Patient Comments (2)

Wow, this is a rare and great doctor. Dr. Gellman actually treats you as a patient and not a number. He listens to you, talks to you and not at you. This doctor is a rare gem to find in South Florida. I would defiantly say he is one doctor to see. And the staff is great.

Was referred to Dr. Hellman by my PCP. After 4 calls over three months, never got an appointment. Good thing this was only preventative care and not a serious problem.
