 |  Outstanding Orthopedic Surgeon  |  show details
by Lawrence Hakim, MD on Aug 6th, 2014

This response is written to rebut a BOGUS and False negative review on, dated 8/1, which was falsely and maliciously attributed to myself (entitled: ‘ask Dr. Hakim’) by a dishonest ‘anonymous’ source. Dr. Wael Barsoum is an OUTSTANDING orthopedic surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic. I have personally known Dr. Barsoum for years and have always found him to be extremely caring and professional. His surgical outcomes, bedside manner and patient/family responsiveness, both pre and post-surgery are excellent. Never trust an ‘anonymous’ posting on the internet. Signed: Lawrence Hakim, MD

My urine MD, Dr. Hakim told me to skip this guy and go somewhere else. He said this guy was a politician from Cleveland and not a good doctor for Florida. He was brought to Florida as a political appointment not as a Doctor. He is not easy to get contact after a surgery. BEWARE

 |  Excellent Surgeon, But!  |  show details
by Steven Reshel on May 3rd, 2014

Dr. Barsoum did an excellent job on my hip replacement, but trying follow up with him is very difficult. I get the impression that he spends more time lecturing than spending time following up with patients. Its very hard to make appointments with him, and the last appointment I had with him, I had to wait three (3) hours. Which is completely unacceptable. I was going to leave a note at leave, but would just have to make another appointment, which would be another six month wait, which I couldn't afford. I guess in summary I would have to say Dr. Barsoum is an excellent surgeon but has much to desired when it comes to follow through/up.
