I have seen Dr Gacek for a number of years. I have a birth defect in my tight ear that leaves me with a very nasty ear infection usually about once a year. Dr Gacek has been able to tract me successfully when other ENT physicians have not. I do not let any other physicians treat my ear. I have tremendous confidence in his ability. You may call me personally at 251 209 7013 and I will tell you the full story why I fell so strongly about Dr Gacek John Stewart

I have Meneirs Disease and struggled with it for a few years. It was difficult getting treatment and a solid diagnosis, but then I was reffered to Dr. Gacek. Dr. Gacek is the best physician that I have ever worked with. He is polite, professional, and extremely knowledgeable in the are of Meneirs Disease, as well as other areas that I have had trouble with. I live roughly 3 Hours away from Mobile, and can personally say from experience that it is well worth it. He deserves 5 stars, hands down.

Dr. Gacek has been amazing. I highly recommend him for any ear issues you may have. Particularly for Ménière's disease.

I had the great misfortune of visiting Dr Gacek.He wouldn't let me explain my severe symptoms & repeatedly cut me off.He didn't address concerns & couldn't even tell that I was wearing a cochlear while he examined me!He only cared about prescribing me meds I was already taking-meds that put me in the HOSPITAL.When I told him he abruptly stormed out. The charlatan is crass & apathetic. He's a namedropping narcissist who spent a total of 4min in the room ignoring me as I pleaded for help. Beware.
