My name is Robin Mancini. It was the worse Colonoscopy of my life. I have PTSD from sexual abuse as a child. The medicine did not work. He didn’t care. He basically anally raped me again. Darling nurse, Mary, gave me her phone number. Regret I did not sue, but was too frightened. Do NOT SEE HIM. Have had a ton of Colonoscopy and Endoscopy. Bottom of the barrel.

I had a colon resection at Dr. Binderow's recommendation after a routine colonoscopy. I was asked in his office to sign papers agreeing within two hours after anesthesia to have a benign polyp removed, I developed an infection which lasted for weeks and was finally treated by another doctor after my follow up with Dr. Binderow. The scar had to be repaired and within three months after surgery I developed a large hernia which required more surgery.

Dr Binderow is one of the best doctors I’ve ever had. I was fortunate enough to have an urgent appointment with him to examine an extremely painful large thrombosed internal hemorrhoid OMG. He was efficient, to the point, explained the options and was empathetic enough to schedule me that very day for a hemorrhoidectomy after his last surgery, even though it was in the evening. He did an amazing job—zero pain starting immediately after surgery and the hospital staff were outstanding.

Dr Binderow is the best ever! He took me in under his wing and took care of me through multiple surgeries! I would highly recommend him. His staff is so kind. All I can say I live in Newnan and it takes me over an hour one way. However when you have that kind of trust in a doctor you stick with him!

Worst bedside manner ever! The lack of advice and guidance for my post-surgery care was astounding. During follow-up visits, he would spend a total of 7 seconds in the patient room and then zip out after only saying a few words. Health care at its WORST!!!

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.
