Ratings for Dr. Benjamin Gelfant
He used two different surgeons without my consent to do my breast lift and reduction. When I would raise any concerns during follow-ups, he told me to not worry about it and not be so detail-oriented. I was an absolute idiot for trusting him, and I advise everyone to stay far away from him!!!!!
I had lip augmentation and forehead lift in 2009. The forehead completely dropped. And today looks a mess. The lip augmentation was completely botched, after I complained I was in pain all the time, he refused to listen. First time around he put way too much fat and I looked like a clown. After pleading to have it removed he finally agreed but was arrogant as usual. I ended up looking like clown the second time around with one side much higher than the other also having nerve damage. He wouldn't do anything about it except to say he wouldn't be doing anymore lip augmentations. Ever since, my life has been a nightmare with people laughing at how bad it looks. Physicians, Specialists and any other medical staff including lab staff abuse me. I have developed breast cancer and no one will treat or do surgery because of this disgusting mess Gelfant has left me with. I saw a Dr in the States and his comment was, I do not support the person that did this to you. The fact that this untreated breast cancer will kill me makes Dr Ben Gelfant very guilty of causing an unnecessary death. He refused to refund my money and I cannot afford to go to another country for private surgery to save my life. How would anyone who reads this feel as I sit typing this I'm in dreadful pain from the cancer. Thank you Dr Gelfant for shortening my life. Who ever is thinking of going to this man, should think again. Thank for reading this. Valerie
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.
Pretty uncaring Dr and exceptionally rude office staff
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.
