Dr. Pedowitz and his staff at Rothman Institute - King of Prussia are horrible. I had an appointment for 2:30 and at 5:00 left without seeing Dr. Pedowitz, getting any form of evaluation or treatment. No one explained to me why I was waiting 2.5 hour and why my appointment wasn't just made for 5:00. Dr. Pedowitz didn't have the common decency or show any level of compassion for his patients by just letting me know what the hold up was or how much longer I could expect to sit. Horrible.
Dear Patient, We are truly sorry and disappointed to learn of the extremely long wait time you endured. Our goal is to exceed patient expectations and we are disheartened that we failed miserably to do so for you. We would love the chance to speak with you directly to gather more detail. If interested, please contact us at 267-339-3689. Sincerely, Rothman Institute

I was treated by Dr Pedowitz for an Achilles rupture. He explained the options I had for treating the rupture. I decided on a surgical repair and everything went smoothly with no complications. He is very caring and skilled. I would highly recommend him! At times there is a wait to see him but that is always the sign of a great doctor to me. He had to fit me into his schedule when I had my injury so I didn't mind when I had to wait.

I wasn't sure if surgery was the way to go, but Dr. Pedowitz showed me why and how. I am more than pleased with the results.

After a bad metatarsal break, I needed a surgeon to install a plate. I got so lucky that Dr. Pedowitz was available. He has a fabulous bedside manner! I worried about some potential complications of surgery, and I was very impressed by how well he listened to my concerns. That made me trust him completely. He spent a lot of time explaining my options clearly and honestly. The surgery went very well. I had remarkably little pain. Wonderful followup. I highly recommend him!

From the get go He was very informative and helpful and let me know my options and what he was going to do.

Dr. Pedowitz successfully operating on my ankle, allowing me to walk without pain. The experience was exceptional from beginning to end. He first recommended physical therapy, which resulted in moderate relief. Scheduling surgery was seamless, from blood tests to medical clearance. Surgery day was calm, professional and without fear. Initial recovery was painless thanks to a nerve block. Total time off my feet was six weeks. After three months of PT, I'm walking like a gazelle!
in Schwenksville, PA |
Dr Pedowitz is fantastic. He is thorough, down to earth, answered every question I had although it was the most important thing he had to do that day. He is friendly, efficient, and caring. I would highly recommend him. The only frustration in the whole process was that he tends to run behind schedule. Once I waited 2 hours, and another time 45 minutes. He is worth the wait.
in Lansdale, PA |
I had a very serious ankle injury that required multiple surgeries including a ligament replacement procedure. I happened upon Dr. Pedowitz by chance and feel incredibly lucky to have had him as my treating physician. Dr. Pedowitz is smart, engaging and has a very pleasant demeanor. He is thorough in his explanations and genuinely cared about me. I would recommend him to anyone.
in Fleetwood, PA |
The experience I had with Dr. Pedowitz exceeded my expectations from the initial consultation through my surgery and followup care. The depth of explanation throughout each step was thorough, relevant and understandable. All questions and concerns were completely addressed. I especially liked his disposition as a physician and the raport that we developed. I selected Dr. Pedowitz by chance when I was considering the procedure that I needed and feel very fortunate regarding the outcome.
