Patient Comments (2)
in Glens Falls, N.Y. |
My first Total Hip replacement, by a different surgeon, failed 5 years later. Dr. Hospodar did the revision and it has been 19 years, with no problems. Dr. Hospodar has always been very truthful and respwctful about any of my fears and concerns. He has a great bedside manner. And his assistant (may have changed in the last 5 - 10 years since I saw him last) is also very helpful and knowledgeable. I recomend him to everyone despite moving 3,000 miles away.
in Albany, NY |
I went to Dr.Hospodar for a second opinion on chronic pain in my knee. I left work early to make sure I made my appointment time, only to wait 30 minutes in the waiting room and another 30 minutes in the exam room just to be seen. At one point I changed into shorts & instead of coming right back, he left the room for over 15 minutes and I could hear him outside the door 'chatting.' After referring me for an MRI, he failed THREE times to correctly submit the ppwk. I am now at a new provider.
