Dr. Gerhart was very professional towards me. He answer all my questions, explained the procedure and went over all of my options. After 6yrs of trying to find a doctor to find out what was causing my problems Dr. Gerhart was the only one.

Dr. Gerhart is a patient-centric physician and a true healer. He is has a compassionate bedside manor and is passionate about his surgical techniques. I have been a patient of his for over ten years. He is empathetic about treating his patients, follows protocols and uses cutting edge technology to ensure longevity of successful healing. He does not rush to surgery and would prefer lifestyle change adherence from his patients. This is accomplished through education and follow up. After natural means are exhausted he will recommend treatment based on each individual case diagnosis. Personally, I trust this man with my unique situation and have sought medical care in NYC because the stigma that follows the marketability for higher education institutions. His knowledge, approach and staff are superior compared to any health system (Mt. Sinai, NYU, NYP, Columbia or Cornell) red tape in Manhattan and the cost is better too!

I saw Dr. Gerhart in Jan 2019 for a prior issue with acid reflux and a hiatal hernia. I had surgery about 10 years ago with another physician for this reason. The surgery was failing and Dr. Gerhart is one of the few Dr's in the area to do the repair. During our visit he assured me the surgery would hold this time, and I would feel much better. I had the surgery on May 1, 2019. My 2 week visit was yesterday and I couldn't be happier. since the surgery I haven't had to take 3-4 acid reflux pills. I was in no pain. He discharged me 1st thing the next morning. The staff and his surgical team were excellent. I Highly recommend Dr. Gerhart

Dr. Gerhart restored my quality of life. I was so afraid I’d never enjoy a meal again, but after a robotics surgery by him, I have my life back. He was extremely professional the entire process. It was easy to trust him and I’m thankful I did. I have no reservations when recommending Dr. Gerhart to anyone else. I hope his incredible surgical talent can change many other lives for the better too!

Best in the biz if you ask me. Everyone in the office was friendly, helpful, and thorough. My appointments went in a timely fashion with very little wait time. The doctor and his PA took the time to explain everything to me and made me feel I was in good hands. I feel amazing after surgery and healing went better than expected. I’d recommend Dr Gerhart to anyone.

Most patient surgeon I have ever met and I have been in healthcare 35+ years. I had to have 3rd surgery for faulty mesh, he did not put in. The original work he did was still clean after 7 years. I believe God guides his practice and his life ????

Dr Gerhart sat and listened to what I had to say about the disease I have. He is honestly the first physician that I have found that takes it seriously, it destroys your life. I am looking forward to getting a quality of life back with my husband and family after surgery. I know it is going to be tough after but I am a fighter and I have faith in God.

Dr. gethart was suppose to operate on me to remove my gallbladder, right before surgery when i was Ready to be brought in for surgery, I panicked and backed out... I never went back to him because I felt horrible. 4-5 years later I was admitted to the hospital for severe stomach pain, I put him down as a surgeon not knowing what his reaction would be. He came to see me and we scheduled the appointment, he was very nice and I was very gracious. He is amazing at what he does.
