I had a very painful tumor on my finger for over 10 years and no other doctor knew what it was. Dr. Gelberman knew right away exactly what it was and removed it. From the time I first saw him until surgery, it was just over 2 weeks! I had zero pain post-op. His office and the surgical facility are excellent also.

Dr. Gelberman operated both of my hands to fix the trigger fingers. He is an excellent surgeon, extremely knowledgeable and caring physician, who explains the problem and the treatment in very easy to understand terms. I was able to get an urgent pre-op appointment and I felt well taken care of during the operation and in the post-op phase. I would highly recommend doctor Gelberman to my friends and family. Thank you!
