Both of my visits were very positive. Dr Gelia took the time to explain what to expect which made me comfortable and less stressed about the procedure. His staff is very friendly and I did not have to wait in the office long to see him. Virginia Kenmore New York May 8,2019

Dr. Gelia came highly recommended to me after I had severe foot pain for several months. He provided a fast and definitive diagnosis and took his time explaining all options to me. As a healthcare provider myself who is on my feet all day, I would trust no one else with my foot surgery. Extremely experienced, knowledgeable, and professional. He saved me from causing irreversible damage and did a superb job with my surgery. His staff is second to none and truly puts patient care first.

I had a 2 toenails that appeared to look like fungus. I went to another podiatrist who recommended a certain cream that "may work". I wasn't satisfied with his answer. Dr. Geila did not assume that I had fungus. He took a scraping of my nail, sent it to pathology and the final diagnosis was NOT fungus! I had plantar fasciitis on my right foot, he cured it. I had pain on the side of my left foot, he cured it. Recently, I had a bunionectomy (yesterday), so far so good. I'll get back to you....
