Poor patient follow up. After multiple visits that lasted around 5minutes a piece I requested a phone call for results on a test the Dr suggested I have. I was told that I would only get an explanation of the results if I went in to the office, which is over 3 hours round trip out of my day, time I don't have. I let the staff know I could not come in and asked that he call me with results, which would take less than a few minutes to explain. Very disappointed, I expect a higher quality followup.

Dr. Gabel is truly exceptional, in getting me back to full life.
