Glad I went through with hip surgery with Dr. Domb. Agree that the financial aspect can be confusing, they should remind patients more than once that the ~50K bills will not ultimately fall on them, to avoid unnecessary worry. I placed one phone call to their billing office in Florida and they sent my refund/hostage check back. I've never encountered a similar process at a doctors office so it was a little odd to me, but I'll take it over going to my in-network surgeon who had less experience!

I felt like this guy was a slimy used car sales man. He made promises I would back doing triathlons. I had the surgery. Pain is gone but I can't run at all. Then I get a bill for $40k because his assistant during surgery was out of network. I spoke with his office and they said it was common practice for him to do that. I sweated that $40k and had to jump through a ton of hoops for 6 months before they would drop it. Poor customer service

I had 2 scopes with Dr. Domb. When I was still in pain, he ended care. After seeing a few other hip surgeons, it was discovered that stuff wasn't fixed correctly or even fixed at all. I ended up needing 4 more hip scopes and spent 5 1/2 years of my life in pain. Wish I didn't see Dr. Domb.

My experience was a very positive one. The office is very efficient. I never had to wait too long. They answered all my questions in a friendly professional manner. I liked how all pertinent people were available to talk to me. I Only saw Dr. Domb only twice, once initially and again before surgery. But I didn't care because the rest of the team was great. I asked how many hip replacements he had done before and found out he has done between 3000-4000! My surgery was successful.

Dr.Domb was a very friendly and knowledgeable doctor. He preformed hip arthroscopy on my torn labrum as well as shaving down my bone. He always made sure I was comfortable and informed. His staff was also very friendly and comforting. He is a great surgeon and doctor. If there was one thing I didn't like about my visit, it was that his staff would not stop commenting on how young I am. I am 19, so yes I know I'm young to have a torn hip, thanks.

Recently had hip surgery by Dr Domb. Excellent experience from start to finish! I have been suffering from hip pain for years now, and after many inaccurate diagnoses by multiple specialists, I was referred to Dr Domb by a colleague who also had hip surgery by him, and had an equally excellent experience and outcome. His staff was helpful and thorough and guided me through the process, and Dr Domb's experience, reputation, education and bedside manner were top notch.
