My first experience seeing a dermatologist, I was nervous of course. I found the Dr. Gershtenson, and the staff to be very professional, and I would recommend her to anyone needing a dermatologist.

I liked her right away. She is explained as she went thru the exam and asked if I had any concerns or questions. She took her time and wasn't in a rush. Her nurse was friendly and thorough . My experience was a very positive one. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gershtenson to family and friends....more
