    How was your appointment with Dr. Gelfand?

    Nov 17, 2016
    Dr.Gelfand is the best rheumatologist around, but he's moved to a new office and the people that work there are all new people and I don't think they have a clue about what dr Gelfand is actually treating there. They seem to have no clue about the disease the drs they are working for treat.
