I can’t say enough about Dr Gelman and the staff at the Cooper City office. My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for over a year and had a consultation with Dr Gelman where it was painfully obvious that IVF may be our only option. We were concerned about the price and the odds with IVF but I remember Dr Gelman saying “I can get you pregnant” and that’s EXACTLY what he did. We got pregnant with our first IVF cycle and we couldn’t be happier. Dr Gelman is very thorough and knowledgeable and would take time out to listen to any concern we had during the process which made us feel at ease. The staff is WONDERFUL. Everyone is so nice and remembers details about you so you don’t just feel like a number. I’m an email person and the nurses and coordinators would respond to me within minutes! They are quick and will answer any question you may have or resolve any problem that arises same day even if that means curbsiding Dr Gelman. I’m so lucky to have found this clinic. I can’t say enough good things about it. Highly recommend.

Thank you Doctor Glman!

I went to Dr Gelman because I wanted to get pregnant but i have PCOS. After he turned me upside down and did an insane amount of testing (some of it without my knowledge so I couldnt ask my insurance), all my test results came back normal, i clearly didnt have an infertility issue and he still said i will NEVER get pregnant without IVF and he pushed me to book my appointment to start. I went with my gut and got a second opinion. The second doctor told me everything was fine, i have zero problems and i can definitely get pregnant naturally. Lo and behold, 2 weeks later i got pregnant. So much for needing IVF. He was rude and dismissive to my needs and questions and I could tell he couldnt wait to get me out of his office. His staff is pretty rude as well, especially the checkout people. I wish i had read more reviews about him before i wasted so much time, money and peace of mind on this very unhelpful doctor who needs bedside manners and who is all about the money he can get from you. I didnt want to leave without mentioning, that two of the procedures he did, were covered completely by my insurance, but they wanted to charge me $159 dollars each for "procedure room fees". They want you to sign a form before they do it. DONT sign it. I had my insurance inquire and they dropped this very quickly and never mentioned it again. BTW the procedures are done where you always get your ultrasound, its not like an operating room, which your insurance would still cover. They're shady and unprofessional. If you need someone compassionate to your needs, this is not the place for you.

Thanks dr gelman

Dr Gelman is my hero. Because of him I have a beautiful son and I will be forever grateful. He is smart, caring and extremely knowledgeable. I knew he was the right Dr for us and our IVF treatment the second I walked into his office. From the bottom of my heart thank you Dr.
