"Very accommodating when it came to getting into see a physician after I had my accident. Dr. Gurske and her physician assistant are very nice to work with. Building was nice and office area is pleasant to wait in."
"Dr. Jennifer [Gurske-dePerio] is wonderful, and a pleasure to visit."
"I had the pleasure of meeting and being treated by Dr. Jennifer [Gurkse-dePerio]. It was one of the most unbelievable doctors' visits I have ever experienced. She actually listened to me and then explained everything in detail to me of what had happened to me and my foot and ankle. Gave me all my options and continued from there. I had shots, then got brace and shoe inserts for my foot. Will be seeing her in a couple of weeks for a follow up. It was wonderful talking to a doctor who actually listened."
"I saw Nora, a PA. I want to thank her for being extremely knowledgeable and kind. See you again soon!"
I can’t say enough about Dr. Gurske and her team – and UBMD in general – for the great care they provided after I sustained a serious heel fracture. From the initial diagnosis through surgery, physical therapy and follow-up their professionalism and upbeat personalities kept me motivated to work hard through my recovery process. As a result I am walking, limp-free and pain-free, after less than 5 months post-injury. This is way ahead of schedule and I’m looking forward to picking up right from where I left off. Listen to your doctor and physical therapist: Their advice made all the difference in my rapid recovery.
In 2015, I had surgery to remove bone from my right heel (Haglunds deformity). Now, nine months later I must say thank you to you, Dr. Gurske and your staff. Since my surgery and rehab I’ve been pretty active, attending a spin class several times a week as well as other activities. In June, my wife and I participated in the Ride for Roswell, doing the 34 mile route with no issues. We just returned from a 2,000 mile road trip during which we did a LOT of hiking and climbing mountain trails and paths. I had no pain in my heel; where before my surgery I would have been in agony. Also, driving long distances used to be painful as my heel would rest on the back of my shoe and cause pain. Now, no pain. I’m thankful to have had the surgery and I thank you and your staff for the care I received both before and after my surgery. God bless you all!
