Dr. Gachassin is wonderful. He listens to you and you do not feel rushed. Great bedside manner! He did my gallbladder surgery back in 2006, so I came back to him for another surgery I will have in the near future.

Dr. Phillip Gachassin is top notch, friendly as well as highly competent. The surgery he performed on me went well and the staff at the surgery center held him in high regard. I would recommend him as a general surgeon.

My laproscopic procedure was easy, could've gone back to work the next day, but that would've been Saturday, lol. Good communication, nice surgical center in the same bldg as Drs office. Good communication in office as well as pre- and post-op!
