I had to drive to Gresham 4 this visit as the doc in Portland had no openings for over a month. So it's not that I wouldn't recommend the doc, but I don't what to drive to Gresham every time.

After driving out to my appointment, it had to be rescheduled. Receptionist & Mr Gelfand were very apologetic, even though it was beyond all of our control.

Everyone very efficient and pleasant. I'm aware the Physicians schedules are regulated by the industry, and insurance companies via surveys. Felt Dr. may have been in a hurry.

Dr. Gelfand is extremely knowledgeable and clear about my course of treatment, possible outcomes, concerns, and other treatment options I may have. Dr. Gelfand always seems to have a well thought out plan for my treatment. I do not feel rushed and I feel that he takes the time to make sure I understand all topics discussed.

When I originally called for an appointment, the 1st available was 2 mos. out. The efficient receptionist put me on a wait list; I got in to see the dr. 2 wks. later. It is difficult to access everything from one visit.

Dr. Gelfand & his 'crew' are of the highest caliber. Dr. Gelfand is VERY thorough, efficient, kind, accurate, and obviously exceedingly knowledgeable. I know absolutely, that with Dr. Gelfand, I am getting the best advise, and best treatment options available. I can't speak highly enough of his professionalism and astuteness. A very quick & accurate thinker. He would make an excellent aircraft pilot, if he isn't already!

I was hoping to be seen much sooner than 5 weeks after my injury. Although, Dr. Gelfand was nice and attentive, he was very hard to understand with his accent.

All were very helpful. Excellent care. I've had very painful hand surgery from another dr. years ago. Dr. Gelfand gave me Cortisone shots that helped very much & know he is a specialist that can maybe help me.

The visit went well, everyone was so nice and efficient. My only complaint is systemic - the wait for an appointment while living with temporary measure from urgent care did have a dramatic negative effect. This had nothing to do with the fine people, they called me quickly and set an appointment right away, it just took a week for them to get me in.
