Dr.Gelfand is the best rheumatologist around, but he's moved to a new office and the people that work there are all new people and I don't think they have a clue about what dr Gelfand is actually treating there. They seem to have no clue about the disease the drs they are working for treat.

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.
