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.

This was my first visit to Dr. Gershtenson’s office. I found her to be through with her exam. She showed concern for my comfort with the exam and explained what she was going to do and what I should be aware of when it came to my own health. I was very comfortable with her exam and treatment of my issue. I highly recommend her.
