    Very kind and thorough in explaining plan of care and goals for my treatment. I appreciate the "old school" appointment where the doctor actually spends more than 15 minutes with the patient. The best doctor that I have had ever been treated since moving to Arizona 16 years ago

    The staff is quite rude, incosiderate, and unhelpful. Gelzayd himself is fine.

    I have seen 4 or 5 different GI specialists over the past 13 years because of the fact that I moved and there was some difficulty in making my diagnosis. I was referred to Dr Gelzayd by a very choosy family friend. He is extremely thorough and caring. He spends the appropriate time will all of his patients. He is very well read and intelligent and I highly recommend him to anyone that is having any kind of "tummy" trouble.
