Good surgeon but his office hours are horrible!! His has clinic hours only for part of one day a week. The lobby is always full. You always have to wait at least an hour to be seen and he doesn't spend hardly any time with you at all.

Was 26 with a horrific ankle injury leaving me with 10 screws. I trust gellman and his medical advise. Very kind and humbling at what he does. Lucky to have had him too do my surgery. Straight forward and honest no sugar coating with him. I still have him for follow up care and he'll be my choice...more

I felt very blessed to have this great orthopedic surgeon take care of my left femoral neck fracture. I was reassured by his superb team that my bone density and quality is good, right away there was no further pain and I was up and rehabilitating right away and out of the hospital in short order....more
