PATIENT

Dr. Gaught is the best. She listens and truly tries to help problem solve my issues as conservatively as possible. She always gives printed step by step pictures of exercises so I don’t have to guess. I’ve been going to her for the past 3 years. Her medical assistant is always engaging and I feel like they both enjoy their job. The interventional radiology dept staff are also very kind and I’ve never felt like I was a number or an inconvenience.
