I was well pleased with the results of my surgery. When facing a difficult decision and diagnosis, see Dr Geer, who will take the time to explain your options and ease your mind.

Dr. Geer did my colon resection recently. He did an excellent job on the surgery. He has treated me with the utmost respect and care. Always has time to answer my questions. He was my second opinion for the surgery and I knew on contact, he was the one! Can't stress enough how great this man is!

Dr. Geer is the most compationate physician I have EVER had to operate on me. His bedside manners are so loving and he is such a gentleman. I highly recommend him to any age and any illness. He is and angel!
in Crossville, Tennessee |
Dr. Geer is probably the most dedicated and passionate surgeon I've ever met. I was bleeding to death due to complications from a Whipple Surgery. Dr. Geer never gave up on me. Two other doctors from Vanderbilt suggested to my wife that she was delaying the inevitable, I was bleeding to death internally, and they couldn't find the leak. They actually told my wife she should pull my plug. My wife refused and although I was virtually a lost cause, Dr. Geer wouldn't give up. Thanks Dr. Geer

Didn't show up for emergency surgery until 4 hours later after coded. It was an emergency on the weekend and he was on call. The ED had difficulty reaching him.

Dr. Geer and his staff are incredibly unprofessional. They refuse to return calls and make you feel like you're just a number. Go see another surgeon.
