First off, I left an online note to schedule an appointment at 8:05am and by 8:15am I received the most professional/polite and genuine call back where my appointment was made. My appointment was kept on time, I was first greeted by Dr. Gershtenson's assistant (Alissa I believe) where pleasantries and preliminary background for visit were revealed. A few short minutes later Dr. Gershtenson examined my area of interest then furthered her diagnostics uncovering additional areas to be explored.
