I went there for 2 very specific shots for my back. These 2 shots had worked in the past when I ran into the same problem that I am having now. I had to wait 2 months for an appointment. I made sure that my primary care doctor sent the paperwork over 2 or 3 times. Since Dr Gekht's office has problems finding out where your paperwork goes when it is faxed in.... The doctor never bothered to look at my paperwork prior to my appointment. <he had 60 days to look at it> He looked at my MRI's that I brought with me and said... I will set you up for injections. After I left his office I went to the front to pay and they told me that I was set up for a series of 3 epidurals. That is not what I wanted! I tried to call the office and deal with this matter and have been wasting my time for over a month now. Finally I get a call from Doctor Gekht's nurse who tells me that the epidural is the same thing I had before. So, after spending about 10 minutes on the internet and doing my research.. I know that she is WRONG!!! The epidural won't even work for my problem. I am fed up! Don't waste your time with the doctor or his staff. They don't know what they are talking about... and they will set you up with the set of 3 epidural injections for just about anything!

I really like Dr. Gekht. I had been to several Dr.s before I was referred to him. I had not been given a firm diagnosis up to that point. Dr. Gekht was very caring and concerned to find out exactly what was wrong. Peripheral Neuropathy was suspected, but not definitive. He referred me to a Dr. that he knew at the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Two days after he had told me that he would contact this Dr., I was shocked when I received a phone call from Mayo Clinic wanting to know when I would like to make an appt. I went to Mayo and got a firm diagnosis of small fiber neuropathy. I am now on a medication and pain management regimen that has improved my condition by 80%. I am very grateful to Dr. Gekht. I actually like my visits with him. He has a good sense of humor and is very caring.

Dr. Gekht has a terrific bedside manner; one of the best I've ever seen. He makes you feel comfortable and at ease with a great sense of humor. He is thorough, takes time to explain your condition, and is more than willing to answer as many questions as you may have. My husband and I are very happy with Dr. Gekht.

After visiting other doctors I was referred to Dr. Gekht for chronic back pain. Thanks to his approach to pain management I am able to function with very little discomfort. What I really appreciate about this doctor is that he always takes the time to ensure that I have no further questions and that I am comfortible with the treatment plan. Looking for a competent and caring doctor, make an appoint with Dr. Gekht!
