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 thorough and explained things very specifically. She is very pleasant to deal with and spends whatever time you require to answer questions and explain procedures, options and any concerns you might have regarding your health. Highly recommend.

Everyone is so friendly and welcoming it's a pleasure to go for an appointment. My doctor explained my treatment and said that the treatment was working I was much improved. I don't have to go back for a year unless something flares up and if I need more ointment just to call and it will be sent to my pharmacy.
