He offered a great plan of treatment. I am encouraged that I have a number of options to explore before consideringany sort of surgery.

I was impressed by the complete exam by Albert P.A., but I would have appreciated it if Dr Gendleman could havespared more of his time than 5 minutes. My appointment was with Specialist, Dr Gendleman and not his P.A. I was also given a shot which the Dr did not administer either. Maybe on my follow up visit he will spare a little more of his time for me. But Albert was excellent, and Wendy was very nice too.

I went to see Dr. Gendelman about some pain in my knee. I waited about twenty minutes before he saw me (10 ofthat was filling out forms). He was very knowledgeable, caring and thorough. Dr. Gentleman answered all my questions and I was relieved to hear that surgery wasn't needed. He showed me an exercise to do at home to help get rid of my knee pain and prescribed me an anti-inflammatory. I see him again in six weeks. After seeing four orthopedic doctors in the last twenty years for this knee, Dr. g. Ranks in the top two.

Dr. Gendelman is a nice guy. Knows his work and gave me several options in treatment to choose from even though he recommended one, which I liked. Having the xray center right next door makes this very easy and fast. I got xrays, diagnosis and a treatment plan within 30min.
