Very disappointed with my mom's treatment and handling of such a delicate becoming severe surgery case because lack of attention and proper treatment.
in Hollywood, FL |
Long phone hold times if not disconnected. Nobody calls back if you leave message, bad service and customer service. Sometimes I had to goto office to get info because they don't ans phone or return call. Even if you arrive early you still wait hours for his 5 min bad bedside mannor office visit. He should just retire and go take photos all over the world.

The office is more concerned with getting the patients in and out than in actual customer service. They held on to a faxed request from my insurance co for more info (for my medication). They held on to the request for a full week, until i finally took off from work, went to their office and sat there until they completed the request. Also, the phone recording may tell you they'll call you back in 24 hours, but they don't. When I spoke with Dr. Gaylis about this, he was indifferent.
in North Miami, FL |
Dr. Gaylis was informed and proactive in my care. He suggested to do some research and become better educated in the treatment choices so I can be more proactive in my care.

For the first time I finally get a good doctor that listen and understand my conditions
Aventura, Florida |
Receptionist Rita needs to retire or get an attitude adjustment !!! Very rude and not very helpful
in Hallandale, FL |
Dr. Gaylis is very professional, and presents reality which might rub uninformed patients the wrong way. I found him to be empathic, honest, concerned, and truthful which I greatly appreciated because so many doctors avoid telling the entire prognosis, and do not confront when they should.
