Dr. Binderow performed surgery on my husband a few months ago and had complications after surgery which he chose to ignore. Due to his negligence we sought out another surgeon who had to redo what Dr. Binderow had done previously and said it was a hot mess! My husband was never going to heal, per Binderow "give it time, it will heal". He has the worst bed side manners ever, rude, arrogant, does not listen to his patients. So happy we moved onto a much better surgeon!

I waited in the ER for 18 hours in order to have Dr. Binderow do my surgery as he was recommended as the best. He saved my life!

Great experience and great care! If you are looking for a new friend to hang out with in the exam or recovery room rather than someone who is focused on doing a great job medically, he's not your guy (he stays on the move, and as a result, cares for plenty of patients - easy to get into see him quickly and schedule surgery promptly despite the fact that he is in high demand). If you are looking for an excellent doctor clinically to take GREAT care of you, it will be hard to find a finer doctor.

He reversed a temp. Ostamy i had... Staples removed wi hin 48 hrs of surgery and i now have a HUGE incisional hernia he later confirmed but NEVER followed up after surgery, informed me of the hernia, and is MOST LIKELY RESPONSIBLE for the horrorible condition i am now in. He has no heart, never visited my room after surgery, where i was kept an extta 2-3 wks... He is HORRIBLE. Stay away!!! I would rate 0 if i could.

Dr. Binderow did a great job on my surgery and I was feeling better in no time. He took time to answer all of my questions before and after as well.

Changed my life. In a good way!! I've had 4 invasive fully open abdominal procedures and he did the last 3. I always tell him I hope I never see you again jokingly but he knows I truly adore him. Just wish I didn't have another hernia (#8) since I know already it'll require surgery #5!! Staff is awesome too.
