"Met with the doctor twice. He presented all of my options in a very clear and concise manner. No pressure to repair my rotator cuff and fully explained the options." – David R.
"Dr. Gerdeman is awesome! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Everyone made a very difficult time much easier." – Lauren
"It is so refreshing to find a doctor who is not anxious to solve all problems with immediate surgery. This practice is on top of things and very professional. While I know that emergencies can cause delays, I have never had to wait long to be seen. I believe that is because one doctor is assigned emergency cases on a rotating basis. I highly recommend this practice." - Carolyn M.
