Ratings for Dr. Paul A. Gertler
Dr. Gertler really listens to your problems and takes all the time you need which is the only reason his puntuality rating is not very high, but I actually prefer doctors that are that attentive, rather than trying to squeeze 6 patients in an hour. Highly recommend him.
He is very busy, but I have never felt like he rushed through my appointment. I am complicated and he seems to thrive on that. I would not change drs. for anything. I drive 100 miles round trip once a month to see him because he is the only doc I have ever found who was willing to keep digging until he found the problem rather than just throw meds at an unidentified problem. (he did find the problem by the way) 12 years I have seen this doc. I am very happy with him and his practice.
Care depends on how rushed he is - this is a very busy practice, and sometimes I feel like I'm getting the bum's rush because I'm not as bad off as his other patients. He actually said this to me once! Argh. I have fibromyalgia, which can be difficult to treat, but I'd like to have more of my concerns addressed, and not told that I'm not that bad off. The only reason I see Gertler is because another doctor (who was very good) in the practice left, so the remaining partners had to take his patients. It sounds like from reading Dr.George's review, I could have gotten worse ;)
I feel that Dr. Gertler listens to my concerns when I visit his office. I often bring in articles or news pieces about new treatments to discuss with him. He always takes a look at them and will discuss them with me. If he is not familiar with something, he tells me so. I trust his treatment of me.
