performs unnecessary tests

Leaving aside being seen an hour after my appointed time, the doctor insisted on doing a wrist x-ray although i had provided one taken just a few days earlier by a reputable imaging facility. This seemed just a way to pad his bill In the end, he offered nothing to help my condition. After being treated by a good rhumatologist who recommended some physical therapy, the condition is now gone. This dr suggested neither

Was able to get an appointment for hand surgery after almost a month at Eatontown Office.

After I finally a month, I was told they have to change it because of an"emergency".Made another appointment, and was told to be there at 7 am. was stripped, and put in a bed till 10.00 am at which time I was rolled into the operating room. Never saw the doctor there or afterward, I asked where is the doctor,I was told he is doing another operation! Talk about bad bedside manner, this doctor has none!

One Star

If you're looking to get an education in music and rock guitar, in the midst of your surgery, visit Dr. Gabuzda. I asked for one simple thing before surgery and that was for Dr. Gabuzda to tell me when he began cutting (the anesthesia is so strong you can not feel anything). Not only did he not tell me when the surgery began, but he did no say anything to me during the entire time. Instead I heard an elongated version of a music artist, the guitar strong points of this artist, as well as guitar finetuning ,if you will ,of the song that was playing on his CD system. He never told me my hand would swell 4 times the size of normal when surgery was done nor other things to expect. He was very concerned however with the details of what his staff was doing that evening. So if you're looking for a lesson in music artists visit him, if not, I would highly recommend staying away from this doctor,

Mrs

Dr Gabuzda did surgery to correct a broken wrist a few years ago. I called the office because I need to have a cardiac MRI . I asked if they would check my file to see if there is metal. I was told that they shredded the records. I then asked if I could bring an x-Ray of my wrist that was given to me after the surgery so that he could look at it. The girl that answered the phone asked the doctor and he said if I brought it to the office he would look at it and someone would get back to me. That was 2 days ago. I have called and my husband has called. No one has returned our calls. It would probably take him less than a minute to read my x-Ray.
