I've always had a great respect for Dr. Gerard. Sorry that the relationship ends. Never has there ever been anything but a favorable experience with him in the many years I have been his patient.

Have been seeing Dr. Gerard since '07 and like the way he has explained my situation as he understands it to be. Has always answered my questions in an honest, straight-forward manner which I appreciate.

I could not be more pleased with the care that I am receiving from Dr. Gerard. He took the time to listen and to explain my condition. He took the time to call another specialist to get me scheduled. He had his office staff schedule me for an echo. the next day. After having the echo, he took the time to review my results and meet with me immediately following. I am very greatful for all that he has done already!
