My husband and I were ready to take a trip this summer to Italy but the pain in my back was so bad we thought we might have to cancel the trip. I didn’t know who to go to but found Dr Gerstman and was I lucky I did! He listened to everything and took time to explain what was happening. He treated me and off I went to Italy!!!! I was even able to walk the hills of Positano, twice!! Would Irecommend Dr Gerstman? Without a second thought! Thank you so much Dr Gerstman for the best trip of my life!

After suffering from chronic back pain for years, I was referred to Dr. Gerstman for pain management. He has terrific bedside manner, is caring, compassionate, and willing to take as much time as needed to explain things and answer any questions a patient has. He has gone above and beyond what any other doctor has done for me. I would highly recommend him for any one seeking pain management. He has convenient office locations and times.

I presently am moving out of state & he legally wrote me for 1 month. Nothing extra so I would have more time to find a doctor. I've watched him morph from a nice doctor that was thorough, helpful & happy to a miserable, inconsiderate, judgmental open wallet. NJ doesn't have anesthesiologist's that manage chronic pain. This is the ONLY REASON I wound up being treated by him. After what he's done & few other incidents, my respect & trust disolved

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.

Dr Gerstman is my idea of what a Dr should be..an exemplary model of the characteristics that a patient needs in a physician. After suffering pain for a lengthy period of time due to a fall, Dr Gerstman was the one to correctly diagnose my problem as being the shoulder Rotator cuff. He is kind, patient , caring and brilliant. Although he has so many patients he makes U feel that you are his only one. He is interested truly in helping you to get Relief and is the Dr You are seeking Jill
