Kintsugi is the traditional Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. This technique highlights the cracks and repairs rather than hiding them, turning the broken piece into a beautiful and unique work of art. Kintsugi is also a beautiful metaphor for embracing imperfections and turning them into sources of strength and beauty.

In my daily practice, I embody this philosophy. Collaborating with my patients, I strive to heal their areas of concern. Together, we embark on a journey of empowerment, where they learn about their health and their bodies. With each interaction, I grow more knowledgeable, enabling me to better serve and support my patients here at AIC.

What our clients have to say.

"Dr. Gelfand and his staff are professional and supportive. I have always had a good experience, and I go on a quarterly basis for iron infusions. It is always easy to make appointments and I love the new midtown location - spacious and easier to get to. Dr. Gelfand has always been available to talk about any concerns and answer my questions."

"Dr. Gelfand and his staff are outstanding/A+++. I’ve been a patient for almost seven years, and my experience has always been positive, pleasant and reassuring. AIC provides exceptional treatment, advice, and personal, compassionate care. Highly recommend."

B. C.

"I started going to AIC this year and I can’t believe how much better my experience is as a result. AIC’s facility is modern with comfortable seating and nice decor. The chairs are padded leather with controls and so comfortable you could fall asleep in them. (I used to sit in a hard chair for three hours.) The staff and nurses are incredibly attentive and nice, always offering me blankets and other items. There is free tea, coffee, cocoa, magazines and other items to make you as comfortable as possible. And there is room for my husband or another family member to accompany me. Overall, this is as good an experience as you can possibly have under the circumstances and I’m very glad I switched!"

Sylvia L.

"Aside from being a brilliant Doctor, Dr Gelfand is the most caring, compassionate Doctor I have ever known."
