in Springfield, IL |
Was told at first appointment by Dr. Gelber "that we are are going to get this figured out" in regards to my numbness, pain and memory problems. Completed a neurological examination and failed so Dr. Gelber ordered a spinal tap . It came back normal and I just got a call today saying that there is nothing else that Dr. Gelber can do for me since the tap was normal and I have to go back to my primary doctor despite the concerning neuro exam to be referred elsewhere. Felt abandoned and misled .

This office has had several staffing changes in the past two years, resulting in poorly kept records, mistakes and long wait times for labs and Dr's notes not documented. Nerve studies were done on he wrong limbs due to lack of documentation by Dr.

Impatient, interrupted a lot, felt rushed and unimportant.

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.
