How was your experience with the doctor?I just read 2 negative reviews about Dr Gerstner and I am shocked!!!I trust Dr Gerstner with my life! She is sharp as a tac, well schooled and knows what she is doing! I consult her on ALL of my health issues because I feel so confident in her diagnostic sensibilities. Of course I go to the requisite pro after I seek her council....THAT is how much I value her talent as a Dr!She has done amazing work on me and I am blessed to have her in my cadre of Dr's! I don't wish to minimize peoples upset; however; I have been a VERY satisfied patient of Dr Gerstner's, for 12 + years, in fact I was her guinea pig for Botox 12 years ago. Not only did she do a superb job but as all of the Dr's injections were being supervised, SHE was the only Dr they used as an example stating how precise and good she was at how she approached and administered her injections!The previous review stated she was heavy handed,,,,, nothing is further than accurate. She is measured and conservative, perhaps disgruntled patients will never be happy and who knows what they have had done previously to perhaps interfere with Dr G's work. I can't say I can only say that some people have unrealistic expectations and more is better in their mind.I have had nothing but amazing results for over 12 years!

How was your experience with the doctor?Horrible horrible Botox for $2000!!!!!!. My face is totally frozen and my eyelids are pushed down and I have straight eyebrows. ZERO responsibility on her part for being way too heavy handed. Her response was I needed to get surgery on my eyelids. Are you serious!? That's why I get Botox - to lift my eyelids!!! Her end response was "Botox wears off, I'm sorry you aren't happy". Well, I'm sorry after paying $2000 for Botox I should not be walking around hiding!  We spoke about what I wanted. I wanted movement. I did not want to be frozen and I wanted my eyebrows arched... where's the responsibly in not delivering any of that !?! She basically knew I would never be coming back to her so she didn't give a @$&@! SHE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO DO BOTOX... end of story!!

How was your experience with the doctor?I go cheated. Mostly She wants to sell me products. And they persist to say their products are real so the prices are double or triple than other website. Until I found the products manufacturers' website.
