Dr. Gelvin came highly recommended by a coworker and I am very pleased with the service he provides. He is always prompt, kind, and explains everything well. Additionally, I have a very busy schedule and he would always find time to fit me in. I called the office one afternoon to say that I would be 30 minutes late to my 4:45 appointment and to see if I could reschedule, but Dr. Gelvin stayed late to see me. His medical assistant and staff have also been wonderful.

I have been going to Dr Gelvin for about 15 years and since I have been on Medicare it seems he has to many patients and concentrates on one subject. Was told by his staff that I had pulmonary fibrosis which was diagnosed by the radiologists that read the CT scan, went to a lung doctor and he looked at the CT scan and said; you do not have that I worried about diagnosis for 6 weeks before I could get an appointment with this lung doctor the lung doctor sent Dr Gelvin a copy of his report.

Dr Gelvin was suggested to me by family members. A nice enough guy, but over the @2 years I saw him, I felt at times like he was practicing medicine by trial and error. At one point I developed a rash; I went back 3 different times whereby I saw him and his two assistants, and each time they re-diagnosed the cause of the rash and prescribed me something completely different. Told me to stop taking BP & cholesterol meds during treatment: I had a heart attack during this time. Not recommended.

Caring, professional and knowledgeable practice committed to the best in primary care including referrals. New to Sarasota, they treated my wife and myself as old friends. Can't say enough positive about them. The best.

This guys the pits. He was recomended by a friend. He comes in, looks at your chart and runs out as soon as possible evidently to get to the next patient. Keeps the money rolling in. Immediately perscribed 2 medications and was gone in a flash. After visiting another doctor was told the 2 medications he perscribed would have made my condition worse. Stay away from this one.
