Guthrie Patient: March 2019
Dr. Bertsch has been my Dr. for seven yrs. He is the consummate professional. Highly knowledgeable and always courteous and efficient. Would be hard to find anyone better.
Guthrie Patient: March 2019
Dr. Bertsch was very compassionate and caring while talking with me and my husband about my surgery. I was very frightened regarding my diagnosis and Dr. Bertsch answered all our questions to our satisfaction. He was so very kind and caring I wanted to hug him before I left. I have a follow up to review some test results and he may get that hug at that visit! I have already recommended him to a friend that needs surgery.
