Dr. Gaulke is just a bit gruff at times and always seems to be rushing to get finished. [...]

The doctor is a good listener and very knowledgeable.

Professional, Good listener. Very good staff !

I was happily taken care of very well and I think this is one of the doctors who spent his time on me.He had questions and gave me time to explain.I also had some concerns which he put right and I am happy to have him as my doctor.

Everything went very, very well. Dousedaicon is an excellent group...

Mark dives in to focus on something he sees as a problem, or explains what I thought might be a problem isn't. He send me to a specialist if he feels its needed. I never feel anything but his full attention and my best interest on his radar. I thought the last internal medicine doctor was the best, now Mark has raised the bar. He never speaks anything but the truth and if he doesn't know something he lets you know and makes a note to look into it.

Dr. Mark Gaulke did not do a very good job following up on me and my medical condition despite calling his office several times.

Very thorough, timely and right to the point. I like that.

Always thorough, takes the time to explain things, easy to talk to.

Summary of visit and medications is inaccurate.

first visit with this provider and very impressed

Doctor is extremely intelligent.

Was first visit after leaving [...] so I had to wait few months to get appt. not all of my records had been scanned But I was very impressed of how everything was handled an am so HAPPY I switched to Dousedaicon. !!

The Dr was very arrogant and dismissive. He almost made me feel stupid for coming in. I would never make another appointment with him.

[...] Dr. Mark Gaulke was less than considerate of my sister's dementia in his speaking with her when he saw her. I had her seen b/c of unresolved hip pain. He was barely audible when speaking with her - she often looked over at me shrugging her shoulders. He didn't seem at all empathetic to her cognitive impairment. I certainly will never book again with him. [...]

this provider has no problem calling it how he sees it. he is especially skilled at calling you "fat" and congratulating you for losing half a pound since the last visit and needing a CPAP machine for what he calls "fat man's disease". this is the third appointment now same providet, Mark Gaulke, MD ,where I have felt shamed and uncomfortable seeing my health care provider. I cancelled one of my appointments because I was so embarrassed by his words I actually had my wife go with me to one of my appointments because I wanted her to witness this for herself. I cancelled one of my appointments and told the front staff the doctor made me feel uncomfortable and she suggessted I drop from Dousedaicon then because there were no doctors taking new patients. I told her no that would be unresponsible of Dousedaicon to drop a patient without finding or helping them establish new care with another provider.

Dr Gaulke is very straightforward and easy to talk to. And he has a great sense of humor!!

don't think me and my provider will get along to well. I'm going to give it a month and I'll see how it goes. My provider wasn't really to friendly and seemed very judgmental towards me.

I appreciate the care and devotion of Dr.s Gaulke and the staff.

Just take a minute to greet and look us in the eye, even if you are running late, us not the computer screen.

Doctor Mark is to the point and very knowledgeable.

Dr. Mark Gaulke and Dousedaicon Anti-Coagulation Clinic are the team for my recovery from DVT, [...]. They have done a great job in helping me in this process. Thank you.

Dr. Gaulke is great. [...]

My experience was perfect

I did not appreciate the lecture the doctor gave me for being late, which I wasn't. It seemed I was interrupting his ability to go to lunch. I did not also like that he told me to look up my condition on the internet. The visit was very unprofessional and I will seek a new provider.

Very curt, short, seemed like he would rather not be there - like I was a problem [...] I was told by office staff a few days before to fast for blood work - 12 hrs. before appt. so I did - doctor left the exam room after "explaining" what tests he was ordering (mole exam) with no mention of blood work - so I left the office - I'm not going to beg for something they asked me to prep for - very UNPROFESSIONAL in my opinion. I wont return if I don't have to.

my blood pressure was out of control when became a patient of Dr. Gaulke. He was able to get my blood pressure regulated within a month.

I feel I am in good hands with my Doctor. Very happy with him

Dr. Gaulke seemed to be busy and possibly trying to hurry out of the room. He would talk over me and was challenging my response to his questions. I got more info from the ARNP student in the room after he left the room than I did from the provider. He didn't even know how to issue me a referral for message therapy and didn't have any idea about insurance coverage as far as just general questions.

The Dr didn't listen to my concerns. I told him what issues I have had, and all he said was to "continue with what I've been taking ". I've been sick for a month, so obviously the meds that I had been taken, we're not working. he seemed put out, like I was wasting his time. [...] I don't go to a Dr unless it's serious, and he did not take me serious. I had to go to urgent care 2 days later cause I got worse. I had to miss out on half a day of work. I shouldn't had to go to another Dr to find out I had a lung infection!!! I WILL NOT GO TO THIS DR AGAIN!

Excellent experience.

I understand that Dr. Gaulke has a bit of a dry personality and I can accept that. However, sometimes his comments verge in the range between insensitive and [...]. He seemed hurried on my appointment day.

New prescription were called in immediately and referrals were set up before leaving the office.

trouble hearing this provider, as he speaks very low, and when one asks to have it repeated again, it is as if he yells in a very loud voice. Like he is annoyed. this makes me uncomfortable. However, I feel he is very intelligent, and is a knowlledgeable Doctor, in spite of my previous comment.

Great Doctor

Provider is difficult to talk with and doesn't make it feel like a welcoming environment to discuss health issues. This appointment I had a family member sit in with me and they also felt that the provider would rather be elsewhere and that the conversations seemed forced. Also the provider tends to be very soft spoken and half of the things he says are hard to hear. I'm in the process of trying to establish care with a new PCP.

I feel cared for. I know I can call anytime and get help. Thank you!


Very professional and compassionate care by everyone.

very good

I have the highest respect for Dr. Gualke and his staff. They always treat me well and are friendly and easy to talk to when I have appointments. Dr. Gualke is very professional but very approachable and in my opinion, the Man knows his business! I wish that I would have found him years ago! Dr. Gualke took on my Arthritis/Degenerative Disc Disease which is extensive and took quick action to get me referred to a qualified Pain Clinic and worked with me to scale down the narcotic pain meds that a Doctor, not in this system had prescribed several years earlier, and had my "Quality of Life" running as I had not imagined that it could! Dr. Gualke is the BEST!

I am very satisfied with the care I get from my provider.
