I have been seeing Dr. Gierl for over 15 years for my psoriatic arthritis. She has been indispensable in getting me back to as normal as I can be. When I first started seeing her, I could barely stand up straight. With her guidance and prescribing of proper medicines, I have only occasional discomfort - usually from my own forgetfulness to take my medication! I started seeing her because her clinic was near my employer. Now that I have retired, I contemplated switching to a doctor nearer my home. Ultimately, I decide that a 30 minute drive to see a very qualified doctor I was already confident with was much more desirable than trying to "start over" with a more convenient doctor.

Dr. Gierl is incredible. She listens extremely well and answers all questions thoroughly. I feel she really cares about my well-being and what is going on in my life and uses that to help me best manage my arthritis. At each appointment, she makes sure that I understand any changes etc to my treatment. Sheis always very patient.

She is too busy to see new patients. You need to wait 3-6 months to get an appointment. In that time your condition would be worse.

She is calm, thoughtful and a skilled practitioner. She listens and asks questions to be sure she understands what I am trying to convey to her. She doesn't minimize OR overblow my situation. These are important things because my husband and I need to have a talented rheumatologist in our corner. And she is. Autoimmune disease is a family affair. After about 15 years of care my previous MD retired last year. We were concerned about finding a new one. We both have confidence in her skills.
