He spends the time to understand

I wanted to let you know that I appreciate the care and time I have received from Dr. Gelman and his staff. I am a newer patient and I have found Dr. Gelman very caring. He spends the time to understand my health. It is also important to note how pleasant and helpful the ladies in the office are.

The Best!

The best! Dr. Gelman is so thorough, he cares for his patients. He is great. When I need him he is there every time and I have needed him lately. His staff is great and they go above an beyond to help when you are sick to navigate our health care system.

Goes above and beyond.

Dr. Gelman is one of the most caring and thorough primary care physicians, I have ever had. I have had him for 4 + years and always is attentive to my health needs and goes above and beyond. The day Dr. Gelman decides to retire is definitely going to be a sad day because it going to be hard to find someone to build a patient doctor relationship like this especially with their outstanding staff! Keep up the great job!

Excited to work with you!
