Dr. Templitz has performed surgery twice for me & both times i was very happy with him & his work.
in Queens Village, NY |
Seen the other reviews, yes i waited a while to see Dr Teplitz, but once he was in the room he talked to me like a person not a number. He treated my injury in an exemplary fashion, all worth the wait. Compare it to the best restaurants around, can you get a reservation an hour before, if you can, well the food probably is not good, but if it is a restaurant that you have to reserve a week in advance, now your talking a good meal. Dr Teplitz is 5 star!

Dr Tiplitz, is a kind caring doctor. He took time to explain everything,has a wonderful bedside matter,I will highly recommend him. Thank you doc!
Massapequa, NY |
DO NOT GO TO THIS DOCTOR!!! They have no respect for patients in their office...if you can even get in! I waited an hour in office with many other people and they never even called to give every one the heads up that the doctor was running this behind. Then when I was finally brought into room and waited another1/2 hr they told me I still had 2 people ahead of me (this was after an hour wait.) No apologies, nothing. Don't waste your time in this unorganized office...go elsewhere.
in Brentwood , NY |
I have been a patient of Dr. Teplitz for a while. Most recently he did surgery on my Finger remove a cyst . I was prescribed pain med but never had to take any. What an excellent job he did!. My finger is healing quite nicely and I am very pleased. Dr. Teplitz is professional and respectful.......Thank you for your great service.
in Bayville, NY |
I called his office and was told Dr. Teplitz could not see me until January 11th, two weeks later. The office manager offered an appointment at 11:45 AM on January 11. I would need to take a few hours off from work but agreed to the time of the appointment. 3 days before the scheduled appointment I received a call from Dr. Tiplet 's office confirming the appointment again. When I arrived at his office I was told my apt. was actually 1:45 PM and I would have to wait 2 hours to see him. I left.
in GlenHead |
I waited 2 hours to see this Dr. Teplitz twice for an inflamed finger. He saw me for 2 minutes and did absolutely nothing for my finger. My finger got so bad that I had to see another Dr. who told me I had an infection in my bone and needed antibiotic immediately. Dr. Teplitz is so overrated. I would not recommend him.
Merrick, NY |
The doctor is very good, but his policies and staff are not. If you have a prior injury and cannot produce all of the old records (even for a very old, healed injury), he refuses to see you (even if you've been his patient for other things). Additionally, the staff at Winthrop Orthopedic are so rude, it makes you reluctant to call and try to deal with. For one problem, I was told to be seen immediately if it recurred, but the staff didn't care. Took me two weeks to be seen.
in Massapequa, NY |
Dr Teplitz has performed surgery on me for a distal bicep tear about 7 years ago. I have been to him ever since and he is my favorite doctor. He repaired me when others said to leave it alone. I have referred anyone I can to him including my own mother so that should say something about him. A++. The down side is he doesn't accept my new insurance now but I will still pay the price to see him.
in Wantagh, NY |
I really liked DR. Teplitz. He has a great bedside manner which being in the medical field, I know is extremely important. His staff & assistant are amazing & friendly.
