Patient Comments (4)

On time. Examined and pointed out problems. Offered very clear explanations and reviewed evidence based options. Answered all my questions, I never felt rushed. As a physician myself I would definitely recommend Dr Israelite

He is lacking empathy sympathy and a little education on cleanliness before surgery... he is lack thereof everything a surgeon is requiring...I THINK HE HAS HORRIBLE ATTITUDE ..ALONG WITH A DISCONNECT FOR PATIENTSIN PAIN....I would not recommend him to anyone...

Lacks any true concern for pain-suffering patients. Virtually NO "bedside manner ...as he seems allergic to hospital visitation. But if all you're looking for is a empathy-disconnected saw-bones to bash together a new joint or two for you, well, ..this is the guy for you.

Dr. Israelite came into room after other staff looked at my xray and collected little info. I was not weifhed. My temp was not taken. My bp was not taken, etc. He just gave a schpiel, and repeated it. Even pretended to know a friend of mine. Turns out a different surgeon operated on my friend....more
