Dr. Gelfand had good previous history regarding this current health problem and referred/ contrasted today's visit with this history, making today's analysis easy to understand.

The entire team, from urgent care to Dr office to surgical staff, was exceptional. Pharmacy at hospital was poor at communicating, but everyone else was stellar. Improved my opinion of industrialized medicine.

This was my first visit to Dr. Gelfand, as my previous hand specialist had retired. He exceeded my expectations, and he came highly recommended.

Dr. Gelfand listened to my scheduling concerns for reconstructive surgery following a bilateral mastectomy. He very clearly explained the procedure and how we could fit it into my calendar configuration. He was a very kind.

Provider was very curt. Didn't invite further discussion. He's a referral so once this surgery is done it should be the end of it.

Had to ask for my x-rays to be sent so that I wouldn't be charged for x-rays at the appointment.

I felt the doctor and staff were compassionate and helpful. I was worried I wouldn't get seen for a long time and heal incorrectly, but they got me in on the same day once I tracked them down. My doctor's office referred us to a facility that was no longer in operation so if I hadn't called, it never would've happened. So I had to initiate help but once I did, I got help after much effort and time spent tracking help down.

He had poor bedside manner'. He didn't try to understand what I was asking just got frustrated giving the exact same answer 3 times. I kept asking cuz I wasn't getting the information I needed. He didn't explain much beyond the X-ray at all. Just said wear the splint, keep it dry, see you in 4 weeks

Even though the MRI and x-ray showed a cyst. I am confused as to why this is not going to be removed. I have periods of pain, and not going to go away on its own. Will follow up with my provider

Dr. Gelfand (and team) made me feel safe and secure during a potentially troubling time. He made sure I was heard and I am happy w/the results.

Dr Gelfand is not local for me. If he practiced closer to where I live he'd have 10 stars

The only thing Dr Gelfand could work on is being a little more friendly; making a connection with his patient and finding out a little more about them than just the current surgical situation. It would help a lot of patients be less anxious about their current circumstances. He was very thorough and kind, so please don't misinterpret this constructive criticism.
