Dr. Gehret's Care Philosophy

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.
    Laguna Beach, CA |
    He is the best thorough doctor in his field. He doesn't send the bills, the company he works for does. It is up to the patient to verify if files were sent to your doctor. Don't be lazy and check yourself. Please review the doctors knowledge and competence, only. The staff is wonderful, also. He has helped myself and my husband.

    I first saw Dr. Gehret as a second opinion and have seen him for several years. He is very thorough and worked with my Dr. At UCLA to diagnose my problem without over medicating me and making many practical suggestions. Unfortunately, my new insurance does not have him on their plan so I'm in search of a new neurologist. Mary Clarke

    An excellent doctor! I visited Dr Gehret for an EMG. Having I visited another neurologist 2 years prior for an EMG, I was expecting the same experience. Dr. Gehret spent almost an hour with me and diagnosed the problem. He was thorough in every aspect of the exam. I HIGHLY reccommend him!
    in Newport Beach, CA |
    Dr. Gehret did a neurological study on my shoulder and elbow for my orthopedic surgeon. He promised that he would have the study to my dr. in two days. Two weeks later, prior to my surgery. My Ortho surgeon still had not received the study. However, he didn't have any problem submitting his $500 plus bill to me. I would not recommend Dr, Gehret at all.
