Dr. Gelfand was a great dr until they opened this ammicus arthritis center. I never get a return call from the dr., which never happened before, and the staff is not friendly or helpful and I don't think any of the staff have a clue about the diseases the Drs they are working for treat. I've been a patient for 33 years and since he moved I've been very displeased

I would definitely recommend Dr. Gelfand, but Amicus Group is not good. They do not answer their phones. They make you leave a message and do not call back. I had to personally drive over there to get a lab requisition to get blood work because they would not respond to me or the lab and had to go to appointment before I could get treatment even though I had been seeing doctor for 5 years because he changed to new facility when I had been told i could get treatment when I came in.
