One Star

I found this doctor to have been a total waste of my time. It took 9 weeks to get an appointment. Finally, on the day of my appointment I was scheduled for 9:30 am and was told to arive at 9:15. I sat in the waiting room till 10:30 and finally saw him at about 11:15am. He didn't seem to have a clue as to who I was (my first appointment). He made some jokes that I didn't find funny in the least and were somewhat offensive. In his examination, he told me that my elbow nerve was non local (able to meve from its intended place). When I repeated what he said, he asked who had told me that before. I said no one else had told me that. He became confused and asked how I knew in the first place. I started to wonder if he was on drugs or had not slept in a long while. As the visit went on, it became clear that he had not even looked at my MRI test (which was required before taking my appointment. He was surprised that I could even have an MRI done since I had a pacemaker. I then had to tell him that John Hopkins Hospital (where his office is located) was one of only 3 locations in the entire USA that did such proceedures with pacemakers. He was surprised to learn of this fact. Finally, when I asked severak questions related to his diagnosis, he gave simplistic and what I thought were answers that I could have found on my own. He continued to make bad jokes about his not knowing much about blood pressure and told me that is what cardiologists and primary care docs were for. HE WAS A NEUROSURGEON and therefore above such lesser tasks. IN MY OPINION HE IS NOT ONLY A POOR DOCTOR, BUT ALSO A FAILURE AS A HUMAN BEING.

Amazing surgical skills and very compassionate

My husband had an extremely difficult and large tumor on a nerve that needed to be removed. Our local surgeons did not think they could get it out without paralizing his leg or even both legs. They thought my husband would be doomed to chronic pain and disability. Thanks to Dr. Belzberg he is pain free and has tremendous use of his leg. He was very caring and available to us through this whole terrifying process. We are very glad we travelled across the continent to see Dr. Belzberg.
