    Delray Beach, FL |
    Took the time to listen to my concerns and addressed them appropriately. I took my 14 year old daughter who has been having consistent knee pains. I liked how he explained the root cause of the issue and the right way to resolve it. A very conservative approach. Though a surgery could have a been solution too, liked the way he decided to use the physical therapy considering the age and the situation. Highly recommended.

    Dr Gelb thoroughly and patiently reviewed all options with me. Ultimately i opted for surgery and couldnt be happier with the outcome. Yes his office is crowded but theres a reason for that- he is by far the best at what he does. Hes a brilliant surgeon who is an MD, not a DO which makes a huge difference. Highly recommend!

    De Gelb is horrible, unprofessional & no bed manners. He lies to his patients telling them is a simple procedure but once you are under the knife he does what ever he wants. He did surgery on bicep implanted bio screws without my permission on the day of the surgery. I had a allergic reaction to the bio screws and refuse to treat me after the allergie came out. He kicked me out of his office which I had to go to another surgeon and everything was removed lost total movement of my arm. Run

    Dr Gelb has performed surgery of my shoulders and did an excellent job. His physical therapy staff is very good and helped me recover quickly.
