Specialties

Dr. Gary T Gossinger has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Great Doctor. Friendly staff. Very helpful.

This is an amazing practice with a very skilled and knowledgeable doctor and helpful and courteous office staff. I don't understand why there are so many negative reviews. Maybe it's because more people tend to feel compelled to write reviews when they had a negative over a positive experience? A lot of the negative reviews appear to be in regards to people having missed appointments or having to pay for missed appointments. I have never been to a doctor's office that did not charge for missed appointments or canceled appointments less than 24hrs in advance. The forms that I had to sign at Dr Gossinger's office explained the fees for missed or late canceled appointments upfront. Short appointments (as in 15min) are available for medication checks and new prescriptions but I found that I could easily make a longer appointment (such as 45min) if I was having an issue that I needed to discuss. It sounds like some people are upset because they make a 15min appointment and are then late for it and don't have much time with the doctor. I like this policy because then the people who arrive on time do not have their appointment times pushed back because somebody is late. I have 3 children and such a busy schedule that I don't have time to sit in a doctor's appointment for hours because somebody is late and still wants their same amount of time. The Dr reserves a set amount of time for each person and I really appreciate that I do not spend much time waiting for my appointment at this doctor's office because patients that are very late for their appointments are encouraged to reschedule. I have even seen the office staff offer to reschedule patients for the same day. During my appointment time I have found Dr Gossinger to be a great listener and to be very concerned with my health and welfare. I have always agreed with his diagnosis for me and recommendations. He is willing to make medication adjustments and changes if necessary. I find this to be a warm, friendly, and helpful office and I hope that Dr. Gossinger's patients that I frequently talk to in the waiting room and have only positive things to say about him consider writing reviews.

Ava, his wife/secretary, is his worst problem. I used to see this doctor several years ago and by the recent reviews I've read, I see nothing has changed. This is the wordt medical practice you will encounter .

Two Stars

This is the WORST practice that I have ever been to and I have been to many! They do not care at all about their patients. I called and literally begged for an appointment and Ava was rude. But of course, she is always rude. I have never in my life dealt with someone that is so rude. I called 1 time, once, to cancel an appointment because I had a true emergency with one of my children. When I called to reschedule the appointment she told me that I would have to pay a $50 cancellation fee. I paid the fee, but then she called me back and said that they no longer wanted to see me in their practice. Aside from her rudeness, whih is the # 1 issue for me there, all Dr. Gossinger does is sit down with you for 5 minutes with a prescription ad and rewrite all of the meds that you are on. He doesn't try to get to know you or see if there is a deeper issue.
