Dr. Robert H Gerner has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Justice has finally been granted to this "doctor". He can no longer practice medicine. He already had his license suspended years ago for his unbelievable conduct..with his lesson learned ..and his superior attitude, he did the same exact outrageous conduct again!! This time his career is over, with humiliation,disgrace and shame (not sure he feels any emotion) he turned in his license to the board. You can read the current case online. I had filed a complaint with the medical board years ago regarding his conduct with me (after I had read the case against him where his license was revoked)..after waiting months.. they sent him a letter and he was able to continue practicing. It was extremely disappointing and frustrating..but..he finally got what he deserves .. this should of happened years ago. He played with people's minds by over prescribing drugs, peoples fragile mental state and emotions. It is reassuring to know that sometimes the system does work..and he won't be able to harm any other patients...

Con Man

Dr. Gerner is a con man and a sexual predator. He lost his license once for having sex with one of his patients during sessions. He was on probation for 7 years. As soon as he was off probation, he did it again. Now he has another complaint about this with the medical board and faces possible revocation of his license permanently. This is what this man deserves. Don't become one of his victims. He acts like he really cares, but I can assure you that his main interest is himself. Don't be fooled.

Great professional

Dr. Gerner was one of my 1st psychiatrists. He taught me that there is no shame in mental illness. As I am hard to treat, Dr. Gerner patiently tried med after med. When I'd get discouraged, he'd tell me that there wad a med that would help me. He was right and we found it.

Knows His Stuff.

Brilliant man. I doubt anybody in the country knows more about drugs and disorders and the range of possibilities. Listens very well and picks up on subtleties that others might miss. Found many of his comments about me and my life to be harsh if not unconsciously cruel. Let's just say talk therapy may not be his calling. But definitely a huge improvement as a psychopharmacologist compared to the cookie-cutter approaches and poker table treatment options that are commonly practiced. Dr. Gerner knows his stuff.
