Rude!

I saw Dr. Gist because my own doctor in that location was out for several weeks. I had an issue that required me to have several visits with him as followup. He was rude, condescending, and downright mean every time I even asked a question. I am an intelligent, professional person and I was dumbfounded to be treated this way. One time my husband went to a visit with me and Dr. Gist was SO NICE, in front of my husband. I hope I never see that man again.

Rude Front Desk

Dr. Gist is excellent but his front desk is rude. They don't care if a patient has to wait an hour or more past the appointment time.
