    How was your appointment with Dr. Gelfand?

    Apr 09, 2021
    I wish all doctors were like Dr. Gelfand. Not only is he very knowledgeable but he is so caring. Even though he has several nurses to take blood, do infusions, etc, he still checks every patient himself on every visit. My mom was so fortunate to have him as her doctor.
