Patient Comments (3)
Dr. Hyman is a very intelligent, friendly, and informative doctor. As for treatment opportunities, Dr. Hyman provides the patient with many surgical alternatives. I was under his care for 10 years, he performed necessary surgery on my legs. I was born with club foot and after few years I developed a discrepancy. Now I am 18 years old and I am physically capable of doing anything I can possibly dream of which would not have been possible without Dr. Hyman's procedures.

The wait is ridiculous.. over 1.5 hours . No one should have to wait that long to see a doctor for a short visit.

When I got to the office, asked what would the wait be, and his staff laughed at me. Now I understand. Waited over 2 hrs to see this Dr. When he came in, he was condescending, rude and unprofessional. He gave us 3 minutes, and told us all was good to come back next yr. that all my 6 yr old daughter needed was a hair brush- yes it's hot and we have been waiting for hours. He said - good, you are better than most. What a disappointment- he looks great online -should get ethics training
