Consultations

Your first visit really sets the stage for everything to follow. It's where we get to know each other and the patient begins to get comfortable with the work that will be done. I begin by listening to what her patients want and what they can do aesthetically to help to reach their goals. Encouraging them to look in a mirror, I ask what features they don't like and what they do like. Listening is so important. In fact, it's key to establishing a good doctor patient relationship. Taking time during the initial consultation makes such a difference. I personally take the medical history, discuss procedures, and show my pre-and- post-op photos and answer any questions or concerns a patient may have.
Patients are welcomed to bring along a spouse or a friend for the consultation. He or she can come in the exam room, or not, depending the patients preference. Once a patient has decided to proceed with the surgery, having a support system makes an immense difference in terms of recovery and psychological well being.

Facilities

Dr. Gerber's in-office surgical facility is fully accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF). Every year the facility is inspected in order to assure everything is running in perfect order. Dr. Gerber's surgical facility offers her patient's convenience, greater privacy, more personalized attention and it reduces possible exposure to hospital-borne pathogens.
