Dr. Gellner really took the time to listen to all of my concerns and was able to give me an explanation for all of my concerns. She took the time to explain certain things in greater depth and also in terms that my 7 year old son could understand. It made him feel included in his treatment and that is huge. Sometimes providers can talk at you instead of to you, but Dr. Gellner has very good bedside manner and made me feel at ease with the diagnosis and treatment plan. I'm so happy a co-worker recommend her to us when we were in need of a new pediatrician due to insurance changes.
