A Dr too Involved with his own image to really listen to his patients!

He may be a wonderful surgeon but there is more to good care than a perfect incision. He needs to value his patients beyond the OR. I found him patronizing, insulting, divaish and self-involved. He made me feel bad about my pain as if it was a reflection on him!

2nd Opinion

Dr. Kastenbaum is cordial and attentive as is his PA. Lots of information is provided. I specifically was looking for the anterior approach so was directed to him by my health insurance carrier. It turned out he prefers the lateral aproach and told me the healing is approximately the same. I wanted the anterior approach nonetheless and because I qualify for this approach I did not meet with Dr. Kastenbaum again. However he was extremely helpful in alerting me to potential alergic reactions causing a general feeling of unwellness post surgery. He arranged an appointment with a dermatologist to ensure I would not have any concerns post surgery.

Be a part of the team

Dr. Kastenbaum did a total knee replacement for me. My recovery was exactly as long and as painful as I was told that it would be by him. He believes that the medical professionals and patient act as a team. This means that the patient has to do his part. My recovery and current condition, almost 2 years post-op, are amazingly gratifying and I have no limits on what I can do or pain in doing it. My once crooked leg is now straight and true.
