This doctor has scarred me for life from ever being able to enjoy sex without pain or a UTI. He never took the time to thoroughly explain the procedure or what the complications could be. I was told I would be back to work in a week but couldn't function for 3 months. Here it is 5 years later and I am still dealing with pain. I could not even urinate on my own for 3 months and had to wear a bag until I begged to self cath. Again, none of this was explained to me.

Dt Gauta and his staff are outstanding! Very professional. Took my mom to see him. He was so patient and answered all her (and my questions). Never felt rushed. He really cares. LOVE their patient portal!! You can email the doctor and staff questions and they respond. No being put on hold. No lost messages that I've experienced at other offices. Their follow up is great. Gail, Dr. Gauta's nurse is amazing. This is how all offices should be run.

Been going to his office for many years. Have had several procedures, have had zero issues. Always takes the time to answer my questions and address concerns. Never had a problem scheduling appointments. I've had to have appts rescheduled due to his surgery scheduling but have always been given at least a week's notice. No issues at all. One of the few surgeons I've met with both expertise AND bedside manner. He, and his office, are awesome!
