Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gellman "I feel every patient should be given the time necessary for a full evaluation and diagnosis. I always try to listen to what the patient has to say. Listening will often result in a clear diagnosis and answer. I do not rush my patients, this may result in my practice running behind schedule, but the benefit to the patient of a thorough evaluation after listening to the story, problem, and symptoms usually results in an accurate diagnosis and therefore a well treated patient."
