Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gehret "Dr. Gehret's feeling is that the best treatment starts with the correct diagnosis. Also, our team's philosophy is that patients come first. In this day and age, everyone is busy with their own lives. Putting patients first means that patients will generally be seen on or very close to their scheduled appointment time (avoiding long waiting times in the waiting room), having access to the doctor by email 24/7, getting patients with urgent problems in for an appointment in a timely manner.

Dr. Gehret's office staff was rude and discourteous. They do not take responsibility for errors they make.

Could not have felt more comfortable and confident . Dr Gehret is a warm and caring doctor. I would not hesitate to recommend him. I travel 2 hours from Palm Springs just to be able to see him.
