My mother was in a 7 hour procedure with Dr. Gum. When surgery was completed he didn't have the decency to come out and tell the family how it went. Instead they sent my mother back to the neuro ICU and the receptionist said it went well. When we returned to the floor I had him paged and he would not return our call. The next morning, despite all of the staff knowing we wanted to speak with him, he reviewed her chart and left again without speaking to family. Horrible experience.

Dr. Gum has been trying to get me some relief for my back pain and rt hip and leg pain. He has been very patient, thorough, and is trying everything. So appreciate all the efforts that he and his office has gone to for me.

Dr Gum was communicative, explained not only my issues (with MRI to show causes) but what he wanted to do in surgery. He also showed me the appliances he intended to insert (titanium cage). He was caring and open.

Dr.gum was wonderful from the first time we met him. He was very compassionate and listened intently to my husbands issues. Every time we went in the office staff was friendly and went out of their way to help us. He worked with my husband in several treatment plans to get him to the best he could be.

I would NEVER recommend Dr. Gum to anyone I care about. After 2 surgeries, I seem to have damage to other parts of my body. He is abrasive & at times left me feeling bullied. I was shocked at the absolute lack of compassion He is all business. I feel like I was put in a situation that may not have been the best for me. Be on the lookout for his nurse assistant Portia. She is a nightmare. She will chew you out for not sitting in a chair when you have sat there all day.

Dr. Gum & Co.wins the award for the worst experience I have ever had at a doctor's office. He refused to listen to my symptoms & ??s. I had to argue for him to do anything for me. He refused and then just left the room. I called the next day to try to get answers to my questions. His boss said she would get back to me with the answers after consulting Dr. Gum. She never did. You're not a candidate for surgery. WHY NOT? I am still suffering and they just say see another doctor. AVOID HIM!
