in Altoona, PA |
Was sent to Dr Kerstetter to receive treatment another local derm did not provide, and she worked with me, and is extremely educated on my rare skin disease. This is excellent for those in this local rural area!

Failed epically. Was prescribed unnecessary medicine that almost put me in hospital. Went to Pittsburgh by my own doing to see specialist, was given correct medicine, and was told never to see kerstetter again, ever. Was told she should not be a doctor.
