Dr. Gertel received his undergraduate degree from the University of Southern California in Biological Sciences with a minor in Sociology. He graduated from the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, WI and went on to complete his Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery residency training at the University of Connecticut.
Dr. Gertel grew up in Mequon, Wisconsin. Since graduating from USC, he has always dreamed of returning to Southern California. His training kept drawing him further east, but he is excited to now be able to bring his knowledge and experience back to the West Coast.
Dr. Gertel enjoys treating adults and children with a wide variety of ear, nose, and throat disorders. He believes in listening carefully to each patient’s unique story and arriving at a treatment plan together.
Outside of the office and operating room, Dr. Gertel likes to hike, go to the beach, read, lift weights, and play and watch basketball, football, and baseball. He enjoys traveling and staying up-to-date with the latest technology. Most of all, he loves and cherishes spending time with his family.
