Dr Gerstman has been my primary care doctor for many years. I was his patient prior to the creation of CMS and chose to move with him to the subscription model of service because of his proven track record of my health care. Since joining, I discovered that the fee-for-wellness model offered by Drs Gerstman and Martinez actually enabled them to provide even better accessibility of care to me. They are able to provide care that ends up being more flexible and better tailored to my needs than traditional medical practices that focus solely on providing (and billing for) procedures when one is unwell. Both doctors work toward keeping me well by addressing smaller issues before they become big problems.
Also, of note, the nurses at CMS are like none I’ve encountered in other doctors offices. Both of these professional women go out of their way to ensure that I get what I need, whether it be an extra phone call, an unexpected appointment, or some special, extra kindess care to me while doing a blood draw. This is a rarity in today’s hectic healthcare world.
Recently, when I did experience a significant health problem, Dr Gerstman provided guidance on hospital and specialist choice. By directly communicating with me and with the specialist, Dr Gertman ensured that I was given the best care possible and I had the best possible outcome. He helped me avoid the pitfalls of having medical records splintered across different health/hospital systems so that each doctor was equally well-informed.
I’m so grateful for the wonderful doctor/patient relationship we share. I listen to Dr Gerstman and Dr Martinez because I trust them. My trust is totally in the right place with CMS.
