Both of my children had their well visits at the same time with Dr. Gatial. Every time we see him he is great with the kids and treats me with respect. We been with this practice for 11 years and have been overall very happy. However, there are doctors that don't listen nearly as well. It is a relief as a parent to find someone who is respectful and willing to work with parents.
dr Gatial has great bedside manner with the kids.
The nurse and doctor we saw were both excellent with my two-year-old daughter during our recent visit. They were very thorough, kept her at ease and engaged, answered all of my questions, and offered helpful tips relevant to the stages she is going through right now. Our visit was a great experience!
Dr.Gatial is unbelievable with the kids and extremely thorough. We would recommend him to anyone.
It was all great!
dr gatial. is very kind and caring doctor. we love him!!
thorough exam of my child and we were scheduled to come in quickly
We always wait for Dr. Gatial to become available for our daughters appt's. He's a real asset to CCP and the only doctor from within CCP that we recommend to our colleagues.
LOVE Dr. Gatial! :) We actually love most of the physicians in this practice. Have been going to you since my oldest was a baby and he is 21 now!
Dr. Gatial is always very kind and takes the time to answer all of our questions completely. We feel comfortable bringing up any concerns to him.
Dr. Gatial was fantastic. It was the first time we had an appointment with him. I will not hesitate to schedule an appointment with him in the future.
Dr. Gatial is amazing and I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and family in need of a pediatrician
Dr. Gatial stepped in to see my child unexpectedly. We were scheduled incorrectly at the Moon CCP facility and Dr. Gatial offered to see us without any hesitation. Even though we technically did not have an appointment with him, he spent the same amount of time with us as any provider we have seen in the past. My husband and I liked his demeanor and level of knowledge regarding our son's developmental stage.
Dr. Gaitial and the nurse were excellent. Very responsive, efficient and great care with my daughter.
Everyone takes very good care of our child from the friendly smiles and affection to greet her and the careful way they assess her health.
Dr. Gatial is an outstanding health care provider for our family and is always very professional and personable. We had an excellent visit.
Dr Gatial called me at home after hours the next evening to discuss my daughter' s blood work.
I had to bring my newborn in for weight gain/jaundice problems so I was very worried. Dr Gatial and the nurse that saw us before he came in were extremely kind, understanding and helpful when I was very worried about my baby. I couldn't have been happier with the care my daughter received and the time spent with is to talk things through to get her on the right track. Excellent doctor and nurse and I couldn't be happier with my choice in pediatricians!
Dr. came across as arrogant
I like this doctor a lot my only complaint is that he always seems to be in a hurry.
Dr. Gatial is excellent. As first-time parents, he makes us at ease every time we see him. We are very happy to have our child in his care!
We wish the doctor preformed our baby's exam prior to asking us questions. She was naked and screaming on the table as the doctor was asking medicinal questions. This made it very difficult to focus and we left without asking any questions because we were extremely flustered. However, the doctor was very friendly and focused.
Dr. Gatial went above and beyond expectations writing 2 letters to the insurance company to get a test covered for my son. He is very caring, thorough, and follows up. I would recommend him to anyone!
a sincere thank you for helping us through a painful diagnosis
dr Gatial is the best at the practice
This was our first visit to the provider, as it was the first newborn visit after discharge from the hospital. We were very pleased with the office staff, nurse, and doctor. I am looking forward to them caring for our baby!
Excellent experience, the doctor did a great job of putting my daughter at ease. She struggles sometimes with male doctors and seemed to have absolutely no issue with Dr. Gatial examining & treating her, which speaks to his wonderful "bedside manner". Thank you!
Very happy with care received!
Love the nurses; doctor was great
Dr Gatial is great. I will be scheduling all of my children's future visits w him.
Excellent Dr. who not only is competent but kid-friendly, communicates well, really does a thorough job and is very informative and helpful.
overall good visit for a well check up but the pediatrician seemed rushed to stay on schedule and did not spend as much time reviewing things
Dr. Gaitial is an exceptional Physician! Our son is very comfortable with his care and we appreciate his expertise and his personality. It would be far more convenient for us to select a new P.CP., one closer to home, but we really believe Dr. Gatial is that one-of-a-kind type of Dr. that can never be replaced; We are so blessed to have our son treated by him!
Dr. Gatial is very knowledgeable and thorough and spends time listening to me, and is efficient but mindful. The nursing staff is prompt and respectful and always friendly (I have had at least 5 different nurses and all were very kind to me and my son
This was our first visit w/Dr G. It was for my son's drivers permit physical. Dr G had great, age-appropriate, advice for my son.
We love Dr. Gatial and are so, so thankful for him! Although we've only seen him once before this visit, we felt so extremely connected with him. His genuine concern and care for our family and our daughter is palpable. My husband and I are hoping to continue our daughter's care with him!
Acknowledged that current treatment plan was not working and suggested alternatives
Always have an excellent experience at this office.
It was our first time seeing Dr. Gatial. He was wonderful with my daughter and sensitive to my concerns. He was very happy to spend time explaining things to me. Very appreciated. We will be hoping to see him again for future needs.
We LOVE Dr. Gatial! He is always sincere and thorough, straight forward and level-headed.
Listened to issues, responded clearly with suggestions. Overall very good physician.
Excellent office from top to bottom
everything was very professional and the doctor was very helpful
overall i had a very good experience
Very good. We liked the doctor. First time seeing him and he was very good.
Dr. Gatial was great. We did not wait long in the waiting room until the nurse called for us, and we were not waiting in the exam room for very long for Dr. Gatial to come in. He did a great job of discussing my child's development while my child was happily chatting away with my spouse/son's father who accompanied us to the appointment.
overall it was a very good experience with and we mostly go for this doctor if available ...
The service was good but I got the feeling the doctor was in a rush. He did not shake my hand and introduce himself when he came in like the other doctors before or at the end of the exam.
We are always very happy with CCP and find the staff and doctors to be friendly and caring.
very thorough and courteous. gave great info and asked plenty of questions.
Dr. Gatial was excellent and took the time to spend with my child.
Very happy with Dr. Gatial!
Dr Gatial is always very thorough and takes time to calm my worries!! Excellent physician!
dr. Gatial is amazing. I would recommend him to anyone.
I so appreciate the time Dr. Gatial spent talking alone with our son; he absolutely listened with concern and compassion. The receptionist was so gracious toward me while I was in the waiting room; a true jewel she is!
Dr. Gatial is a great Physician! He always is extremely professional and very thorough!
Dr. Gatial is the best along with his nurses!
