I didn't like that all they offered was to shorten my Olna, They didn't talk about harvesting tendons or less invasive procedures. They characterized the procedure they wanted to do as my Only option and didn't empathize that I wanted to resume my life of acrobatics and that that surgery was further limit me.

I consulted with Dr. Gelfand about lymph gland transplant surgery and was happy to have the opportunity to find out first hand if it might work for me at some point in the future.

This visit was fine. I was listened to and all my questions were answered patiently. The visit was to discuss a very serious problem that could have been addressed much earlier - if I had been listened to and had all my questions answered patiently at any appointments previous to this one.

Good service with main issue but doesn't seem to focus on the other less important issue, I feel it was left to just get worse. And when it does there will be focus. But I want preventative care.

Dr. Gelfand immediately responded to my question and his staff called me set an appointment for this last visit so I could get a proper treatment. He also remembered my husband health issues and showed his thoughtfulness. It made me feel comforting.

I think he could have been more details on this surgery that he wants to do on my hand I didn't get to ask him any questions he seemed kind of eager to get out of there I just don't feel he spent enough time with me and explain things more thoroughly to me

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
