Dr. Christine Gerber, MD
I seek to provide the best GYN care possible to women at all stages of their lives. I've been a GYN in the Pawleys Island area for 19 years, after graduating from Jefferson Medical College and practicing in the Philadelphia area. I'm a member of Tidelands Health board of trustees and a winner of the South Carolina Hospital Association's Blackmon Award for Patient Safety. I'm also a member of the South Carolina Birth Outcomes Initiative of the SC Department of Health & Human Services, a team member that won "Baby Friendly" accreditation for Waccamaw and Georgetown Hospitals, and a member of the team that earned Childbirth Center of Excellence designation for Waccamaw Community Hospital (the first hospital in the state to obtain this distinction). In addition to providing full GYN care, I also offer esthetic care for her patients.

I have been seeing Dr Gerber since she first started practicing. I highly recommend her. She has helped me through some really tough times and she has always been compassionate, knowledgeable, and attentive to my medical needs. I am excited about her new practice and I am happy to follow her there. It's quite a drive for me since I am in Carolina Forest but for a great doctor it is well wirth the drive.

I would highly recommend Dr. Gerber. She and her staff were all wonderful to work with from beginning to end. She was very kind and really listened to me about my issues. She spent a great deal of time with me since this was my first visit with her. I feel confident in saying that I trust her judgement and will be seeing her again!
Pawleys Island, SC |
Finally! A physician who will sit with you in the office and listen. Thankful for the recommendation to Dr. Gerber, who I found to be receptive, compassionate and very competent. She personally kept in touch with me from initial appointment through my post op visit and I am grateful for her skill, kindness and ease of connecting with a health care provider. I would highly recommend and she will be my doctor for as long as I live in this area.

This is not my experience with Dr. Gerber but rather a review for her new practice. The reception/ front desk staff is incredibly rude. No sense of professionalism, acted annoyed and rude. Sorry you're being bothered to do your job. Awful. Find another women's CARE practice because this office doesn't offer a thing.
in Wirtz, VA |
Office was quick to get me in. Staff was friendly, professional, efficient and knowledgeable. Dr. Gerber was awesome. Listened, compassionate and informed. Ordered tests that uncovered a hidden problem. She may well have saved my life!
in Myrtle Beach, SC |
Seeing Dr.Gerber for the first was a very pleasant experience. She answered all my questions and gave me a thorough exam. I will definitely see her again.
in Georgetown, SC |
Dr Christine Gerber is a superb doctor! She listens to you, is very thorough in her exams and is ever so easy to talk to and get information from. The best GYN I've ever been to and I've been seeing her now for 14 years.
in Hemingway, SC |
The wait time is bad not going to lie, but Dr. Gerber is so personable and has a wonderful bedside manner that she is easily forgiven. She has delivered 2 of my children and been my OB for 12 years. The nurses have always been very helpful and nice. Highly recommend her and her staff!
