The office assistants were professional and friendly. It takes me more than one visit to make an opinion about a new provider. This first visit went well and I feel confident that Dr. Gaston is very capable and so I wantto continue being a patient in his practice. My primary doctor, Nicole King, MD spoke well of him and I trust her judgment. I was not disappointed,

Dr. Gaston was great and humorous. He made me feel relaxed. He explained the procedure and made it easy to understand next steps. He was able to give me an appointment right away. However his registration secretary was rude. When Iasked clarifying questions about filling out the paperwork she seemed very agitated and boasted that she was the one that created the form, as if everything on the form should have been straight forward. Not the right personality to have when dealing with patients or sick people. However the African American lady was very pleasant and respectful. Definitely a keeper. In spite of his rude receptionist I would still refer people to Dr. Gaston.

I called the office twice and they still never followed up with me even though the receivedthe lab work. Its been 6 months and no reply or no follow up. Seems very unorganized and un patient caring type

While I liked Dr. Gaston a lot and would likely go back to him, I did find his office staff to be completely rude and unprofessional. The woman working the front desk was awful, very rude, and even asked me tospeak about my health problems in front of other patients in the waiting area. She also proceeded to tell me that I was wasting my time by being in their office.
