Dr. Gerardo is one of the best doctors I can say that I have ever had. He is quick on responding to a message and listens and takes time at the visit. I recently was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I called on a Friday and they penciled me in the following Tuesday to get this under control. During this pandemic times especially they are doing what they can and I can say it's all been positive.

Dr Gerardo and his staff have provided excellent care to my husband. Dr Gerardo was kind and understanding during our visit. He showed compassion and patience with all of our questions and talked us through everything with kindness. His front desk staff and medical assistant are also always kind and happy to help with anything we need. We love coming to this office!

Shameful! My husband used to see him, but will no longer be. My first impression was that he was in a hurry and not very thorough. I had the chance to talk with him on a professional level today about one of his patients that ended up in my care, and he refused to collaborate. His words excessively arrogant ! As a healthcare professional myself, I would never want my loved one to be under the care of someone who refuses to do the best for a patient because he feels he has something to prove.

Horrible ! - Again ! 1st I right a negative review, and then get rebuked by the doctor for doing so. So we try to work through it - I changed my review to a more positive one, and now the same old stuff is happening. My wod of caution is this : if you have special needs, allergies to meds, etc. - GO SOMEWHERE ELSE ! He is lazy, arrogant, and stuck in his ways (his way or no way!) Office is terrible making arrangements for tests ! Be careful folks ! And hang on to your documents for proof !

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.

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!

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.

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.
