HORRIBLE! I could NOT move my right hand the pain was horrible he came in SQUEEZED my hand until I screamed! Then he said you may have tendonitis told the asst to get him a needle to inject my hand. When I asked what was going on, how did I get it & what was the injection for he said You want to feel better right & stuck me with the needle & said if it comes back in 4-6weeks you may need surgery. He has NO BED side manners SMH he was very rude needless to say the pain came back I went to ANOTHER Dr who was AWESOME he did my surgery. I told him how he is so professional,kind & helpful verses Dr Gelman. He said I hear that all the time & I don't have to advertise because I get ALL of Gelman clients LOL

This person who says he is a doc is a liar, if you want to increase your pain and never be cured bye all means go to him I had two unrelated experiences with him concerning orthopedic care ha! Both times while in waiting rooms other patients who were operated on bye him we're in pain and butchered pins out legs casts you name it like out of a horror movie . I had severe cervical damage due to car accident . I saw many doctors over a period of 4 years all said I was in bad shape except him

Complete monster! Both my husband and I have crossed paths with this man and both experiences were horrible. Did nothing to address our pain. Didn't even look at me before he said he couldn't help me. Told my husband he was malingering. Just a joke! Beware!!! We both saw other doctors, had our legitimate injuries treated properly. Stay away!

My first appt with Dr. Gilman was today and I am impressed. He was interested in what I had to say and in troubleshooting why this 30+ years of chronic pain is still with me. He gave me hope!!

Do not expect Dr. Gelman to have your best interests in a Workman Comp case. He acted purely in the interest of the employer. He became very upset when an MRI was ordered by another Dr. showing problems he wasn't addressing.

Went in to see Dr. Gelman because of shoulder pain. I could not bench press or even put my arm behind my back. He took multiple sets of pictures and eventually told me I was 37, "middle aged", and told me I was going to have to live with the pain. Are you serious?? The only medical diagnosis he could give me was that I might have a little arthritis. I then went to another doctor and I kid you not, he diagnosed a frozen shoulder in less than a minute. Completely pain free now. Do not recommend!

Terrible doc. My pain has persisted for over 6 months and over multiple treatments (PT, chiropractic, pain killers). As I was telling him about previous blood tests, he was literally googling the significance of one of the blood tests. He criticized me for even coming to see him. He made an extremely rude remark about my meds for depression and anxiety, and criticized me for being on muscle relaxants for so long (I can't stand or walk w/o them). I left his office in tears. Do not recommend.
