It is such a rarity to find someone in the medical profession who genuinely cares so much about patients and is willing to go the extra mile for them. I was a patient for a year before having to move away or I would be a patient for life. I've yet to find someone in my new town who is so understanding and helps me laugh off my anxiety so going to the doctor isn't so stressful, not to mention the vast improvement in my condition!

I’ve had asthma for many years and it is under control very well, but when I have an attack, usually brought on by flu or a cold, I need help quickly. Gus has a plan and is embellish to help me when I need it most! He’s an excellent listener and that is important in a medical personnel, because the patient knows their body better than anyone! I’m so glad I found him.
