Dr. Christine S. Gerber, MD says

I think hearing from other patients is important to anyone looking for a gynecologist.

Every patient and her experience is important.  I try to build long-lasting relationships with my patients.  The positive feedback is welcome and appreciated.  Yet, even negative comments can help me improve as a physician.

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.

after seeing Dr Gerber for 19 years, I will be looking for another doctor. Last 2 years I have waited almost 2 hours to see the dr. The front window staff is rude. Last time I was there there were 3 people in the lobby and 2 doctors working. I waited 2 hrs and finally rescheduled. Girl at desk made me an appointment, pushed the card to me and shut the glass window. No apology, no excuse. I was not in the least bit rude either. This has been a hard decision, but my time is important too.
My apologies for this unfortunate experience that prompted you to rethink staying with Dr. Gerber; however, this is not the atmosphere that she supports. Dr. Gerber left that practice in June and has started a new practice in Pawleys Island with Dr. Caroline Millan. Dr. Gerber is committed to serving the women of this community with dignity and respect ensuring personable care and a welcoming atmosphere so that your concerns and health needs are addressed in a comfortable and timely manner.

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!

Dr. Gerber says...

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.
