My visit was absolutely wonderful! From the moment I was greeted at the front entrance until I left, I felt very well cared for. I expected people to be rather impersonal because of the current health scare. I couldn't have been more wrong! Every single person I came in contact with was friendly, caring, and cheerful! Exactly what I needed! Dr. Gerdes listened attentively to my symptoms and genuinely understood my fears. Many thanks to the outstanding staff - everyone was fabulous! I am home. I am safe. I am cared for!
