Patient Satisfaction Testimonials

“Dr. Gerbe is the best doctor I’ve ever seen. He truly wants to help people and get to the root of the problem, not just guessing what is wrong and putting a band-aid on the problem. He spends time with each patient… like an hour or more and is never rushing people. He isn’t about how many people he can see a day! He would rather cure 3 than see 30. He walks you through each step of any procedure to make you feel as at ease as possible. This is great for anxious people like my wife!! My whole family has seen him…grandma, 2 aunts, 3 uncles, my mama, my wife, my cousin, and myself!! Not to mention how many of our co-workers we have sent his way that adore him! If you have any ENT problems, he’s the man to see! Five stars just aren’t enough!”

Barbara in Chapel Hill, NC

“My husband has been having issues for over 2 years now & has seen several doctors. I called my insurance company to find a DR, they said Dr. Grebe has a high review. I made him an appt. to see Dr. Gerbe. After two weeks my husband is feeling so much better. Dr. Gerbe takes time with his patients & wife to explain what is happening in detail. It is great to have a dr who cares about my husband’s health & tells us how he can help & does it! Thank God for Dr. Grebe & his office staff! They are great!”
