Great initial visit. Dr. G. spent all the time necessary to go over my cardiac history and made very good suggestions for future treatment and care. I found her personable and professional.

Visited Dr. Gelbman for a routine Cardiology exam. My report of discomfort in another medical area drew her interest and concern. She ordered blood work related to my complaints, and called back three hours later with results reflecting high numbers. She immediately set up the mechanism for follow up with my Internist. First rate Doctor.

Exceptional talent, superb communication skills, without exaggeration clearly the most astute doctor I have had the good fortune to meet. Dr's time is very much sought after and so appointments are necessarily few and far between and worth every brilliant bit of the wait. Highly, highly recommended.

Dr. Gelbman has an appropriate first name: Joy. She is a highly qualified, patient centric, capable Cardiologist. She is a good listener and a thorough practitioner. She and her associates are my “cardio-angels”. I am fortunate to be one of her patients. You would be too!! Kudos!!

Dr. Gelbman took the time to explain treatment options and what the results would mean in my situation. She scheduled appropriate tests for me, so we could go over the diagnosis clearly in order to decide what course of action would be suitable for me.

I have been under the care of Dr. Gelbman for over 5 years. During my time under her care I have found that she is very knowledgeable about my condition and very concerned with the appropriate course of treatment. She clearly explains what is going on with my heart, arteries valves etc. , listens to and answers my questions in a clear and understandable manner. I completely trust her with the continued care of my hert.

She spent enough time with me, but I felt she was too aggressive in her treatment approach without asking me pertinent background questions.

After my first two or three visits with Dr. Gelbman, I'm very pleased with her interaction with me and I have great confidence in her advice. Additionally, the follow-up from her and her office staff regarding complications with a potential change in a medication was very well handled.
