Came to doctor rho for a broken hand and torn ligament in wrist. I saw him a total of 3 times. The amount of time he spent couldn't have totaled more than 4 mins. he didn't even examine my wrist on any of the follow ups. Just kept telling me to come back in a few weeks never telling me a prognosis.. left me completely in the dark and would walk out before I could ask any questions. Hands down worst doctor I ever been to. And I've been to a lot in my life. Canceled my next appointment with him
At Orlin & Cohen, we are committed to providing superior orthopedic care to every patient, every day. We, therefore, immediately alerted Dr. Rho to your concerns. Should you wish to speak further, please call Ashley, our Patient Relations Manager, at 516-536-2800.

Horrible experience, very impersonal. Saw me for less than 3 minutes. Did not advise anything, just did xray and ordered mri. after MRI report came, failed to call me after 3 messages. Not even, if I need to take anti-inflammatory meds or ice the injury. He is in the wrong business. He should not be in the caring business.
