Patient Comments (4)
in Englewood, CO |
While I agree that he is rude, appears not to care, and has absolutely no bedside manner, he knows what he is doing, it took him 20 minutes to diagnose me with Meralgia Paraesthetica, after a dozen doctors at Swedish and Sky Ridge scratched their heads. He knew immediately upon hearing my symptoms what the problem was and gave me a test to make his diagnosis conclusive. If you are looking for a social pleasant person look elsewhere, if you are looking for a good Neurologist, he's your guy.

Dr. Morgenstern is frankly awful. As many reviewers have written, he diagnoses patients before seeing or hearing them, is disinterested in empathetic care, and he refuses to coordinate care with your other healthcare professionals. Further, he allows his personal prejudices to cloud his practice of medicine, and uses his judgement of you as a person determine your worthiness to be treated with respect and in accordance with medical best practices.
I got the feeling I was diagnosed before I sat down. I was not able to go over the history of my symptoms, explain why I was taking the medications I was taking and felt rushed. He was uninterested in my current diseases and was uniterested in what other doctors had to say on it. Did the basics on reflexes and balance and told me I have anxiety and sent me away. If he doesn't have time to go over symptoms with patients maybe it is time to retire.

He is a rude man, he doesn't take the time to understand your medical issues. I highly suggest to find a doctor who cares about your well being.
