Ratings for Dr. Robyn Gertenstein
Would not recommend to anyone. Zero people skills, she does not let you talk, she talks over you and therefore is a very poor listener. I'd describe her personality like a loose cannon, she will just go off on you. I'd say your nurse is a very good judge of who the good doctors are as they work closely together, so if you don't like your dr, get recommendations from your nurses.
Here's the thing - she is a DR. Not a counsellor. Not someone paid to help you make a decision to abort or not. She knows her stuff and doesnt like cry babies. She is VERY smart and the one you want on your team if anything is wrong . I trust her completely and have been going to her for years and will go to her for more years. I want a Dr who knows what to do, not someone who makes me feel good about a tough decision. She runs behind because she does give patients time when needed - its a sign of being good. I've been in right away and waited... and I'll always wait for her
Dr Gertenstein is the best!! i have seen her for a few different problems over the years and she always listens and gives thoughtful and helpful advise. She is very knowledgeable and very compassionate. she always gives me the time i need and i never feel rushed. I would recommend her to anyone
Recovering from a horrible visit with this impatient insensitive snarky Doctor .... It was my daughter & I's first time meeting this doctor. The Doc never took the time to read any of the letters our family Doc had sent to her explaining where my special needs daughter is at in her development and the purpose of the appointment. We waited months for this appointment and an hour & a half in the waiting room before. Our family Doc purposely requested an end of day appointment so the specialist could spend lots of time with us to figure out the best plan for her. My daughter has many challenges she deals with that would be very hard to relay to someone in 2 minutes. She didn't want to take the time to deal with us explained nothing to me and had us rushed out the door with a prescription within 5 minutes. Not why we went there. The doctor clearly didn't give us the time we deserved.
Dr gertenstein had to be the worst obgyn I've ever seen. I was scheduled to have a d&c, this was last April, I was 17rs old & very scared & unsure of my decision. I was booked with dr. gertenstein, our first appointment was to talk about my decision. It was very hard because she basically told me if I wasn't sure of what I want to do why did I come.. also was very rough with the inserting the instruments, she told me "it's not that bad" while I was crying! The procedure was a whole other story. Its horrible what I did but I needed to do it at the time & she was not helpful at all & forsure didn't care. From reading all these reviews I'm surprised she's still working, she needs to be re evaluated by the hospital! why become an obgyn if you are only going to treat some patients better than others.
