What People Say About Dr. Michael Krinsky, MD

I would not recommend using this neurologist for my dog. He does not listen to patients or their families. He is rude when responding to frightened patients. And, he does not assess the effects of medications he prescribed. After 3 months we finally moved the care of our brain injured son to another neurologist. The difference was like night and day! And, the new doctor quietly stated he had several patients who now came to him from Mr. Krinsky's "care" as they were very disturbed by Mr. Krinsky's manners and medical care.

I read the reviews and thought I'd trust more in his medical experience than the opinions of people who left reviews. There were 5 other people in the waiting room when I arrived, I waited a half hour and asked the others how long they were waiting. The flood doors opened, with them telling me of their past experiences of how long a wait there always is. Words like "unprofessional" and "rude" were thrown around. I left, never to return. There are lots of other doctors out there!

Dr. Krinsky likes to hear himself talk. What should be a 15-minute appt. turns into 40+ minutes. Upon seeing a copy of his notes, he is inaccurate & judgmental. At times he is rude & doesn't answer questions asked. After 3 vists (I'd seen his partner for 20 yrs) I'm seeking a new neuro doc. Dr. K never performs a neuro exam; just reads my chart aloud, going back many yrs. which isn't pertinent at this juncture. When I did a headache diary as requested he never looked at it. I wouldn't recommend.
