Myself and my have treated with Dr. Gaitan since 2007, and he has gone above and beyond in providing the best medical care to our family. His bed side manner in caring for our family, particularly my mother who was under hospice care exceeded anything I could have hoped for during her final days with us. Our heart felt thanks to he and his entire staff!

Incredible physician!

I've known Dr. Gaitan for over 15 years. He's cared for me, several family members and now many friends. He has always been right on target and is very knowledgable, professional and caring. He has been rated Top Doc and also one of the best doctors in St. Louis for a reason— he lives up to that. I highly recommend Dr. Gaitan with no reservation.
