Have you seen Dr. Gary Gurka?
Posted on June 14th, 2016
I have been a patient of Dr. Gurka for 26 years. After years of being in and out of the hospital for upper respiratory infections and asthma related problems, and taking antibiotics several times a year, every year, I had finally had enough. Doctors could not tell me why I was always sick and would get frustrated when I would ask. At the age of 26, I was referred to Dr. Gurka by a nurse friend. During my initial visit, he spent quite a bit of time just listening to me, asking questions, doing extensive blood work, and getting to know me. He discovered that I had an autoimmune deficiency and has been taking care of me ever since. Because of related problems due to this deficiency, I see many different doctors. Dr. Gurka has, by far, the best bed side manner you could ever hope for in a doctor and he truly cares about his patients. While he is no longer a primary care doctor and focuses on allergy and asthma issues, he is still involved with my care. After 26 years, he is still my favorite doctor and one whom I trust completely.

I certainly will not recommend Dr. Gurka to a friend or family. I waited forever to be seen the first time. He claims to be an allergy specialist even though he is not Board Certified. I was made to continue allergy shots for over 5 years after signing some forms with lots of fine print. I could not stop when I wanted to. I might have just been receiving water all these years the shots did nothing to my allergies. Stay away!

He was able to quickly diagnose a disease that other Boston doctors had taken a year to identify. His compassion and bedside manner was instrumental in gaining my cooperation in my own recovery.
