Dr. Gerdes has always treated me with the utmost professionalism. I've had him as my GP for many, many years. He's kind, caring and extremely knowledgeable about my issues and problems. He refers me to someone else when he sees the need. I'm having problems with my spouses medical problems and he listened with such concern and said who to see next. I couldn't ask for a better doctor.

Dr.Gerdes is a great asset to the clinic. He is always very professional, but not to the point of "stiff" he is very personable, therefore his patients can feel more relaxed rather than uptight and uncomfortable. I have always been that patient with white coat syndrome, well not with Dr. Gerdes. He is a God send to his patients.

Dr Gerdes is a phenomenal physician. I've been seeing him for years. He always has empathy for my problems and concerns. I was recently do with breast cancer, but that wasn't the reason I was there for the appt. He listened to all my concerns related to that new Dx before he examined me for the condition I made the appt for. Most providers just rush you out without concern for anything other than the condition you are there for. Most of the time dismissing any other issues. Please keep him as staff in your clinic. He is a Godsend for his patients.
