Dr. Gaff is wonderful! She is timely, efficient, thorough, friendly, concerned and ensures I get anything done that needs to be done. She listens carefully and answers all my questions and then asks if I have any other questions or concerns. She never hurries me. Debbie, her PA is friendly, helpful and efficient! I feel lucky to have them both.

My previous doctor retired at the end of last year. I moved to Dr Gaff because she was taking care of my husband. The [date removed] visit was my introductory visit with her. I was treated like a long term patient since I've always gone with my husband to his appointments. Dr. Gaff and her assistant are WONDERFUL. I feel very fortunate to be in their care.

Her agenda was to push the COVID vaccine and it made me very uncomfortable. I told her several times I was not interested. Moreover I was getting over the flu She never bothered to check my lungs or ask me about it. Instead I feel like she's super masked up and try to stay away. I did let them know that I tested twice negative for Covid before my appointment but that did not matter. I will not go back there

Dr. Gaff is very competent. I feel her bedside manner is lacking, however. At an appointment for a physical I want to have some "banter" time. I want to ask minor physical ailment questions that would not warrant a usual full appointment. I want to ask oddball questions and have a reflective answer.

I called to make my well check appt. and they couldn't schedule me for 3 months. After a month goes by, they call to tell me they need to move my appt. to an hour later. I told them that didn't work & the original time worked best. They acted annoyed and said I could either take this later time or wait 3 more months. How is this good customer service? They need to change my time for their now scheduled meeting but they won't be flexible regarding my schedule?

This provider has been dismissive of the issues I've brought up numerous times and seems to have no time for me. After reviewing the notes in my online account from yesterday's appointment and seeing that numerous things were written down as having been discussed, when in fact they absolutely were not, I will be switching primary care providers.
