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.

The nurse, Natalie and Dr. Gershtensen are professional, friendly and thorough. They make a sometimes uncomfortable treatment more tolerable just from their demeaner and confident approach to the treatment.

As always the doc was great. Gave me the full inspection and treated some of the items that needed addressing. Good job, but the Freeze job she put on my lips was tough. Ha ha. Blisters like that don't help my looks any but they should heal soon I hope:)
