Verified Patient Reviews
I have seen Dr. Gawelko 4 or 5 times, I am extremely pleased with his knowledge, professionalism and personality.
Great experience. My 7 year old son felt totally comfortable asking questions and our mind was put to ease.
As always a great experience! Dr. Gawelko and his staff are amazing with my kiddos and always go anove and beyond my expectations!
Great visit. Felt very comfortable and have 100% trust in his diagnosis. Sean did a great job as well
Very professional and listened to me and understood what was wrong. Great bedside manner.
First visit with this doctor, everything went very well
The only reason I had to wait, was because I had paperwork to fill out as I was a first-time patient here. Very expeditious. Dr Gawelko was very professional and expeditious. His well-timed sense of humor made the appointment fun.
Staff is super friendly and the doctor is great. I was treated well and was seen quickly. Doctor Gawelko will take the time to listen to any concerns. Love this office and so happy I found them!!
Dr. Gawelko is a great doctor!!! he takes the time to listen to your needs and it never felt like we were rushed. We will be keeping him as our doctor.
Everything was great. Nice,friendly staff!
I was impressed by the office staff and Dr Gawelko. I was in and out in 45 minutes even as a new patien.
Office staff professional, friendly, and welcoming. Dr Gawelko is amazingly funny and relaxed yet professional. Absolutely on the ball; immediately reviewed test results and immediately got appropriate referrals.
Dr. Paul Gawelko is one of the best Dr.s I have experienced. A perfect balance of Knowledgeable, Professional, and Personable. Despite havig descent insurance I have personally avoided a PCP for many years and most traditional medical procedures for years...An imbedded earling brought me in, and he is the gift that keeps giving. Dr. Paul assumed him as a PCP within 24 hours upon release from the JC Lincoln diagnosed with an unexpected black mass on his right lung area...Dr. Paul immediately set up an appointment with Dr. Paul who coordinated care immediately with the Drs and info at Honor Health. He was able to put my young son, his wife and myself at ease despite such concerning circumstances.I saw Dr. Paul this morning-able to obtain an appointment in less than 24 hours for an infected Stingray bite that had been increasingly getting worse despite ER visit. I am now at home much more relaxed and assured and grateful that I not only have a Dr. I can get an appointment with, but a Dr. with wisdom and quality abilities -priceless.
I was very sick and was taken care of right away. I was in and out very quickly and had excellent care.
Dr. Gawelko and his entire staff is great! They are attentive and I never feel like they rush through appointments for me or my kiddos. Great office for the whole family!
Personable and professional an asset to the medical community. I rarely am willing to go to a Dr. and months ago had to go see a Dr. for a minor emergency, Dr. Gawelko was available on Zoc Doc. After 1 visit I made him my PCP and have already recommended him to family and friends.
Extremely well run office! I have been there several times and have spent no more than 5 minutes in the waiting room. Dr Gawelko is very friendly, listens to what you have to say, and is very responsive. You never feel rushed which is important to me. They have in house blood and urine tests. I received the urine test results minutes after and my blood test results were posted up to My Charts with the doctor's notes first thing the next morning. Very happy overall!
Very pleased with his and his staffs care. Kind, compassionate and caring. I feel they listen to me and actively converse. My husband is now going to Doctor Gwelko and is happy as well. Highly Recommended!
Great office atmosphere. I was taken back right away and the doctor was very friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend.
It was fast and the Dr was Pleasant I would recommend this dr he's great
He was very friendly, listened to me and knowledgeable. I was very pleased with him.
We arrived a little early so we had time to complete paperwork and were taken back very quickly after. Very attentive and professional. Would definitely recommend.
I'm asthmatic and it is important to me that I keep the same primary Doctor. Dr. Gavel lo has been in this location for several years and when I met him, he is worth keeping as a primary.
I would highly recommend Dr. Gawelko to anyone without hesitation. He takes his time with you and explains everything and has the greatest bedside manner!
He was great. Didn't try to shove medicine at me. Loved that he called me on my bs but still treated me with respect.
Very personable. Very pleasant staff.
Good experience overall. Doc and staff are first rate!
I had an embedded earing back and knew this was a situation I had to address right away. I have Dr. and needle phobia. Dr. Gawelko was compassionate, professional, with just the right dose of humor. I also appreciated his exceptional office staff. I would highly recommend Dr. Paul Gawelko.
Good visit. Doctor had time to spend with me today. I hope my medical condition improves.
My visit with Dr. Gawelko was pleasant. He was able to do a urinalysis right at the office, which made it fast and meant I didn't have to go somewhere else afterward.
It was great to find Dr. Gawelko, after my other Dr. retired. I would recommend him to everyone. And he has a great staff. So go to him and see for your self how great he really is!
Dr great. Office staff very friendly.
Doc was very helpful and did not beat around the bush. I like that. I felt completely comfortable talking with him.
Seemed like a good fit for my primary care. Assertive, but not aggressive; very straight forward, and he answered all my questions. The office staff was awesome; professional, welcoming, and very friendly too!
He was amazing!
A real down to earth doctor,, not ordering expensive tests or prescribing medicines that cost a fortune. I have found my primary care Dr.
I received an appointment quickly and at a time convenient for me.
Went very well and smooth good experience!
My first visit with Dr Gawelko was excellent. I did not have to wait long and when seen, he listened to my concerns. The office staff was also really nice. I will be back again, as I think I just found our family physician. Thank you again!
Dr. Gawelko was very nice although we felt a little rushed and didn't feel like he was very thorough. We will probably book one nots appointment to get a better feel.
Dr. Gawelko is really great. Super awesome with my son who is 6.
I waited longer to see then doctor than he took tge time to see me
Dr Gawelko is an awesome dr.
I drive a hour to see him, I wouldn't trust my family to any other doctor. He is wonderful!
Very professional and knowledgable. Didnt wait long at all.
I don't care for doctors but I must say this was a very pleasant experience.
I typically view going to the doctor as a chore that I am reluctant to get done. I took my son in for a sports physical and this doctor was great. He was funny, his med student (who was assisting him) was funny. Their personalities made the sports physical experience fun instead of something to dread. I'm not sure how that's even possible, but he pulled it off. We'll definitely continue to see Dr. Gawelko.
Great doctor and great staff
Very professional and I would highly recommend him!
I picked Dr Gawelko from the website and got lucky. I believe I have found the right doctor for me. He and his staff made me very comfortable.
It was nice
He is great 1st visit!
My visit was the best, all the people who work in his office are very kind and professional. If you are looking for a good doctor with great bedside manner go see Dr. Paul, best experience ever, I highly recommend him.
Great. Really like doctor paul
Very good and good time getting in and out. No wait time.
Spend a lot of quality time with both my children for their annual check up. 20-25 minutes per child. Super friendly and very likable.
Great bedside manner, Very professional.
I had a very good experience visiting with Dr. Paul Gawelko, he and everyone in the office were very friendly and helpful. I will have no problem making an appointment to see him in the future. Thank you Dr. Gawelko and your staff for making my first visit, a real pleasant one and will be seeing you again.
Very professional and thorough!
His personable, knowledgeable and down to earth manner put me at ease and made the initial visit a positive experience.
Great doctor, but e is also a good person.
found this doc when we moved and I am sooo glad we did! He addressed problems my other doc just arbitrarily dismissed. He is thorough, compassionate and patient with me and my children when I have to bring them with me.
he sucks he has no patience for anybody, i dont quite understand how he became a doctor. he does not explain nothing to you, pretty much he's in and out, only working for money and not for his priority, which should be his patients.
The most amount of time a doctor has ever spent with me. I was happy with the Dr. Gawelko's explanations and answers to my questions. I did not feel rushed at all, which is how I've felt at other offices.
I was very pleased.
We love dr g he is the best.
After waiting over an hour, the doctor barely spent five minutes assessing the three things I came in for. Upon leaving, only 1/2 of one item was resolved and the other two not at all.
Great, would go back for sure
A great, great doc with an even better bedside manner.
Great doc. Would recommend him to anyone!
I don't like to leave reviews or going to a doctors office. But I had(well thought I had a problem) and I felt I needed to see a doctor. My doctor that I go to I really wasn't comfortable with so I thought I would try someone new. Look up family doctors and Paul Gawelko came up. I was able to book and fill out paper work online. That was cool. I showed up was in the waiting room 5-10 and the doctor checked me out and prescribed me meds and I was on my way. Very thorough and professional. I will return and my family is going to go there from now on. Thank you Paul! Next time I hope it's a less embarrassing vist for me :)
everything went smooth Dr Gawelko is a awesome dr.
Always friendly, professional and thorough
Excellent experience .
Dr. Gawelko is that doctor you hope to find. We could not be happier with the care he has given our family.
Showed compassion, very caring. Will definitely return.
A qualified doctor, but I felt like I was at more of a walk in clinic rather than a family doctor.
Dr. Gawelko has a great beside manner and talks to you like a person and very respectful.
I have found the best doctor around.
Great Doctor, very attentive and always has great bed side manner!
He's always wonderful with Wesley and any of our family. Very responsive and listens to our concerns and offers great advice.
Comfortable, professional and efficient
It was the fastest and thorough dr appt I've ever had! I was in/out and home with my prescription in an hour! Unbelievable!
I was very happy with the visit. This was my first visit. I found Dr. Gawelko to be very personable and helpful. I am planning on making him my primary physican.
Very easy process! Thank you.
Great new doctor. I am glad I found him.
Heis a great dr.
My visits are always perfect. I never leave dissatisfied
I really like Dr Gawelko he is a really good Dr.
I always love my visit to Dr Gawelko. I never leave with more questions than I came in with. I am treated with respect as a person. I am a very satisfied patient
Quick and accurate diagnosis of an ear infection. He always makes Wesley feel important in the discovery process. He has good information for me as a mom that always helps the situation.
Dr Gawelko is an awesome dr.
Very nice office, great staff members and very professional. My doctor retired last year, but I definitely think I've found a new one!
I always have a great experience at Dr Gawelko's office.
Dr Gawelko is very efficient, has a great attitude, very easy to talk to, and I never have to wait for long to see him.
He was a very personalable doctor and very easy going. He is our new family doctor.
I am so pleased to find such a professional physician. We recently relocated to Arizona and had difficulty finding a doctor who could readily see us and treat us with such courtesy and skill.
Informative, answered questions, sense of humor. Good visit and I think I'll be glad he is my doctor.
He was very professional and great service
New doctor for me, second visit. He's a keeper!
It was wonderful. He was understanding and addressed my problems.
We love Dr Gawelko! He is a great listener and very thorough. His personality is always fun. He was able to get my 2 teenagers to open up, talk freely & joke around. We are very lucky to have him for our Dr.
Finally, a doc who connected with me in "bedside manner" and didn't take in some air of superiority. Good advice and no prescription! Generally, I despise the medical establishment and doctors at least as much as lawyers and have "fired" more than I can count. Normally only going to a naturopath or similar, I found Dr. Gawelko to be a bit of fresh air- chose him on a whim since he was a D.O. and close to me- was pleasantly surprised.
Very professional and helpful. I will definately see Dr Gawelko for any and all of my medical needs.
I had the appointment at 3:00 pm but the front desk nurse did not book me until 3:30 pm even showing her my appointment confirmations that I received in my email and phone texts... Really disappointing .... I don't know if this service is good enough to be recommended.... This is my second bad service with zocdoc...
