Patient Comments (2)

My appendix had burst, so the St. Clair emergency room doc, Dr. Michelle Rider, picked Dr. Gerwel for me. I am highly satisfied with Dr. Gerwel. The surgery went well, I recovered well in the hospital and was discharged quickly, and so far I am feeling good at home. Dr. Gerwel is very friendly...more
