He has the best bedside manners. His staff is very compassionte. Would recommend him anyday.
I went to Dr. Obedian for back pain after the epidurals were no longer helpful and the pain became so severe, I needed help getting out of bed. I do not know how he worked the magic he did, but I can bend over and touch my toes, and turn my waist left to right with not even a twinge. Dr. Obedian and his entire staff were also extremely respectful of my fears regarding the pain medication I would need to take afterwards (I am an addict in recovery for 9 years) and they were so supportive of me and my recovery. He also never hesitated to tell me how proud he was of me that I successfully got myself off of everything so quickly afterwards. Would I use him again or recommend him to a friend? Yes to both of those questions. I now have three friends receiving treatment from him, and after a car accident two weeks ago, I may need surgery on my shoulder... I would not allow ANYONE but him to touch me! As far as the wait to see him? All I can say is someone that brilliant at what they do... it is no wonder he is backed up and in demand. Me? I'll wait two hours if I need to if I know I am going to the best. And in my book... he is.
This man helped my father tremendously. Would never go anywhere else.
Personal problems asilde, and we all have them, Dr. Obedian is extremely smart and very good at what he does. Made me feel at ease and I was very happy with my treatment. Spends a good amount of time with the patient, which can't be said for most doctors these days. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Obedian is a great surgeon. Would never go anywhere else
This man is the BEST doctor out there. He may have some troubles going on in his personal life but if you want a doctor who is going to fix y our pain then he is the one to see. I have been going to him since 2001 and would never see anyone else.
NEW YORK (AP) - A respected New York spine surgeon is being ordered to pay the government almost $400,000 to settle charges he overbilled Medicare. Federal Justice Department officials said Wednesday that Richard S. Obedian inflated reimbursements by using incorrect billing codes Assistant Attorney General Stuart Delery says the Long Island orthopedic surgeon submitted the false claims throughout 2005. Obedian must pay $388,000. A graduate of Columbia University medical school, he was a fellow at New York's Hospital for Special Surgery before practicing on Long Island for about the past dozen years. Obedian was seeing patients Wednesday and not immediately available for comment.
Excellent care from an outstanding doc. Treated me with respect and courtesy.
He is compassionate, excellent bed side manner and excellent surgeon
I know first hand that he is an excellent surgeon. Staff is very courteous and helpful.
This office has absolutely no regard for a patients valuable time. The first time I waited nearly one hour in the lobby and thirty minutes in the exam room. On my 2nd. ( and now last!) visit it was one hour and fifty minutes in the lobby; I was taken to the exam room and ,when I asked how long, was told 4 more patients in back ahead of me!! I WALKED OUT!Whats the use of an appointment if no one even makes an effort to see you on time?Further: the staff is unapologetic and the Doctor has no "bedside manner" to speak of!
He is one of the best doctors I have seen.
Staff is very helpful. Thanks for helping when I was hurt.
He is a doctor that really cares about his patients. He gives you the time that you need and answers all your questions. He is just great at what he does!!
