Patient Comments (4)

Had hips replaced 6 years ago. Still in pain unable to walk, sit or stand for any length of time. Would not recommend Dr. Kastenbaum. He was not truthful with outcome. Waited average 2 half hours to see doctor. He had hand on door handle entire time. Did not give me any time.

Worst doctor I've ever gone to. Thinks nothing of lying. Has no concern for his patients. He sets the trend for his staff which copies his poor habits. I would never allow anyone in my family go to him.

Horrible demeanor, rude, always at least 3 hours late with his appointments and he could care less. Does not listen and disregards any pain you may describe and will tell you "it's impossible" to have pain if you have a metal hip. HORRIBLE human being.

You don;t go to a knee replacement specialist for warm, fuzzy handholding. Dr. K. and his PA Peter Wolny are world class. I'm very glad they did my TKR.
