To be in an office and have very real problems that play out like a Woody Allen movie with its dark humor; beyond his technical abilities the man is genius in his approach. I trust this doctor 100%.

Review for Dr. Dardashti

I had a very important surgery with Dr. Gertel and o felt so comfortable. From the beginning he treated with me respect but also compassion. He explained and talked to me. He gave me options and included me in every step. For surgery he made sure I knew I was supported and care about. He called me...
