focus of practice

I see patients at my practice who don't want to leave after 5 minutes with just a prescription, but who would like to work on the root cause of their health struggles or take a long term preventive approach on their life.

The focus of my practice is on functional medicine. Unfortunately, there is no board certification for functional medicine in Germany (yet), but I have extensive training in practicing medicine. I am a licensed medical doctor who is double board-certified in anesthesiology and emergency medicine, but in my practice, the center of my work is on nutrition and general functional medicine since the root of disease interests me more than the sole treatment of symptoms.

My practice is equipped to do a broad spectrum of lab tests. I can measure heart rate variability, CO2, write ECG's and do ultrasound exams.

My general areas of interest include

  • Breathing therapy, especially treatment of chronic hyperventilation
  • Fasting, Nutrition, Weight loss and Gut dysbiosis
  • Fatty liver, Lipid- and Blood sugar management
  • Men's and women's hormones
  • Thyroid disease
  • Sleep and dream physiology
  • Prevention of Cardiovascular disease and Neurodegenerative disease

I will provide you with an invoice for possible reimbursement with private insurances as well as Tricare. I do not directly bill insurances so out-of-network deductibles may occur or not everything may be covered.

I send most blood to an outside lab for processing, who will send you a separate invoice you can hand in to your private insurance company or Tricare. If you have a high-deductible plan or are uninsured, self-pay discounts are available on lab testing.

scheduling an appointment

Consultation hours are by appointment only. Please schedule an appointment online, email [email protected] or call 0631 / 34 35 97 38.

Cancellations and missed appointments: If you need to reschedule an appointment, you may do so once up to seven days prior to the appointment by clicking the designated rescheduling link in the email confirming the appointment. If you want to fully cancel an appointment, please reply to the email or contact the practice at least one week ahead of the appointment. After those seven days, the spot in Dr. Gersch's schedule will be reserved just for you. If you cannot make it to the appointment, we therefore still need to bill you for that as we do not have other patients waiting in the practice who could take your spot.
