patient

I recently had a hysterectomy by Dr. John Gelinas. I cannot say enough wonderful things about him. He makes you feel comfortable, at ease, excellent bed side manner and spends as much time as needed discussing your options. I had only a few days of minor pain after surgery. He is excellent and I would highly recommend him to any woman.

Uses charm to distract you from his limited knowledge.

This doctor says "I'm scared" a lot when he is taking care of patients. He has a limited comfort zone as far as his medical knowledge. He also is defensive about having a DO instead of an MD. He speaks to women using a condescending tone in his voice.

Wonderful Doctor

I've been a patient of Dr. Gelinas for about 8 years now. I can't say enough about him. He has an excellent bedside manner, he is kind and direct, and he clearly knows his stuff. The staff is always great and the whole experience is made easier in what is otherwise not the most pleasant kind of doctor's visit. A+

Only if you want the best....

Professional. Kind. Very well educated. The Danbury area has no idea how fortunate they are to have such a remarkable physician caring for psychiatric patients and their families. If your family member needs a psychiatrist, go to Dr. Gelinas, if you want the best.
