Patient Comments (5)
in Brownsville, TX |
My experience as a patient over the past several years has been excellent. Always on time, polite and very courteous, never hesitates to answer questions with full explanations. His experience has become invaluable, not only for myself as a patient but for the community as a whole. His medical associates refer patients without hesitation. His staff is equally knowledgeable and courteous.

Dr Gaitan I believe is a good doctor. His staff needs some classes on customer service though. It's sad that he tolerates their lack of hospitality. Maybe it's all about the bottom line. Overall, staffing needs an upgrade.
San Benito, TX |
Very poor bedside manner. Staff makes a lot of mistakes. I went without medication for my disorder due to office staff error. There needs to be more options in Brownsville.
Harlingen, TX |
went to see doctor and had a very bad experience doctor was very contracditing everything i said didnt matter to doc what doc said was always the right answer doc gave me generic meds instead of brand name had a bad outburst of seizures
in Brownsville Tx |
I recommend dr Gaitan because the way he tells the truth of the condition of the patient for me is a challenge to get better for the following or next visit with him ?? or at least maintain, The only thing that his staff needs is to smile, besides that, I think everything else it's casi perfecto
