" Dr. Gerber was polite and professional . She is clearly an expert in what she does. She was quick and gentle in removing my IUD. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for IUD services."
" I have been seeing Dr. Gerber since 2016. She is pleasant, polite, and professional. She has a great sense of humor too. I really appreciate her COVID precautions in the waiting room and consulting rooms. Her front-end staff are friendly and helpful."
" I was due to have my Mirena IUD changed, and my GP referred me to the IUD Clinic instead of doing it again himself. I found Dr. Gerber to be very informative and extremely thorough. Follow up visits and ultrasound to check for proper placement are all new to this experience for me and this is my third time having the Mirena IUD. Learning about side effects and being provided with lots of support and follow up makes me realize that my GP should have referred me to The IUD Clinic 10 years ago when I first decided to use an IUD."
" Dr. Gerber was not only helpful in providing a hands-on experience, but that she also took the time to familiarize me with some of the physician and patient supports available."
"It was a very good learning experience and should definitely continue to be offered as an elective for our residents. The experience at The IUD Clinic was amazing! Dr. Gerber is a great instructor (calm, supportive and professional) and her clinic is well organized. I worked alongside her for two days."

“...Dr. Gerber was helpful in not only providing a hands on experience, but that she also took the time to familiarize her with some of the physician and patient support in place. In summary, the experience was nothing short of excellent.”

An intrauterine device (IUD) can be a good option for many women especially if you forgot to take your birth control pill, patch or ring or if you can not take estrogen-like women including women who smoke cigarettes, have migraine headaches with aura, or high blood pressure . It is usually a quick procedure and one can return to your daily activities immediately afterward.
