Everyone was very nice and attentive, my first time here, I was kinda of afraid of coming, for this issue, but the doctor was very friendly, and asked me questions, which I answered, he made me feel very comfortable. Which was helpful, and he didn't wear a white coat, like many people I have a fear of the white coat. It was a nice experience with someone I had never met before. Thank you, Dr. Christian Gastelum.

Getting into see Dr. Gastelum takes a long wait time for the appointment, but the wait it ABSOLUTELY worth the wait.
December 12, 2017
I got the apt time I wanted, I was taken back to the exam room on time. the physician took time to talk, show me lab results, discuss medications. At all times, I was considered a partner in my care and treatment and that feels terrific
November 28, 2017
He was a great provider and explained things thoroughly. The only issue I had was that it took over 2 months to get to see him. He had a very long wait time for appointments. Other than that, it was a great experience.
November 14, 2017
Dr. Gastelum always talks to me about my blood work done the week before the appointment. If he sees something not normal he will tell what to do to fix it. He introduces new medicine to me that will benefit me for my diabetes. I have been his patient for over 5 years and I will continue to go to him!!!
