I have seen Dr. Gervin and only have fantastic things to say about this amazing doctor. He correctly diagnosed me after being misdiagnosed for over one year. He was the only doctor who diagnosed me with facet pain from my lumbar joints. I was incorrectly being treated for a herniated disc (which I had but which was not causing the pain). I was recommended to have facet rhizotomy which I am scheduled to get and I can't be happier than my pain may soon be coming to an end! Thanks Dr. Gervin!

First of all very unprofessional. Wastes ppl's time walking in 2 hrs after scheduled appointment at every single 5 visits, without failing. Then once in consultation room he's dry and lacks bedside manners. Didn't have a goid feeling about him from the beginning and he has done nothing to prove me Otherwise. In addition, Lower back problems worsened after his recommendation.

WOW this dude is terrible!!! WOW I've never met a worse doctor in my entire life. This dude said that I don't need any help because I don't have cancer and to just take ibuprofen and swim when I've been taking ibuprofen for over 2 years. Stay away from this guy, what a joke of a doctor I swear. Waste of time. Oh and then he blamed my pain on my OCD saying that I was basically making everything up. Garbage doctor.
in Hollywood, FL |
He refused to look at all my notes and imaging from the VA Medical Center stating that "The VA does not pay enough". I was going in with a referral from my primary care as well as insurance (copay paid at t visit). He seemed bothered when I had my information when i explained to him that i needed a 2nd opinion in regards to all my notes/imaging is when he refused and i asked for my copay money back and he accepted. He is a jerk interested in workman comp claims probably because its easy money.
in Pompano Beach, FL |
I went with my husband to see him for an appointment. He was rude and told my husband that his back problems were because he was overweight ( which he is not). Other soldiers/employees from a military office in Doral have had similar outcome. I wouldn't recommend him to anyone. My husband has multiple impinged discs and have nothing to do with weight, only injuries he suffered serving his country. I was so mad I told the patients in the waiting room that he was a quack and not to go in.

Rude,dismissive,refused to explain anything about my MRI's to me.He actually told me to shut up when I asked questions about my reports and what was causing my pain.Don't waste your time.It's obvious he hates his job and patients.I would never let him touch me.

Great surgeon cured my lifetime back problem.
in Hollywood, FL |
I'm a MD for 57 y., that why I'm able to evaluate the Doctor's skills. My opinion, Dr Gervin has a high professionalism, a good heart, a large patience to the patients. All of this defines a high degree of credibility. Dr Moshe Vorona
