Richmond, VA |
Dr Gayer did not listen to me. She did not consider my history or circumstances surrounding my complaint. She was curt and dismissive. I had to interrupt her in order to even be heard. She gave a diagnosis and treatment plan in less than 10 minutes and never even explained what the diagnosis meant. I will not be going back.

I found Dr Gayer to be cordial and attentive. I had a suspicious mole, and she removed it the same day as my skin check.

Rude, abrasive, and talked over everything i said. She informed me her cancer patients were more important than me. MY ONCOLOGIST IS WONDERFUL. HE PUTS HER TO SHAME. HE HAS A WONderful manner. Perhaps dr. Gayer should take a course on how to have an understanding bedside manner or should i say examining table manner? I never want to ever see her again.

Horrible bedside manner - rushed, abrasive, curt, poor listener, gave impression of not caring - too many good doctors in this world so no need to put up with this! I will never go back - not sure how she is able to maintain a practice with her poor interpersonal skills.
