After 31 years of annual visits and the delivery of my daughters I can say with all sincerity and honesty that Janet Gersten is an excellent doctor. She is knowledgeable, honest, reliable, caring and most importantly, she listens.Her staff is very good and the office is pleasant and clean. If you want a wonderful doctor, Janet Gersten will not let you down!

I would recommend everyone women to visit Dr. Gersten, she is an excellent physician, and truly cares about her patients by taking her time and explaining everything you have questions or concerns about.

I have been one of Dr. Gersten's patient for about ten years and would not ever consider seeing another gynecologist. It starts with a very friendly and accommodating office staff, which I consider of importance as well, and Dr. Gersten herself. In the many years I have been a patient of hers she is consistently caring, takes her time to explain procedures, recommends the items best for your health, takes a sincere interest in your well being and conducts herself in the most professional way.

I have been to many gynecologists over a number of years. It was such a welcome surprise to be met by an attentive and most professional physician and her staff. In an era where much of the doctor's time has become occupied by a computer screen, I never once felt like I was in competition and vying for her attention. My complex gynecological issues were handled expeditiously and treated appropriately. Most importantly, Dr.Gersten took the time to answer my questions and discuss healthy options

I have seen Dr. Gersten twice. Once as a new patient, since I just relocated from Tennessee, and the second time as a follow up. Some people have complained about the dog, but that didn't bother me as I am a dog person, and wish that I could take my dogs to work with me. What did bother me was that after I called twice because I had an odd discharge with a foul odor two weeks after a cervical biopsy, Dr. Gersten would not see me. I was just told by the nurse to go to cvs and buy a douche.
