Complications during surgery. Not a good experience. Did not have the experience for the surgery performed. Incomplete diagnosis and still need treatment to fix problems.

Reading the review below saddens me that someone can say such untrue words about a Dr. who saved my life. I have been a patient of Dr. Kagan's for 4 years and during a pre-op examination, he had me rushed to the emergency room because he believed I had a pulmonary embolis and he was right. It is unfortunate to hear any but praise when it comes to John Kagan, the man and the physician! If you love your family, you should send them to John Kagan. And yes, his wait is long, but that's what happens when you see the best- he is worth the wait!

Physician and friend

Dr. John Kagan has been a dream to my family and I. He has been working with our family for over 15 years and there is no other doctor that cares for my well-being as much as John. When you're a patient of his, you're a patient for life.

Mismanaged timeline

I had my first appt. And had to wait 2 hours to see Dr. Kalgan. Thought it was just a glitch in scheduling or that he had an emergency. Next appt. Was for 1:00 and didn't get to see his " PA " until 3:30!!! Finally saw Dr. At 4:00, after a three hour wait. No excuses why I had to wait for such an inordinate time. Would not go back because if he cannot manage his time with patients so that he can spend the appropriate length of time with them, then what does that say about any of his management skills?

The greatest doctor on this planet , I am not kidding

Unfortunately ,I have had several major surgeries due to an automobile , but before the accident Dr. Kagan gave me a new hip replacement, I was 43 at the time and I had legg calve perthes so my hip always gave me trouble from childhood. I currently live in Miami and I sure miss Dr. Kagan, his talent as a surgeon are only surpass by his kindness and humanity. He is a credit to his race, the human race. " God bless you sir.

One Star

Stay far, far away ! My father had hip surgery done by this doctor. The surgery was unsuccessful and my Dad suffered with pain for several months. He needed to have his hip redone. I encouraged him to see a different doctor, but my Dad trusted him. He received such poor post-op care that he developed a pressure sore on his lower leg under a brace that was prescribed 24 hours a day. He was diabetic and had little feeling in his lower legs. He developed a pressure sore in his lower leg and the brace was never removed to allow his lower leg to be checked; not even by this doctor at follow up appt's. The sore became infected and it got into his bone. Ultimately, the infection spread and the strong antibiotics they had to put him on shut down his kidneys. My Dad suffered at the end of his life. It was preventable. This doctor did not care enough to do thorough exams at his appointments. My Dad died on Christmas Day. Not one word from this doctor. If you love your family, go to someone else.

Good luck trying to contact this Doctor... They don't even answer the phone and you keep hearing their stupid message and then they connect you only to a machine to leave a message..

Four Stars

Dr. Kagen has perated on me twice. Once for my shoulder and once for my knee, I will be going back in for my hips soon. I love this guy and have had great results with both surgeries. DR. Kagen is very laid back and down to earth, I never feel rushed with him but the fact is he doesn't have much time to spend with you, I get it and accept this and do my best do get to the point and help him get to business. The downside is the office visits.....the wait in the main reception area has averaged an hour or two on all appointments, once I was there for three hours! The surgery center IS a production line but that is what it is and I have had great results. I like the guy, he's professional and kind with great bedside manner.....he's always busy but you wouldn't know it by his demeanor. I wouldn't want to want his hat or walk a mile in his shoes, because of this and the results I have received I forgive the wait.

Two Stars

technically good, but assembly line process, not open to improvements or changes that would affect his "system", perhaps a little arrogant (even for a surgeon), definitely not for everybody
