Long wait times, hurried visits, but the worst part is that Dr. Ginsburg is not warm or friendly towards his young patients. As a parent, you're left wondering why you're coaxing your child to relax and trust him. We went ahead with a surgery, trusting that he would excel there, even though his bedside manner's off. The surgery did go well, but good luck getting in touch with Dr. G. afterwards. He seemed apathetic to post-operative concerns and questions and his office staff is a firewall.
