Patient Comments (4)

Dr. Fain explained my shoulder problem and answered all of my questions. After surgery I was expecting to be in pain, I had very little to no pain at all. I would not hesitate to use him in the future.

He is very rude and arrogant. He completely disregarded the questions and concerns I had regarding my son's treatment. I would definitely NEVER recommend him to anyone.

I found him very rude. He didn't listen and treated me like a child. If my injury was to complicated for him, he should have said so. I left me questioning my self.

Dr Fain made me feel very confident on the knee replacement from the beginning. He explained everything down to the smallest detail of the surgery and recovery. Wonderful bedside manners. I have one more knee to go and wouldn't hesitate to get it done by him again..
