I am so happy I came to this Dr. and his staff! I'm upset for not going here sooner. He is super compassionate and caring and takes the time to listen and cares. Liz, his nurse made me feel welcomed from the start. She was very thorough and went through everything in great detail. They are an awesome team and they truly care about their patients and treat them like family!!! I've never felt so cared for. I know I will feel better soon and I'm in great hands!!!!

Seemingly passionate about his job, and compassionate about his patient. We loved this gentleman! Liz, Dr. Gaekes Nurse, was unbelievable! Extremely thorough with questions, answers, and overall knowledge. I am getting this Doc. for myself, as well as my Mother. Good people!
in Cincinnati, OH |
Dr. Gaeke has been wonderful. He was able to get me diagnosed quickly and has helped tremendously with the insurance requirements for the meds I have to take. I would recommend Dr. Gaeke to anyone seeking a GI. If only all Dr.'s were as kind, considerate and helpful as Dr. Gaeke. Thank you.
