What People Say About Dr. Gerson Florez, MD

Dr. Florez main goal was to convince me that what his partner said was true. rather than figuring out what was actually wrong. Not to mention anytime I would try to voice my concerns he would cut me off. I had a routine appointment with my pcp who immediately suggested an MRI and set me up an appointment with a different doctor. The amount of anxiety this has caused is totally unnecessary. I hope nobody else has to deal with this.

Dr. Florez is amazing. He takes the time to listen and makes his decision on what needs done first. I just had wrist surgery and was super nervous before hand and he helped me ease it down. It has been 6 days since surgery and my wrist/hand feels amazing. No swelling no pain. Just a little sore in some spots but not the same sore pain I had before surgery. He's one doctor I recommend to everyone. Plus his smile will brighten up day no matter what. Such a great doctor!

Dr. Flores was literally a life saver for me. When I called the orthopedic group in mon city they told me he no longer worked there. They would not tell me how to locate him. I spent a lot of time locating him and thought he was in Philly. Imagine my delight in finding that he was not that far. This young , caring surgeon has spoiled me. If I had needed a surgeon, I would have gone to Philly. Bless you, Dr. Florez?
