Dr Gelfand is by far one of the best pulmonologists, if not pediatricians I have ever utilized. He is considerate, knowledgable and take the time necessary to educate patients and parents. He was the only physician willing to work until we found a cause for my teenage sons high fever. Dr Gelfand found us a solution and relief from what had been weeks long illness. Dr Gelfand has truly been a gift to mine and my childrens lives

I find it surprising that Dr. Gelfand has a 5 star rating. In fact, I am convinced that he wrote these reviews himself. If you met him personally you would understand why I say that. He is an arrogant doctor that does not listen to his patients at all because according to him he is the best in DFW. If he was so good he would have caught that my son had pneumonia instead he didn't catch it and when I took him to another hospital because I knew he was sick the second pulmonoligst caught it. Please
