I was very impressed by Dr. Gebramedhin's bedside manner. He is compassionate and caring. He listened to me and looked at me while I was speaking, instead of having his face in the chart/laptop. He explained everything clearly and answered all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Gebramedhin.

Dr. Gebremedhin was very easy to talk to and he really took the time to explain everything to me. the Staff was very good also.
in Leawood, KS |
I believe Dr. Gebremedhin saved my life! I had been to numerous Drs & specialists for years and none of them caught my hyperparathyroidism. By the time I got to Dr. G my heart was irregular, my blood pressure was spiking crazy high, I had frequent anxiety and my brain felt like my thoughts were swimming through molasses. He made the diagnosis, referred me to a fantastic surgeon, and I could not be more grateful. High marks for Dr. G
Lenexa, KS |
The doctor's competent knowledge of his field, his ease of explaining the disease, his ability to make the patient feel that each of the patient's question is worth asking and answering put me at ease. I feel that my health and care are important to him, and I feel that I am in capable hands.
Lees Summit, MO |
My appt was at 2:40 and the nurse called my name at 2:40. I was amazed! Dr. Gebremedhin is very kind and patient. I just found him on the internet in 2017 and decided to try him. I have dealt with Hashimotos since 2005 and never had energy to do anything. Saw Dr. G IN 2017. He ran all kinds of blood tests and got my energy back to normal. I am so grateful! I definitely recommend him!

Excellent Doctor, was very understanding of my situation and listened to my concerns. He described any further plan very clearly to me.
in Olathe, KS |
Dr. Gebremedhin really listens and doesn't just go by the blood work. If I am having hypothyroid symptoms, he will try to tweak my dosages for my two medications to see if that helps. He takes the time to explain the biology behind hypothyroidism and is open to my questions.
in Lawrence, KS |
Dr. Gebremedhin is very knowledgeable with diabetes and adjusting insulin pumps. He understands the trials I deal with on a daily basis and is willing to be reasonably agressive in my diabetes and thyroid care. I cannot thank him enough for all he's done!.
Thank you very much for your kind words. We are glad to hear about your positive experience and will be sure and pass this along.
in Topeka, KS |
Dr. G always goes over my diet and exercise with me. If I need any changes, he always gives me some options with a detailed explanation and lets me decide which option I want to follow. With me losing weight and keeping my A1C under control, he encourages me to keep doing what I am doing, it is working.
in Louisburg, Le |
Dr. Gebremedhin was very informative and called me personally to go over my lab results which is something almost unheard of these days! Great doctor.

Their office is run very timely. Remember to get there early to fill out paperwork as there's at least six pages. Dr. G is very patient, friendly and seemingly very thorough.
