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

I was impressed by the complete exam by Albert P.A., but I would have appreciated it if Dr Gendleman could have spared more of his time than 5 minutes. My appointment was with Specialist, Dr Gendleman and not his P.A. Iwas 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 andI 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. Igot xrays, diagnosis and a treatment plan within 30min.
