Dr G & staff are amazing. All of them, Kelly, Jennifer all of the girls are caring and helpful. Dr G is a master of his craft. I could not imagine having gone to another surgeon. I felt at home with him the minute I met him. His vision for the final results helped me achieve just what I always wanted.

Dr. G. & his staff are all wonderful! They are all patient and make you feel welcomed. Dr. G. took his time making sure all of my questions were answered and asked me what I thought about the procedure, outcomes and how I felt. Very personable. I am more than happy with the outcome. The anesthesiologist even played a birthday song for me before the procedure! Wonderful people.

Dr G and his staff are friendly and professional. I had a breast lift and reduction and he did an amazing job. Great bedside manner and attention to details. Love my new/old breasts.

I did a lot of research before selecting Dr. Gerzenshtein to do my facial rejuvenation. He is professional, knowledgeable, skilled and very caring. He and his office staff are sincerely enjoyable to be around. My surgery was only 6 weeks ago and all my bruising is now gone. My face will continue to heal for a while which is normal, but I am already happy with the initial results and can tell I will be fully satisfied in the near future. I highly recommend Dr. G.!

I went to Dr. G for breast implants in November of 2015. We discussed my options and put together a plan. The staff is excellent, and overall I believe Dr. G is great surgeon, however one giant glaring error was made, and to this day I am furious and heartbroken: even though my breasts came out looking good, I SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED during consult that they be inserted through the armpit, to which he agreed.......and yet he proceeded to insert them under the breast, leaving me with scars.

An amazing experience every time!! I have visited several offices over the years for my care and for support of friends during their care and have never had such a wonderful experience as I have with Dr G. He and all of his staff are very personable, getting to know you and your concerns on every level so that they can give you the best knowledge and information for what your needs are. Your care and health is their first priority! Dr G did a correct repair from a previous surgery and it turned

Saw Dr. G a few times for facial scars and he went above and beyond to help me. I am only disappointed that he moved from WI to FL.

Dr. Gerzenshtein is now in Lakeland and is an amazing doctor. He really listens to the patients complaints and concerns and offers realistic solutions. He is a knowledgeable, creative artist with injections. It's truly the best results I've ever had. I'm looking forward to breast lift this spring and an ongoing partnership to keep me looking the best I can look at any age.
