Dr. Gasch is a fantastic Dermatologist. My daughters and I have gone to Dr. Gasch for 10 years. We have found him to always be professional, knowledgeable, warm, and extremely friendly. He has always addresses our issues and follows up with blood work if needed. The staff is helpful, friendly and I recommend Dr. Gasch!
Great doctor!! I'm really surprised by some of the bad reviews here. My experience with Dr. Gasch and his office has always been great. Dr. Gasch and his staff have always been professional and respectful. I've never had a long wait to see Dr. Gasch for an appointment (quite the opposite) and I've never been treated rudely by anyone in his office.
Dr. Gasch himself is a fantastic doctor! Love him! He cleared up a problem I have been having - a genetic condition - that other dermatolgists had not been able to do anything about. I was feeling pretty hopeless about it until I went to Dr. Gasch. He's put me on some medication (which no other doctor previously had thought of) and monitors my blood work every 6 months to ensure that there are no adverse side effects - that gives me peace of mind. And my problem is fixed! He is really kind, empathetic and a very effective doctor. His medical assistants and PA's are great too.
I love that at the end of the visit, I get a printout of everything I need to do.
Overall, a great experience at this office. I would highly recommend Dr. Gasch.
Office staff is really bad! Not very friendly. Take forever to answer the phone. I have been put on hold 10 - 20 min at a time ?! Long wait time in the office for apts - even morning apts.
Aestheticians are good.
Dr. Gasch is a good Dr but he does talk really fast. A typical conversation with him leaves me confused. He has an assistant that types up what he says so you can read it. It is kind of weird.
At last - I'm starting to like my skin(!) – I like Dr. Gasch quite a bit, and have been seeing him for nearly 2 years since my insurance changed and I had to switch dermatologists. He's very personable and engaged, listens to my concerns and preferences, and works with me when it comes to alternate approaches and medications as I don't have much money and I'm super sensitive to medication side-effects.
Initially I had recurrent, frustrating problems with some of the staff (medical assistants and reception) but I liked Dr. Gasch enough that I didn't want to leave the clinic, so I spoke to a nurse (Erin, RN or LPN) who was very receptive and she notified the office manager who contacted me pronto. The ofc mgr was also highly receptive and agreed that the "issues" were unacceptable (lack of and mis-communications, sometimes unprofessional attitudes), and assured me the doctors would be notified and together they would work on the problems. My most recent visit was great, and the medical assistant (Jarrett) was terrific - all the previous problems seem to have been resolved. I really appreciate this kind of response to patient feedback.
Dr. Gasch took me off of a dangerous medication that was no longer necessary, AND now my skin is in the best condition it's ever been in - finally in my early 50's, I'm starting to like my skin! And that is due to Dr. Gasch's treatment.
Warning! – Warning: make sure you check out the Better Business Bureau Rating for this doctor and practice. I didn't and I am paying the price now.
Abel Island Princess – Dr. Gash was very kind to me, even during his cruise vacation, he helped me to solve a problem with my skin, I think he is very generous doctor. I'd just like to know your email address to thank you directly,. abelskywalker@yahoo
Great Doctor – I am a doctor myself, and I know a great doctor when I meet one.
Dr. Gasch is giving me laser treatments for scars on my face. After one treatment I already notice a difference. It is amazing. Other people have noticed the difference and made nice comments.
Also, he cured a foot fungus that I had for decades that many other doctors failed to cure.
I love Dr. Gasch as a doctor/dermatologist!

Worst Doctor I've Ever Seen – I went to see Dr.Gasch for Breastfeeding Thrush. He made the mistake of prescribing me medications that were not safe to take while breastfeeding. When the testes came back It turned out that he did the wrong test. He offered to do another one at no charge but at this point I was afraid to let him near me.
Dr.Gasch was rushed and had less then five minutes to spend with me, he was distracted and had trouble listening to my concerns and questions.
LOVE Dr. Gasch! – I have been seeing Dr. Gasch for several years now and he is the best dermatologist I've ever been to and I've been to several over the years. I have a couple of chronic hereditary conditions that have never been under control until I started seeing him. He is always very warm and willing to listen. I have recommended him to several friends and will continue to do so!
Not impressed. – Dr. Gasch seemed scattered during the appointment and what he told me did not match what his nurse typed up to give me as I left. He recommended only very expensive treatments without options or explanations. His nurse did not return my calls for a minimum of multiple business days, if at all. He offered to sell me over the counter products "that may be hard to find" only for me to find them at multiple drug stores with a retail price of almost half what Dr. Gasch sold them to me for. In general: disreputable and not recommended. I did give 2 stars because the expensive treatments worked at least. When my family found a new dermatologist and described the previous treatments as part of the medical history, the new doctor rolled his eyes and said "Let me guess... Dr. Gasch?". There are 7 dermatologists in this suburban town. How did he know which physician had led us down this path? Enough said.
