I saw Dr Gammel for about 6 months. He put me on pain meds that literally does nothing at all. After telling him and his nurse practitioner,Angela Morrison the meds was not doing anything at all I filed a grievance against him thru my insurance company. Shortly after I filed the grievance he found a reason to discharge me from his clinic. He claims it was drinking alcohol is why he discharged me. Surprise Dr. Gammel, I don't drink alcohol at all. So that tells me he wanted a reason to discharg

Dr Gammel was the anesthesiologist for my total hip replacement. I was understandably nervous prio to surgery. He came to see me in pre-op and was so kind and calming. My surgery went great and I understand from the nurses on the floor that Dr Gammel called several times to check in my pain level. I highly recommend Dr Gammel.
