Dear Dr. Gendler,
You have been so supportive over the years and through my turmoil in trying to conceive. Thank you so much! I finally want to share some good news, which is that we have been working with an amazing surrogate and are expecting a baby girl, due July 14th! I’ll keep you posted, but wanted to let you know I’ve thought of your kindness toward me over the years, many times, and am so grateful for your care for me as your patient and for your advice and guidance during my struggle.
Hope you are doing very well and have a terrific summer! You know what I’ll be doing!
I am writing to thank you for all that you have done for our son who is currently a junior in college. M suffered from severe acne through middle school and high school. He was being actively treated for years by a highly regarded dermatologist near our home in NJ, but no meaningful progress was made in helping him. We finally brought him to you for a second opinion, and you have literally changed his life. You recommended Accutane, and we hesitated at first, given the stated side effects and the fact that Matt had been diagnosed with fatty liver. Despite his fatty liver condition, M’s general practitioner cleared him to try Accutane, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. His acne is gone, his face looks terrific, and his self-confidence has soared. He has not suffered negative side effects from the medication. His college experience has been terrific, and we really think his positive self-image has been a meaningful contributor to his success. Our only regret is not coming to see you sooner.
Thank you again for everything.
M.E. and P.E.
I’m seriously obsessed with you. How do you do what you do? You’re a genius. How does the face keep getting better & better? I don’t understand it. I LOVE IT.
I love you more than my words could ever describe. You make me feel so much better about how I look—
To my amazing doctor and favorite human,
Just thought I would pass along a rave review. I was out on a date Saturday evening.
After 2 hours of lovely conversation, the subject of dating during the 2nd chapter of life came up. I openly shared my age.
My Date’s jaw dropped. He said with the utmost sincerity that I looked 10 years younger than 56. I told him that I have good genes but a GREAT Dermatologist..who keeps me safe and feeling beautiful.( I had to put the good genes comment in)
Just thought I would pass the grateful vibes along.
Wishing you, your family and the super heros at gendler dermatology a very happy thanksgiving!
With love, a grateful heart and the perfect upside down triangle!!
I wanted to write to you and thank you. You are incredible!!! Your work is amazing. I can’t get over the difference the fillers and the little bit of botox (thank you!) made in my appearance.
Aside from being such a wonderful person – I love our little chats – you do incredible work.
I wish I had found you years ago.
Thank you for taking care of Julia this coming Tuesday.
Have a great weekend.
All my best,
I am a fair-skinned female with a long history of both families and my own different types of skin cancers.
I had developed a scaly area on my scalp in the hairline.
I had presented it to my Florida Dermatologist during 3 different
Body check visits.
He kept reassuring me that this could possibly be a wart or I had banged my head.
Having been familiar with past skin cancers I was not satisfied with his diagnosis.
You would think with my extensive history a biopsy was in order.
On a trip to New York City with my husband, I sought out the expertise of 5th Avenue Dermatologist Dr. Ellen Gender.
As I suspected Dr.Gendler took one look and immediately biopsied the lesion and was correct. It was a basal cell that must have been there for a very long time.
I had a major Mohs’ surgery with a large resection.
I owe Dr. Gendler for her sharp eye and expertise in skin cancer diagnosis and the large knowledge of skin cancer protection products.
Especially in the areas that are hard to see to the naked eye.
After many months of healing, I am happy to say all my hair has grown back and I’m as good as new.
One lesson to be learned, The Best is The Best.
And that is Dr. Ellen Gendler.
In honor of thanksgiving weekend I just wanted to send a special thank you to both you and Dr. Gendler. Thank you for always writing back, your kindness , patience and caring, and for all the help and guidance you give me. It means a lot and I’m very grateful.:)
And a very special thank you to Dr. Gendler. When my dog first attacked me, and I first met Dr. Gendler I was feeling as if I’d be deformed forever . She immediately put me at ease, with her humor, empathy, kindness and mapped out a plan of what we could do. She was like an angel to me in truly the darkest most frightening time of my life. She continues to always make me feel calm and taken care of, and she is a true artist with an amazing eye for detail. I know it’s because of her that I have my confidence back and feel like me again. I’m so happy I did the filler, it is really helping me because I don’t obsess about the scar any more, and that is helping me move through the trauma and put it behind me. I guess I will have to keep up with the filler because emotionally it’s made a huge difference in how I feel. So thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you for seeing me yesterday to look at the shingles. As you may imagine, I was/am very concerned about having shingles on my face. I’ve so much confidence in your judgement and it gives me great comfort to know that I can call upon you and that I am in the best of care.
You really are a unique and special physician (and person) and I appreciate your commitment to providing me with such great care whether it’s for a skin issue or other medical problem. I’ll always remember when you said “I’m a doctor!” in response to my saying I didn’t want to bother you around Thanksgiving and that it would’ve been fine to contact you. I think that sums it up as to your dedication to your profession and patients!
