Saw Dr. Auerbach last August for my broken elbow. He was very nice and put me at ease. He even used humor during our visit and was genuine in his concern for what happened to me. I felt so comfortable with him that I asked him about a ganglion cyst on my wrist. He suggested surgery. I had to postpone for several months but when I emailed the scheduling nurse, I got an immediate response and just had my surgery yesterday. No forgetting me in the shuffle. They are prompt and professional.

Dr David Auerbach not only has a terrible bed side manner but his treatment of my elbow tendinitis was useless. It cost me $203.58 out of pocket for his treatment which was a complete waste of time and money. In addition, he padded the bill by ordering and ultrasound and an X-Ray for a condition that was obviously tendinitis. His cortisone shot might as well have been pure water since it was completely ineffective. I strongly advise any patients avoid him and find another orthopedist.

I went in because I had suspected that I dislocated my shoulder. He answered a personal phone call while he was in the examining room with me. He never asked where I was feeling pain. Instead of addressing my elbow he pretty much ignored me and what I was trying to tell him while he fiddled on the computer. I felt so disrespected. He never addressed what happened with my elbow.

Dr. Auerbach took care of my rotator cuff problem without surgery. I was unable to lift my arm or get dressed without help for many months. I tried acupuncture, body work, yoga, everything non-Western-medicine first, to no avail. Dr. Auerbach examined & xrayed & identified a rotator cuff issue. He prescribed P.T. and a cortisone shot. First cortisone shot worked for a few months, then the pain came back. Second cortisone shot did the trick. I'm pain free and fully functional for 3 yrs now.

Would not recommend this doctor as he has an unfriendly attitude and over all poor bedside manner. You cannot reach anyone easily and his voicemails are responded to in order of importance rather than a timely fashion. He genuinely does not really seem to care all that much about his patients and their health needs. Also had me waiting for an hour to see him.
