in Anderson, IN |
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!
