Editorial review from Citysearch 7/8/2014

Dr. Sandy is my go-to primary care physician. She's smart and extremely well connected to the medical community -- she knows everyone and has a keen diagnostic eye to match up your needs with the right specialist if required. When a consult is called for, she's got that other doctor's cell number in her phone and gets them up on the line right then and there. Cuts through a lot of red tape. She's a find in today's world of institutionalized, insurance driven medicine.\r \r And a great front desk headed by Lyndsey. more

Editorial review from Citysearch 2/15/2013

Amazing Doctor, Confident and funny, Old Soul. Dr Gelbard takes care of my children, my parents and my siblings. We all love her and consider her part of our family. She has been with us for so many ups and downs. It is so hard to find someone cares the way she does. Whenever we have an important medical decision she has been pivotal in getting the right people on the phone, communicating with specialists, and ultimately getting us to the right decision. She was meant to be a doctor and it is so very clear she loves what she does. more

Best Doctor, Very Thorough and Caring 3/10/2012

I waited more than two years to go to an internist. I work in the fashion industry and began asking all of my colleagues who they recommended. After hearing about Dr Gelbard from three different ppl, I decided to give her a shot. I hate going to doctors so this experience was a big surprise. I found Dr Gelbard to be so smart and caring. She asked the right questions and uncovered things I had no idea were going on. This was great, but what really struck me was how she helped me with the care of a loved one a year later. This was someone she never met but when I was in a bind, she was the first person I thought to call. Through her extensive network of stellar contacts, she found us the right medical specialists. She is a real find. more

Amazing, Kind and Real 12/4/2011

I initially went to Dr Gelbard after reading the book Mrs Astor Regrets and hearing how much she did for New York City's Beloved Brooke Astor. I had just gone through menopause and was feeling exhausted and depressed. She gave me a complete physical, went through all the notes of my prior physicians (even called some of them while I was in the room with her), and then listened with extreme focus as I explained my symptoms. I had a few friends who had been to Dr Gelbard and gave her rave reviews, but I honestly did not expect her to be this great. She got to the root of my issues and I have never felt better. It turned out I had a few things that were off balance and we have now corrected them all. I feel as though I have a new lease on life. Best of all, I can always check in with her and feel as though I am going to see my friend, not just my doctor. She is an inspiration to all women. She is completely accessible and always makes you feel heard. It is very apparent that she truly loves what she does! more

A True Find! Like Having a Doctor in the Family! 4/20/2011

I have been a patient of Dr Gelbards for almost 5 years now and had no idea about all her amazing online reviews. After reading them i decided to add to the mix. more

Best doctor 5/23/2010

I met Dr Gelbard after reading her reviews on this web site. I have to say that I have never felt compelled to write a review for any doctor till I met her. I want to thank her because she saved my life. I have not been feeling well for quite sometime now. Based on the reviews I got a sense that she would listen to me. I am happy to say she did. She took over 40 minutes and listened to all my concerns. Ironically at my follow up appt she went over my lab results and she did not find anything unusual. However I expressed to her that I still felt something was wrong with me. I was afraid she would send me away but she didn't. She sent me for further testing and to my surprise it was discovered that I have Cancer. Now this was not the news that I wanted to hear. What I find impressive and forever will be grateful was how she helped me during this time. Even before she gave me the news she already had called and made arrangements for me to meet with my surgeon. Of course when she told me the bad news I was shaking and crying but she told me that this Cancer has a good prognosis and she reassured me that I would be ok. She helped me to find the other doctors that I will need. I will have surgery soon and pray that everything will be o.k. I want to thank her with all my heart because she listened to me. I know she was God sent. Pros: She Cares more

Great Internist, Best in New York 4/17/2010

i had been to multiple ""specialists"" in nyc but it wasn't until I went to Dr Gelbard that I was offered a comprehensive understanding of what my medical issues were. She listened with all the patience in the world, asked me a bunch of questions, went through all my old lab and test results. She then even got on the phone, while I was sitting in her office and spoke with some of the doctors who had previously taken care of me. I had never had any doctor do this. My symptoms had been going on for three years and she got right to the cause of them. She has a great team of people she works with and they all update her regularly so I dont have to be an interpreter. After 4 months I was symptom free and owe it all to her. It is very apparent that this doctor truly enjoys her work. She was recommended to me by a bunch of people in my apt building, who swear by her. I will never go anywhere else. Pros: Smart, Spends aot of time, Runs on Time more

Best Internist in NYC 9/1/2009

I agree with the great reviews of Dr. Sandra Gelbard, she is amazing. Two friends referred me to her (they have been patients for years) and I had such a positive experience I have sent two co-workers who are also now big fans. It's obvious that she cares about her patients. During my physical I just went on and on about the smallest worries and she listened and responded thoughtfully to everything! She didnt make me feel rushed at all. I had been looking for an internist since moving back to NYC 4 years ago and have never come close to finding someone like Dr. Gelbard. Also, when you have an urgent issue she is completely accessible. The office is beautiful, clean and in a very convenient location. Best of all, her practice prides themselves on a very short wait time. They schedule on patient an hour, which is unheard of in this city. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes for my appointment! Pros: Superb Doctor- caring, great listener, very accessible Cons: Office on 10th floor, not ground more

Thorough, Knowledgeable, Compassionate 2/23/2009

I came to see Dr Gelbrad after being sticken by an unusual condition- and had no idea what it was. I had otherwise been completely healthy, so I had very little need to see a doctor and just went to HMO's for a yearly exam. Dr Gelbard was terrific, spending over an hour with me on each visit, drilling down and doing tests to determine what was wrong, sending me to other specialists she knew when warrented. She kept on top of my situation, and was determined to solve this and make me feel better. Over several months of this kind of attention, my condition improved and I am now enjoying my healthy lifestyle again! Dr Gelbard makes herself available to her patients, so you do not have to wait weeks to get in, or long hours when you get there. She will make good recommendations on how to improve your lifestyle to maintain optimal health, and has a terrific bedside manner. Importantly, Dr Gelbard will also coordinate care with other specialists, and in my view she is the consumate professional, someone who I completely trust with my most impotant asset- my health! Pros: fabulous doctor, no waiting time, great staff more

Impeccable Service, Very Professional and Thorough 2/14/2009

I heard about Dr Gelbard from the new book, ""Mrs Astor Regrets"", where it tells of how she really helped her in her last years. I had needed to switch a younger, more up to date doctor, so I thought I would give her a try. She was so thorough and easy to talk to. Things that had previously been brushed off by my other doctors, were really paid attention to by Dr Gelbard. I have never had a doctor who was so thorough and always available for my calls. Her vitamins are amazing and they really have helped my hair and nails. Pros: Minimal Wait, Very Thorough more

Finally - a doctor who gets it!! Would never go anywhere else 7/15/2008

Dr Gelbard is truly one in a million. All you have to do is go for one visit and you realize how different the experience is. She actually spends an hour or more with you. It is all one on one. There are no physician assistants or nurse practitioners. When you make an appointment with the doctor - you actually spend the entire visit with the doctor! Pros: Ecellent Doctor, Spends Ample amount of Time, No Waiting more

Superb Doctor in NYC 6/7/2008

I went to see Dr Gelbard upon the urging of my family. My parents, aunt, uncle and cousin are all patients of hers. I dont particularly like going to doctors and hadnt been in over 3 years. I am 26 years old, an avid runner, and overall in great health. I went to appease my mother, who really wanted me to do Dr Gelbards Annual Executive Health physical, which checks for every ailment under the sun. Pros: Loves what she does, Spends Lots of time, Great Prevention program Cons: Examination Room a bit too Cold more

Very Knowledgable and Comforting 1/30/2008

The office is beautiful and the staff was great. This was very important to me because I previously had a doctor, who I liked, but hated the staff. In addition, there was always a minimum of an hour long wait. I went to Dr Gelbard after seeing her on television speak about her vitamin line and her plan for disease prevention. She came across as personable, friendly and seemed extremely knowledgable. When I met her, I was not disappointed. She sat with me for over a half hour before even bringing me in for my exam!!! I had never had a physician spend so much time with me. I had written down 12 questions beforehand and she listened to each one carefully. She doesnt take my insurance, but they submitted it for me and I got back 80%. Either way, I really would not have cared. You get what you pay for, and having someone go over all my health concerns in a relaxed, unrushed environment, is worth every penny. Pros: Spends Ample time, Super Competent, Explains Things VERY well, On time more

Super Competent Physician, Easy to Talk to 12/13/2007

I went to see Dr Sandra Gelbard for the first time about 6 mos ago. I was referred to her by another physician. I had been to multiple doctors, but no one could figure out what was going on. Dr Gelbard spent a full hour with me my first visit. For the first time, I felt really heard. She sat and talked to me for about a half hour before we even went into the examing room. She is very easy to talk to and you feel as though she really cares. She diagnosed me with an unusual thyroid problem and now I am on medication and completely back to normal. Pros: Super Competent, Caring, Easy to Talk to, Beautiful Office Cons: Office on 10th floor, not on ground level more

Snotty & Superior 10/10/2007

I couldn't disagree more with the above reviews. The treatment itself was decent, but I felt an air of superiority and snottiness. Quite honestly I can't even put my finger on what it was, but I felt like this woman thought she was too good for people. I want a doctor who treats me as an equal human being. My 2 cents. more

Compassionate, knowledgeable and savvy physician 9/3/2007

Dr. Gelbard is extremely competent, intelligent and compassionate, and is up to date on all the latest research in medicine. I've been to see her for both check ups and when I've been ill, and both times she is very thorough and really takes the time to talk about your overall health, whereas many other doctors just usher you in and out as quickly as possible. She has a genuine human touch and extremely kind bedside manner, both of which are not qualities I have found in many doctors here in NYC. She also has a fantastic line of vitamins I have been taking -- and I feel great. I feel extremely confident and comfortable entrusting Dr. Gelbard with my overall health. Pros: Kind, intelligent and well informed medical care, excellent vitamin line Cons: Very air conditioned waiting room and offices in the whole building... bring a sweater in warm months! more

review of Sandra Gelbard MD 8/30/2007

I saw Dr Gelbard for the first time in March and was very pleased with the entire experience. She has a calm bedside manner & seemed extremely knowledgable. What I specifically liked was that after my physical exam she took the time to sit with me in her private office and answer any questions I had. I felt like she cared about me, unlike MDs I had seen in the past, I did not feel rushed at all. I would highly recommed her & will definitely return. more

Very friendly, easy to talk to 8/30/2007

Dr Gelbard was referred to me by a family friend, who is a top doctor at NYU - where Dr Gelbard trained. I have a long family history of cholesterol issues, which Dr. Gelbard specializes in. I was especially impressed by the amount of time she took listening to the details of my medical history. I have never written a review for anyone, but I was really struck by how much she seemed to really care. Pros: Easy to talk to, really cares more

Good Dr. in midtown 4/3/2007

I was looking for a new Dr. in midtown in close proximity to my office on 57th Street. I came across Dr. Gelbard and found her 59th street location convenient. I was very impressed with the Dr. and the office set up. Very caring and professional, Dr. Gelbard took time to review my medical history and answer all of my questions. I was also pleased with the no rush environment as the Dr. spent ample time with me and I did not feel rushed. This is a rarity today. The office staff was also pleasant and efficient. more
