Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

What a jerk. Seriously, when a patient's family ask if after procedure care instructions will be provided in the discharge summary. You shouldn't say "Well, I'm telling you now. I wrote it in my notes if you can read them." No wonder you have such poor ratings.

Dr. Orienstein is completely rude! He doesn't take the time to listen to his patients. He will talk over you and when he asks you a question, he will snap the answer back at you. Like he's mad he has to be at work. If you have gained weight and you're having a problem with your knees he will tell you to loose weight because that's what the issue is. Instead of doing an exam to attempt to figure out the problem. He assumes everyone he sees is a lair and just in there for pain pills. Never again!

Avoid if possible. Saw for an ACL tear. Didn't take time to explain course of treatment. This is especially concerning because a second opinion revealed that the recommended course of treatment was incorrect and strange. I was also charged ~$1000 for a knee brace similar models that ACE sells for $15-$50. Nurse and Doctors have said that they wouldn't have know the pricing. This has led hours of phone calls with unfriendly and unhelpful billing and nursing staff.
