    I think the doctor goes through his motions. I do not think he listens, and is quite dismissive of patient input. Seems to attribute all mu ailments to stress. How stressful can your life be in Seattle.?

    Been going to Dr. Geltzer for many years now, over ten years. Never had any problems, listens to problems and comes up with working solutions. Is happy to explain stuff in detail when I drill down with questions. Pretty solid doctor.

    This doctor does not allow hus patients to participate in their health care. He rules with fear and flat out denies the side effects of the medication he perscribes. He is stubborn and closed to any ideas except hus own. I would give him a 'zero' if I could. Do yourself a favor and go anywhere else.

    Horrible! Brought 82 yo mom (w health issues) for ck up. Refr'd to him, as her 40+ yrs dr retired from Overlake Internal Med Asc. He acted like he could care less about her. My siblings & I agreed he almost seemed annoyed to have her as a patient. Recently called for help w pharmacy/prescrip...his new asst = HORRIBLE! Total jerk. His ofc recently lmsg saying time for her annual ck up. Before I could cb to schedule, got a new call saying he's DROPPING her as a patient! GOOD RIDDANCE! 0 stars.

    Dr. Geltzer has been my primary care physician for several years and has taken excellent care of me. In addition to annual physicals and treating sudden medical issues he has provided excellent referrals. I would recommend him highly.
