Dr. Gerstman is a true medical professional, dedicated to excellence in patient understanding, care and predictable successful outcomes. Performed an epidural steroid injection for me today, talked me through the procedure. It was like having your smartest, kindest friend help you out.

He cares about you and your health. Great bedside manner. Would definitely recommend. Did not feel that I was rushed through or just another number. He took the time to understand what I was experiencing and explained what he felt may be the cause.
