Patient Comments (13)
Irving, TX |
Dr. Gaman is fantastic. I am a new patient and honestly, not a fan of any dr. Dr. Gaman has completely put me at ease. I am very lucky to have found him.
in Irving, TX |
Went in for a simple physical, a few weeks later I got a bill for $600 that included some sort of testosterone testing and a bunch of lab work that my insurance company rejected. Then 2 weeks later I got another bill for an additional $150 that said I had a psych evaluation and something about alcohol missuse, my insurance also does not cover this sort of thing but he attempted the billing so it's falling on me once again since it was rejected. I went in for a simple physical, nothing else. Gama

I've been going to Dr Gaman for over 20 years and found him to be an excellent doctor. He will take the time with you if you inform him of any issues or have any questions. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.
arlington, tx |
I have been seeing Dr. Gaman for the past 3 years and I can totally agree about the comments claiming he's ready to leave the room very quickly . I found out lately that he resorts to unnecessary scans and X-rays for no reason. I also had charges that I disputed for procedures that weren't done. I hope this office is gonna clean out their act pretty soon. Otherwise, they will run out of patients.
Dallas, TX |
I was excited to find Dr Gaman when I moved to Dallas. I was so disappointed. He was so ready to hurry out of the room every visit that I wouldn't get what I needed, even when I'd already asked.
Irving, TX |
I have struggled with specific ongoing health conditions for a long time. They became a part of who I was. Dr. Gaman, his staff, and pharmacist make the perfect medical team (even with patient specific modified RXs). I can live a normal life- not being controlled by my issues because this is a doctor that's not after how many times he can get you into his office, but listens & is actually dedicated helping patients get the right medical treatments and gaining a quality of life that was once lost

Been going to Dr Gaman since 1995. Always able ti get an appointment in a non-emergency few days and never waited more then 15 minutes to see him or his nurse practitioner. His office has everything from MRI, physical therapy, pharmacy you name it. You could not ask for a better environment. You get what you need when you need it.

Dr. Gamen is to the point and gives you honest feedback. His office makes time for you when there is an occurrence that you need to see him in a timely manner. Me and my friends all have a huge respect for the way he runs his practice.
in Euless TX |
Dr. Gaman is one of the best doctors you could ever have. He is an excellent doctor he sure was to me he takes real good care of his patients recommend him to anyone and everyone God bless
in Dallas, TX |
Dr. Gaman has been my personal physician for over 20 years. I would highly recommend him as your primary care doctor. He is personable and gets to know his patients. It is comforting to me that when I see him for an appointment whether it is for a minor health issue or a serious one, he knows my history. He is not only competent, but is genuinely interested in medicine and energetically practices his profession.
in Irving, TX |
I've been his patient for 5 years and have not seen him directly. Only seen by his D.O. who is nice but I feel I need a medical doctor.
Dr. Gaman is an excellent doctor who takes care of whole family - best in DFW metroplex.
in North Richland Hills, TX |
He's been my PCP for 15 years. About as skilled as a physician can get in Family Medicine. He is a senior partner in the practice Healthcare Associates of Irving. His practice is a one stop shop for pretty much anything that can be ordered by Family doctor. They have full imaging center, blood lab, X-ray, Physical Therapy/Physical Medicine. It's a hospital minus the ER and beds. The PA's are competent and well trained as well.
