What People Say About Dr. Mark Gelwan, MD
Reply
I have a lot of faith in Dr. Gelwan. He tells me my options and explains the procedures, usually with a pamphlet also. I have been using him for many years as he was recommended by my Optometrist. He and his assistants are very warm and courteous. I have been recommending him to family and friends.

A completely substandard experience, from the staff on up. After 2 visits, the laser he was using broke while I was in the chair, even after he pealed back my cornea. Subsequently, he agreed to make up the inconvenience and discomfort in the price. After yet another office visit and a cancelled makeup date (which I took off of work for), he broke his promise and reneged on the new price. Total of 4 visits, 1 day off of work, and nothing to show for it but a flap hanging off my eyeball. Terrible.
