in Mamaroneck, NY |
Just want to say that we just met with him and he was extremely rude and gave us a prognosis without any knowledge of what he was saying. He made two days of our lives so unbearable we couldn't even speak. This "doctor" should stick to putting casts on broken wrists instead of anything else for the rest of his profesional career.

Unforgettable emergency situation, Dr. Nercessian was at the right place at the right time. At least from my POV, I could have said it the other way around. In brief, his team and students at Columbia brought me peace of mind during a time when I could have lost my mind. Dealing with a traumatic injury, having an accident while playing your favorite sport is a unforgettable moment in time. When time seems to stay still, for longer than normal, there are not many things that bring peace of mind.

I went to see Dr. Nercessian after a fall while I was on vacation. I was seen in his office after I had an Xray done in the same building. My visit with this doctor lasted approximately 5 minutes at which time he did not examine my leg or perform an type of assessment. He missed the fracture of my xray which was clear when I was seen by another doctor in his own practice. He should not be practicing medicine if he does not want to examine patients!!! He does not provide expert care!

If you are an individual that prefers to intelligently discuss your injury and ways of managing it; then this is not the Doctor for you. He is the type that lays down the diagnosis and does not want to discuss it with you so that you can manage the injury in a way that works for your lifestyle.
