Your Health and Patient Reviews

Patient Reviews

For well over a decade, Dr. Gerstman has provided our entire family of four with the most comprehensive and compassionate care that any doctor could. My wife and I had spent time trying to find a family practice that we could get to know. Every practice we encountered had numerous physicians and we rarely saw the same person from visit to visit. That definitely changed once we met Dr. Gerstman. He was available to us whenever we visited his practice. With our busy lifestyle, and two young boys who played multiple sports, we were really concerned about injuries and follow up. Dr. Gerstman was always willing to answer my questions and provide guidance when our family needed it. Whether that was a late-night visit to an emergency room after a sports injury, a follow up quesion regarding medications, or even the numerous immunization questions that arise with school age children, Dr. Gerstman was always available. He has always taken the time to speak with each of us during our visits. He is truly concerned about our holistic wellbeing. In this day of medicine driven by insurance restrictions, it has truly been a blessing to have Dr. Gerstman working with us. and especially for us. over these many years. A simple thank you never seems to be enough but Dr. Gerstman has absolutely earned it from our family.

World Class Health Care with peace of mind.

Concierge Medicine lives up to its service claim of 24/7 care. Both it’s docs and support staff are amazing. We’ve been members for years and with the changing dynamics in medicine, we’re sure glad we both have Concierge! To know you have someone you can call, text or get right in the office when needed makes ALL the difference. 

Dr. Ira Gerstman gets to know YOU and cares. He understands the connection between mind, body and spirit. That these systems aren’t independent but interconnected. He LISTENS to you and trusts that you know your body. It’s a partnership and we wouldn’t have it any other way. No matter where you are in the world, large issue or just a question, you can contact him and he’ll help manage your health and is will to work with others in the field to try to coordinate your care.

I did not join in the beginning but after being in the hospital four times, I knew that I needed peace of mind. That was more important than the money. Since joining, I have been able to call and receive a response right away from Dr. Gerstman, including an appointment within 1 hour. I can’t say enough about having your doctor available 24/7.

Dr. Kristina Martinez provides quality and effective care to all her patients. She is very knowledgeable in her field of practice. I’m very comfortable with Dr. Martinez as she is highley personable and caring during my visits. I would recommend anybody looking for a new doctor to join the practice and see Dr. Martinez. I give her a 10 out of 10!

Dr Gerstman has been my primary care doctor for many years. I was his patient prior to the creation of CMS and chose to move with him to the subscription model of service because of his proven track record of my health care. Since joining, I discovered that the fee-for-wellness model offered by Drs Gerstman and Martinez actually enabled them to provide even better accessibility of care to me. They are able to provide care that ends up being more flexible and better tailored to my needs than traditional medical practices that focus solely on providing (and billing for) procedures when one is unwell. Both doctors work toward keeping me well by addressing smaller issues before they become big problems.

Also, of note, the nurses at CMS are like none I’ve encountered in other doctors offices. Both of these professional women go out of their way to ensure that I get what I need, whether it be an extra phone call, an unexpected appointment, or some special, extra kindess care to me while doing a blood draw. This is a rarity in today’s hectic healthcare world.

Recently, when I did experience a significant health problem, Dr Gerstman provided guidance on hospital and specialist choice. By directly communicating with me and with the specialist, Dr Gertman ensured that I was given the best care possible and I had the best possible outcome. He helped me avoid the pitfalls of having medical records splintered across different health/hospital systems so that each doctor was equally well-informed.

I’m so grateful for the wonderful doctor/patient relationship we share. I listen to Dr Gerstman and Dr Martinez because I trust them. My trust is totally in the right place with CMS.

Managing Your Health

Health Tips

“You can infuse your life with the power of prevention incrementally and fairly painlessly, and yes, doing something, no matter how small, is infinitely better for you than doing nothing,” says David Katz, MD, MPH, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center and of the Yale Preventive Medicine Center. Katz is also co-author of the book Stealth Health: How to Sneak Age-Defying, Disease-Fighting Habits into Your Life without Really Trying.

Living healthier isn’t as hard as you think! By making small changes here and there in your lifestyle, you can make a big difference in your overall health! Here are some ideas that you can start implementing into your new healthy lifestyle today!

  • Start walking 30 minutes per day. A study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in 2004 found that adding just 30 minutes of walking per day was enough to prevent weight gain and encourage moderate weight loss.
  • Skip the foods and drinks made with high fructose corn syrup! Many nutritionists believe this is worse for your body than sugar.
  • Start each dinner with a mixed green salad. This will reduce your appetite and add vegetables to your meal.
  • Limit your intake of trans-fats, found in most margarines, snack foods, heavily processed foods and some cooking oils. Trans-fats can reduce your “good” cholesterol levels and raise your “bad” ones.
  • Limit your intake of salt (sodium). Read the label. Your sodium intake should be less than 1,500 mg per day. Excessive salt in the diet has been linked to high blood pressure and heart disease.
  • Breathe deeply to improve stress control. Try it twice a day for three to five minutes.
  • Avoid smoking. And do not breathe in second hand smoke.
  • Get a good night’s sleep. Adequate sleep is essential to maintain a healthy body.
  • Wash your hands frequently. This will help stop the spread of germs.
