Ratings for Dr. Peter S. Gelfand
After the reviewing the ratings and deciding to visit Dr. Gelfand, I was very disappointed. Maybe I caught him during a bad month. I did not find him to be empathetic or having any kind of concern for my distress. He brushed off one of my symptoms and laughed which alarmed me. Now I love to laugh but if I am very concerned about a potential medical problem, I want to be assisted in finding out answers. After two follow up appointments where I felt I wasn't being treated appropriately,I decided he was not the best fit for me. I'm looking at someone to address concerns I have, not brush them off or dismiss them. I was later diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis and am being treated by a great neurologist and internist.
He is a very good Doctor, I travel from the North Shore of Long Island to see him in Long Beach because of the trust I have in him. He is very sympathic to any concerns the patient has and he makes accurate diagnoses every time. His staff and himself are always friendly and always running on time. I have the greatest respect for him.
