I have been going to Dr. Gerstein for years for chronic skin cancer. His care has helped me prevent more serious cancers, and even reduced the occurance of cancer spots.

When I was younger, I sustained a tremendous amount of sun damage that has caught up with me throughout the years. Dr. Gerstein has been instrumental in making sure that the damage I suffered in my youth stays under control and doesn't lead to anything serious. Treating areas of concern as well as receiving additional chemical peel services has really made a difference in the quality of my skin. I highly recommend him and his incredible staff for your dermatology needs.

Dr. Gerstein removed a mole from the side of my nose. The process was painless, stressless, and now, not only is the mole not there, you cannot even tell I ever had a mole there. He did a great job.

So happy to have been referred to Dr. Gerstein! He always takes time to talk over any of my concerns and is thorough with his exams. The office staff is very friendly and they always seem to run on time. The office has a calming feel to it which is great because I'm a nervous patient. I go every 6 months due to my history. I highly recommend!

Dr. Gerstein was my dermatologist for 10 years before I moved to SC. I thought I'd just find a new one where I lived but had horrible experiences with the dermatologists there. I was going to be home for Christmas and reached out to see if I could meet with him. He came, during the holidays AND when his office was closed, just to see me. I'm not sure how many doctors would do that for their patients. Dr. Gerstein is HANDS DOWN the best dermatologist! I will continue to fly home just to see him!

I had an uncomfortable cyst on my thigh very near my buttock and, based on a previous skin cancer nodule removed by Dr. Gerstein, I had him examine the offending cyst. His medical assistant injected the novacaine and Dr. Gerstein excised the cyst painlessly. He carefully sutured the incision to minimize the scar. From start to finish, Dr. Gersrtein and his medical staff made the procedure comfortable, predictable and actually quite funny based on the comraderie of his surgical team. #1 job!

I have a history of skin cancer. I see Dr. Gerstien every 6 months. He is a very good dermatologist. Dr. Gerstien has excellent bedside manor and he is very easy to talk to. He does a very thorough scan and I have grown to love visiting his team. I purchase Skin Medica products from his office and they perform wonderful chemical peels. They can always get me in when needed and my husband and children love seeing him as well. I cannot recommend a better Dermatologist in Indiana!
