Dr. Gaitan is the most thorough and compassionate physician I have ever known. Being a patient of his is extremely comforting. He is an excellent diagnostician as well as medical care provider. His staff is friendly and very efficient. One could not be in better hands!

Dr. Gaitan has been my mother's Dr. for many, many years. He has always provided excellent care for her as middle aged woman. Now that she has become elderly and needs additional help with her care, he has been amazing working with our family. Dr. Gaitan has a very compassionate bedside manner and very practical easy manner. He is an excellent doctor.

I scheduled an appointment in Sept of this year. My appointment was set for December. When I arrived at the doctor's office I was told by the office staff "I guess we forgot to schedule your appointment in the computer." Then I was told that the doctor was not accepting new patients. I waited all this time and never got to see the doctor. The office staff did not apologize or offer an alternative solution.

Dr. Gaitan, is very cold and abrupt, was not warm or empathetic towards me , his office staff was very rude to me as well and Dr. Gaitan's & his office staff's beside manner is very poor. He is not willing to work with you when it comes to scheduling conflicts or swinging by his office a few mintues after 4 pm to pick up samples if you are just getting off work at that time. Because of his inability to be flexible and his rude office staff I received a letter stating he was no longer my Dr.

I have been under the medical care of Dr. Gaitan following a significant medical issue and subsequent traumatic hand injury in 2007. Dr. Gaitain has always made himself available by responding to my medical issues promptly and in a very precise manner, and the medical care he has provided has been exceptional in every regard. Additionally, Dr. Gaitan bedside manner in providing the proper medical care to my mother in a hospice environment exceeded anything we could have ever expected.

Dr Gaitan is smart, compassionate, empathetic, and very willing to listen. He met with me in a very timely manner and explained everything he was doing at a level on which I understood totally.
in Wentzville |
He is the only endocrinologist that I will see. His bedside manners are the upmost professional. I had lots of questions regarding my condition and he not only answered them all, he stayed and explained thoroughly what I needed to do.
