Patient Comments (9)
in Saint Louis, MO |
Dr. Gerardo as well as his nurses and front desk person are all wonderful. They helped me when I was going through a difficult time and I will never forget their kindness. He is also a very thorough doctor and really takes the time to listen and give the proper treatment or recommendations.
in St Louis, MO |
My 97 year old mother's doctor rarely saw her, usually had a nurse practitioner meet with her, which bothered her. He has since become a virtual doctor, & dropped his patients. Dr. Gerardo has assistants, but he also takes the time to meet with her every time she's there. He's great, particularly with seniors; she has typical aging issues, but always says she's fine, to him. He's wisely scheduled the wellness tests for her, later this month. Reassuring, and anxious for the results...

I am a female who was having trouble battling weight loss and depression. My regular doctor was on maternity leave. Dr. Gerardo was understanding and made me feel ok about what I was going threw. But the best part is he has followed up with a game plan that has been working awesome! Highly recommend for male or female!

in Ballwin, MO |

in Centreville, Il |
Dr. Gerardo is patient, compassionate, and very knowledgeable! My husband and I are extremely satisfied with the level of care we receive. Our Doctor for life!
O Fallon, IL |
Great bedside manner and is very compassionate. Didnt feel rushed like I have at with previous providers. Will be going back! Got me off medicines I didn't need. Thank you
in Arnold, MO |
he is so puffed up as a doctor, its like his way or the highway attitude that comes across. yeah not a good bedside manner at all to big for his little britches.. he don't care about your thoughts of the matter.. he needs more years and a beat down before he becomes a good doctor that truly cares.. seems like your a number all about the $$$ with this guy.
in Granite city Illinois |
He is good in the beginning. Three years exp with him. Getting the umbrella of care in place. After that. Forget it. He is too young to understand dynamics of family with a geriatric patients. He makes errors. Worst is his ego. Which has no place in Healthcare.
