    If I could give six stars, I would. Dr. Gerber demonstrates a rare mix of skill and patience. I had a persistent elbow injury. Surgery was eventually required, which was not an easy decision for me. Through it all, Dr. Gerber was very patient my many questions, even when I changed my mind on him out of fear. I was amazed at how quickly he responded to emails or phone calls, and his calm bedside manner put me at ease. Outstanding skill as a surgeon. Six months later, I'm back training!

    Dr. Gerber repaired my rotator cuff and I not only feel fantastic, I healed very quickly. Post op pain was minimal and I have no problems.
