I have had continuous pain in my left hand for many years. I am now 50 and it had got to the point it was affecting my ability to work with my hands anymore. In 2 joints of my thumb there was no longer any cartilage. the joints were jagged and sharp points along with a considerable cyst on the lower joint. Upon meeting with Dr. Ubinas, he discussed the different options i had. I wanted him to try and repair it as much as possible. He immediately was ready for surgery whenever i was. from the time i came out of surgery to the time he was to remove the stitches i had no pain nor any swelling or drainage. Although the incision was a curved 2" it was a very fine incision and will not be that noticeable. I also have other fingers that will need to be worked on at a later date. I will not hesitate on selecting Dr. Ubinas to perform all of my surgeries in the future.
I am submitting this review under the urging of a friend. My last visit with Dr. Ubinas was nearly 10 years ago but was by far the worst medical experience of my life. The ER recommended Dr. Ubinas after my hand was broken in a car accident. I was 19 with insurance so I called to ensure they were in network. I was informed that they did not accept my insurance, HOWEVER once they discovered my mother was a physician they quickly stated they would extend a âphysicianâs courtesyâ and see me as in network. I was hesitant but being 19 and naive I accepted and scheduled an appointment. When I first met Dr. Ubinas, he bombarded me with pictures of cosmetic procedures he had performed, specifically breast augmentations. I was mildly offended but figured he's a surgeon and this is his "art". Yet, Iâm seeing him for my hand! Later, I scheduled surgery to repair the bones in my hand with pins that would later be removed. The surgery itself went smoothly. However, every time I went for follow ups I would wait over an hour to be seen. I understand heâs a specialist but the wait time was extreme. The day I was scheduled for the in-office pin removal procedure I waited 3 hours in the waiting room. By the time I was called back, I was extremely frustrated. I had taken off work and my dad had to wait with me since I couldnât drive after the procedure. Imagine my aggravation after Dr. Ubinas walks in and says heâd like to wait a couple more weeks to perform the procedure! I adamantly denied his request and demanded they be removed. He eventually acquiesced and the room was prepped. Initially, this was to be a routine procedure with minimal incisions roughly Â½ cm long to remove each pin. As Iâm positioned in the chair, Dr. Ubinas asks me, âNow, where are the pins?â Are you kidding me!? I was unconscious during their placement! How would I know!? Even after looking at my x-rays, he ended up reopening my entire hand (over 2 in) and guess whatâ¦ my bone had calcified OVER the pins. Can you imagine if Iâd waited another two weeks like he recommended? The procedure was incredibly painful with only local blocks offered to numb while Dr. Ubinas cut through my bone to remove the pins from my hand. Then I had the pleasure of sitting in rush hour traffic with no pain meds the entire way home. Now, hereâs the kickerâ¦ once his office starts submitting claims to my insurance, they decide to renege on their word and charge me out of network! Iâll admit, this last part was largely due to my own ignorance but it just added insult to injury. If I had known, I would have seen a doctor in my network! My whole experience was horrible. I hope my review spares others from making the same mistake I made. Find another specialist!
