After many years of excruciating pain I knew it was time to find the right surgeon. The very first time I met Dr. Rich I trusted him completely. He is by far the best....kind,understanding, so knowledgeable,experienced and overall wonderful. Had a total right hip replacement at the Hospital of Special Surgery in NYC. Have recommended him to several people. Will be having knee replacement with him also. Cannot praise him enough and the hospital is quite fantastic.
What a great Dr. He has kept me out of the hospital like he said he would. I know one day I will have to bite the bullet and have a knee replacement but for the past several years he has kept his word. Very personable and polite. He is not like some other Drs. I have visited that want to do surgery the first time you see them. Go see him and I feel you will like him also.

Patricia was above and beyond helpful in scheduling my appointments. The insurance company was also giving me a difficult time about the medication I needed and the time it would be shipped. Patricia, again, went above and beyond. She is an asset to the staff here.

I cannot say enough about this practice. Dr Rich is the best and I would highly recommend him. His staff goes above and beyond as well, especially Patricia, Marina and Joanna!
New York, NY |
Dr Rich is by his own words extremely conservative. He didn't ask any questions when he arrived into room. He just looked at xray and said well I've seen worse.I'm sure true but all people are affected in different ways. He did review medical conditions and said based upon my medical history he would hobble around and skip surgery. He wasn't interested enough because he said I'm not that aggressive. It's your interpretation.

One of the best Md's of all time and I have known thousands.

Manhasset, NY |
I have been a patient of Dr. Rich in past years and I had a TERRIBLE fall in Dec. I broke my femoral condyle in my knee. Not only did I have to Plead and Beg in tears for an appointment but Dr. Rich and His staff were beyond COLD AND UNCARING!! The doctor was SO removed from helping me get the proper help! I needed an MRI and possibly surgery and he and his staff did nothing to help me . I was BEGGING in PAIN They did NOTHING! I ended up in the HOSPITAL for 4 days and NEVER HEARD FROM HIM
