Dr Gelbard had a very good bed side manner. He explained things very well. He truly cares about his patients and saw me in the hospital several times.He is a great doctor and took excellent care of me. I can't thank him and his people enough for the care I received.

Dr Gelbard stayed to answer all of my questions and did not seem eager to move on to the next patient . He showed concern and is so knowledgeable of my disease. I feel much ease knowing he is available to treat my disease.

I'm sorry there is no survey choice response for excellence. Dr. Gelbard exceeded my expectations in every aspect. He clearly is very thorough knowledgeable and expert In his field. But also humble and kind. He gave me his undivided attention, treated me with compassion and respect, and shared abundant information with me about my condition and treatment options. He was also very skilled in his examination of my throat with no discomfort. I am very happy to have found him and be under his care
