Every time I needed to see Dr. Menkowitz, his staff gave me an appointment right away. They are curteous and informative. I live about an hour away. I could go to doctors closer to my home but I know that I will get the best care from Dr. Menkowitz. He spends time answering all my questions. I am sure he does the same with each and every patient he sees. He doesn't rush a person to surgery. His philosphy is to do everything to avoid surgery. That's why he's my doctor.

The waiting past your scheduled appoinment is ridiculous. After that wait you see the Doctor a couple minutes. He makes what seems to be off the cuff decisions based on very little information. Would not go back.

I had a injury to my shoulder in 2008. Went to see Dr. Menkowitz 3 times in the following year because shoulder was not healing. Had an MRI done at his direction, quality of images apparently not great, but report said torn tendon(s) and other damage could not be ruled out. He said not to worry about it, it would heal. He said this at 2 different follow up appointments!! Shoulder never healed, finally went to University of Pennsyvania in Philadelphia, had proper MRI, showed one full thickness and two partial thickness tears in shoulder. I am now scheduled for surgery to hopefully repair them. The time that passed between Dr. Menkowits misdiagnosis and the now scheduled surgery caused a build up of fatty tissue in the shoulder muscles, making the success of surgery less likely. To put a cherry on top of the whole thing, when you make an appointment you are told to call ahead to see how far behind he is running, and each time it was between 1 and 3 hours. Goes to show, go to larger more specialized practices in large City hospitals for major surgery concerns.

Everytime I left this office, I was in tears. Not only was the staff and doctor rude but I never got any of the answers I wanted. Average wait time was 2.5 hours. I had to take days off from my vacation time to come here. NOT WORTH IT
