What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Gaddis, MD

LOVE LOVE LOVE Dr. Gaddis! Excellent bedside manner: warm, friendly, caring, explains everything, takes his time. Staff & location were great, and it was always easy to get an appointment. He took his time, never seemed rushed, but somehow managed to always be on time. Unfortunately, my migraines got too complicated & he referred me on to another specialist. I have great respect for any Dr. who can admit that they might not be the best fit for me AND has suggestions for one who is.

I love Dr. Gaddis. He knew right off the bat what my diagnosis was when my former neurologist kept telling me he didn't know what I was experiencing. I recommend Dr. Gaddis 100%. He listens to his patients and takes everything you say very seriously. He's definitely the best neurologist I've ever went to.

I just had my first appointment with Dr Gaddis and absolutely thought he was one of the best doctors I had ever met with. He spent a lot of time asking questions talking and listening to my issues. His friendliest and smile is infectious and I left his office with a smile on my face.

Worst Doctor I have ever been too. Extremely rude staff. Extremely rude Doctor. If you are seeking a correct and proper diagnosis do not go to this Doctor. You are wasting your time. I rate this Doctor and Staff less than zero.

First they cancelled my appointment without notifying me! I was told he was not in the building but when I told them I was not leaving he was. Dr. Gaddis was rude! Told me Dr. Kahn did a thorough exam and there was nothing he could do but pain management and PT. I found on my own great PT. She called Dr.Gaddis with her concerns, and as she said responded with no concern. Her concern is that I have compression in my neck and possible damage to ligaments or/and tendons holding my head to my neck
