What People Say About Dr. Michael Hausman, MD

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.

Left after waiting 45 minutes (at a 10am appointment). Staff repeatedly lied about wait time.

He was so arrogant that he failed to acknowledge and treat all my relative's complaints, focusing instead on only one area.

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

STAY AWAY! It's been 13yrs & still deal w/pain almost daily.Had to quit all sports & physical activities.Can't even shake somebody's hand.His medical malpractice altered every aspect of my life.I have to think twice about everything I do to make sure my hand doesn't get in the way & won't be further harmed.Was supposed to get 5 stitches, woke up to hand in traction.Something went wrong & he knew it.My hand is badly deformed now, I cry all the time, if not from pain then from just looking at it:(
