Patient Comments (4)
Kearny, NJ |
Dr. Rinkus immediately recommended spinal surgery without making any effort to find an alternative such as physical therapy or pain management. He will tell you to get a second opinion from Dr. Rosenbaum who while not in his practice, is a colleague with whom he performs surgery with. These two doctors work together to sell surgery to unknowing patients. I went for a third opinion at Columbia and doctor there was shocked at Rinkus overzealous approach with immediate surgery. Do not use him.

No follow up - told me to call and make an appointment and was told to follow up with another ortho. Nice Dr. NOT!!!
Neptune, NJ |
This doctor at first "pretends" to care but he just tells you what you want to hear. Not writing anything down. Thinking he "can remember everything" Does NOT want to be questioned at all. No follow thru, he pushes all "after care" to his staff which are not nurses They are ordering procedures, medication speaking to other doctors basically "treating you" Had surgery, leaving me worse that prior I woke up with immediate problems. Discharged me knowing there were complications, horrible

The quality of care received after surgery in the hospital from Dr. Rinkus is disappointing, it is near impossible to contact him. At time of surgery I was 42 and it was not my first spinal operation, I knew what the recovery expectations were. Dr. Rinkus refused to consult with me and often called my mother?? he did not respecting my wishes when I asked to speak with my current spinal doctors whom were in the hospital. He left me in more pain than before my operation it has been a nightmare.
