Dr Gellhorn is absolutely outstanding. Courteous, professional and competent, he never disappoints. If tendonitis is your ailment then Dr Gelhorn is your doctor. The office staff provide exceptional care and service as well. I travelled 20 hours because I will not see another specialist.

Dr. Gellhorn is one of those doctors who inspires absolute confidence. I suspected that I had a torn rotator cuff and two different GPs I spoke with insisted I see Dr. Gellhorn before going straight to an orthopedic surgeon, so he came highly recommended and it's easy to see why. He's clearly an expert in his field, and also one of those doctors who takes enough time to listen very carefully and compassionately to his patients. A stellar combination.

Dr. Gellhorn identified a fractured rib with sonogram and prescribed physical therapy. He is extraordinarily careful, thorough, friendly, and he communicates very well about medical issues and is open to questions. The facility at Weill Cornell downtown is clean and measures to prevent cornovirus transmission are excellent.
