I love Dr. Gecht. He is thorough, knowledgeable. He has a great sense of humor. He saved my husband's life.

Very disappointed with Dr Gecht and some of his personnel. Lack of concern for patient when in hospital! You have to remind them several times when you need a referral, when calling on the phone they will put you on eternal hold!!

I would not recommend this MD for patients below maybe 65. I am 30 and went in for an annual physical and he basically questioned why I was there if there was nothing wrong - as if younger patients should have preventive care. Also questioned why I wanted HIV testing...umm, because that should be standard regardless of age, sexual orientation, etc. and my insurance pays for it just like all of the other standard tests. Needless to say, I did not go back to him this year for my annual physical.
