I can’t rate this surgeon high enough! We’re honored to know him, and you'd be hard-pressed to find another as skilled. He performed multiple surgeries on our son and remains connected and well-informed on our case to this day. Our son loves Dr. Jelin despite our son's apprehension towards medical staff. He’s a brilliant and amazing person, which are sentiments shared by every parent we've met whose child had Jelin as a surgeon. Long-story short; your child will be in the hands of a true master!

My teenage daughter is a patient and had surgery performed by Dr. Jelin, in May, and he could not have been more accommodating, helpful and attentive. He was always extremely communicative (still is) and quick to respond to questions (he gave me his email to communicate directly) and his beside manner and kindness is truly a special rarity. Her surgery went wonderfully and he was with us, every step of the way, for her recovery. I would not hesitate to go back to him or to recommend him.

Very caring and attentive. Gave us his cell phone number after our son's surgery and responded promptly to all of our questions.
