Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Gerres was very attentive and understanding during the visit. She made sure that I felt comfortable with the information she provided before I left.
Not impressed. Will go not go back.
This was the best medical appointment I have ever had. Check-in was a breeze. Dr. Gerres actually came into the room early. I highly recommend her practice.
She was great!
Loved it! In and out very quickly and efficiently. Hopefully will be feeling better soon but I'm confident that her advice was sound and will prove to be effective.
Dr. Gerres and everyone I interacted with were excellent. The appointment was quick but thorough, and she made sure I understood exactly what my next steps were.
Dr Gerres thoroughly explained my options and practiced excellent patient engagement to help me make a decision that best fit my needs. I had no wait and excellent service from the office staff. I highly recommend!
Love her. She's very approachable and knowledgeable.
D.r. Gerres was very friendly and answered all my questions and very knowledgeable. Wait time was less that 15 minutes. Staff was very friendly. Would recommend.
I've never seen a podiatrist before, but Dr. Gerres made me feel very well taken care of. She took the time to explain to me what she was looking for and why the treatment she recommended would help. Her staff were friendly and professional.
Jennifer is very professional, nice and efficiency Doctor. Highly recommend to visit her if you have any foot problem.
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 did felt 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 is having 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.
Dr. Gerres was very kind and thorough. We discussed my concerns and Dr. Gerres explained my treatment options. The office staff was very friendly too.
I've had an appointment with her in the past as well, and she's always been very good in all ways. She's thorough in her medical examinations and explains anything a patient needs her to. I did not have to wait almost at all, which was nice for someone who works.
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 her foot, 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.)
Very personable and understanding. Her instructions were clear and delivered in a way that was not overwhelming.
Dr. Gerres was professional and certainly knew her stuff. I'm so glad I went in because my foot feels better already Just from the wrap she gave me and the stretches she went over with me.
Dr. Gerres was pleasant and helpful. Took care of my problem quickly and expertly.
Very nice & Professional. I will probably see her again as I am in search of a new podiatrist since mine retired.
Professional and friendly
Dr. Gerres is: Pleasant. Thorough. Knowledgable. :)
She is a very nice doctor.
Every thing about my about was very pleasent! Dr. Gerres and her staff we very nice, professional, and knowledgeable. It was a very fast and smooth process.
She delivered some not very great news in the nicest way possible.
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 advice and wrote a referral for another type of doctor. She was very pleasant and patient.
Very knowledgable and easy to talk to. She gave great advice and welcomed questions. Professional staff and relaxed, easy going environment.
She's great! Really efficient, explains everything thoroughly and doesn't mind lots of questions. Made me feel comfortable and healthy. Very reassuring.
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 plaster casts!! 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!
A well organized and professional office. I felt welcomed and well cared for.
My visit was great. They Dr. Gerres saw me right on time. No waiting way past when my appointment was scheduled. Everyone in the office is very friendly. Dr. Gerres is very nice. Gave me a reasonable treatment plan and my feet felt better the first day. She didn't stick me with anything either. I will follow her recommendations and return in a month to see where we go from there. Excellent experience so far.
Dr. Gerres is highly skilled, very funny, and listens to patients' concerns even if they seem trivial. I came in for a minor issue and she still took me seriously, gave me concrete things to do to solve the problem and did so with a sense of humor. This is how doctors should act.
Very friendly and professional office. Everyone was very nice and I was seen quickly after arriving. Would recommend to anyone looking for a DPM in the Silver Spring area.
She was easy going, but informative. I appreciated her explanations of what would happen, what could happen, etc. Great bedside manner.
I was very pleased. No wait time. Wonderful communication. In and out in less than 40 minutes. No pain which was my biggest fear with a double ingrown toenail. Would highly recommend!!!

Very personable, listened to what I said and treated me very. very well.

This was my first visit to Dr Gerres and she was absolutely wonderful. Dr. Gerres listened to what I had to say about what was bothering me and was able to pinpoint what my issue was. She has a pleasant demeanor and would definitely recommend her as well as come back to her. The staff in the office was also very friendly.
She is very nice and explains things to you before she does them. I liked her so much I brought my daughter to see her as well and we are both doing really well now thanks to her. She was also nice enough to see if insurance covered things before we made any decisions.
Doctor was very timely and talked through all my questions.
Great, professional, and quick.
Dr. Gerres was very professional throughout the entire appointment. She was able to quickly diagnose my problem and offered a couple of solutions for it. Great attitude and attention to client!
Dr. Gerres was very thoughtful and gave my 8yr. old son who has anxiety a very through exam that left him feeling good and knowledgeable about why he was there and what he needed to do to relief his foot pain.
The wait time was extraordinarily short. Dr. Gerres was very personable and explained all of her reasoning well. The exam was concise and she was able to give me the help I needed for my next steps.
Good visit, really liked Dr. Gerres. Some of the office/equipment was pretty outdated though (digital wrist cuff BP machine and X ray machine). Otherwise a good visit, would go back!

Dr. Gerres was very professional and knowledgable. She put me at ease right away, and made sure I was well informed about my foot condition. Dr. Gerres was attentive and caring. Highly recommend Dr. Gerres.
The doctor was great. She had a nice bedside manner and listened attentively to my concerns. She made me temporary inserts and then recommended a brand that has worked beautifully. The location is weird and the receptionist couldn't find my zocdoc paperwork which was very annoying.
She is very competent, explains in detail, and is not rushed at all. I found her on Zocdoc with all the good reviews about her, so thanks everyone for pointing me in the right direction.
Professional, knowledgeable, showed availability for follOw-up. Showed practical ways to relieve pain.
I didn't have a serious issue so my visit was short, but Dr. Gerres was attentive and provided me with remedies that didn't require a costly prescription. I would definitely see her again should I have a more serious foot problem.
