They listen, I mean they really really listen. Most doctors you go to just want to pile on the medication and get you in and out as quickly as possible. Dr. Gershon and his staff take the time to ask questions, listen to the answers, then come up with a treatment plan to heal the injury and alleviate the pain. I see Cheryl Jeter once a week for trigger point injections and can't say enough amazing things about her. I will never go anywhere else and recommend this clinic to everyone!!!!

I would recommend this facility if you want pain MANAGEMENT instead of just medication

I love this practice! These clinicians are solution-based. They did not just throw meds at me and give up on my recovering from my pain issues. I feel so hopeful now. They strive to find the most reasonable treatment plan, and are very concerned about my quality of life. I would happily recommend these folks to anyone in need of not just pain relief but a future that does not require pain treatment.

Dr. Gershon is one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. As a structural engineer, I love how Dr. Gershon analyzes situations and figures out what is wrong and the proper remedy. He knows the top medical people around the country and can get you in with those experts in their fields. He doesn't just give you pills to mask or hide the issue. He looks at things completely and what's best for each situation. I personally have sent a lot of folks to Dr. Gershon.

In today's healthcare environment, doctors are pressured to complete their enormous administrative requirements while pumping patients through their doors. Not so with Dr. Gershon. He sat down, asked question after question, and listened. I was impressed because he's not looking to shuffle me out the door with a med. He's actually trying to see the whole picture and solve my pain issues with an array of solutions. Very rare these days! Thank you Dr. Gerson!

Dr Gershon is above and beyond the best doc I have ever seen in over 30 years of dealing with migraines (and have seen dozens of docs in that time). Now, thanks to his care and treatment with Botox for migraine, I am pain-free for the first time in 30 years! I HIGHLY reccomend this practice! In addition, his knowledge of nutrition and overall wellness is appreciated and admired. I want to fix the root problem and create a total wellness plan, and that's what he's about. Truly excellent care.

You only see Dr. Gershon once. Then you only see a NP or PA. His practice is about billing the most patients. Tries to get you to buy into holistic medicine and none traditional specialty treatments.
