Patient Reviews

The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Gerdeman.

“Dr Gerderman is personable, articulate, honest and forthright. He has made my issues, choices and options easy to understand, very clear and concise. His "bedside manner" in dealing with my below knee amputation was very much appreciated and helped me understand the path forward during what was an extremely difficult time for me and my family. The time he took with my wife was invaluable during the process and words cannot truly express how thankful we are to Dr Gerderman for his efforts. Working with him on the follow up and his coordination with AMC Physical Medicine and my Prosthetist is comforting and continues to reinforce I am in great hands.”

“We came to the Bone and Joint Center about 6 years ago for a " second opinion" and it was one of the best decisions we have ever made. We were given Dr. Gerdeman as our doctor and we have been so thankful for that first day we met him. Dr. Gerdeman is a brilliant, confident , kind and compassionate doctor and person. His level of expertise is unbelievable. There have been many times where the diagnosis we received wasn't what we wanted to hear, but Dr. Gerdeman always gives you the details and honesty and we are so very grateful for that. Many times we have had questions, called his secretary and left a message and Dr. Gerdeman will "always" return your call. There are many wonderful doctors out there BUT No one can compare to Dr. Gerdeman!”
