    How was your appointment with Dr. Gerson?

    May 24, 2024
    I took my elderly mom to see dr. Gerson after she got back from the hospital following a week long stay. Dr Gerson took over an hour to go over the lab results and tests. He took the time to explain everything - and I feel as if I finally understand why she was in the hospital and we have a good plan going forward. I am very grateful to Dr Gerson.
