Great Doctor

I had a mole removal. It was pain free, and the healing process was pain free as well. The Dr. was friendly, as were the admin staff. The wait time was average and about what I expect when I go to doctor's appointment.

Extremely Satisfied !

For years I put off going to a dermatologist due to some bad experiences in the past.Dr. Gerdes was recommended to me by another doctor I highly respect! I went to see Dr. Gerdes and I'm glad I did. She quickly and painlessly removed a large nasty mole . She examined the rest of my body for any concerns. She answered all of my questions and put my mind at ease.She was pleasant,informative,and efficient . I 've already recommended her to a friend and now my husband wants to make an appointment with Dr. Gerdes.
