      He is the best surgeon and has a wonderful bedside manner! I have refereed patients to him and they have been just as happy. MMMC

      Had an endoscopy with Dr. Nusbaum. Found out my band is wrapped around my esophagus. Endoscopy went REALLY well. I was in and out really fast and have no memory of procedure! Was very nervous while waiting to have iv put in place. He stayed in OR and chatted while I waited making all my anxiety dissipate! Made me feel completely at ease!! Having surgery with Dr Nussbaum next week to remove the band and not nervous at all!

      I had surgery with Dr Nusbaum two years ago. He did a sleeve on me and I went from 265lbs to 135 lbs. I used to be 5'5" but somehow I'm only 5'4" now and I look and feel great thanks to Dr Nusbaum and his amazing staff. He is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever met. He spends so much time with me that I feel guilty taking up his valuable time. He is truly the greatest. I recommend him to everyone.
      Overall I had a negative experience. He came highly recommended, however he does not get to know his patients. He placed a removable filter in me prior to my procedure stating that it was necessary. The filter a few months later was banned and unable to be removed in surgery. Current medical procedures/protocols were not followed. Dr. Nusbaum has questionable ethics. He is more concerned with money than his patients well being. A long list of unacceptable behavior for a physician.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
