Dr. Gerard is the most exceptional medical provider I've ever seen. I have honestly never felt so heard, seen, or cared about by a physician. I first time I saw her she stayed with me past clinic closing time and made a real effort to thoroughly understand my history. She asked questions none of my previous neurologists ever had, and created a plan I was comfortable with. When I recently mentioned some new symptoms to her, she stopped everything, listened intently, and took the necessary steps (ordered tests and gave me referrals) to get to the bottom of it. These symptoms were previously dismissed by another doctor. This is the difference between Dr. Gerard and others. The care she provides her patients is extraordinary and I consider myself fortunate to have her on my "team."

she listened to my concerns and suggested a new treatment opinion to address those concerns. She sent a mychart message the same day that my test results came back to explain the results. She always makes me feel like a person and not a number. One of NMH's best!

Dr. Gerard has treated me for 8 years and always show temenedous concern for me. On this visit, she did some on line research about availability of generic version of med she prescribes for me and helped find a way to buy it at a reduced price.

Dr. Gerard always goes above and beyond when I see her! She truly cares about her patience and is extremely thorough with her approach of choosing a treatment plan. She always explains her reason behind her thinking and she stays up to date on the latest released papers and studies in her field. She takes her time with me and is never rushed out of the room leaving me with unanswered questions. I also always have access to her and her nurse through mychart and I never have to wait more then 24 hours before i get a responds back. She is truly invested in my care and I trust her 110% I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Gerard and her team!
