I ran out of meds three days early and failed my UA test, Dr Gabriel then increased my dose when I explained why. This was exactly what I needed and did not run out early the following month. He then dropped me ftom the program. ......why would he up my dose to correct the problem then drop me...now I'm black listed and nobody will accept me !! I've been on this medication for about five years and thanks to this guy I'll have to deal with my chronic pain for the rest of my life. ...thanks doc...

I've been to a few pain doctors and upon moving to San Antonio, Dr Gabriel was recommended to me. Without this awesome Doctor, I would be on disability or crying everyday in pain. He is very pleasant and caring, always asking how my pain is. He doesn't leave you with not enough meds to make it through the month either. He has tried lots of pain relieving treatments as well. I have been through everything there is at my age. Office staff are wonderful to me and always pleasant. Highly recommend!!

I recommended dr. Gabriel to my buddy and mother, my buddy as well as myself receive injection to help with pain. I lost my insurance years ago and have to rely on the va. However I have insurance again and plan to come back to dr. Gabriel.

Dr. Gabriel has helped manage my pain in my neck and back to a degree that now other doctor has been able to since 2001. I've been seeing him for about 5 years or more. I recommend him to friends and family all the time. His injections are spot-on and he gives you enough meds to help your pain without overmedicating you or giving you something that just doesn't work well. Best doctor I've ever had.
