A doctor/friend in my community recommended Dr. Gelb. His wife had a knee replacement and he felt Dr Gelb was the best surgeon. I am new to Florida so I relied on his opinion. I was very happy with Dr. Gelb and will continue recommending him. He cares about his patients and gives you possible alternatives to try before doing surgery. I was bone on bone and needed a replacement. We hoped it would be a partial but he also had a total ready to go in case my knee looked worse once he got inside. Dr. Gelb is a very skilled and talented surgeon. My surgery went well. I am 15 weeks post surgery. I am coming along and can do just about anything I could do before but without pain. I have my active life back. I can't say enough good things about the doctor. His office staff was wonderful. Always pleasant and helpful. Heather who does the hospital scheduling went out of her way to get me in sooner rather than later due to my severe pain. I did my physical therapy at the office. I really have to credit them for getting me up and walking. Jay is excellent. I worked mostly with Billy who did what it takes even when I screamed and cried. He stuck with me and pushed me when I needed it. He was attentive and there was always someone watching to make sure the exercise were done correctly. I never felt rushed during my sessions. They made sure I did what was necessary and most of the sessions were closer to 2 hours than 1. Great group of people. All are compassionate. The whole practice is well run. I am so grateful to all of them.

His physical therapy department is dirty. They tried to put towels on me that I had seen was just removed from the previous patient. The therapist was more interested in flirting with a female employee than helping me. There was no supervision whatsoever and I went to another facility for my physical therapy. Dr. Gelb himself put screws in my shoulder. On a post operative visit I told what had happened in his physical therapy facility. He was very receptive and thanked me. Then I receive a letter from his office manager dismissing me from the practice. Now it is 2 years later and my same shoulder is hurting. They made me an appointment, and when I arrived said they will not treat me. Sounds kind of funny. Now I am not so sure the Dr. is as good as I thought he was.
