Had a hip replacement in 2011 and was pleased with Dr. G and the way he treated me as a patient. He always put me at ease. I have full confidence in him. I need another hip done and he is the only one I trust.

He is one of the best, but he does not have an e-mail address with which to communicate with patients. Appointment scheduling is horrible. I am in pain NOW and they want to give me an appointment for 6 weeks from now That's unacceptable!. That will get me to another Doctor real fast!
