Permanently injured my daughters foot with poor surgical techniques. Find another doctor. I would give zero stars if that were an option.

I had 3 botched/unnecessary surgeries, and couldn't walk for 14 mo! Dr. Dershowitz has me walking; he gave me my life back! He is kind and gentle, and explains everything. I have had a few procedures, but never any pain while doing them. His bedside manner is wonderful. He doesn't sugarcoat anything; you get an honest answer. His staff is phenomenal. So polite, and always happy to see you. Appointments can be had quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Dershowitz!

Worst. Practice. Ever. Late. Rude. Insensitive. No one there bothers to return phone calls. Complete jerks who do not have their act together.

Dr Dershowitz diagnosed my tarsal tunnel syndrome in 5 mins. 5 other specialists never even mentioned tarsal tunnel syndrome. If you need a specialist Dr Dershowitz is a true specialist. Thank you for your knowledge and kindness.
