What People Say About Dr. Roman Nowygrod, MD

I have never met a LESS caring doctor in my life! He treated my dad prior to his death and not only was the most miserable human being I've ever met but his treatment for my dad was terrible, making his circulation problems far worse long-term and resulting in a painful 3 day weekend after Nowygrod ordered a procedure on a Friday and was completely unreachable until Tuesday despite my dad's excruciating pain and repeated calls and emails to him. Upon his return, when I tried to calmly discuss the situation with him, describing the pain my dad was in all weekend he turned his back on me and walked away while I was in mid-sentence. I would spit in his face if I ever saw him again. He should not be a licensed doctor nor affiliated with an excellent hospital like NYP.

He does not have a good bedside manner--no chance to ask questions, he runs out of the door so quickly. After speaking with other doctors, I learned he is notorious for not talking to patients. Can't speak to his surgical skills, but definitely does not make the grade for bedside manner--was left uninformed regarding treatment options for months until I saw someone more conscientious.

Dr Nowygrod covered my attending Dr Morrisey who did a procedure and then went out of town. He is brillant has a great bedside manner. I knew him when was a great attending when I was an intern at this hospital. He still is! Thank you for taking such good care of me!
