Review of Dr. Vazquez


Dr. Vazquez was very personable and explained his diagnosis clearly, including potential healing time and follow up treatment. He also patiently answered the numerous questions that my wife and I had.

Review of Dr. Gross

Dr. M: well if you want hugs and cuddles, buy a puppy. If you want professionalism, results and follow through, no one is better.

Review of Dr. Giuffrida


I'm 100% satisfied! I've had some good doctors, and some great doctors. Dr. Giuffrida is one of the great ones! At the first visit, she took the time to diagnose my wrist, explain to me what my options were, and advise me of the treatment she thought most appropriate for me. I left there having an injection and receiving a proper wrist brace. I found this to be exactly what I needed. At the one month follow-up visit, I'm almost completely pain free. She advised me to come back in two months if I feel I need further care. I found Dr. Giuffrida to be professional, ethical, caring, and personable. Needless to say I highly recommend her.

Review of Dr. Gross


I would never recommend him to anyone. Had a horrible knee surgery experience. If you need a competent orthopedic you should see Dr. Dizdarevic. He is with Ridgewood Orthopedics. I have had knee problems since my teen years, This guy is the best

Review of Dr. John


Very efficient office. I had an xray and consultation in about 30 minutes. Dr. John was friendly, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Fortunately, I didn't need ongoing treatment, but I would go back again if a future need arises.

Review of Dr. Vazquez


I'm reading these great reviews & I wish I had a good experience. He came highly recommended to me by 2 people. From these reviews, I guess it's hit or miss on good treatment. You can't get intouch with his office or get a return call. He is short and is out the door before you can ask a question. Always had to remind him of my issue(s). When I questioned why I wasn't getting better, his response was usually how many of these surgeries he does. Well I had to have another surgery (not with him).

Review of Dr. Rhim

- in River Edge |

I came to Dr. Richard Rhim after suffering from severe sciatica pain for 6 months. I had a herniated disc that was pressing on the nerve, which shot pain down my entire left leg. Dr. Rhim took the time to answer every single question I had pre-op and post-op, and now I am pain free and recovering after my microdiscectomy surgery. This is a doctor that is cool, calm, and collected, and he is as kind as he is talented. He is a doctor that truly cares about his patients. I recommend him most highly
