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.
