I have seen Dr Gertler on and off since the 1980's. He is always through, respectful, and on target. He is conservative about interventions and direct about what to expect. he looks at the whole person instead of limiting himself to specific body parts. Spends the extra time to listen!
in Glen Burnie, MD |
Excellent doctor. He will always discuss the pros and cons of medications and procedures. He may not appear to be "warm and fuzzy" when you first meet him, but he's actually quite down to earth. Plus, he speaks to you like you're an adult.
