My son had a (non-threatening) long-standing condition that Gelman was very aware of over the years. Recently my wife & I called Gelman 4-5 times to ask him a question on the same condition, now worse. He refused to return our calls; his office insisted we had to come in. Considering Gelman was *well aware* of the issue, and that he had minimized it all this time, the least he could've done is called back to discuss options (OTC medication for example), or order a standard blood test for it (my doctor's done similar for me).

We got another doctor, and now have to wait 7-10 days for the records to be *mailed* (they will not fax them!)

Never had a Primary Physician refuse to call back! And in retrospect, I think he was way too dismissive of the issue. All in all, this was an eye-opening experience in the arrogance of a medical professional.

My son loves Dr. Steve and so do we all. He was recommended to me before I even moved to the Slope. He also wears really goofy ties sometimes which really helps to loosen up the kids.

I selected Dr. Gelman as our doctor when we moved to Park Slope in 2005. I find him to be warm and personable with parents and sweet and silly with kids. He has a great bedside manner and is non-alarmist, which I really appreciate. He is supportive and non-judgmental. Sometimes the office he works in - Park Slope Pediatrics - is a bit chaotic, but it is a busy practice. Their new offices on PPW are very nice.
