I was having knee problems, had MRI and was referred to Dr. Gehrke. Scheduled appointment, filled out all of their forms online, no prob. Arrived at the appointment and had to fill out half of the forms again. When Dr entered room it was obvious he hadn't reviewed these forms I filled out twice, wasn't familiar with my file and hadn't looked at the MRI. He poorly explained issue and then recorded his dictation as I sat there in the room. Complete waste of time. Don't waste yours going.

We waited over 40 minutes past our scheduled appointment, he never once looked me in the eye and instead talked into his recorder the whole time. He spent approximately 5 minutes with my son and told me he could just be carried around. He is 3 and in daycare, not possible.
