Patient Comments (6)
in Manalapan,, NJ |
I wish I could give Dr. Gershenbaum a ten star rating - that's what he deserves. I just had my second cataract surgery by him & I couldn't be more pleased. He obviously had the best credentials but in addition he is patient, understanding, compassionate & most of all kind. I am a senior on a limited income & he totally understood my decision for a plain vanilla lens & reassured me in many ways about my choice. He takes the time to explain everything & gives encouragement when needed.

I am so pleased with my femto cataract surgery
in Marlboro, NJ |
He doesn't not answer patients' question, nor does he show any interest in patient's concern. He appears very cold and doesn't explain any problems concerning to patient. It seems to many patients of his, we are just the $$$ to him and nothing more.
