Patient Testimonials

I have had 2 surgeries from Dr. Gellman for two separate issues and I have never been more appreciative and had more respect for a mans professional expertise than I have for Dr. Gellman. When you go to Dr. Gellmans office, you will be surprised to see his waiting room full and the reason is because he is THE BEST. Just like going to a restaurant where there are no people or a lot. Ask yourself why and I think you will understand. The wait is worth your while and your health. Also, Dr.Gellmans staff is top notch. They are courteous and professional. Words can't accurately express my gratitude to Dr. Gellman. Both my wrist and elbow are perfect and I have had ZERO issues with either. Thank You Dr. Gellman

Paul Speziale – Jul 27, 2019 - from Healthgrades review

I am very late I writing this review but I can report that the surgery performed by Dr. Gellman corrected my problem! I had "avocado hand", I sliced open my hand and cut a nerve in my left index finger while trying to open an feeling in it after the incident. Dr Gellman and his staff did a great job diagnosing my issue, Dr Gellman fixed the nerve and one year later (actually sooner, maybe 6 months) I have complete feeling back, wouldn't even know I had surgery except for a small bump in the palm of my hand but that isn't an issue. Yes the wait can be long, I advise that you bring something to occupy yourself, it can be frustrating but I would rather suffer that than not have feeling back in my finger! Thanks to all in the office and Dr Gellman, I appreciate everything you all did for me!

Great Surgeon! Removed a mass on my arm that was interfering with my nerves. Dr Gellman took the time to fully diagnose and explained the procedure that I could understand. Done as an outpatient, painless and no complications. Trust Dr. Harris Gellman.

My hand closed due to a spinal cord injury, Drs I went to said they couldn't help! Then I met Dr Gellman. Starting from the minute you walk in the door and are greeted by the friendly staff my expierences have always been positive. Dr Gellman explained and "educated" me on what options I have, After several surgeries I now have a functioning hand that has greatly increased my quality of life. Couldnt be more thankful!
