Everyone in the was very pleasant. I've never seen this new Dr.but I like him.

I arrived with a typed out list of information and questions. My efforts were completely ignored. I felt as if I has to beg for an Xray to see if things had changed...I felt like a cow being pushed through the chute to get onto the next cow/person. The quick and easy answer was give me a shot, send me out the door, come see me in 6 weeks. I am thankful when I requested therapy, that was granted. I am seeing wonderful results!

Had all of my questions answered and concerns addressed. Was not with a typical care provider but a surgeon to discuss scheduling a surgery.

The doctor said I had gout and he could not help me. Told me to see my primaryCare doctor and have him refer me to a Rheumatologist.

Mark Gelfand has horrible bedside manner. I felt completely disregarded. I feel like he did not listen or take me seriously and he had his mind made up before he walked into my room. I started crying from stress and disappointment after he walked out. At no point was the door shut so everyone walking by got to look in and see me crying. What a waste of time and money. The nurse was awesome. The security robot in the parking lot was fun to see. The only saving graces.

Dr Gelfand was very nice and took the time to make sure I recovered from my hand surgery as expected

  Nov 16, 2023
Good orthopedic testing, did refer for an MRI, did seem to pay enough attention to symptoms.

  Nov 13, 2023
My 4 hour surgery turned into a 4 day stay with no explanation

  Nov 2, 2023
I was pleased with everything.

  Oct 26, 2023
I really n ended Dr Gelfand's help to contextualize my surgery. He did a great job walking me through everything. I appreciate his care for my feelings.

I have yet to had a bad visit and for that I'm blessed.

I wanted information about scar revision and the cost.

  Oct 2, 2023
He was not able to help yet. I needed a referral to a different doctor

The provider is kind and has a gentle approach. Listening and responding to questions. Remembered me from 4 years ago when I saw him as well as remembering my husband

  Sep 13, 2023
The Dr explained to me nice and easy and the technical was nice and helpful

I am so impressed with Dr. Gelfand's approach to my condition - trigger finger - and his P.A..'s , Summer, "bedside manner". They are both excellent.

Got seen almost immediately. Was in the exam room for a bit longer than I thought but I understand that sometimes you have to split your time at work to have everything go smoothly so I wasn't mad.

  Aug 21, 2023
Waited 45 minutes and had to go to ask how much longer,then they said they would squeeze me in they said to take a seat and I said would I have to wait another 45 minutes , I got in shortly after Dr was in a hurry, after waiting 6 weeks for the appointment I wasn't treated very well. I don't think I will go back to that office.

  Aug 17, 2023
I would have liked to talk to him about my plantar fasciitis and tendon problems to see if that's part of my hand problem. I would've also like to walk out of there knowing a little more about if I had any limitation on weight lifting on my hand or what I should be doing with my hand besides just wearing a brace only at night since it's been four months since I had my hand free. But other than that the doctor and everybody were friendly and everything just seemed like they were in a real hurry.

The provider appears very busy.

I like the way Dr. Gelfand is managing treatment of my injury.
