After seeking help for chronic mid back pain and spasm for years Dr Gehkt agreed to see me and review my case. He did a nerve block and later, nerve ablation which has given me much relief. When my fingers went numb and arm strength was impaired, he did a cervical nerve block; that took care of the problem. The procedures were well explained and painless. The office staff and surgicenter staff are great. If I have a problem, I see the nurse practitioner. This has worked well.

I went in with a fairly complex case that had been treated with physical therapy and spinal steroid injections before I went. I should have gone to him first, as his diagnosis was spot on and required less invasive steroid shots to the SI joint. Dr. Gekht is an amazing doctor who has helped manage my pain from walking and standing, headaches, and pretty severe back pain. His office is clean, and employees are friendly and efficient. I appreciate the care and concern he gave me, as well as the effective treatment. I am active again, waking and riding my bike. My pain is reduced over 95% and I expect to be pain free soon.

I have been to see Dr. Gekht many times over the years for different matters, and each time, his procedures were well described and expertly carried out. My last recent treatment was a cervical ablation and after just two days, my results were amazing. I called the office to express my gratitude to Dr. Gekht and received a call directly from him. I have always been treated with respect at his office, as well as his surgery center. Highly recommend.

Dr Gekht has treated me two different times for neck pain 4 years apart. The first time I remained pain free for 4 years and the second time I have been pain free for 4 years and running. He is an excellent doctor with a wonderful bed side manner. I highly recommend him.

Shame! I have been seeing Dr Gekht for 4 yrs. I had good results then.. Now, 4 shots later, no relief. His excellent PA Teresa left last yea, and the current people working with Gekht pale in comparison. Return phone calls are not timely, with staffers oblivious to patients' urgent need for pain meds. His new PA is haughty, with no sense of urgency.. I complained & they fired me! As much as I like Gekht personally, you should find a more caring practice staffed with people who care about you !

Dr. Gekht has been very helpful and kind to me. However, after a year of treatment, I still have chronic pain. On several visits, I have only seen his PA, Brianna. She is patronizing and condescending and seems totally uninterested in my pain management. I am not happy with paying expensive charges for a specialist and getting service from someone who is not a physician and not even a caring individual. On my last visit, she offered to call in a RX for muscle relaxer, but she did not.

This sounds melodramatic but this doctor has changed my life. I lived with constant severe pain despite multiple surgeries. The final fusion (S1 - T12) stabilized my back but I still had incredible nerve pain. Dr. Gekht installed a spinal cord stimulator which has been nothing short of a miracle. Additionally, this man is kind, caring and a delight to see. He is the best doctor I have ever, ever had.

I've suffered back pain for several years. Went to many doctors, physical therapists, and chiropractors, All to no avail. Someone recommended Dr Gekht and I thought what do I have to lose? Coastal orthopedics have the latest and best technology and equipment and absolutely the best doctor. Dr Gekhet gave me one shot for my sacroiliac, and yes I was pain-free. OMG he is a miracle worker. In addition, he has a great bedside manner, a cute accent, and a sense of you humor.

Dr. Gekht is the first doctor to successfully treat a chronic back problem that I have had for over 15 years. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an effective approach to dealing with back pain and, in my case, the treatment did not rely on pain medication. He has a great bedside manner and is a lot of fun to talk to. He's the best.

After seeing several doctors who were unsuccessful in addressing my neck pain and migraines, I was referred to Dr. Gekht and found him to be thorough and successful in resolving my neck pain by performing cervical radiofrequency ablation and medial branch blocks. He has a wonderful bedside manner and always puts his patients' concerns foremost. I moved to El Paso, Texas in 2014 and am currently in the process of trying to find a doctor in our area who can serve me as Dr. Gekht did.

Would definitely recommend and have recommended friends to Dr Gekht. He has given me some relief from back pain after hearing from others for many years that "there's nothing we can do for you." I live too far away to continue with Dr Gekht as I am still working and an hour and a half one-way is too much to take out of my day just in travel time.

Dr. Gekht is a disgrace. They made us wait nearly 1 month for an ESI then wouldn't give us the ESI due to a scheduling mistake. They didn't care and told us we had to wait. We are expecting a baby and could not wait. We told them this we planned our lives around the ESI appointment. They admitted their mistake but didn't care. They blamed their employee. We told them the service were 'lousy.' They then cancelled my husband's appt and told us to find another doctor.
