My Husband has been seeing Dr. Gelb for years now. He is very Professional and has a great bed side manner. He really cares about his Patients. I would highly recommend him if you are looking for the Best Doctor out there.

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.
