How likely are you to recommend Dr. Gorenstein?

(Select your rating)
Saw Dr. Gorenstein after another surgeon suggested cracking the chest for surgery, he was absolutely appalled and explained a better, minimally invasive process. As a 20 year old female, this was the best news. He made my family and I feel confident in his skill, comfortable, and was beyond professional and kind. With a mass between the lung and heart, he made me feel so safe and did a phenomenal job, and healing went perfectly with no complications.
