      After being diagnosed with Stage 4 uterine cancer, I was devistated. I am a single Mom of a special needs child, and I was terrified for not only myself but for my son. Then I saw Dr. Gersten. He not only gave me the hope and support I need to fight this terrible disease, he saved my life. I am happy to say that I am now three years in remission and doing great. I owe it all to Dr. Gersten, he is an amazing and knowledgeable physician.

      Pure and simple, Dr. Gersten is a top tier choice for cancer care. My husband was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2012. (No, he never smoked.) Dr. Gersten has been treating him since that time. He is current with the latest/best treatments and he religiously monitors my husband’s condition to stay on top of any changes. When needed, he consults with other specialists to coordinate treatment. His staff is top notch as well. And the nurses working in the infusion area are angels on earth!! A cancer diagnosis is a scary thing to hear and deal with, but Dr. Gersten and his wonderful staff are the best fighting partners anyone could ask for. I recommend him without hesitation!

      Dr. Gersten has been a godsend since my diagnosis. Not only is he an incredibly smart and accurate oncologist but he has great character and bedside manner. I actually look forward to seeing the pleasant staff during visits and know they are there for whatever I need. I can't thank this man enough.

      Most doctors aree knowledgeable and competent at what they do, what sets Dr. Gersten apart is his demeanor and genuine concern for his patients; we met in an impersonal manner by way of his making rounds at the hospital where I was in ICU so to him I could have been just another face but instead he treated me as though I had been his patient for many years. When I went to his office for a follow up it was as though with an old friend who also was my treating physician and the same with his staff. Many good vibes from being treated as a person, not treated like just a faceless insurance claim.

      As a Leukemia patient out of remission in September of 2014 I was recommended to see Dr. Gersten and he has truly been "a lifesaver" to me and my family. Going on 5 years of seeing Dr. Gersten and now in full remission I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, caring, diligent, and always there for me and others. I wouldn't even think of seeing anyone else and God Bless him now and going forward in this very tough but important profession. John S.

      After being diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at the young age of 31, I felt like my world crumbled. I was a Mom of two small children, a wife, and a medical professional for 10 plus years. I entrusted my care in Dr. Gersten after he was highly recommended by many well respected health care professionals. He and his team of angel nurses saw me a lot as I was very sick throughout my treatment. He was always there, no matter the day, time, or what was possibly going on. He is extremely knowledgeable, honest, and truly a great doctor. When you are given a cancer diagnosis, you don't look for the "ok" doctor, you go for the one that is a guru in his field, and this is Dr. G! He has been there for my family and I through our darkest days, has been available whenever I've needed a question answered or a sounding board to remind me that I don't need to freak out. I can not thank him and his staff enough for the love, care, and support they poured out on me on my journey into remission.

      The first time I visited Dr. Gersten, I was only there to check my platelets as I was 3 months pregnant. He became my oncologist after I was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin Lymphoma on my 2nd trimester. Dr. Gersten and his staff were wonderful during such traumatic times. He constantly coordinated with my OB/GYN and my perinatologist doctor to make sure my baby and me were safe during chemotherapy. He was always a good listener, honest, direct and made me feel safe. He then treated me for a reoccurrence and also recommended Moffitt Cancer Center for a stem cell transplant. Dr. Gersten was one of the responsible doctors that saved my life and my baby’s. He carefully selected the right treatment for me and I will always be grateful. It’s been 8 years since my diagnosis and I’m still on remission!

      I've been a patient at his office for many years and I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Gersten and Anna his nurse. Good people who take the time to listen to you and who are not focused on pushing medication but instead want to work with you finding ways to achieve better health. A doctor who knows you personally outside the walls of his office and who truly care for our wellbeing.

      I was an inpatient for an infected port at a local hospital and was to see Dr Gersten while I was there. He was a no show for 2.5 days. When he did show up, he was rude, dismissive and made highly insensitive and inappropriate remarks. Cancer patients deserve to be treated with sensitivity, respect and dignity. I won't tolerate that treatment from a rude, burned out, resentful doctor.
