Dr. Gass is a very pleasant, engaging, knowledgeable physician who is one of the best doctors I have ever had the experience to be seen by. Understanding the intricacies of my condition and yet meeting for the first time he has given me encouragement and hope. His mannerisms is very calming keeping me at ease and at the same time his professionalism shines through. I highly recommend Dr Gass.

Dr Gass is one of a kind. He shows genuine interest in you, not just your condition. The wait time was minimal, and all tests were conducted professionally with great care to my comfort and breathing. He followed up with a personal call the next day. I also saw his associate Dr Patel while in the hospital and would also recommend him.

I have been Dr. Gass' patient for several years. IMy review is based on all the times I have been seen by him. After I relocated I was referred to him by my primary care physician because of respiratory issues for which I had been treated for about five years before seeing Dr. Gass. I had already been diagnosed with bronchiectasis and was on oxygen 24/7. Dr. Gass ordered the appropriate testing and discussed a treatment plan with me. Since then, I have seen him regularly. He has prescribed various medication which provided significant relief to me. Bottom line, I now only need oxygen occasionally. I am able to function normally without it except when I exert myself more than usual. I give Dr. Gass and his staff full credit for helping me to live a life without having to carry oxygen with me everywhere I go. I highly recommend Dr. Gass for any person who has respiratory problems. He is the best. '

Have waited 11 working days for a ct scan schedule. No word from his office. Cancelling my appointment with Gaas tomorrow. Could not trust his organization with any procedures after their lack of service.

I had a procedure for biopsy samples. Biopsy was completed 11/13/19 at 7:45 AM, lab had report completed 11/15/19 2:32 PM. The results indicated cancer again. Was not given this information until my appointment on 11/21/19. My appointment was at 10AM, had to wait far too long about 45 minutes. Doctor? was to send a refural to oncologist. As of 11/24/19 the refural has not been sent and when I contacted scheduling at Dr Gass office I was told that it could take a week. I tried contacting the Doctor. Could not even leave a message to help speed the process. Left a message for his nurse and was told that could take 24 hrs to get a response. I have an appointment for the oncologist 11/25/19 but without the refural they can't see me. The entire office staff that I encountered should absolutely no sense of urgency or empathy for my situation. I could not in good faith recommend them to anyone.
