He is compassionate and cares about his patients. Great listener and gives you all the time you need. He will not give up on you and your pain and gets to the root of the problem when you have exhausted all other medical professionals. Great doctor and person!!!!

The administrative staff is awful. Dr. Gellhorn great. Both appointments - they were unable to find in the schedule when I called to confirm. Endless wait times on hold - I had to sit on hold forever and speak to several people to find out I did in fact have appointments. They forgot to give me a referral for physical therapy, and now my doctor has to mail it to me. My experience with most of the administratiive end of Weill Cornell NY Presp. is bad - but this office is noticable worse.
