No one likes to talk about this subject. Especially when you've had problems your whole life & nothing has really helped. You have the same embarrassing conversation with doctor after doctor and nothing improves. Then you meet Dr. Gelzayd, and your life changes. He has the ability to put you at ease about a very private subject. He speaks in language you can relate to, without being graphic, and lets you feel completely normal. Then he works at getting your GI tract back to normal. Love him

Dr. Gelzayd was both courteous and calm. His demeanor made it quite easy for me to share with him my health concerns. His professional and specialty experience seemed exactly what I would have expected from a top doctor. I have read comments regarding his staff. My experience with Dr. Gelzayd's staff was fine. I would definitely recommend Dr. Gelzayd to anyone needing a reputable gastroenterologist!

I found Dr. Galzayd to be a very nice doctor in all respects. He took the time to explain exactly what my procedure would accomplish and how it would be done. After the procedure he again spent the time with me to explain in detail the results and what to expect in the future. I feel very comfortable that I am informed on how best to take care of my issues and lead the healthiest life I can.

I have seen my share of doctors year after year for medical issues that I've had since I was a teenager. I would go see doctor and maybe one more time to the same doctor for a follow up and then be done. I tried for awhile to get into Dr. Gelzayd. The second he was back on my insurance plan I made an appointment. In the long history of doctors I have had, Dr. Gelzayd is the FIRST doctor that I feel really cares about my well being. The amount of time he takes to read through every medical record

Dr. Gelzayd is one of the pleasantest, thoughtful, informative docs I have seen in my 69 years. My first visit was today. I was very impressed with his staff, who were most helpful (not always the case in most docs offices) and the Doc quite impressive. He didn't rush, told me all he was thinking and made me feel very confident in his care. I would recommend him to anyone who needs his specialty.

Dr Gelzayd is Ok but his staff is very rude.
Phoenix, AZ |
Very kind and thorough in explaining plan of care and goals for my treatment. I appreciate the old school appointment where the doctor actually spends more than 15 minutes with the patient. The best doctor that I have had ever been treated since moving to Arizona 16 years ago
Scottsdale, AZ |
The staff is quite rude, incosiderate, and unhelpful. Gelzayd himself is fine.
in Gilbert, AZ |
I have seen 4 or 5 different GI specialists over the past 13 years because of the fact that I moved and there was some difficulty in making my diagnosis. I was referred to Dr Gelzayd by a very choosy family friend. He is extremely thorough and caring. He spends the appropriate time will all of his patients. He is very well read and intelligent and I highly recommend him to anyone that is having any kind of tummy trouble.

He was very rude to me! The staff looked terrible, Sweatshirt and jeans, One had mismatched scrubs . Both had dirty hair!
