My daughter had a stress fracture in her right foot. It was causing her a lot of pain and we were able to get an appointment with Dr. Gelles the next day. She had to drive up from U of I so we were very happy to be seen so soon. Dr. Gelles sent us over to the hospital for some tests and put her in a boot for 6 weeks.

Dr. Gelles diagnosed my foot problem efficiently and really listened to what I had to say. He helped me make a treatment decision based on my lifestyle. I have since sent friends and family to him!

He seems experienced enough in fixing feet but the 40 year old x-ray equipment and the lack of actual radiology technicians is a touch shady. Upon questioning the doctor, I was very rudely blown off. I will not return.
