Osceola, WI |
Dr Gemlo is THE best. Answered questions, managed expectations, and performed a successful surgery. Very personable yet profession bedside manner. Would highly recommend!
St Paul, MN |
Dr. Gemlo has missed Polyps in the past with excellent prep. Resulted in an extra large sessile in which he wanted to remove part of my colon. Decided to go to the Mayo Clinic for a second opinion, and they removed all polyps (4) without issues during a colonoscopy (NO COLON REMOVAL) I no longer trust and would not recommend Dr. Gemlo for anything anymore
