Excellent! Many years ago I damaged the artery in my hand. Dr. Hausman repaired it and I haven't had any problems. I could have lost my hand if it wasn't for him.

I have visited Dr. Hausman on multiple occasions (having been referred by my knee surgeon). The first time I visited Dr. Hausman was for a bicep tendon tear wherein he diagnosed the tear, performed the surgery and all follow-up visits. During the course of that treatment, Dr. Hausman was thorough, highly professional and took the time to explain the diagnosis, course of treatment and recovery in detail. He also answered all of my questions regarding the surgery and recovery. I am happy to say that my bicep is back and better (stronger and more stable) than before. He is an exceptional surgeon.

I have been with Mount Sinai for over 18 years. It’s become worse since Dr. Springfield left. Dr. Hausman, while a fantastic surgeon and quite intelligent, can be incredibly arrogant. His bedside manner is awful at best. His receptionist is very rude. She will not assist you in a timely fashion if she decides to assist you at all. The staff needs an entire overhaul. Start listening to your patients. Maybe even pretend to care.

I was admitted to Mt Sinai hospital west onto his inpatient service due to a medical problem with my hand. I was admitted to Dr Hausman inpatient service, yet he never met with me or evaluate my progress. After 3 days of being in the hospital, and still having not being seen by my attending physician, Dr Hausman, I signed myself out of that hospital and sought treatment elsewhere. I have 5 different medications which I need to take daily, none of which I received for almost 2 days. And 2 of which I still had not received after being there 3 days, despite the meds being in stock in hospital pharmacy, 1 of these meds is the sole medication for my pulmonary hypertension which is severe. Despite my several requests and explanations of its importance, it was never ordered for me. And multiple requests made to meet with the doctor yielded no results. I had to sign out of hospital and seek treatment elsewhere.

I’m so thankful We did not rely on the negative reviews in here! I took my son to see Dr Hausman yesterday and the doctor’s character reflected none of these negative traits! He was thoughtful, careful, and extremely thorough in his analysis. He took the time to read through a medical report we brought and to comment on it. He answered every one of our questions. There is nothing arrogant or condescending in him. He was quiet and respectful.

I saw Dr. Michael Hausman in regard to my Basal Arthritis issue with my right and left thumbs. He was recommended by my Rheumatologist at Mt. Sinai as surgery was now my only option and Dr Hausman is one of the top surgeons in this field. He is not, great with the bedside manner, but he does answer questions, and gives a realistic picture of the outcome of the surgery. The surgery on the left thmb went extremely well, I'm 8 weeks out, no more pain, should be back to normal in 12 weeks!

Hausman dismissed the nerve injury in my arm after I waited more than 90 min in his office. He failed to thoroughly evaluate my arm and the limited range of motion and weakness. He barely glanced at my imaging, which clearly documents a huge problem. The entire appointment lasted 8 minutes. I found care at HSS with a fabulous and caring arm specialist who provided me with extensive diagnostic testing, PT, bracing and home exercises. I eventually had successful surgery @ HSS-THE best for ortho

Dr. Hausman successfully treated three trigger fingers on my left hand and I was able to resume drumming within three weeks of his surgery. He is a masterful surgeon and his level of experience speaks for itself. I have recommended Dr. Hausman to every person that I know who has acquired a repetitive motion injury of the hands.

Dr. Hausman was phenomenal throughout my time and care. I needed a reconstructive surgery on my elbow, and both prior to and after the surgery the visits were to the point, I was provided with all information requested and pertinent & I found all of the staff to be greatly helpful. The surgery itself exceeded all expectation in terms of recovery & procedure, and multiple orthopedists review afterward have all reacted with amazement after review of both my xrays & physical movement.

Although I previously had surgery with Dr. Hausman for a different injury and found his treatment to be more than adequate, I had an extremely negative experience during an office visit yesterday that I felt compelled to share. Dr. Hausman was dismissive, condescending and rushed during my appointment for which he kept me waiting for almost an hour while seeing other patients. He spoke to me this way in front of trainees and did not examine me or ask any specific questions about my pain.

Dr. Housman has encyclopedic knowledge of his specialty, and he shared it with me when discussing my problem readily and clearly. He has never tried to impose on me a procedure or a test that was not absolutely necessary. Most importantly, I can see his sincere desire to help the patient the best way possible, no matter how hard it is. He really doesn't spare his time or effort when it's necessary and readily enlists other specialists that he knows can be of help.To me, it is true compassion.

I had some apprehension after reading some negative reviews, but I found Dr. Hausman to be a lovely gentleman. He was conservative in his treatment of my son's injury, which I really appreciated. Don't believe the negative reviews! Dr. Hausman is extremely competent and nice. His staff was great, too.

Very strange visit. He didn't really speak with me. I asked questions and he didn't answer them. His treatment of my broken wrist was odd. I made a subsequent appointment with another wrist specialist at NYU Langone who was quite surprised at the treatment I had received at Dr. Hausman. Langone doc was able to answer all of my questions and his treatment seems to be working quite well. I would avoid Dr. Hausman.
