Dr. Alan C Gatz has the following 2 specialties

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

worst ever

I do not understand why this man became a doctor. I spent three hours in the Twinsburg urgent care office with severe back pain. The doctors assistant and nurses seemed scared and intimidated by him. He did not have the time to even talk to me or look at the area where the pain was located . He had the assistant administer shots to my back that did nothing. After three and a half hours I finally asked to talk to him, when he came in to the room he was very rude and confrontational and explained everything in medical terminology that I could not understand. I do not understand why University Hospitals would put this man in an emergency setting. I will never recommend the Twinsburg urgent care to another person.

This Dr made me feel worse than when I arrived. He was very abrupt and condescending. I would never want to see him in the ER again.

You will end up in a pine box......

Very poor bedside manner for an ER Doc. Treated like I was an annoyance for coming into his ER and making him work. Poor diagnosis. Given medication for Aniexty when I had a serious medical condition .
