Dr. Gharbaoui is by far the best orthopedic Dr. His knowledge, patience, & kindness are just a few top qualities that he possesses. He never rushes you, takes time to listen, & understand before just throwing out a diagnosis, surgery, or temporary fix. I've been his patient for about a year now & he treated my teenage son before that. Hands down(no pun intended), the best! His RN, Dorothy is as sweet as can be & she always makes an effort to speak to me when I come in.

Good surgeon. Bad bed side manner. At the follow-up the doctor scolded me that I did not have full range of motion in my wrist and said that most people at 6 weeks do. He then grabbed my wrist and said ,"Let's see if we can get full range and he took both of his hands and twisted my arm and said,"There, that is full range."! I asked several questions and they went unanswered. He just looked at me and said "you are good."
I had hand surgery with the insurance of a full recovery.Two years later, a lot of visits to PTs and chiropractors my hand still doesnt have full range of motion.According to two other orthopedic doctors ,the surgery was done the wrong way and the the cast should have been removed earlier than the doctor proposed .

Great Surgeon did surgery on my wrist after a major accident on may 2014 Surgery was done only after 35 days due to Insurance issues. He did a great job.

He said my mother needed surgery immediately and we started the process, here it is 5 months later and no surgery. They have cancelled at the last moment 3 times. His office doesn't return her calls unless I call, they realized they hadn't sent precerts the day before surgery and they keep blaming hospital admin when my mom checks every few days. Meanwhile my mother is living in horrible pain and hoping her arm is still repairable.
