As usual great experience. I am a retired physician and have has surgeries, injections and complete testing of my joints. I believe FOI has the edge in all of southeast United States . What many patients do not realize it is a teaching institute for international doctors and allied health care professionals. Their staff continues to grow with additions of outstanding doctors from across the states. Really no better place to go. Dr. Gasser is at the top of this wonderful staff.

Had 2 appointments with Dr Gasser. One related to painful knee next for painful elbow . These visits were scheduled by me for doctors evaluation. The 1st visitThe physicians assistant examined me , 2nd the nurse practitioner examined me. Each time Dr Gasser stood outside by the clerical table talking nonsense At no time did Dr Gasser enter the room or acknowledge my presence. I have no issue with PA's or NP. But initial consultation should be performed by the doc i scheduled with Never Again

He is an excellent surgeon. In the office and in the OR Dr. Gasser is truly a professional. He repaired my Lt meniscus and I was back in action in no time. He just repaired my Rt meniscus and I'm getting ready to be released back to normal work duties. Both of my tears were work related (firefighter) and everything from day 1 to release went smoothly.

I had surgery from a yoga accident, torn labrum and rotator cuff. I was very nervous about the surgery. Dr Gasser repaired it just like he said be would. Great job and I'm back to an active lifestyle!

Repaired torn ligament in elbow from playing racquetball. Good recovery and back to playing ball without problems! Surgery performed in 1999.
