Patient Comments (5)
in Palm Springs |
Dr Gaede charges a concierge fee for his clients- not sure why. Ordered over 40 tests to diagnose me and ended up completely misdiagnosing several issues , that were verified by me having to send blood to labs myself. Used profane language in an appt. in front of a family member, and smelled like cigarettes. Vastly shocked by his great reviews. I complained to Eisenhower....nothing was done.

left me in the lurch in the middle of treatment- went on " sick leave" and left no attending. you have to pay some " special fee " of 400 a year to " allow him " to be your doctor. eisenhower does not have any terms for that not does billing for this fee. so if you doctor goes mia, you just keep paying it for nothing. i asked for a refund...it was a solid nope. dr gaede incorrectly diagnosed me multiple times, milked my insurance, and was very inappropriate verbally. i have filed a complaint.
