Dr. Gerres has great bedside manners, she takes her time and is personable.
Doctor was incredibly thorough! She was very personable and explained the issue very well.
She is friendly, professional, and knowledgeable.
The front office's responses to my inquiries about your practice, via the phone, were very welcoming, knowledgeable and were a part of my decision to choose Dr. Gerres. I send a thank you to your receptionist. Also, your office is so very presentable. It is clean, adheres to the special care that needs to be taken re: the virus. Dr. Gerres is all that I was looking for in a physician. I prepared much information for her in that I submitted a written outline of my medical hx. including my feet issues. She read it all and had incorporated it so that when I came for my first appointment her examination was thorough and covered in a precise way all of my written concerns. After my visit, I had a need to calll Dr. Gerres back with a question. Her response was immediate. This quick response is so meaningful. The sheet given to me at the close of my visit is very well done and helps a patient to have before them all of the salient points of the visit.. Dr. Gerres' thank you to patients for choosing her is warm and shows her respect for our confidence in her. I will certainly be a responsible patient and will refer others. Yours is a great practice..Stay safe.. [...]
Doctor Gerres and staff are awesome!
Haha, maybe it's because I've been going to this practice for so long, but I do feel like they care about the patients and try to find a good solution to my injuries.
Appreciate the ability to have a conversation, share what I would like to do, and then discuss what is possible.
I appreciate the office team reaching out to me proactively to change my in office visit to telemed. The telemed worked great.
Dr. Osterman and his staff are the best! Would drive 130 miles to see him :-)
All is good.
Friendly and personable
Everyone was very professional. I only waited a couple of minutes before I was called back to the examination room. My doctor pinpointed my problem immediately. She knew exactly what was going on with my aching feet. My feet are now on the way to recovery! Thanks to everyone.
I've always appreciated Dr. Gerres' remembering my past visits and her attention to my problems.
