Patient Comments (1)
in Canoga Park |
Very rarely does one come across a doctor who REALLY wants to genuinely help people. Dr. Gellerman is exactly that type of person. I, personally, prefer an older physician. I appreciate many years of experience. He was extremely thorough with my exam, and didn't leave anything unexplored. My left eye became very irritated and RED. I need to be very careful since I've had a cornea transplant in that eye. Dr. Gellerman sincerely cared about my well being. Thank you!
