My first opinion of Dr Gekht was positive. He took time with me, listened as I described my symptoms, he seemed to understand. He described the course of treatments he would follow. That was the last time Dr Gekht spent time with me. He prescribed a series of epidurals, I had 2 shots each time I went to the surgical center. That was the only time I saw him. Follow ups were with his nurse. All she did was reread reports these visits were useless. Once I got the shots before the MRI. Inept!

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.

Great Dr. Recent Surgery was Painless with good results.

Dr. Gekht is the perfect example of how a doctor should interact with a patient. He is polite, fun to talk to and very knowledgeable. He clearly explains medical procedures and patiently listens. I have had great results with the medical procedure he recommended.

I have never met anyone like Dr. Gekht before. He is the most understanding and caring doctor that I have ever had. He speaks to you on your level, not down to you. Dr. Gekht has never looked at his watch or seemed to be in a hurry and stays with you for how ever long it takes. We plan to move back to NY but as long as I need pain management, it will always be with Dr. Gekht.

I HAVE BEEN A PATIENT OF DR.GEKHT FOR SEVERAL YEARS AND MY EXPERIENCE HAS ALWAYS BEEN EXTREMELY FAVORABLE. HE IS VERY THOROUGH, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND HAS A GREAT ATTITUDE TOWARD HIS PATIENTS. I PUT A GREAT DEAL OF TRUST IN HIS OPINIONS AND EXPERTISE. A VERY FINE MEDICAL PRACTITIONER.

Kind, listens fully and takes the time needed.

I have used Dr Gekht for more than 8 years. During that time he has treated me for chronic pain in my neck and in my lower back. He has given me great long lasting relief in both areas. He and his staff are friendly and compassionate, especially the doctor. I highly recommend him.

Dr. Gekht is kind, warm, funny, caring, and good at what he does!
in Sarasota, FL |
Not enough stars on the questionnaire to rate how well Dr. Gekht listens to &e then answers my questions or concerns. He takes as much time as necessary to explain my medical conditions using the appropriate amount of time. He is a stickler for keeping his appointments on time but I've never once felt rushed (how he makes this work I have no idea but he does). I have degenerative disc disease so spend too much time @ Coastal & am very qualified to rate him & the office. Physician extraordinaire!

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
