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.

Dr Gershtenson was very friendly and professional. She took time to ask questions and really listen to my child.

Generally our experiences have been good. The doctor did a great job with my daughter, finding a solution for something that had been plaguing her for a long time. Gave four stars instead of five because of the wait times. I don’t believe we’ve had a wait less than 30 minutes and we’ve had to wait over an hour on more than one occasion. That is very frustrating!

Dr. Gershtenson and her staff are very professional and very compassionate. They go the extra mile to make sure that the patient is given the best of care. They also help to ease the cost of the medications, which often are expensive and may not be covered by insurance. They also take their time with you insuring that you understand the treatment plan. I am sure glad that I choose Dr. Gershtenson as my doctor. I highly recommend her. She is a class act. I would give her a 5 star rating based on 5 stars being the highest. She really care about the well being of her patients. The patient is never treated as just a number. Mike D. From Kenosha

Because of a history of melanoma I had received regular screening from a highly recommended Dermatologist for several years. That doctor recently moved to a different state and I therefor needed to find a new doctor here in Kenosha. I have now had three visits with Dr Gershtensen and my confidence in her skills far exceeds my experience with my previous doctor. I highly recommend Dr Gershtensen.
