Avoid at all costs!!! Terrible doctor who imposes conservative beliefs on patients!..., May 21, 2013
I had slim pickings with my new HMO so I chose Dr. Galiano because he was downtown near my office. I was always in/out in 30 minutes which was great BUT he would always make snide comments to me. He asked "Why would you need a blood test for STDs? Are you promiscuous?" All I wanted was to get a checkup and figured I could test for STDs since they were already taking my blood. I didn't need a judgement. Recently I went in to get a blood test to see if I was pregnant. This was an unplanned pregnancy so it was really scary. He proceeded to lecture me by saying "The body is made for reproducing and you should not be having sex if you do not want to reproduce." I have never been more offended in my life! He also refused a blood test because he said it would be a waste of money and I needed to wait longer than 2.5 weeks. 2.5 weeks or not I was scared and needed medical guidance in which I received judgement and lectures. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!
Why, tuvi, why. Why did you leave me to have so much pain!..., Apr 12, 2013
Why Tuvi, Why? Why did you not make a correct diagnosis? You could plainly see what was going on. If you had, SO much pain, so many problems, issues, etc could have been avoided. Why didn't you listen to me, when I pleaded with you? Why Tuvi, why? I wasn't in pain before, now I suffer constantly and have to endure endless pain. Why Tuvi, WHY?
AMAZING, considerate, compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, 10 out of 10!!..., Mar 22, 2013
I went to Dr. F for my 2nd baby. He was so caring and considerate. He did not make me feel bad asking questions and did not act like he expected me to know everything. He helped me get out of a bad situation to focus on my growing baby. Dr. Fellenbaum noticed that my son was getting big by ultrasound and started monitoring me more closely. I started dilating early, but never went in to labor on my own as I did with my first. When I was dilated to 4 for a week we opted to induce. The hospital was understaffed when I arrived for my induction, and he made sure that the hospital knew it was unacceptable to leave his patients laboring while unsupervised. He did a great job on my son's circumcision and got us home as soon as possible (26 hours after delivery to be exact!), which I was very thankful for! He is a wonderful and extremely knowledgeable 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.
