the urgency to see an oncologist. Thru the past 6 years of our association with Dr. Gassner, we have never felt any waiver in his attention to us… See more
Dr. Gassner is the only Dr. I have ever had that is more interested in preventing illness as well as getting to know me as a person and not a patient.

I feel like he is family because he is truly concerned about me and is always helpful and friendly. I can feel a smile on his… See more
Dr. Gassner and his staff have always been there for me. When he is out of state or itâ€™s the weekend, I receive the same great service as I do during regular hours. Service is excellent. My health is their concern.
