I want each patient to feel as though I have listened to them and that I’m caring and compassionate. I try to understand how their condition affects them. Patients often tell me that I’m very thorough, which translates into taking the time needed to treat their condition.

I had a very positive experience n my last visit. I signed in and was taken to my exam room in 5 minutes upon arrival. There was sanitizer in reception area and paced seating. There was only one other patient there on my visit. Everyone wore masks including Dr. G. for my entire visit. I removed my mask only for facial examination. The entire visit was very professional and quick. All my questions were answered and follow up appointment made right while in exam roof. Perfect Dr. visit.

It’s been a long time since I saw Dr Gershtenson yet I was able to complete the paperwork and get in the room in record time. Then all my questions were answered and I felt relieved. I have a follow up visit and hope it goes as smoothly.
