Since completing his pediatric training, Dr. Geltman has worked with immigrant and refugee communities in a number of capacities while practicing primary care pediatrics. In addition, he has been involved with public health and academics throughout his career. His research interests have generally centered around topics relevant to refugee health as well as general pediatrics, and have included oral health, iron deficiency prevention, and lead poisoning.

Dr. Geltman is married (over 25 years!) and has three young adult children. The newest members of his family, though, are his two dogs, Wallace and Darwin, who are both a pointer breed called Vizslas. They require a lot of exercise, so Dr. Geltman and his wife enjoy taking them for off-leash runs. He also enjoys music, and was a very accomplished trumpet player when younger. More recently, he has tried to learn to play guitar… but with mixed results!
