Brunswick, OH |
Day one after shot in the knee.....so far so good. Not painless but definitely better. It was great to talk to a doctor that actually listened
in Ft Wayne, IN |
Dr. Gemlick has successfully replaced my left shoulder. I have had absolutely no complaints. We are now considering replacement of the right shoulder. He is thorough, pleasant, and a darn good surgeon. I like his PA and Jan, also.
in Ft Wayne, IN |
Dr. Gemlick and his office staff are just so great. Shoulder/rotator cuff surgery is not an easy thing, but I can't imagine going through it without their skill, knowledge, encouragement and support. Most highly recommend him for your orthopedic needs.
New Haven, IN |
Dr. Gemick is the Best orthopedic surgeon. After two failed surgeries with a different surgeon and meeting with two other surgeons, Dr. Gemlick is the ONLY one that saw my issue, instantly at that, and now I finally have a stable shoulder again! Dr. Gemlick is an incredible, talented and skilled surgeon.
in Ft Wayne, IN |
Dr Gemlick is GREAT! At my appointment he took his time and explained what was wrong in terms I understood. His team was wonderful! Dr Gemlick is a very caring doctor and I would definitely recommend him to everyone I know.
in Ft Wayne, IN |
My visit to Dr. Gemlick was a very good experience. They were prompt, efficient, and professional. He answered all my questions. His assistant, Brian, was also very helpful as were his nurses. I would definitely select Dr. Gemlick again.
Garrett, IN |
He has been my doctor for years! Best care ever. Great Doctor!
in Fort Wayne, IN |
Best Doc I've ever had. Explains things thoroughly, is honest in his opinions, takes care of the problem, not just the symptom, and has done excellent work every time. As an athlete, he has kept me at the top of my game for many years.
in Corunna, IN |
Dr Gemlick has performed 4 joint replacements in the last three years. Because of his incredible surgical skills and perfectly picked team my recovery was quick and thorough. I absolutely recommend him to others in need anytime I have the opportunity. I might add that he is most caring and considerate.
Angola, In |
Very Professional, very knowledgeable. Gave us a good timetable for future addressing my shoulder
in Edon, OH |
Very good at explaining everything and making sure I am comfortable with what is being done.
Ft Wayne, IN |
Dr. Gemlick was very nice. He understood that I was looking for answers and was anxious about what I was going to find out. He ordered the necessary testing and forwarded me on to someone else in the practice that would most likely be handling my care.
Ft Wayne, IN |
I had a very good experience with two visits to Dr. Gemlick. He is very personable and asked lots of questions and also is patient and let me ask lots of questions especially at the first visit when we were trying to figure out the problem , which I actually had three problems in the same area !
in Churubusco |
I have total confidence with the care I have received from Dr. Gemlick. He is a gem. Love the personal conversation along with him listening to what I had to say. He remembered me after 6 years and I do appreciate that.
Dr. Gemlick came highly recommended to me a couple years ago when my left shoulder froze up. Recently my right shoulder/arm has frozen and I didn't even think of going anywhere else. He is hard to get into but that is simply because he is very good at what he does.
Fort Wayne, IN. |
Dr. Gemlick was very pleasant and very well informed. I feel safe knowing that he will be doing my knee surgery.
Coldwater, MI |
Everything I want in a surgeon - had knee replacement surgery and see Dr. Gemlick for follow-up visits every two years.
