I owe the quality of my life to this man! His skill has given me a life without pain at long last. I was terrified of the triple fusion ... and trust me.. its not a easy operation or recovery.. however, I can say now .. two years later... I am still pain free. He is gifted .. very nice.. and his staff is great. I recommend him whole heartedly
dr gerstzen is on eof the few doctors out there that actually care about the patient.he takes time to listen to you and answer your questions.he just doesnt care how many patients he can get in andc out the door as quick as possible. i saw 4 doctors before him and none of them wanted to hear me or give me a correct diagnosis. this is the second surgery ive had by him and he and his team make it a great experience. from the time you see him until after the surgery. he checks on you as well as his team. wouldnt see anyone else.
