    My husband was required to check into Dr. office 30 minutes prior to scheduled appointment. Then made to wait an entire hour after appointment time. Checked with reception 2 x's while waiting; only to witness another client check-in & be seen in less than 5 minutes...DURING MY HUSBAND'S APPT TIME! The Dr. spent less than 10 minutes. So total time was 1 & 1/2 hour waiting; less than 10 minutes w/ Dr., for a total time of 1 hr 45 min. How valuable is your time to you?

    Dr. Gaston had done my colonoscopies. I was diagnosed with diverticulitis. I suffered very painful attacks. Dr. Gaston removed the affected part of my colon. He is wonderful. I love his bedside manner and his caring attitude. He also has a wonderful staff.

    There was some confusion as to whether or not I had an consultation appointment or scheduled for a procedure. When we told Dr. Gaston that I had already prepped for the procedure, he changed up his schedule to perform the procedure. Something that happens rarely in today's world. Kudos to this gentleman.

    I had to beg him to go in and check my hernia mesh repair. All he wanted was to send me to pain management. Well he did. 2 hours and 45 minutes surgery. Yes it was messed up. So he went ahead and put a different mesh in me after I said no more. Being this is the third time. Well couple months later having problems again. Again all he wants me to do is pain management. He don't do what's best for his clients.
