Excellent bedside manner. Sat next to me and chatted about running and weight loss for a few minutes. Very calmly reassured me regarding my procedure and diagnosis. Very confident and reassuring.
Dr. Gelpi listened, and explained everything very thoroughly. Did not feel rushed at all. Very professional and also friendly!
Very thorough and understanding of what guys are apprehensive about when seeing a urologist. I wasnt rushed and he took time to explain all my issues in everyday language I could understand. Perfect annual Dr for older guys....
Worst Doctor. Please dont waste your money. Go somewhere else.
Great doctor. Very professional and easy to talk to.
Doctor was excellent!!! On the other hand answering service is horrible. This young lady hung me up several times and one time never came back to the phone. They are just flat out rude... Only other problem, my prescriptions weren’t sent to my pharmacy so I was in pain the entire night and next day.
Dr. Gelpi is easily one of the best doctors that I have ever been to. He takes his time to listen and understand your concerns, then recommends the best course of action. He makes going to the urologist an easy and non-stressful endeavor. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Gelpi!
Great and very personable doctor. Highly recommended!
Dr. Gelpi was extremely courteous and relatable. He was able to turn an awkward subject into a casual conversation. He was extremely knowledgeable on the material and it was evident in his attitude that he cares tremendously for his practice and his patients. I would highly recommend him!

By far the best doctor I have seen in Houston! He knows his specialty forwards and backwards and listens.

Very thorough and really was concerned.... very happy with my visit and to know I am in good hands.
I felt like he was trying to find out what was wrong with me. He is just not in it for the money.
Dr. Gelpi (Heppi) Had great bedside manner, He took his time and asked a ton of questions to try and figure out what was the cause of the issue. The staff is also great! I will be a repeat patient. (The only down side is the Wait time is ridiculous. If they get that figured out it would be great. If not I will start looking else where.
