Dr was great. Very consultative listener to the nuances about my specific issues gave advice for future treatment.

I would say better than very good

This format worked well for me although I don't necessarily think that health care should head in this direction for all care. People are not always self aware and realistic don't know the right questions to ask and would generally benefit from a face to face visit with an MD.

First ever "zoom" appt. I was initially a bit unsure how it would go but once underway it was almost the same experience as being in the clinic

I was very impressed with knowledge and care.
Feb 14, 2020
There are several technical concepts and the advantages/disadvantages of available medications that I did not grasp. For the provider to explain all this to me would obviously have taken too much time. However it would have been nice to have had some handouts providing detail on procedures and medication applicable to my care.

An excellent provider--he was kind and very knowledgeable. He was what I would expect from a top doctor at UCSF and that's why I traveled 6 hours to see him.

Really made me feel part of decision making

Dr G is the best

Again my concerns NOT with the Doctor himself. He is excellent but the administrative system and access/communication is poor.

Dr. Gerstenfeld is terrific and I travel from the South Bay to seek out his expertise and care.

I had a stroke in the waiting room after my visit to Dr Gerstenfeld. He came out of his office and immediately went into action placing me in a wheelchair and personally accompanying me to the ER. I think the world of him medically and personally.

I was early and then seen early. Dr. [name redacted] and then Dr. Gerstenfeld were very forthcoming in discussing my upcoming ablation.

Dr. Gerstenfeld has my full confidence. I drive from Los Gatos to see him and don't think twice about it.

I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Gerstenfeld. I feel so fortunate to have him as my doctor! Not just because he figured out what was wrong with me when others couldn't but he has this really great demeanor; he listens to you (!) and has this calm way about him that you know that he totally knows what is going on and helps you see your road to recovery more clearly. He is awesome! And I've recommended him already to others!!

I am extremely satisfied of the way Dr Gerstenfeld performed the ablation excellently done. My AFib is gone and my life is much better.thank you so very much! Dr G is an excellent doctor!

dr Gerstenfeld is a kind and busy Doctor. we appreciated being fit in even though the error over the appointment was due to a breakdown in communication between the doctor and the patient care coordinator.
Feb 22, 2019
NP and doc were excellent
Feb 20, 2019
Had to wait far too long to see the doctor himself. Nurse Practitioner had spent plenty of quality time with me but physician was running way behind schedule. Nurse Practitioner had prepared him very well so it was not necessary for him to spend much time with me especially since he was "running late" and had other patients were waiting. Would have liked to have had more time with the physician himself. Might have asked him more questions.

Dr Gerstenfeld's team of clinicians is second to none.
