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.

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.

Like the doctor

Great Experience-no problem with any aspect of my care.

Gelfand is direct, to the point, not particularly squishy but he is an excellent listener. I scored with this guy.He also asked Immediately about my other health/ needing an organ Issues before even the hand. I really liked that. He could be a little nicer to his staff. I heard him in the hall being bossy but that's why he is so good. I had carcinoid cancer and this surgeon was similar in personality but they know their stuff. Gelfand gave me by very best options and I appreciate him.

Just that, I got called very quickly to go to the room to wait for the doctor. But with the door shut and waiting 20 minutes I got very uncomfortable. I would rather wait in the waiting room.

The physician and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. I was extremely happy with the care I received

What I would expect of professionals.

  Mar 15, 2023
He was a good doctor, but seemed annoyed that I chose to have my cyst drained (it didnt drain). He seemed a little dismissive of the issues ive been having with it. He believes its something else. And not what all the other doctors think

  Mar 15, 2023
It was good timely and efficient

  Feb 9, 2023
My only criticism would be that the clinic did not communicate with me about the scheduling of a surgical procedure. I just saw it in my chart, then the procedure disappeared from my chart. I ended up calling the clinic and spoke with someone who straightened things out for me.

Great doctor. Caring, knowledgeable, I am looking forward to see him again when I need help.

  Jan 26, 2023
Everyone in the office put me at ease. My Dr was caring and explained everything thoroughly.

  Jan 19, 2023
Very professional, and explained with details.

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.

  Jan 18, 2023
Staff and dr were very professional and thorough. Would definitely recommend to others

  Dec 14, 2022
I feel the receptionist could have been a little more friendly.

  Dec 12, 2022
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.

I felt brushed off, like my concerns weren't warranted.
