He took the time to listen to me so well that he's even investigating why I'm getting kidney stones and possible medication that can prevent them, even though I saw him for my thyroid. You can tell this is his true calling, he cares and has a wonderful bedside manner!

I am a current patient of Dr Gebremedhin. What I appreciate about him and his office they are always on time and I never have had to wait for my appointments. Dr. Gebremedhin and his staff are very friendly. Always attentive and truly care. When I had questions I used my patient portal. I always got a quick response. I would recommend Dr. Gebremedhin and his staff everyday and anytime.

I had elevated A1C and was experiencing extreme fatigue. My primary care started metformin and was not seeing much difference in my glucose spikes even after 2 months. I liked the facts that Dr. Efrem educated me of the need to minimize my direct carb intake through switching to veggies and good fats from grains and sugar. He had also suggested me to do intermittent fasting. The best thing I liked about Dr. Efrem was that he prescribed me the CGM (FreeStyle Libre) that gave me a great insight into how bad I was eating. With informed control on the quantity and quality of the food that I have, with intermittent fasting I have my A1C down to 5.1 and almost 35 lbs of my body weight gone. Feeling great now. Recommending Dr. Efrem.

This medical practice has it together. There is little to no wait time. The staff from beginning to end seems to truly care and are all so cheerful. I am so happy my Primary Care physician referred me to Dr. G. He is very thorough and makes you feel you are his #1 patient.

Summary: Irresponsible, fatphobic, inflated time spent in room for insanely expensive billing. He was the first endocrinologist I met with after being Dx'd with diabetes. He told me I needed to start insulin immediately while we waited to find out if I had type 1 (I do) and he passed me off to his nurse to train me how to do injections. His nurse was very kind, but neither Dr G nor his nurse told me ANYTHING about hypoglycemia, how to recognize it, or how to treat it. At all. Handing a brand new diabetic a Rx for insulin without a thorough conversation about hypos--which are very common, but *very* dangerous and even deadly--is beyond irresponsible. No mention of Glucagon, either. At my second visit, he told me was that I'd gained too much weight because I'd gained back 10 of the 50+ lb I'd lost when I was undiagnosed and was basically dying of untreated diabetes. He called me obese (I was a size 10) and said I should really try skipping meals until I'd lost more weight again.

I moved from the area and have been unable to find another endocrinologist. I travel to KC for business often and was able to get in to see Dr. Gebremedhin for a same day appointment. Dr. Gebremedhin is very thorough and takes the time to review your history and ask questions.

This was my 1st visit to see Dr G as I was referred by my Primary. I was very impressed with all of the office staff from the front reception to his medical asst and Dr G. He was very kind and answered all of my questions and offered several solutions. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family. He is wonderful!
