Dr Gaeta took the time to listen to my concerns and incorporate those and to his list of possible suggestions. He was very empathetic and his treatment has been working so wonderfully for me. I feel like I have my life back again. I am once again able to concentrate at work, do physical therapy as well as get things done at home.

He listens very well and took extra time explaining the diagnosis and treatment to me. Excellent use of diagrams and models really helped me understand. He was not rushed!
