What do patients have to say about you?

"Dr. Gelfand is a smart and caring cardiologist. He treats his patients with dignity and respect. I'm fortunate to be one of his patients. His clinical judgement and expertise helped to save my life."

"My family is lucky to have Dr. Gelfand as our cardiologist. He saved life of my husband, who had a "widow maker" heart vessel problem. He is also prolonging the life of my father, who would not survive last 4 years if it was not for Dr. Gelfand. He is able to figure out a problem and offer the best possible solution promptly."
