We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

This provider is a specialist for me. I would recommend to friends/family if they had this particular need. Receptionist ignored me for approximately 2 - 3 minutes while she continued typing; I felt this was quite unprofessional. Doctor saw me before my appointed appointment time; I was impressed.

the Receptionist Staff were AMAZING!!I'm a mother of two children (my son is Autistic),who HAD to bring them with me one that day, and they were So SWEET!! they played along with my son & his "money" thing. lol ;))They gave my son & daughter, paper & Crayons, and allowed them space on the floor to draw while DR. was with me. VERY HELPFUL and tuned in to what me & my children needed

This doctor was the plastic surgeon that treated me for an emergency room visit to Mt. Hood ER after a cat attacked my face. I then went to him for a follow up. Considering how badly injured my face and neck were clawed it has been healing better than I had expected.

My own failure to remember to provide additional information which may have not been in my record left me frustrated. Not fault of provider. Left me with remaining question. I will likely call or discuss with PCP

This visit was for a broken finger. The doctor decided to wait and see if it heals itself.

Dr. Gelfand answered/addressed all of my questions/concerns appropriately. In the beginning of the appointment, he asked me my age (age deleted). Then later, when I described the types of activities that cause pain/discomfort he stated, "We are no longer a young athlete." This comment is not something people want to hear when they are trying to stay physically active.

the doctor came in and did not close the door behind him, which made me very uncomfortable and set the tone for the appointment being just a quick stop in his day. the entire appointment lasted less than ten mins

I very much appreciate the fact that Dr. Gelfand was willing to perform surgery the same day on which I sought his help/opinion apart from the _____.

I got the impression Dr. Gelfand was an knowledgeable physician but I was forced to get information from him regarding my injury. He didn't volunteer much information.

the doctor and office staff was excellent. the one problem was that someone waiting in the waiting room was watching a movie on a tablet and the sound was blaring. I could not understand why no one on the office staff asked that person to turn it down. maybe they couldn't hear it but I don't see how that's possible.

Dr. Gelfand is my hand specialist. He answered all of my questions regarding pain in my hands and best treatment for the pain. He made recommendations to relieve the pain and left the decision to me as to what I wanted to do.
