Patient Comments (3)
in Norwood, MA |
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Borg-Stein. I was referred to her after numerous injections and 4 spine surgeries. She was very thorough and offered a fresh perspective and treatment options. I've met with many of 'the best' surgeons, neurologists and physiatrists during this journey and Dr. Borg-Stein is certainly one of the best I've worked with. I would highly recommend her. It did take me quiet a while to get an appointment but that tends to be the case when trying to see specialists.
Quincy, MA |
Rude and cindescending- stay away from this doctor . I did not like her attitude toward me when I was in a lot of pain. She treated me rudely and was very impatient with me when I asked just two questions about my situation. I would NEVER go back to her because she really upset me by the way she treated me at a vulnerable time in my life.
in Cambridge, MA |
Her style is terrible. I saw her because I have a bad neck. She ordered an MRI. After I had the MRI recorded, I could not make contact with her. No appointment, no nothing. A complete disconnect. Her office did not enter the MRI results in my record . Avoid this doctor !
