Seen him after a car accident and he said I was fine, gave me a a brochure on quitting smoking told me I was over weight and sent me on my way. I said I don’t need to come back and he said no! Terrible bedside manner . I went to another orthopedic doctor who sent me for an MRI and I had surgery. Then my husband was referred to him and I tried to warn him about my experience with this man and he didn’t listen needless to say he told my husband he was fine no tears. I was with him and heard the whole conversation. Went to get the results and he does have a tear and so happy to hear that my husband will be seen by my orthopedic surgeon. People get a second opinion and go to a doctor that specializes in certain areas of the body and not the body as a whole.
Dr. Gelvin in did my rotator cuff surgery which turned into a little more than expected but everything went great. He explained everything to my husband and I before and at my office visit. Extremely knowledgeable and patient
The staff was wonderful. Dr.Andrew Gelven answered all my questions and was willing to explain my options. Even during and after surgery he came and talked to my wife. Pain after has been minimal. Thank you
I hurt my shoulder in a fall. I waited for awhile thinking it would get better but when it didn't I had a MRI done. That test showed a couple of small tears and bursitis along with a little arthritis. When I went to him for treatment I was in room for over 30 minutes waiting. When finally came in he sat down and looked at test for a matter of seconds. He then told me I had one very minimal tear, very minimal arthritis, and bursitis. Noticed my range of motion was bad and then just said getting a cortisone shot. That shot did not help me! That was several months ago and still hurting like crazy! I did complain to his nurse about my pain. I never want to go back to him again! Just like it was mentioned on here, he acts like a tear is no big deal and everything good. I bet if he had my pain he would be all over getting help to stop it.
He operated on my father, and left. Never came out to talk to the family at all. The surgery took longer than we were told and we never heard a word from the Dr. When the nurse called the Dr. he didn't answer. She left a message that the family was still waiting to hear from him. An hour later... still nothing. About 3 months later had a follow up, still never saw the Dr. The actual surgeon never even saw him at the follow up.
