What People Say About Dr. Robert Gelfand, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Reply
A referral from an outside physician due to abnormal tests led me to Dr. Robert Gelfand initially. However Dr. Gelfand’s Creative mind, Comprehensive knowledge, Continuity of care, Confidence, Caring approach & Communication talents are some of the C “toppings” that have kept me “floating” to his office for about a year. Frequent obligatory appointments for chronic conditions are not like an “ice cream parlor” outing but Dr. Gelfand’s "confection" of health services is as "sweet" as it gets.

As a younger patient of Dr. R. Gelfand’s with a chronic condition that requires ongoing monitoring, I value his broad decision-making framework. His innovative approach includes evaluation with consistent patient input and feedback. To practice his unique patient centered technique takes fortitude, strength, time and patience (especially with creative characters). I applaud Dr. Gelfand for inspiring dialogue regarding treatment alternatives which provides higher standards of care on all levels.
