Would not go back....

In doing my research for a doctor who specialized in hypospadias conditions, Dr. Ginsburg came recommended. My son was only months old when I began the process with Dr. Ginsburg. My first thoughts, especially as a new parent, was the lack of compassion and bedside manners for my child as well as my husband and I. Unfortunately, after two surgeries, my son developed complications numerous times. While I don't think this was a direct cause by doctor Ginsburg, I do feel the lack of thoroughness post op and continued follow ups, especially if I expressed concerns, was extremely poor! Appointments were extremely difficult and wait times were on average of anywhere from 45 mins to an hour. The front desk staff were extremely rude and unprofessional, especially when you have a scheduled surgery and they call you and tell you, "sorry we double booked and need to reschedule your surgery date". In my opinion, when dealing with children there's a level of understanding and compassion that goes without saying. I would never recommend Dr. Ginsburg or his office to anyone! Thank God we found an exceptional doctor that not only excels in his craft but has superb bedside manners and was able to heal my son.

Amazing doctor

Dr. Ginsburg saved my life when I was 15 years old. I was critically ill with pancreatitis, and he took great care of me. 10+ years later I'm doing great. I couldn't recommend a better doctor.
