Patient Comments (3)
in Philadelphia, PA |
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...
Philadelphia, PA |
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. Injected cortisone, but did not tell me knees could require icing or that an anti-inflammatory could be necessary. My records were confused, and they continued to do so, even after I cautioned repeatedly.
