Danielle Aylmer I have been seeing Dr. Gelfond for 5 years now, I was referred to her after having visions issues, she accuaretly diagnosed me and placed me in vision therapy which did wonders for my eyes. Dr. Gelfond is a compassionate doctor who hears all of my concerns, she knows how particular I am with my vision and she takes the time to make sure I am happy. Any issues I had she always found a way to squeeze me into her schedule. I trust no one else with my eyes, She goes above & beyond for her patients

She has been my family eye doctor for the past decade. Dr Gelfond-Polnariev is amazing-- caring, competent, & thorough. She's opening a new location on the South Shore -- by Richmond Av & Hylan in the summer. Can't wait to take my kids to her new place.

Excellent!!! Was referred to her because of potential vision therapy needs of my son. She gave a comprehensive exam and has been following him since. Would not go anywhere else.
