Took my grandma to Maimonides hospital to check her back pain. Waited two hr for Dr betchen she wouldn't even ask questions and spend less than 5 min on my grandma and tell us to go home. She totally ignore my grandma agony pain and dismiss us. We went home and so disappointed. My grandma is still in pain. Never experienced a inconsiderate and heartless person.

Dr. B. is the best in the business. She restored my 19 year old daughters spinal fracture like it never even happened. She took the time to answer all of our questions and ease my worries. As one of the few female neurosurgeons in the country I thank God I placed my trust and my daughters care in her capable hands.
