Review of Dr. Mesfin


Extremely disappointed and frustrated from the overall experience with both Dr. Mesfin and Strong Ortho. I am not someone who goes to doctors often but unfortunately I became injured due to a situation out of my control. The lack of empathy and bedside manner I experienced only reinstated in my mind the fact that some doctors treat their patients “like a number.” I found him to be very passive aggressive and uninterested. In fact he didn’t even say goodbye , he just walked right out of the room.

Review of Dr. Mesfin

-Pittsford, NY |

I have constant back/shoulder blade pain and discomfort that has been progressively worse over the past couple of years, which I suspected may be related to scoliosis. He gave me about 10 minutes and rushed me out, did not treat me like I was there for a valid reason, did not answer my questions, and clearly did not understand my problem because he ordered an MRI of my right shoulder rather than my back/right shoulder blade. I am baffled by the incompetence - a huge waste of my time.

Review of Dr. Mesfin

- in Henrietta, NY |

I've seen Dr. Mesfin since 2012 for sudden worsening of my scoliosis,which I had since youth due to newly found osteopenia/osteoporosis. I experienced nerve pain on my left side and was listing to the left after being on my feet for 8 to 12 hours working as a nurse..Dr. Mesfin allowed for workup/ treatment of my condition, as well as working with a personal trainer 3x/week and explaining surgical options fully .My surgery on 5/1/2015 straightened me and took away my nerve pain.I am grateful.

Review of Dr. Mesfin

- in Fairport, NY |

Dr. Mesfin takes his time to explain test results in layman's terms. He reviews the actual x-ray images with you, pointing out the problem areas. He never makes you feel rushed and gives you whatever time you need to make sure that your questions are fully answered. I have already recommended Dr. Mesfin to others who have back issues.
