Dr. Bret R Gerber has the following 1 specialty
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Dr. Gerber has been my children's pediatrician since 2003. He is an extremely caring and courteous physician and is absolutely great with my children. He takes the greatest of care to truly listen to the patient and parents' questions during the exam. The medical office staff are also terrific and although wait times may vary, it is only because the physicians truly take the time necessary which may not be planned to care for your children!
I found dr.gerber to be unprofessional, condescending and extremely rude. To think, a person having been arrested for using several types of powerful illegal drugs is still a Scripps doctor?! I wish I would have read that before trusting my child with him. Worst experience, long wait times, horrible doctor. Do your research and keep your children away from him.
Dr. Gerber was my sonâs pediatrician through a chronic life-threatening illness from the time he was two and a half years old onward to adulthood. Because my sonâs illness was long and complex Dr. Gerber sent references to many other great specialists on my sonâs behalf. The point isâwe have seen so many doctors over the years we feel like the âSiskel and Ebertâ of pediatric medical providers. Dr. Gerber, quite simply, is the best of the best. Professional, knowledgeable, warm, genuine, caringâI cannot think of a way to improve the service he providesâunless it would be that he graduate into adult medicine so that we could continue to have him as our family physician. Medically speaking, Dr. Gerber is a rare find!
