Dr. Gaetze misdiagnosed me with PCOS when I went to her to see why I hadn't gotten pregnant after 6 months of trying. She basically told me that she knew I had PCOS even if all the labs she ordered came back negative for the condition (which they did). She wanted me to go on a weird carb-only diet (I'm allergic to wheat), come in every other day for a month to get all sorts of hormone levels tested, and learn a new NFP method. A few days post-appointment, I saw her electronic notes from the appointment - she had invented symptoms and family history for me in order to match her diagnosis of PCOS!! I was horrified! I've never had such a negligent doctor! I guess if PCOS is your specialty, you make everyone look like they have it (even when they don't) and have them go through costly diagnostics that they don't need. (I got a second opinion - no PCOS - and was pregnant a month after Dr. Gaetze misdiagnosed me.) At least the clinic manager and nurses fixed my medical record quickly.

Dr. Gaetze is one of THE WORST doctors you will encounter! She is extremely RUDE, insulting, and single minded. She does not like to be asked questions, as she appears to feel it is an attack on her ability to treat you. Also, if her treatment plan isn't working for your condition, she will not change it. If you have others things to do in life (i.e. A job, kids), she is not who you want to see. Her wait times are RIDICULOUS!! You will wait over an hour past your scheduled time.
