Dr. Popowitz is the best. I hurt my knee while water skiing and he saw me the next day when I returned home from vacation. He was kind, caring and compassionate. He had excellent bed side manner. I ultimately required surgery and my knee is doing great. I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

Awful! If your like your doctor to treat you with condescension, like you're a nuisance, and like he can't wait to be rid of you - then he's your guy. I'm a very easy going, non-demanding patient. Just would like some help, understanding and maybe a few questions answered. He was amazingly unhelpful. The asst. we saw first was a chip off his block. Rude, unpleasant people. And what's with that waiting room? Looks like an airport. Are they expecting hordes limping through the doors?

Would not recommend Dr. Popowitz. Both appointments lasted a total of 5 minutes & felt so rushed. This place is more like a factory then a medical office.

Just left a post operative check up, five weeks after surgery by Dr. Popowitz . It was another exceptional experience. The incision is straight and smooth and is healing extremely well. The office staff is professional, kind and courteous. I am very satisfied with how everything is going!
