*Dr. Gerhardt was a referral from my oncologist. I could not be happier with his choice.

while wait time in waiting room was lengthy, I completely understand why. This doctor deals with pretty scary medical conditions and always spends whatever time is needed with patients to make sure they understand all aspects of treatment. And he does so in a calm and comforting way.

Excellent doctor! In 2017, the tumor on my lung had non-cancerous cells on and around it. The doctor still wasn't sure until he operated and removed it. It was cancer.

*Dr. Gerhardt is a wonderful doctor. He did heart surgery on me twice. I was Moses Cone Hospital for about 2 months. If I had to have surgery again I would want him.
