Dr. Gastel has worked on both of my knees over the course of 20 years. He also was my daughter's surgeon (ACL tear) and cared for my elderly aunt (cortisone shots in her knee.) He is excellent, he has a great bedside manner, listens to patient concerns and welcomes patient input. He is highly skilled and an excellent surgeon. I recommend him without hesitation

My first visit with the doc was in late Sept. Saw him again early Oct to go over MRI results and was in the op room Oct 31st. I'm not a medical expert, but the PT is very satisfied with where I am with my progress 5 weeks post op. So I am confident the surgery went well. I'm not sure what kind of customer service should be provided in the medical field. Maybe they should smile more often, but I was there for one thing and one thing only, to get my knee fixed as quickly as possible. Doc gave me my directions, explained them to me in detail and handed me the paper with follow up instructions and to call if anything was needed. A simple follow up call would have been nice, but it didn't make a difference as I was focused on rehabbing. Overall, the follow up went well, all my questions were answered, and the assistant has been great handling all of my paperwork with TDI and HR for my job.

I liked the staff and was seen fast. As a nurse & a patient ,I have never had such a dispappointing experience with a doctor. He never had me walk to assess my gate, yawned half the time with out any empathy. Best he could tell me was to stay off my feet & nothing broken. Made me feel I was wasting his time. Went to Road runner , got much better care there. They checked my feet( both of them not just one) , walked out feeling much better . Would not recommend Dr. Gastel

Dr. Gastel Made me feel like I was wasting his time. I hurt my knee and he made me wait 4 weeks before getting MRI. He States that the MRI found nothing and there was nothing wrong, so he told me to lose some weight because it was probably arthritis . A year later, still in agony, I went to see Dr. Brett Owens (Awesome doctor by the way) and he found on the same MRI, that I had a meniscus Tear. I ended up having surgery. Don't go to Dr. Gastel you will be WASTING your time.

The worst bedside manner that I have ever seen. He talked down to me the whole time and actually explained to me that dosage means the amount of medicine that you should take at one time. Dr I have a masters degree. I need you to do your job not give me a grammar lesson. I will never go back there. Needless to say I walked out of there with no resolution.

I saw Dr Gastel for knee pain after hurting myself hiking. He explained my condition and was very patient with me. I would highly recommend him to anyone with sports injuries.

Very unpleasant experience, required to arrive 30 minutes prior to our appointment, only to wait 1 1/2 hours to get into a room and another 30 minutes before being seen by the physican, who barely touched my child, basically reco'd PT which we have already done (in total he spent approximately 5-10 minutes with us). Total disregard for my time, I left work 3 hours early, dismissed my child from school early for nothing! Not even an apology for delays. The most disrespective experience ever
