Review of Dr. Kirschenbaum


Not sure about these bad reviews but I know they are incorrect and I am sure there are more patients that would agree. I have been with Dr Kirshenbaum and his team for 15 years and would never go elsewhere. You have to trust his process. I have had multiple surgeries/procedures under his care and they were all spot in.

Review of Dr. Malin

- in CT |

In TODAY'S CONFUSING MEDICAL SYSTEMS! Dr. Malin did what Nobody else would do! After 19 yrs! A FIGHTING CHANCE TO SAVE MY OWN LIFE! Surgeons are not A normal medical Demographic! They are ROCK STARS! Not Cheerleaders! or Conversationalists!,Not to say that there are not Crossovers! There Are. My goal was to try to Get My Freedom back! and Dr. Malin gave me that!!! - everything Else is irrelevant!

Review of Dr. Ahmad

- in Shelton, CT |

I've seen Dr. Ahamd several times, at OrthoFast (OSG walk~in ortho facility.) Dr. Ahmad is kind, caring and knows what he's doing. He listens, without interrupting and offers solutions with complete explanations. It's extremely difficult to get a regular app't at OSG so when I have needed immediate help, I go to one of the 5 OrthoFast facilities. BUT 1ST, I CALL & FIND OUT WHICH FACILITY DR. AHMAD IS ON DUTY!

Review of Dr. Fitzgibbons


I went in to OSG after a week of banging my knee. Besides no bed manner, i felt that Dr Fitzgibbons dragged me into unnecessary treatments like an X-ray and brace when he knew all along i tore my meniscus. I lost a month in delays. my last meeting with him about surgery he was very "vague" like we will get in and clean up and remove etc. When i asked questions about recovery it was very vague and nothing definitive. I went to HSS, very professional, informative and most of all Compassion!

Review of Dr. Vasquez

- in Westport, CT |

I took my 9-year old daughter to Orthofast after she fell off the bicycle injuring her hand. The receptionist, Tiffany, was very nice and brought an ice pack to put on my daughter’s hand while we waited to be seen. Dr. Vasquez saw her and ordered x-ray that showed a twisted and out of place bone break. He gently put the bone in normal position. Dr. Vasquez did a great job aligning the broken bone that she did not require surgery. Two months after the injury my daughter is doing awesome.

Review of Dr. Vasquez

- in Easton |

Misdiagnosed my 13 year old son's bone bruise as accessory navicular issue. He's with Orthofast, the McDonalds drive through of Xrays, who's technicians took the wrong view Xray of his foot. Take a pass .....this guy is a turkey and don't expect must more than McDonalds level service or professionalism from Orthofast...aka OSG. Not my first complaint about Doctor(s) at OSG not the first misdiagnosis we've had from them.
