He’s wonderful and I wouldn’t trust another docto
He is in a league of his own & the very best !!! His staff does not answer the phone, you have to wait days or a week for a return call from Them. They do NOT care ! Roth blame it on their phone system. Well - don’t they have a manager ?

Excellent skills!!
Dr Denehy was the only surgeon who could handle my complicated surgery. No other doctor would operate on me as there was extensive scar tissue and adhesions from 5 prior gynecological surgeries. Dr. Denehy was confident and not detoured by the level of difficulty of removing almost 40 fibroid tumors and a full hysterectomy, even with the challenge of the severe scar tissue. The surgery was a complete success and I will be forever grateful for his immense surgical skills. He is truly a gifted surgeon!

Phenomenal Surgeon
I can’t say enough about Dr Deheny. He has performed two surgeries on me and both were successful. He gave me my quality of life back. I wouldn’t hesitate to see him or recommend anyone to him.

Outstanding Doctor
Dr. Denehy is an outstanding doctor. I have been Dr. Denehy’s patient for the past few years. His surgical skills are superior as I can attest to having had two successful complicated surgeries. In each instance he was patient and compassionate and took the time to answer my questions and concerns. He discussed with me my surgical options and why he had chosen the one that best suited my situation. I would recommend Dr. Denehy to anyone needing his expertise and skill. I am truly blessed to have had Dr. Denehy as my surgeon.

Bad Experience
Horrible, I initially had my first visit with Dr. Thad Denehy which went well. He referred me to Dr. Eric Liberman due to him being busy and it will take 3months. Well, it's now been 4 months and no surgery date. A biopsy was conducted and a month later was notified that he didn't take enough and it had to be done again which the procedure is painful. You can never get in contact with him or the staff. At this point I'm seeking another specialist. Time wasted since October.

Extremely rude office personnel were loud, condescending and insulting. I first questioned the photo consent then declined it. With the little power they have, the first desk clerk added more time to my already long wait by calling 3 people who arrived after me to be seen first. I did not feel welcomed there from the time I arrived. The doctor, Thad Denehy, MD, was no better than his office staff. He was loud, extremely impatient and an overall egotistical bully. This was not the doctor I had read about with all the outstanding credentials. My assumptions regarding Dr. Denehy's disposition and decorum were all wrong. The doctor I saw was short tempered, crass and behaved nothing like a physician should. I knew within 2 minutes of encountering Dr. Denehy that he was not for me. I skipped the exam and practically ran out of there.

Dr. Denehy is amazing. I felt like his evaluation of my health was very decisive and comprehensive. My surgery went perfectly, apart from a random, out-of-network surgeon joining in, unbeknownst to me - that was expensive! Dr. Denehy’s office staff is abysmal, though. They don’t return phone calls, don’t fill out paperwork in a timely manner, and their attitude is indifferent at best. I was happy to have superior healthcare from an excellent surgeon, but the experience was frustrating and miserable with his office staff.

My experience with Dr. Denehy was a 5-star!!!! Dr. Denehy is an excellent, top-notch, straight forward doctor. I had a very large fibroid and was worried how it would impact my ability to have children, and Dr. Denehy was very direct in what he plans to do with his surgery and advised me of his surgical options. While I was waiting to be taken into surgery, Dr. Denehy saw that I was visibly nervous and came to my bedside to chat and while also having one of his nurses give me something to ease my tension. This is just a depiction of his ability to not only be a great doctor, but to also show that he is always watching his patients and what is going on. I really appreciated this because it is a more personable experience with the doctor and shows his awareness and level of care for his patients. I am so grateful to Dr. Denehy for making this experience as seamless as possible and for the amazing outcome! I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Denehy to anyone especially with more complex issues!

My wife has been a patient of Dr Denehy's Livingston office for over 8 years. Ever since Dr. Taylor left, she has noticed a remarkable decline in the way her medical care has been handled by his office staff and their complete ineptitude and lack of compassion. One staff member has consistently called in the wrong prescriptions, notes the incorrect appointment times, and in-person, has the attitude of someone who is being inconvenienced by them having to actually do their job. When issues arise where biopsies and scans are needed, the disconnect between doctor and patient becomes glaringly obvious. When a doctor’s practice operates a revolving door of patients, office staff have a tremendous amount of responsibility. However, they also have a tremendous amount of power to screen patient's calls, keep them from speaking with doctor's directly, and all-around fail, with no repercussions, in getting their patient's the prompt medical attention they may need. Use at your own risk.

It's hard to leave a review for a doctor online, as we want our patient confidentiality to be maintained. Let me just say that after 10+ years of dealing with a health issue that every other doctor shrugged at, I finally found Dr. Denehy. He listens, he's a straight shooter, and most importantly he's a master in his field. I've had two procedures by him and have never felt so safe and taken care of. I've met strangers who raved about him in passing, and nurses who told me he's the one they call when things go haywire in the hospital. There are not enough words to thank Dr. Denehy for the pain free life he has given me!!! If you're looking for a doctor, don't think twice, we need more doctors like him!!!

My primary Dr. recommended Dr. Denehy and I am very glad she did. He is an exceptional Dr. Despite certain issues and problems with my particular case and situation he was able to use the least invasive solution and surgery.

Dr. Denehy is the BEST. After my GYN doctor referred him I inquired about him. Everyone from the hospital staff to doctors that I got medical opinions from only had great things to say about Denehy & his expertise. Everyone assured me that I was in the best possible hands. True to their words his skill is unbelievable. Not only is he an amazing surgeon he is very caring. He took time to explain everything to me.... So glad for the referral it was truly a blessing. I highly recommend Dr Denehy.

Dr. Denehy was highly recommended by a few different doctors and I can not stress enough that if you have a medical condition, you need to see Dr. Denehy. He is so compassionate and kind. He takes the time to explain everything and he truly cares about you. I have spoken to so many people and I hear the same response, he is the best!!! He just performed surgery on me and I absolutely loved him. Even at the hospital, the nurses stressed to me that I was in good hands and I was!!

I would not recommend this doctor. He is obviously too overwhelmed to keep track of his patients. asked for results of an test I had a month ago. He told me everything was normal yet I get a call 4 days later stating that they found something on my images...So far for the results being normal. The office staff is even worse very lazy office staff. I am glad to be done with all the frustration with that office.

I went to see Dr. Denehy for a second opinion. He came highly recommended by an OB/GYN. Her comments were that Dr. Denehy would "do the right thing." He certainly did. He reviewed all of my lab results, sent them out for further analysis, spent a great deal of his time with me, and then called me himself to discuss a treatment plan. Such a fresh respectful interaction for me. I was so grateful to him for providing such a comprehensive compassionate visit. Excellent professional doctor.
