Outstanding doctor! Very experienced , down to earth and cares for his patients.
Thank you so much for your positive review! We are thrilled we could help you and hope you continue to improve!

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.
Thank you so much for your kind words! All of the Coastal's Physicians strive to get their patients back to doing what they love and when we hear success stories like yours it makes that goal a reality! We hope you continue to stay happy and healthy!

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.

He is a very caring doctor and very good at what he does. Dr Gekht can can help you with your pain in a very relaxing way that makes you feel comfortable. I would recommend him very highly.

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.

Dr. Gekht is a consumate pain management specialist. He cares about his patients,listens well and is very empathetic.He is in a class by himself and has a great sense of humor.Recommending him to family or friends is a no brainer.

Great Dr. Recent Surgery was Painless with good results.
in Sarasota, FL |
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.

Kind, listens fully and takes the time needed.
in Osprey, FL |
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.
in Longboat Key, FL |
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!
