I have nothing negative to say in regards to Dr. Gade. Me and my family like Dr. Gade and he has taken very good care of us. We are comfortable with talking to him about any health concerns we have. Dr. Gade listens to our concerns and includes us in decisions that relate to our health. We are very pleased with him as our PCP.

I feel Dr Gade and his nurse assistant are always very friendly. I'm very glad I chose Dr Gard after Dr Brasile retired.
