Dr. Robert Gerber, DPM

Podiatrist

Professional statement

After graduating from his residency 32 years ago, Dr. Gerber opened a private practice. He purchased the practice from a podiatrist who had been in business for more than 60 years, continuing to treat many of the patients who had come to trust and rely on him. Dr. Gerber's practice's mission is about quality care and precision diagnosis, treatment, and surgery. We continue to rely on those kinds of principles to make our clinic one of the most respected podiatry practices in the country.

The other doctors couldn't relieve the pain. Dr. Gerber made my foot feel better right away. And now the pain is completely gone.

Dr. Robert Gerber is the WORST SURGEON I've had. From the moment I stepped into the room he yelled and verbally attacked me. He asked, "What's wrong with your feet?" I told him what my diagnosis is and he yelled, "I'MNOT ASKING WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE SAYING, I'M ASKING YOU WHAT'S WRONG!!" Then he attacked me again: "I ASK YOU A SIMPLE QUESTION, JUST GIVE ME A SIMPLE ANSWER!!!" With my situation, there's no simple question or simple answer because I've had pain since November 2016. Every response he gave was arrogant, condescending, unnecessary, and belittling. Don't waste your time and money with him.

Very professional. It was a quick process and he knew exactly what kind of injury I had. In a receptionist was very nice. There's nothing bad that I can say about this experience.

Good doctor, knows what he's talking about, however- he was more of a salesman, rather than a doctor. He tried to sell me medical equipment before he knew if my insurance would pay for it. When I told him to check,he said, "just buy it" and if your insurance pays, we will re-imburse you. When I left and said call me when the insurance gives an answer, he called my phone 5 minutes later to say he had a patient with the same insurance as me who has not gave an answer yet. Very unprofessional.

I was happily surprised that Dr. Gerber so efficiently understood the causes of my foot discomfort and immediately went to work trimming and smoothing my toenails and removing dry skin buildup that was just beginning to bother me.

A little on the unprofessional side-- although knowledgeable but very impatient and started talking about what my insurance may or may not cover which I think is very unprofessional--he made some comments about my appeal as well which caught me off guard--won't return/sorry doc

This was my first time seeing Dr Gerber and we had a great conversation about my foot issue and other topics, like my bad smoking habit. Gave me some great tips on how I deal with my foot issue. Would definitely recommend him!!

Dr. Gerber is very knowledgeable, thoughtful, and helpful. It took him approximately two minutes for him to give me an initial diagnosis, and all of the questions and examinations that followed only confirmed his diagnosis. He was very intentionalto explain to me what he was seeing, what my diagnosis is, and ways I might go about seeking to heal my foot. In fact, he called me about two hours later saying that he was still thinking about my condition and recommended a prescription in order to speed up the process, a thought he hadn't initially shared with me! The fact that he called when he didn't have to showed me that Dr. Gerber is a fantastically thoughtful and caring physician.

The level of service received at the office mirrors the level of insurance you have. If you have good insurance you will get good service. The staff was friendly. The doctor was rushed and kept pointing out how bad my insurance was.
