My husband and I were taken back to exam room very soon after our arrival. The person who took my blood pressure and pulse said Dr, Geller was ahead and keeping up with his patients and it would be shortly that he and nurse would be in. We waited almost 40 minutes before nurse came in. Dr Geller came in with another gentlemen and shook our hands and said everything was good from my MRI.
No sense of urgency for a very serious health issue. Test taking way to long to schedule.

Very good visit in and out fast and CT scan went very well and everybody was nice and very help full be back in three months.
I was surprised by the quickness of the visit. I came to see Dr Geller through Dr Wallace, my regular gastro; Dr Wallace felt Dr Geller was the best possible match for my condition. In all honesty I felt rather overwhelmed by the rapid fire talking during my exam,a bit stressed out by the speed involved! Ten minutes from blood pressure check to being scheduled for surgery! Extremley efficiant but rather intimidating! I still am not completly clear on how the surgeey will go or even if I am having outpatient or staying a few days?
Took time to explain everything. this was a follow up to a surgery.
Both Dr. Geller and the nurse William made me feel at ease and comfortable with getting such scary news. I especially appreciated nurse William sitting down with us at the end of the visit and reviewing what was going to take place in the future.
I am very pleased to have Dr. Geller for my specialist.
