This doctor did my grandmothers surgery during the Covid crisis. I had concerns about how to best handle the follow up visit so I called the office a few times and asked that he call back. He was immediately irritated when we got on the phone and proceeded to yell and berate me. When I asked him to stop yelling at me he said "no because you're being an idiot" and hung up on me. Given everything thats going on this is beyond disgusting.

Dr. Gasho repaired both my shoulders, my husband's elbow and knee, and has treated both my daughters for ankle/leg injuries - felt like we had him on retainer for awhile. He's calm, listens to complaints, excellent diagnostician, explains everything, answers all questions and none seem too trivial. I've noticed that all the patients I encounter in his office receive the same treatment as I do - a friendly caring hello, handshake, etc. I also asked a couple of nurse friends about him and they all praise his abilities and treatment of both patients and the other staff at the hospital.

Dr. Gasho performed surgery to my mom's hip and resolved a series of fractures and breaks she experienced in 2018. He has an exceptional bedside manner and helps put seniors at ease with these significant, life-impacting events.

Dr. Gasho treated my elderly mother for two broken wrists (separate breaks due to falls within three months of each other)- he came to Suburban hospital in the evenings and weekends. Dr. Gasho is kind, caring, efficient and obviously an expert in his field.
