I've never had such a terrible experience with a doctor. She constantly interrupts you, does not listen at all and rushes. Has no time to care about your well being or answer questions. I don't need to be coddled but she was rude, snapped at me and on one occasion when I was worried I had an infection told me "now she had to examine me because she has to look into everything I complain about." I've had many pelvic exams over the years for various reasons and never experienced so much pain. She was very rough with the speculum. Immediately pushed antidepressants on me when I was anxious. When I didn't end up taking the drugs she lied to my face and said she was against them the whole time. My partner who came to an appointment after being concerned about the previous one witnessed her attitude and was in shock. When he tried to say there must have been a miscommunication she interrupted and talked over him as well. Bottom line, would not recommend her. She had moments of being okay but only when you aren't bothering her or trying to talk.

Love her! She may be straight forward and blunt but that's what I love about her. She is good at what she does explains everything just listen she doesn't have time to waste explaining things 7 times bc you can't listen the first! She is an excellent Dr really knows her stuff. Absolutely love her and her personality she is funny!

Terrible bedside manager and far too rough with delicate procedures. She would not explain the procedures she was doing and literally every time she touched me she caused pain. She is not coming near me again and I would not recommend her even for a check up to anyone.

I went to Dr. Gertenstein for a D&C and she was very rough and not knowledagable in how to perform the procedure. I bled for almost two years straight after the procedure and had extensive medical costs and a lot of pain and suffering. This is not a nice woman at all. Don't see her for surgeries for sure. I had no issues with other D&C's that I have had other then the emotional ones that come with them.

This Dr is extremely rude ,poor communication skills ,arrogant & handled my daughter at delivery very roughly . I've been a nurse for many years & never seen a women that rough with a patient or nasty talking about other Dr's , She needs an upgrading in her skills ,ethics & just how to be compassionate ! I wouldn't recommend my worst enemy to her.

I don't recommend this Dr, she is very rude and disrespectful, she keeps patients waiting for 1-2 hours, and her clinic gets so full of patients waiting for her, there is no room to sit in the waiting room and people stand out in the hallway. I eventually had enough and found another Dr.

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
