Dr Kortbus Explains everything in great detail. Never rushes you. Answers all of my questions. I trust and value his opinion. He has done one surgery on my nose. Very successful, no pain afterwards. He also has done a procedure called Clarafix. Once again successful. Dr Kortbus is the best.

There is no room for improvement. His staff is fri Jul 30 2020

I went in with right knee pain so bad I could not walk. Dr Colman only spent about 60 seconds with me, NEVER touched my knee or looked at it, just said you need some xrays. When they came back negative he said you need an MRI. He was rude, dismissive and seemed not to care about his patients.

Review for Dr. Abraham

During my time under her care, Dr Hambright's behavior was less than professional and in fact, very rude. It seemed as though she would confuse me with other patients. I found it very difficult to discuss my concerns with her. In my opinion, she is a self-righteous bully.

You can not ask for a more caring, intelligent Doctor. Dr Katz listens to what you have to say, he offers you options to consider and treats you like family. Dr Katz has been the most trustworthy doctor I have ever visited. I could not be more grateful than to have him as a urologist.

My sister was diagnosed with an agressive form of breast cancer and Dr. W. should have urged my sister to have a mastectomy but instead opted for a lumpectomy. She's dead and I blame Dr. Weinstein. Sorry I just do.

Dr Haleem is very thorough. He takes his time while explaining things to you. I have always felt very confident under his care. I have just moved to Florida and my one misgiving is that I won't find a doctor as dedicated as Dr Haleem. You won't go wrong with him. Wish me luck.

Insecure doctor..couldn't see me for 2 months due to vacation and backed up but when I saw another doctor in the meantime, she flipped out. We parted ways. It would have been ok if I had seen another doctor in her medical office but not in another office. Very very insecure and inflexible.
