Patient Comments (3)
in Philadelphia, PA |
My mother went to Dr. Himelstein for many years. She kept an appointment twice yearly because she was at high risk of colon cancer. A person who believed in doctors, she alerted him when she lost lots of weight and complained of feeling tired. She trusted Dr. Himelstein and expected him to help prevent her from this horrific cancer. August 2014, from an emergency ward visit, my mother was diagnosed with 4th stage cancer. DO NOT TRUST HIM. She died 4/2016.

Dr. Himelstein is careful, kind, clear and attentive to his patients' needs and anxieties. While the "wait time" may sometimes be longer than expected, he is worth the wait.
in Newark, DE |
Dr. Himelstein has a great bedside manner. He seems to understand and he listens. The bad thing is I've waited up to 1.75 hrs waiting for my appointment. I put up with the long wait because I want him to take his time with me.
