What People Say About Dr. Michael Gansaeuer, MD
Reply
This doctor completely abandoned and delayed my husband's medical treatment, and to this day, we have no idea why. We came to Dr.Gansauer desperately seeking answers to my husband's deteriorating physical and mental state. Dr. Gansauer regarded our case with arrogance and disdain. After being in his "care" for over a year without any diagnosis, prognosis, recommendations, or referral, he dropped our case without reason. He has been reported to the medical licensing board.
