Review of Christopher Menster


Chris was with me in all of the Team meetings, but most importantly, he was the lead contact throughout the entire process for the surgery issues. Besides being super communicative, he was almost a family member in his care and demeanor, going well beyond wonderful in his attentiveness to my well-being. What a neat guy! Mine was a remarkably involved and traumatic spinal reconstruction, and this smiling and genuine medical professional took SUCH incredible care of me, with the help of a really sweet staff. I don't know what Chris's future plans are, but I do know that he'll make one of those great people who makes you smile when you come out of that induced coma... and he's there by your bedside! A friend once told me that I'm surrounded by Angels, and I'm sure that Chris is one of those... Thanks for asking!

Review of Dr. Katsafanas


Dr Katsafanas is an exceptional physician. While she was able to rule out my issues related to her specialty, she didn't stop there. Instead of just "ruling out' the issue, she went over an beyond to help me find relief and identify the next step to get closer to my diagnosis. She has an excellent bedside manner, knows her expertise and utilizes the vast knowledge she has gained in other areas outside of her expertise. I am thankful to have has an appointment with her. Dr Katsafanas is a stand out physician and highly recommended.

Review of Dr. Caro


A truly great doctor! He was smart & really explained my lab results and tests very clearly. It was a busy day in the ER, but I watched him take time to teach other doctors in training about my illness too. Thankful for his care.

Review of Dr. Gysling

-Jacksonville, FL |

I've been to BMC Jax ER on multiple prior occasions and Dr. Gysling was the WORST doctor I've ever had. In sum, I went to the ER a day after surgery for a terrifying complication. He dismissed me completely w/o even doing a proper exam. He suggested my issue was "all in my head" despite its visibility and that I needed to "go see a psychiatrist." Two days later my OB told me I had a blood clot. They told me to return to the ER ASAP but I won't b/c of my horrible experience with Dr. Gysling.

Review of Dr. Thomas

-Santa Rosa |

I was sent to the ER with a potentially life-threatening reaction to a new med. This man fabricated an erroneous "diagnosis"--made it up out of whole cloth. Would anyone go to the ER because of a SORE THROAT? That's what he wrote as my presenting problem and diagnosis. Not once had I reported a sore throat--because I did not have a sore throat. He invented it. Dr. Thomas's dismissive treatment and mistreatment of me did not have life-threatening consequences. Someone else might not be so lucky.

Review of Dr. Wainscott

- in Casper, WY |

She listened to what I had to say, my questions, concerns and fears. She was willing to dialogue and discuss these things with a compassionate heart. I really appreciated her straight forward answers. I believe she is a smart doctor and good at her job!
