Review of Dr. Stoffman

-

I have more pain in my lower back now than I ever had a full year after he operated on me. I never saw him after the surgery. Only the PA. I tried to make an appointment to see him after the surgery but I was told that you can't have an appointment with him, only a PA. I found him to be very arrogant. Very bad experience with him. Stay away.

Review of Dr. Stoffman

-

Dr Stoffman operated on my lower back 9 months ago and I now have more pain than I ever had before surgery. At my 6 month appointment with him he told me that I would just have to suck it up and that's it. I was better off before he operated on me. I wish I had never gone to him.

Review of Dr. Stoffman

-

Dr. Stoffman avoids patient contact. I was scheduled for lumbar surgery 8 a.m. and did not see the doctor or followup until 4 p.m. The next day I did not have a follow up vs, with the doctor, nor for the rest of the hospital and rehab time. He seemed to offset all responsibility to the PA.

Review of Dr. Stoffman

-

I was operated on in 2015, when I woke up from my back surgery, I was paralyzed in the legs. Little did I know then that my bladder and bowels were affected also. I still can’t walk unaided. He kept saying “this has never happened to me before “. Well over 3 years and I’m living in agony with neuropathy pain in a foot that’s paralyzed. I’m devastated!

Review of Dr. Tomak

-Ridgewood, NJ |

Does not like after hour calls He does not act professionally if he is disturbed. I do not trust a physician who becomes emotional and asks why you are calling him after office hours. Not a nine to five job. Would not ever return to him.

Review of Dr. Tomak

-New Haven |

Impeccable skills; technical, intellectual and surgical. Dr. Tomak's bed side manner and communication style was above and beyond. Took more time than he had on his calendar to explain surgical options and approach. Both pre-op and post op visits were comprehensive. His empathy and ability to connect with the patient and the patient's family was unprecedented.

Review of Dr. Tomak

- in Bridgeport |

Unlike another Dr that I went to who insisted to perform spine surgery due to 2 completely broken off discs, Dr. Tomak, listened to my concerns and decided not to perform spine surgery. He gave me alternative health care suggestions and told me it will take 6-8 weeks for my back to regenerate and feel better. I highly recommend Dr. Tomak. He looks out for your recovery. Not just to make money off you like other Dr.’s.

Review of Dr. Diluna

-

Dr. Diluna has very good bed side manners. Dealing with a chronic condition requires a doctor that you can trust and rely on. From my encounter with him, I can tell you that he looks out for his patients, and does his best to give you medical advice backed by several research.
