    Dr G himself is an adequate physician. When my visits to Dr G initially started he and his staff were very attentive to my needs and very respectable. After my first year as a patient things changed and so did the staff. His previous nurse Miss Merlene was fabulous but his new nurse nor the good Dr. will even return phone calls anymore. I have recommended many people to Dr. G in the past but will no longer do that.
