Dr. Pincus performed a very unique operation on our 12 year old sons brain. In my opinion he is an outstanding doctor and a very good with children. The procedure is called ETV and involves a very special set of skills that this doctor and his staff have mastered. See him at the shands hospital in Gainesville florida.
Dr Pincus has been seeing my daughter since she was a year old, she is now 13 and she still sees him for the fluid on her spinal cord. He has patience and is wonderful with children. I was never rushed out of his office, and even if I thought my questions were stupid he always answers them. We love Dr Pincus and will never change drs.
dr. pincus only spends about 5 minutes in a room with us after we've waited for more than an hour to see us.every time we visit he says the same thing"everything looks good"but how can u tell that everything is good just by looking.NO catscans,mri's,x-rays or nothing.He is very arrogant and he doesnt really care about his patients like he should. i thought that he waqs a good doctor at first but after the same routine and"everything looks good" statement i began to feel much different.
Dr. Pincus spent less than five minutes with my son before he diagnosed him and scheduled him for surgery. The diagnosis was wrong VERY WRONG. This could have cost my son his life but in any event would have caused him untold disruption and discomfort to his life. Pincus was arrogant and rude. Fortunately, following my gut and getting a second opinion, another surgeon correctly diagnosed my son and performed a different surgery that preserved my son's quality of life. The worse thought to me, in addition to the threat to my son's life because of his terrible judgment, was that if Pincus had performed the surgery, I would have never known the diagnosis was wrong, and my son's life was ruined.
