Patient Comments (3)
in Ocala, FL |
He came in to the office right on time. My mom had been experiencing tremors. He was warm, confident, reassuring. He spend almost an hour with us, assessing her condition. He ordered a couple of new tests and some medications and told us to follow up. He said to call him right away if any new symptoms arose.

Dr Gaya lost his temper at us last time we visited his office without reason. We were only asking what all the 5 tests results were that he had put me through in the last month. Later, we found out at the front desk that he had not read the results and one test had not even been in the file yet. He became angry and stormed out of the room without another word. He came back after about 10 minutes and still was very short with us. We didn't raise our voices ever so we don't know his problem.

I don't think that he paid much attention to me. He was texting to someone wile my appointment. Would not look at the paper work I brought in with me. Sent me out to get more tests before he'd see me again. Looking for a new Dr now. Don't waist your time seeing him Caz he sure won't waist any time on you!
