in Bal Harbour, FL |
Really helped my wife.s “chemobrain”, after a course of immunotherapy for lung cancer. Dr. Gelblum is considered one of South Florida,’s top neurologists, and now I know why. My wife had received one of the new immunotherapy agents for cancer. Unfortunately, it left her with some dementia symptoms. Dr. Gelblum was quick to recognize this syndrome, and started her on a medication brain-stimulating regimen that restored her memory and cognition. The man is caring and amazing! Office staff super.

Dr. Gelblum helped me with my horrible headaches when no one else could. He took the time to figure out every detail, and then created a specific regimen, which relied on natural vitamins, and just a small dose of inexpensive prescription medication. His bedside manner is great; the staff is excellent. There is even a little service dog name Scooter to make you feel right at home. They do TeleHealth encounters, so you don't have to miss work to see the doctor in follow-up. Highly Recommend!
in Miami Beach, FL |
This compassionate and caring doctor took,a lot of time and energy to work through my long headache history, and develop a treatment regimen that finally works -- where other neurologists had failed. His bedside manner is great, and the staff is friendly and efficient. His little service dog, Scooter, helps everyone feel at home in this warm and inviting office. My follow-up visits are now conducted via TeleHealth; so I don't have to miss work to visit the doctor. Highly recommend!

Dr. Gelblum is not only very knowledgeable in his field but also very intuitive and a great doctor all around. Something difficult to find these days. I highly recommend him. R. Iverson Miami, FL
in Hallandale, FL |
I have been with Dr Gelblum for a number of years would never dream of looking for another practice. He is always spot on and very caring every time I am there. The office manger of the Aventura office has helped me above and beyond from the moment I started there. Caroline really is the heart of the office. The staff is very caring as well. Care and caring are a huge part of a medical practice. Linda Hallandale Fl

Dr Gelblum is a true innovator. In addition to being a great neurologist, he is always searching for new ways to accomodate his patients' needs. Dr. Gelblum has done a great job in controlling my migraines with medication that needs periodic follow-up. Unfortunately, it is often difficult for me to to take time off from work for my scheduled appointments. Dr. Gelblum has launched a TeleHealth App which permits a virtual appointment from my smartphone to his desktop. Fantastic!
in Miami, FL |
Dr.Gelblum is the best doctor and neurologist I have ever seen and met.He is very nice with his patients and takes the time to explain you everything and send you the correct medication and exams. I totally recommend him as the best doctor I have ever had in my life. He is just amazing and very honest. If you need a good neurologist please do not even think about it just go to see Dr Gelblum the best..

I have muscle spasms, which more recently started to involve my vocal cords, making my work and social life very difficult. The meds I was taking were no longer working, and higher doses made me drowsy. I heard about Dr Gelblum, and made an appointment. This neurologist is a true gentleman, with great bedside manner and excellent staff. Dr Gelblum recommended medical marijuana which is helping my condition. Limb and vocal tremors are better, and I am reducing my meds. Highly recommend !!
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
I am currently treating with Dr Gelblum for lifelong seizure disorder. I have gone through multiple anti-seizure medications and have developed numerous side effects. Dr. Gelblum recommended that I try CBD -- medicinal marijuana now legal in Florida. I am happy to report that CBD has reduced my seizure frequency, and I am regaining my life. I am very grateful to have found a forward-thinking physician like Dr Gelblum. I highly recommend. His staff is very helpful and friendly.
I found Dr Gelblum personable and thoughtful. But, I am sorry to say that the staff who answer his calls and do his billing are horrible. I tried to arrange a PET scan for two weeks, and had to cancel two appointments due to their incompetence. I think that the doctor is a very intelligent doctor and I would like to stay with him but they have so far made this impossible.
Dear Patient, I am sorry to hear about the scheduling problem for your PET scan. We scheduled a PET scan at Elite Imaging for 12/8/16. Elite failed to obtain the authorization (beyond our control). You then rescheduled the test at West Boca Medical Center closer to your home, where we re-faxed your records. Authorization was then re-obtained at West Boca Medical, and when our receptionist, Kathy, called you to confirm your appointment, you cancelled and refused to reschedule.

Dr. Gelblum told me there wasn't time to complete a nerve conduction study the day of my exam and I needed to do it the next day. I asked his office manager Carolina Garcia if there was any way the test could be done then, so I could start treatment sooner to relieve my pain. She consulted with technician David Garcia and they decided to try it - and he was able to finish it in time. He even called his wife to pick up their child so he could stay and complete the test on me. What service!

Dr. Gelblum is an exceptional physician! His office administrator Carolina Varriale Garcia is extremely professional and an asset to his practice. His front office staff is wonderful. Rodny Thompson and Emily Perez are Superfine!
in Miami Beach, FL |
I have been to see Dr. Gelblum for three different health issues. When no one else could find what was wrong Dr. Gelblum identified the problems. I recently had a terrible pain in my arm that was truly unbearable. His lovely assistant, Emily, put me in a room to lay down. Dr. Gelblum immediately diagnosed me with Shingles! He is a genius, the best diagnostic Doctor, and and incredibly caring doctor. To have such faith in a Doctor is so reassuring. I am lucky to have found him.

Dr. Gelblum assisted in diagnosing and treating my father who has dementia. He is thorough, smart, and attentive. He is also extremely caring and genuine. I could not be happier with him by my side during this difficult road of having aging and sickly parent. I recommend him 100 percent.
in Miami, FL |
After a viral illness, I experienced stinging and burning in my right arm. An orthopedic consultation, recommended spine surgery for a "bulging disc". This would have benched me for the entire season. The team doctor recommended a neurological consultation with Dr. Gelblum, and I am so thankful. Dr. Gelblum found the problem to be from a nerve 'plexus' of my arm, and not at all from my neck. I completed a course of physiotherapy and am 100% better. He and his entire staff deserve a trophy.
in South Miami, FL |
Dr. Gelblum was suggested by several friends who believe that he is the best in town, and now I see why. I had bad leg pain for many years. I had previously seen a spine doctor who told me that it was due to a pinched lumbar nerve and that I required surgery. Dr Gelblum's exam was thorough and skillful. He discovered that my pain was unrelated to my spine and related to my cholesterol medication. He switched that around, and I am pain-free. Bedside manner great; staff excellent. Recommend!!
in Boca Raton, FL |
Super diagnostician, and amazing human being! Cured my spasms by recommending a new CBD regimen, and I am now able to wean off my prescription pain medications. I was in a bad car accident years ago, and have been suffering ever since. Now, I am so much better. His staff is kind and accommodating. The doctor has an amazing personality and bedside manner. I highly recommend.
Miami, FL |
Would give 0 stars if I could. He was the worst doctor that I've ever been to. He was arrogant, condescending and cut me off while I was talking. He was the most unempathetic individual I've ever met and that is not what you want for as your doctor. No person deserves to have a doctor like this.
in Miami, FL |
Super neurologist! Helped control my disabling migraines when no one else could. I highly recommend. Office staff is very kind, professional, and efficient.
in Miami Gardens, FL |
This doctor is the best. He asks questions about his patients and will easily and quickly diagnose. He always says if there are any problems don't hesitate to call. I truly feel comfortable with him, glad I found him.
in Miami, FL |
In my opinion, the best in his field.
in Ft Lauderdale, FL |
Super diagnostician with excellent and helpful office staff. I came to Dr. Gelblum after visiting several other neurologists. I was experiencing a horrible headache disorder which was causing me to miss work and was taking time away from my family. Dr. Gelblum undertook some comprehensive testing which revealed an underlying blood inflammation. This problem was quickly treated and I am now headache-free. This physician is highly knowledgeable and has a great bedside manner.
in Aventura, FL |
Doctor Gelblum is a rare breed of physicians as he is not only extremely competent and professional, but he truly cares about his patients who are not just numbers. He also has an unbelievable sense of humor, which always make the experience even better. Although he is a neurologist, he is my go to guy for everything health related. Additionally, he has a great office staff that shows that they also care about their patients! A+++ all the way around!
Excellent diagnostician and very caring neurologist, with super efficient staff. Great bedside manner. Super diagnostician who came highly recommended from another doctor, as well as some family friends. Definitely worth making an appointment. Recently relocated from New York, and needed some follow-up in Miami. Dr Gelblum is certainly on par with the best in New York City, and elsewhere.
