San Diego, CA |
I have been a patient of Dr Gaylis over the last 3 years. I find him very competent and nice to talk to. He helped me with hearing and nasal problems.
San Diego, CA |
Dr. Gaylis was kind and supportive in explaining my options after Mohs surgery on my nose. He understood my concern about having surgery on such a visible area. I was very pleased with the outcome of the surgery, and would recommend Dr. Gaylis to others.
San Diego, CA |
Treated me with utter contempt- he looked visibly disgusted, barely looked me over, and told me I didn't want to fix the problem I went in for that's been bothering me for decades. Considering lodging an official complaint- I'd avoid him like the plague, he's no business practising medicine if he can't treat his patients with an ounce of respect. Never been treated this badly by a doctor before.

Poor Doctor stay away. Doesn't know what he is doing and is borderline reckless.

Very professional and listened to what I had to say. Had genuine caring for my condition.
Horrible Doctor for your own safety do not see this man, he is sick

Really bad Doctor, not interested in helping patients. Seems laid back & careless.
