Patient Reviews

Dr. Gemas and his staff in one word are wonderful.

I developed a chronic severe knee pain. Having past negative experiences with doctors, I put off seeing a doctor. A friend recommended Dr. Gemas to me. I cannot be more thankful for that recommendation. Dr. Gemas and his staff in one word are wonderful. Appointments are made with ease and schedules are on time. Dr. Gemas and staff are all very friendly and importantly, very knowledgeable. The moment I walk into their office, there is a calming effect and I am taken care of. I ended up having surgery on my knee. Setting the surgery up was painless. Dr. Gemasí staff handled everything perfectly. The surgery went smoothly and follow up as well. I have complete trust in Dr. Gemas because I know that he cares about my medical issues and does his best to make things as best for me as possible. I cannot express Marion C. Dallas, Texas

I canít say enough good things about this office.

I canít say enough good things about this office. We came to Dr. Gemas originally for my husbandís knee. They have taken excellent care of him. And, in the winter of 2014, my sun injured his knee in gymnastics. Dr. Gemas saw him the next day and by the next week he was in for knee surgery. He returned to full gymnastics workout and unfortunately injured his other knee. Again, he was seen immediately and had knee surgery within days. It is 3 months post-op for him and he is completely back 100% to gymnastics and soccer. I also had to have shoulder surgery in Feb 2015, this was a great relief to all the pain Iíd been experiencing and I am close to 100% recovered. Love Dr. Gemas, Angie and all the staff! Thank you!

I heartily recommend Dr. Gemas and the entire staff to anyone considering surgery.

Iíve had a meniscus, a knee replacement and a rotator cuff repair. Have gotten to know all the staff. Theyíve been both professional and caring. I love being treated like a person, not a number in a cattle call. I heartily recommend Dr. Gemas and the entire staff to anyone considering surgery. As an older patient, itís comforting to have such a group to rely on. Janna P. Plano, Texas
