Patient Comments (2)
Babylon, NY |
I had 2 appts,would never go back. He sent me for a CT-Scan which I went for. I asked via the phone for my results no one called me back. My 2nd appt. he said how come you didn't go for your CT scan, I said I did and gave him the date- he fiddled through my paperwork- said oh yeah you did. He seemed really annoyed - told me nothing, asked if I had any questions- I was dumbfounded, waiting for him to go through it- "I said I guess not" he said good-walked out of the room-

I went to Dr. Epelbaum because I was having groin pain and difficulty urinating. He told me I "might" have prostatitis. Might. And also maybe a slight hernia again "maybe" which he then told me he doesn't think is anything serious. I go to my follow up appointment and he asks me why I didn't go to the surgeon he recommended I see (he never mentioned one) for the "hernia" I looked up the surgeon and he had two malpractice suits. I also got a second opinion from another urologist. NO HERNIA.
