Horrible bedside manner. He provided basic treatment when my labs were abnormal, but when my labs came back normal once, he acted like I was cured. I told him I was still having symptoms that were greatly impacting my life, and I wanted to explore what could be causing those. He simply told me that because the few lab results he ran came back normal, I was fine. Dr G implied that my symptoms of horrible insomnia and passing undigested food were "normal" and insinuated I was making them up. He's a real numbers guy, and follows a set protocol for each patient. If you don't present as a stereotypical hyperthyroid patient, he thinks you're just crazy. Thankfully, I have finally found a provider that ran another common thyroid test (TPO antibodies) which yielded abnormal results. Shocker! Don't waste your time or money with this man until he learns to actually listen to patients.

The doctor was patient and understanding of my frustration with my health issues. He took time to answer all of my questions and prescribed a course of treatment that so far as worked very well. His nurse has been prompted in returning calls and getting the answers I needed. Yes I would recommend this physician to my family and friends.

I have been an established patient of Dr. Gebremedhin for perhaps ten years. He and his staff operate a very efficient and caring practice and Dr. Gebremedhin has always listened carefully, conducted thorough exams, ordered the appropriate lab tests, and provided clear and detailed advice and treatment for my Type 2 diabetes. I have recommended him to friends who are also diabetic and expect he has given them the same excellent care.

I was amazed at the amount of time Dr. G took with me, his compassion, and how he actually "listened to understand" my issues. He explained things in a way that made sense, has a plan for me, and I truly feel there's now a light at the end of the tunnel for me. Thank you Dr. G.!

A little hard to understand partially due to my hearing. That said, as a 1st time patient, I felt like he spent a great deal of time with me listening to my background. Most importantly, he did not seemed rushed, nor did he have a need to impress me, bit of which impress me greatly. I have given a 7 due to this being my 1st visit. I am very encouraged.

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 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.
