Dr. Gerres is the most fantastic doctor I have had the pleasure of seeing. I have been seeing her for a year, trying various treatments, and her knowledge and genuine care for her patients is unmatched. I have utmost confidence in her capabilities and am healing as well as I could hope to because of her. The medical team from the phone, to the front desk, to the exam room is always pleasant, prompt, and welcoming. Thank you all so much for everything you do.
She was great!
The Doctor recognized that both my feet had the same issue however it did not mean that each foot were going to cause me similar problems in future. Also I was given added advice on solving a issue in my foot care that was not the reason in which came for the visit . Very helpful it was.
Dr. Gerres is kind, efficient, skilled and informed. I have seen her before and knew that she would be the right person for my particular need with regard to this toe problem. I was right. Thanks!
