    Dr Gelber runs his appointments exactly on time, no waiting. Dr explained everything about my stroke, in great detail. The stroke team at St Johns hospital was a joke compaired to Gelber. He answered all of my questions, did not rush me, and his office was a great help on follow up questions by phone. Dr Gelber also treats my step-daughter for MS. She lives on the east coast and travels back here just to continue seeing Gelber. New appointments are 8 months out. He is in high demand.
