Don't Waste Your Time

Arrived 10 minutes early for my appointment, yet three people who arrived after me were seen first. After an hour of waiting I left.

A second chance

I fell off a 16 foot ladder several years ago in another state. I was a competitive powerlifter. The physicians in New Mexico did the best they could with their limited knowledge and equipment. They said I would never compete again or have full use of my left arm. Ibeen a campus police officer in the Texas Medical Center previously. I knew I had to the Medical Center. Dr. Gabel had me in surgery the following day. He performed another surgery on me later in the year. I was in therapy for 8 months. The following year I competed in another powerlifting meet. Thanks Dr. Gabel, I will forget you. The best doctor I have ever had.

Frustrated

This man has no Ethical integrity as a Physician. He pushes the pen and the play button on his recorder strictly for the insurance company. He has no compassion for people. If I cold give zero I would have. He is Fraud.

A Dr. I would definitely recommend

The Dr. was very nice, and did several cortisone injections in my hand. Very please with his professionalism. My hand felt much better for a few months, but like the problem normally does, it has started to return. I will probably need surgery in the long run, but I appreciate that he was trying to treat the problem conservatively first!
