What People Say About Dr. Howard Ginsburg, MD
Reply
Dr. G saved my child's life. And unfortunately, my son's condition is such that we must go back to visit Dr G often. His bedside manner to our newborn and now toddler has always been patient and fun. While he may not spend more time than the bare minimum with us, we get through everything we need to and he is always patient to answer each and every one of our questions. We've had a great experience with him.

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.
