      I was dealing with an ankle condition for 3 years and seeing multiple doctors without any relief or answers in sight. I happen to be referred to this medical group by a friend and luckily enough to of found Dr. Gerken. Dr Gerken diagnosed my condition and did the necessary surgery to fix my ankle that had been troubling me for years. He was very compassionate, listened to all of my concerns, and answered all my questions. I can't thank him enough for helping me get back to a healthy lifestyle

      He fixed my badly broken leg very well. No major problems during my recovery. Was very compassionate to me during my hospitalization and early recovery. Very nice staff at Newport Orthopedic Institute in spite of how busy everyone is. Wait is understandable.
