I booked a consult with Dr. gelfant quite some time ago and paid the full amount for breast augmentation surgery. After the initial consultation where everyone was really nice (to get me booked) everything changed. I still had a couple more concerns about sizing which were not answered during the initial consult so I booked another.m he was SO rude to me, even sighing and saying I was taking up time! I did not want to go too big so this was really important about the sizing and he just said to trust him that everyone wishes they went bigger anyway. The surgery date was fast approaching and after talking it over I decided to cancel since the "contract" or receipt for my payment said I have 7 days for a full refund, I called to cancel on day 8 in the morning and the receptionist was pissed off. Dr. Gelfant was so arrogant and said I owe him $1,500 in cancellation fees. I said the receipt said 7 days and it was day 8 he said it was a "contract" and he needed the money to cover the anesthesia costs for the booking. I even had a male call in and speak with him nicely about this but he wouldn't budge. I really wish I got a lawyer involved now looking back because I know he's done his to countless others, he's so cheap. A couple years later, I went to another doctor who was fantastic and had the procedure done with perfect results and ALL my fears and questions were answered perfectly the first consult. STAY FAR AWAY FROM DR. GELFANT. He's so full of himself and self promotion even giving me a copy of that ridiculous book he wrote as if no one knew anything about the procedures but him. I wonder how this total sociopath would feel if either of his two daughters were treated as I was by him. I never forgot the horror of dealing with him and the loss of my deposit I could have used which he took from me. I hope this review helps another girl from making the same mistake with him. Thank you and good luck everyone :)

Stay away from this rude, pompous, cold man. All he cares about is your money. He shoots down any concerns you may have and interrupts you along the way. He has the ego of a God with an attitude like how dare you question anything since in his mind his opinion is always perfect. I would never trust anyone to be in his care.

Was nice before my surgery but after surgery his true coloured surfaced. Extremely rude and arrogant! Was literally in my face when i told him I had a tummy tuck performed by another surgeon. Came across very intimidating...please do not go to this surgeon.

when I realized that after cataract surgery I would no longer need glasses, one close look at my eyes told me I had to do something! when my Doctor recommend Dr Gelfant, I didn't hesitate! his decades of experience and reputation was enough for me. he and his staff made me feel very comfortable right a the start. he is gentle, warm and professional. we only discussed eyelid surgery , which is what I wanted done to my very tired eyes! he did not try to push me to do other surgeries. now that it's all done, I am very pleased with the results, my eyes look very natural!

I had breast augmentation, saline under the muscle, Under breast incision 8.5 years ago and I left the clinic to dinner with friends. Barley had any pain. Very happy with result. Very NATURAL looking. I still have scars but they look way better now. I researched a lot back then and think Dr. Gelfant's augmentation could be one of the best in Vancouver BC. Other services I don't know.

I had breast augmentation, saline under the muscle via my arm pits, almost 10 years ago now. I had the surgery on a thursday and was back to work on the monday. I have no scars. They look amazing even after having a baby and breast feeding for a year. I am very happy with my results. I love my breasts!

I had a breast augmentation in Sept 2009 by Dr Gelfant that was completely botched. I was in incredible pain and had severe swelling in one breast the days following and it took a week for him to realize that it was the result of a hematoma, which then needed to be evacuated. So two surgeries in a week. Now they are completely uneven (completely different sizes and at different levels) and the side that had the hematoma now has a part of the implant that is puckered out and looks (and feels!) terrible. It even aches a lot if I'm not constantly wearing a bra to hold the puckered part in. I need to have it fixed but he didn't agree that there was anything wrong and said he was going to charge me nearly $1000 to make the pocket size BIGGER when that side is already way bigger than the other! What was supposed to be a positive experience has turned into a nightmare and I hate my breasts even more now. It's especially frustrating that he won't admit anything is wrong or remedy the problem.

My surgery with Dr. Gelfant (neck, bags under the eyes) was done in the Spring of 2009 at age 74 . It went very well, but I did develop an infection in my neck area. While being treated, he insisted on seeing me almost every day for about 2 weeks. During this time his mother died but he said I was more important. I could not have had a more caring doctor. My outcome was very good. He later operated on my "trigger finger." This year we arrived Christmas day, from Ontario. Just before we came I had fallen , had a scalp laceration which was stapled at our local ER. The staples were to be removed just after boxing day. On a whim, I tried Dr. Gelfant`s office and he was in, doing follow ups to post op patients. His receptionist checked, and he said to come right over, he would love to see me (after 4 years). He removed the staples, no charge and saved me many hours waiting in a local hospital ER. I have nothing but praise for this kind compassionate doctor.
