Dr. Gestring is a very intelligent and knowledgeable doctor. He is up to date on current medicines and therapies. He listens, provides feedback and most importantly he doesn't give up on his patients! He is the best psychiatrist I have had in the St. Louis area. He has helped me tremendously. Thank you doctor G!!!!
