Dr Gatial is an excellent pediatrician! He is very thorough, friendly, professional, and knowledgeable.
This was a great experience for first time parents. We are very happy with our choice in doctors!!
Came across as condescending and didn't take the time to check her medical history.
Dr. Gatial has been such a wonderful doctor for my children. I recommend him highly!
PCP is a very reliable group of pediatricians and we are very happy.
We love Dr Gatial!
Dr Gatial is the most patient, understanding doctor that my son sees. I can call anytime and he never makes me feel like a bother. He genuinely cares about my son AND family.
dr gatial is the best pediatrician!
Dr Gatial was very attentive. He always makes my daughter (and me) feel comfortable. He's an excellent pediatrician.
excellent doctors very friendly staff always take good care of my kids .thank you ccp wexford.
Everyone is the office is friendly, caring, and shows genuine care and concerns for our daughter. We are so happy with the care she receives.
Dr. Gatial is wonderful and I feel so fortunate that my four boys are able to have him as their PCP. He is smart, great with kids, and routinely goes out of his way to provide the best possible service--most recently, he stayed at the office to ensure that he was able to get me test results immediately after they became available. This eased my mind tremendously. He definitely inspires trust--what more can you ask from your children's doctor?
Dr. Gatial was kind, thorough, and my son liked him.
Dr. Gatial is attentive and thorough . The nurse was kind and encouraging. the front office worker was helpful and organized
Thoughtful and thorough Doctor.
Great service, as always
Dr. Joseph Gatial is knowledgeable, respectful & kind.
Dr. Gatial was respectful and knowledgeable. He treated my daughter and myself in a way that made both of us feel comfortable. I feel that he addressed my questions appropriately. Of my recent visits to health care providers for my three children, Dr. Gatial by far provided in my opinion the most thorough care in a way that made me feel comfortable and satisfied with the visit. I am hoping that we will be able to schedule with him in the future.
This was our first visit and we were very pleased with the provider and nurse and office staff. Very prompt yet not rushed. Very pleased so far with our choice of pediatrician for our children.
Dr. Gatial was very attentive to our questions and concerns outside of the routine care. He didn't forget.
Excellent visit - most pleased.
Dr. Gatial is always friendly and calm and has a great demeanor when interacting with my young children. He listens to concerns and addresses them in an intelligent and friendly manner. The nurses are always kind and skillful at what they do (namely - quick at giving immunizations!). We recommend Dr. Gatial and his office to anyone who is asking for a pediatrician referral.
all good. our regular doctor no longer easily accessible, comfortable to switch to this doctor for my boys.
we love all the staff at CCP! Dr. Gatial is wonderful.
Keri was great. very friendly. Dr Gatial was very thorough! we will definitely see him in the future.
dr. gatial and staff as the best
very long wait time to see doctor, uncharacteristic of this group who is usually very prompt
The visit seemed to rushed. The provider seemed busy, just wanted to get done and on to thenext patient.
I love the moon office it is like a second home. Everyone is always friendly and my son loves to come to the doctors. he has never been scared even if getting shots. could not ask for a better group of people.
We love Dr. Gatial!
very happy at this office
Overall, the visit was great. Dr. Gatial always takes time to explain everything and is great with both of my children. He always explains everything and the nursing staff is very helpful as well.
I had several concerns at the start of this appointment and i was very impressed and satisfied leaving with all of my questions answered.
We love having Dr. Gatial for our children's wellness checks!!
Dr. Gatial is very thorough and attentive with both of my children. He is very easy to talk to and is always up-to-date on my child's health issues.
made us new parents feel so much better about our concerns. love this office
Dr. Gatial and all of the other physicians, the PA, and the nurse practitioner are all top notch! I am so happy to have them as our pediatric group.
incredibly thorough, trustworthy, great judgement, smart
I was pleased that the appointment was able to be scheduled in a very timely manner. Dr. Gatial, had never met my son, but he provided an excellent level of care, asked questions directly to my son, and was an excellent listener. Dr. Gatial was proactive in ordering follow up x-rays.
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
