Verified Patient Reviews
My visit wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. Everyone was polite, but no one was all that personable or bothered to make conversation with me. I get really nervous at the dentist, so having awkward silence in the room didn't help at all. The exam was quick and easy, but my cleaning was way too fast. That sounds like a weird thing to complain about, but it was over in 5 minutes tops, so I can't imagine it was very thorough - and my teeth look pretty much the same, not whiter like they usually do after a cleaning. It was painful too; the doctor seemed to be rushing and he kept jabbing my gums. I wouldn't recommend him, especially if you have a fear of the dentist like I do.
Everyone was friendly and very helpful. I was seen right at my appointment time. Will definitely return for any further dental work needed. Have already recommended him to my co-workers.
So far so good
Never have to wait. They know me by name when I walk in. All in all, best dentist I have ever been to
Doctor Gelman has a terrific demeanor and gives you an assessment of your dental health in a straightforward and non-judgmental way.
Very kind and was willing to work with me, best dentist Iv ever been to.
Step 1 was the hard part as he said and he seems to be very compassionate towards his patients. Some doctors seem "textbook" Dr Gelman had a plan that worked for me and made me comfortable which will result in a healthy smile.
I was seen very quickly, even with having to fill out new patient forms. Dr Gelman was very professional and answered all of my questions. His accent was slightly difficult to understand, but he repeated things when I asked. No cavities, so no complaints here! I also liked that they text and email you with your next appointment. Very convenient.
I was politely greeted as soon as I walked in the door. The nurse and the doctor were very nice and professional
Great dentist, would recommend.
Excellent dentist. I understand why he has 5 stars!
He was very gentle and answered all questions.
Very good doctor; loved the fact that he really went over and beyond with options. Appreciate that
I had my 1st appointment yesterday with Dr Gelman. An emergency appointment for an extraction it wasn't your routine cleaning etc. Im not one who gets anxious about seeing the dentist like I know many people are, I mean by no means is it a pleasant experience but I don't panic either. Knowing that I will say my overall experience would best be described as .... Let's say I was one that really freaks out about the dentist and everything about it, like valum is prescribed for me to take before the appointment..... The compassion and professionalism not to mention patience from Dr to the front desk employee was off the charts!!! If I had any of those fears they would be completely gone due to the outstanding patient care provided by Dr Gelman and staff!!! ***** 5 stars hands down!
The best dentist I've ever had! Super friendly staff! if your appointment is at 12:30pm, you're seated in the chair by 12:31pm and Dr. Gelman is solving teeth problems by 12:32pm!
This was the most painless dentist visit ive ever had
Amazing and GENTLE. PERFECT!
Great Job. A little rough with the cleaning, but got the job done nonetheless.
It was good because as adentist was able to take his time to explain to me whats is really happening to my teeth after an exam
This office from person who greeted me, to dental hygienist, to the Dentist himself. They were kind, courteous,prompt, attentive, friendly, professional and knowledgeable.I felt assured that my smile would be great at the end and trusted them completely. I will recommend Dr. Gelman and his practice to everyone. One asset i have is when i believe in someone or something. i spread the word and people listen.
Had to wait almost 45 mins before my appointment started. The office is just ok. There are videos being shown of dental procedures that no one wants to see. There should be news or something relaxing on the tv screen. Due to the wait, I don't think I will go back.
He advertises that he is an in net work provider and is not. No personality and not able to explain
Seems not super thorough but was pleasant and prompt enough that I don't know if I need to switch.
My father has a situation which requires consultation with his heart doctor. Dr. Gelman made him feel very comfortable and confident that the work he needs done will be done with the utmost professionalism.
Very high standard service, I was informed what is the current situation of the tooth for which I came in. Then I was informed what procedures will take place and what are the possible and probable outcomes. Luckily, it was just a filling and he offered to try and save the live tooth instead of going for root canal straight away. I am glad I was able to make an informed choice. Highly recommend. I did extensive research for a good dentist and never felt sorry for my choice with this one. I am also glad and thankful that reception desk were able to investigate and trace my insurance plans for me so that I would be able to maximize my benefit. People worked hard to provide me with excellent service and I appreciate that very much.
Dr Gelman was great. The only issue I had was that I waited 40 minutes from my appointment time.
The reason why I had to wait was because for some reason I accidentally cancelled, then reschedule. But if you're on time they help you right away. They were super nice and the Dentist is soo cool. They also accept my insurance where most dentist around my area didn't accept. I recommend this Dentist to any first timers, I had a great experience!
They were kind and curtious very punctual and proffessional.
Very professional, caring and honest doctor. I am glad to be his patient.
Absolutely wonderful!!!!!!! I have had a terrible fear of dentists since I was younger and it kept me from getting the proper care for my teeth. After visiting DR. Gelman today, I regret not finding him sooner! Absolutely pain free and a very comfortable environment. I'm actually looking forward to getting the things that I need done....he is a godsend!!!!!!
Very good dentist I haven't been to the dentist in years and he is very good at working with you and your insurance. He also does not hold no judgement I have seen him 4 times now and every time he has been very helpful.
Really nice Dentist!!
Had to have an emergency root canal and was able to get an appointment right away. Great visit and helped my tooth feel a lot better immediately, had great bedside manner, and was very professional. I have a huge fear of the dentist and he made me feel very comfortable and was very accommodating. He even followed up just to see how my tooth was feeling. Will definitely got back again.
Doctor Gelman is the best Doctor I have ever met! Very knowlegeable and has golden hands! You can trust him 100%! Very friendly and professional team! I would recommend to everybody this office
Dr. Gelman is an Excellent Dentist, Very Nice Person, he always do his best to help his patients with all problems they might have, I really enjoyed the time that I spent visiting the East Allegheny Dental 1 Office.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR NICE WORK!!! With Best Regards, Anzhela Hovhannisyan
Very professional. Full explanation of treatment. Clean office and friendly office stuff. I had no wait, and my problem was fixed at the same visit. What I like about this office, that they will accept your emergency asap, and are willing to solve your problem at its soonest.
The best dentist that I ever visited!

Overall, I liked it. The staff was friendly and the office was very nice. My only complaint, if any, would be the wait time.
Very good service.
