Los Angeles, CA |
The medical assistants are this office are completely unprofessional. After advising my 77 year old mother not to travel, Dr Gerken dictated a letter for my mother to submit to travel agents in order to cancel her trip. The first assistants said they could not print out the letter until after 24 hours. They took our fax and said they would fax. No fax ever came through - nor did one come through after the second assistant on the phone the next day claimed she faxed. 4 assts, 4 diff stories.

Great surgeon

Broke my ankle, Doctor quickly assessed my condition with on site X-ray, provided boot during appt, and gave clear direction and explanation of bone healing process. Office team was very helpful and efficient. Highly recommend.

Totally arrogant. This says it all: he double books his appointments, takes people in at scheduled appointment time, whether or not they show up early or late. So if you have a 9:30 appt, & show up at 10:00, you are still seen first, even if another person courteously shows up early for their 9:45 appt. Even asked why he double books & leaves so many people waiting; he totally ignored my question. Waited an hour, he spent maybe 7 minutes & left. No warm fuzzies that he even cared. How Rude!

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.
