in Douglassville, PA |
I had a meningioma removed by Dr. Judy at Jefferson in 2013. Began seeing hm for the condition in 2010 at University of Penn. He was very kind, caring and explained everything so it was easy to understand. His bedside manner and level of care is phenomenal! I would highly recommend him!
in Drexel Hill, PA |
Dr. Judy removed my tumor about 10 years ago, and during my treatment, I felt very important. This was because he took the time to explain every step of the surgical process and recovery. I had an amazing outcome that was the result of his experience, a team that was totally patient centric and his communications to my wife through the 16 hour surgery and the skills, knowledge and intellect to scientifically treat the patient but also the good humor and humility to be approachable and caring.
Philadelphia, PA |
I've been a patient of Dr. Judy's since 2003, when he practiced at HUP. His knowledge & surgical skills are nonpareil. I endured a dangerous, critical craniotomy in 2003 & had no complications, aside from hearing loss, which he prepared me for in advance of the surgery. Excellent bedside manner & patience in providing explanations is tops. I have 2 family members with brain tumors--both had successful surgeries w/Dr. Judy. I've seen him as a patient & as a patient advocate. He's #1 in my book.
in Glenside, PA |
Has a nice personality and bed side manner. I felt comfortable with him. When you first meet with him he takes time to review your paper work and explain your condition to you along with all your options. He answered all my questions and seemed to be very knowledgeable.
