Mislead about insurance co-pay and had to pay $350..., Apr 5, 2013
Went in for a mole consultation and got what I thought was included in my $40 co-pay (3 mole tests). 4 of their staff (including Dr. Fichtel) told me that the mole tests were "covered by insurance". Ended up getting a $350 bill for the testing. The situation went downhill from there...
Helpful, Caring, Compassionate, Understanding, Factual, 10 out of 10!!!..., Mar 22, 2013
I went to Dr. Fellenbaum after being referred to him by my previous GYN. I was having painful intercourse for 6+ months and it was causing my marrage to fall apart. I had been to 3 gyns before I saw Dr. Fellenbaum and was beginning to feel there was no hope. After 3-4 visits with Dr. Fellenbaum he was able to pinpoint what was causing the pain. We changed some medications and I was able to reconnect with my husband! Dr. Fellenbaum is very knowledgeable, but if I ever had a question that he did not have an answer to, he would reach out to his many contact across the US and have an answer for me by my next visit. He is simply a marriage saver and I can not thank him enough!!!
Dr Shimkus is a gem, a highly recommended oncologist..., Mar 17, 2013
Dr Shimkus treated my wife's glioblastoma, working with doctors at MD Anderson. He is the most accessible and compassionate doctor I have ever had the experience of knowing. For instance, he has his cell number on his business card and responds to calls or text messages on weekends and evenings!
Downhill fast since changes to office and move ..., Mar 7, 2013
Something has happened since he joined NYU. No one answers the phones, have to call for weeks just to get a response, long wait with doc spending no time with you. This is not the level of care or service people expect from a doctor.
ALWAYS IN PAIN. ALWAYS IN PAIN. ALWAYS IN PAIN. ALWAYS!..., Dec 21, 2012
tuvi mendel NEVER diagnosed a painful, debilitating post op staph infection. Leaving me with considerable damage and ongoing pain.
I pleaded with him that it had to be infected. He insisted repeatedly it was not.............It WAS.
Why tuvi, why!!!!
The symptoms were SO obvious.
