Dr. Gamino\'s care is beyond reproach. He genuinely cares and shows empathy beyond what is normally seen by providers. His care, counsel, and wisdom helps beyond measure.

I had an appt scheduled and I was called b/c it needed to be re-scheduled. I had already been counting down the days for that appt due to emotional stressors in my life. I sent Dr. Gamino a message through the patient portal and he responded quickly and I was actually given an appt for just a few days later. Dr. Gamino was really great in helping me to get to the most important issue and formulate a plan with me to deal with it. I was able to put the plan in motion and with that, combined with prayer, the switch was flipped and I actually started to feel joy and happiness for the first time since a major surgery 1-1/2 yrs prior. All the other things that I thought were troubling just didn\'t seem to hold me down anymore. Dr. Gamino is excellent in helping me sort through things when I am feeling like I don\'t even know where to begin to sort them out. I don\'t do surveys, but Dr. G. was so immensely helpful that I felt I really needed to provide my feedback and let him know how much of a difference that appt made. Regarding my rating for cleanliness, all is well with the exception of the restrooms. I\'ve only had to use them a few times, but each time, the sink(s) did not drain well and they could use to be a little cleaner in general. I have an ileostomy and sometimes I have to take care of it in public restrooms and I\'m not very comfortable with using the restrooms at this facility.
