Dr. Gerber is extremely knowledgeable and a great physician
in Mount Pleasant, SC |
Poor experience, some of the tests preformed not needed or explained. When I left, I was no better off than when I went in. No one explained that the cost would be $1200. I would not have gotten them had I known up front. Explanations given were confusing to say the least.
