Long Beach, CA |
Dr. Gurskis is very knowledgeable and concerned with managing pain and treating you as an individual. He is very honest with side effects and offers multiple solutions. He runs extremely behind but his personal care is worth it. The lady who run the office are awesome! You can always call to see if he is on schedule or enjoy the great movies they always show in the waiting room.

This physician inappropriately holds you captive as an audience to espouse his political frustrations prior to addressing your medical concerns. I've tolerated this in light of the fact that I thought he was possibly lonely and needed additional time with his patients to meet his lack of social relationships. Nonetheless this type of bedside manner is highly inappropriate and in my opinion is malpractice at it's best. He is bigoted in his views, culturally insensitive and misogynistic.
