I was absolutely shocked to hear this news today. Dr. Gemlick has performed several surgeries on my fractured Fibula and damage to my right knee. His upbeat attitude was infectious while recovering and through rehab! After all these years I have never forgotten him and am very sad for his work family and his families loss.

I was devastated to hear of Dr. Block's passing. As my doctor since he came to Ortho ONE he will be sorely missed.

Today my Husband and I found out about Dr. Gemlick's passing. Needless to say we join the broken hearted. He was an amazing human being and Doctor. The tributes listed in his Guest Book says it all. Our prayers go out to his Family, Friends and Associates. He is going to be so missed by those who were blessed to have known him. His passing leaves a big void in our lives and the Physician Community.

Dr. Gemlick was a great physician. He did two surgeries on my arms and hand. He always had time for a chat and I appreciated his care.

I finally got to meet Dr. Gemlick minutes before he performed my knee surgery on September 19, 2019. I was referred to him by close trusted friends from Trine University. I trusted him immediately. After my checkup on September 30th, I knew the knee was healing just fine, now I know its just my heart that aches for his family and his co-workers Team Gemlick. May God Bless you all.

Dr. Gemlick has been our doctor for almost 20 years and seen both of us through multiple surgeries. He was a super guy to talk to as he always treated you as if you were his only patient of the day, taking time to thoroughly explain and answer questions. The only doctor my husband had total faith in...ever...Our prayers and condolences are with his family during this very sad time. So many wonderful tributes to him is wonderful to see.

One of the best doctors I've EVER had. He was supposed to do my shoulder surgery in april, and it got rescheduled due to me continuing to get sick. The ONLY doctor I trusted to do my surgery. Very compassionate, understanding. And knew how to make someone feel comfortable, and like they were more than just another patient in his book. He actually made you feel more like family, than a patient. My deepest condolences to his family.
