Dr. Gerres was efficient, patient, and thorough in her diagnosis. She gave me a print out with clear instructions on how to heal my sprained toe. So far, I'm getting better...I will see how it looks during my follow up in 3 weeks.

Dr. Gerres is very nice. My issue was basic and resulted in a recommendation for a professional shoe fitting (sorry Zappos!). The staff were personable. The office could use a little TLC.

She was super kind and warm, offered thorough explanation and documentation, and even "MacGyver'd" up a temporary solution to give me immediate relief. I'm so glad I found her and although I don't want to have too many reasons to need more visits, I have no apprehension whatsoever about returning.

Just not for me. Provided insurance card information over ZocDoc then upon arrival, had to complete 5 separate sheets of information. I was on my lunch hour because these doctors don’t keep hours for working people and the extra wait wasridiculous. Doctor was not helpful (the wait was longer than my visit) and no new information on my condition provided. Will never return.

My wait time was longer than expected due to being notified when I arrived on time for my appointment they did not receive the paperwork I completed via ZOCDOC. I was also informed that ZOCDOC does not have their current forms.By the time I completed the paperwork, again, I was escorted to the doctor's office 24 minutes later.

Dr Gerres has been great. I've seen her many times over the past 6 months and she is always warm and reassuring. I was rather alarmed when she said I needed surgery to fix my ankle fracture - and it didfelt like a very lengthy process - but several months later it has healed marvelously and I'm glad I followed her advice.

I had an ingrown toenail a year ago, Dr. Gerres stated that she would remove that portion of the toenail and take the prevenative measure to make sure it would never grow back. However a year later, the same toe ishaving the same problem and in the same area. Having to pay for the same procedure twice, frustrates me for sure. Dr. Gerres was nice and very friendly but I would recomend seeing a different doctor if you are having toenail issues.

My husband and I have used this practice for a couple of years now and been very happy with the care we've received, so when my 11-year old daughter developed an ingrown toenail and a wart on the bottom of herfoot, I felt comfortable taking her here. Dr. Gerres was new to us, however. At the first appointment, I found her bedside manner to be a little reserved for my tastes, but at subsequent appointments, she warmed up considerably and developed an excellent rapport with my daughter. Her work is great--she is quick and skillful. I also find her instructions to be thorough and easy to follow. My only complaint is that I wish she worked more than 2 days a week at this location! (Btw, the support staff at this office is fantastic--super pleasant and efficient.)

I was seen almost immediately by Dr. Gerres who completed a fairly routine procedure quickly and efficiently. She also took the time to talk to me about other issues that I thought appropriate to raise with a podiatrist, gave me adviceand wrote a referral for another type of doctor. She was very pleasant and patient.

The entire visit was excellent, from front office staff to nurse to Dr. Guerres herself. Mostly clean facility (floors could use some scrubbing, though) and state-of-the-art scanning of my feet for orthotic fitting. No more goopy plastercasts!! Dr. Guerres also asked a few times if there was "anything else" I wanted to know or ask about, which is great for those of us who go in to the Dr. but don't always remember all the things we wanted to find out or have checked out. Well done!
