Patient Comments (9)
in Kerhonkson, NY |
I have been seeing him for more than fifteen years so I know him really well. I would not see anyone else. He cares so much and he tries real hard to help me every time. It is hard to find angels in the medical profession but I really do think that he is one.
in Delmar, NY |
This doctor diagnosed me with a rare brain tumor that 2 other neurologists missed. It was a miracle. He kept trying until he found the problem. He is a kind man and a good human being. I always think that is the best way to choose a doctor! I am a nurse and I know that doctors at big facilities like AMC are incredibly knowledgeable. They are the best of the best. This one in particular! He is brilliant! Trust me and see him once, then you will understand.
Saratoga Springs, NY |
Spent a tremendous amount of time with my 22 year old son and I. Called other doctors and thoroughly covered all possibilities.
in Accord, NY |
Dr. Gerber is intelligent but also very sincere. His experience and compassion came through even in the smallest interactions. His love for his work is easily seen through the love he shows to his patience. Highly recommend!
Albany, NY |
Saw twice and each visit was over 2 hours. And only saw him about 10 to 15 mins. Did not read my medical history which I provided records. Waste of time appointments.
in Schenectady, NY |
In short he gave up on us when it became difficult. Kept my fiancee waiting month after month after month with not a single call back & no weekly prescriptions given that were promised in December (4 months ago). We were about to call a lawyer on him for malpractice, but went to a different doctor instead. This new doctor did FAR more for my fiancee in one week than Dr. Allen Gerber EVER did in 9 months. All he was good for was instilling depression, stress, lack of treatment in the 2 of us!
Colonie, NY |
Diagnosed me without doing any tests, put me on medicine. Got a 2nd opinion... good thing I did because it turned out I had cancer and the medicine he put me on would have killed me after a few months. His staff is really rude on the phone and one girl screamed at me for no reason because i was crying.
Schenectady, NY |
Only interested in getting a kick back from drug company. He gets paid to do all these conventions about this drug he tried to put me on. He only looked at one MRI not even done by him and no other testing and tried to put me on this MS medicine. I went to a few other doctors for second opinions and found out I have another disease and this drug would have killed me. Scary stuff!! AVOID THIS DOCTOR.
Schenectady, NY |
Prescribed me Tysabri, without doing any testing to diagnose MS. He told me that Tysabri was the only medication out there for treating MS, besides chemotherapy.Insurance denied me, so BioGen donated the medication. He refused treatment unless his mark up was paid to him at his injection center only. I later found out he is the paid spokes person for this drug. I do not have MS, and further testing shows this treatment could have killed me. A dangerous money hungry man.
