Patient Comments (5)
in Long Beach, CA |
Dr. Gelb leaves the examining room door open while with patient so he can carry on a conversation with people down the hall while he is PRETENDING to listen to the patient. He also answers personal phone calls (talking about tennis or ???) while with the patient. Every visit with him felt like he was on his way out the door to be somewhere else.

Our experience with Dr. Gelb is of high level dissatisfaction. Dr Gelbs professional mannerism displayed lack of morals and ethics when determining the heath of our son. Our recommendation to other families is " refuse" this Doctors service he gives very little support to the families does not understand the patient or caregivers concerns and will not allow the voice of the family to be heard or taken into consideration. Dr. Gelb unprofessional physician!

Dr. Gelb is such a terrific doctor. He is one of the rare doctors who truly spends time with you to discuss anything you may be seeing him for. He is extremely knowledgeable, caring and attentive to all details of your situation. I can't say enough about him. Also, his staff is wonderful!
