I don't think Dr. Traub has a clue as to what he is doing. My father went to see him for a bladder stone procedure and Dr. Traub has done nothing but fail him. First, he tried going in to see the stone, noticed it was a full urethra block but continued to pull at the stone causing inflammation. He was unsuccessful getting the stone, so instead of sending him to a more experienced hospital, he put a catheter in and made my dad wait 10 days before bringing him back in, claiming they had to wait that long for the lithotripsy machine. During this time my dad's catheter fell out because Dr. Traub not only put one in that was too small, but he did it incorrectly! Fast forward to the procedure, the stone comes out....Or does it? We're 3 weeks into this whole fiasco and my father is back in the hospital this week due to an infection at the site of the first catheter and because he was having urination problems after getting his second catheter removed. They now tell him they aren't sure if they got all of the stone out and "have to think about what to do next." Are you kidding me?? So now my poor father is laid up in St. Margaret's hospital yet again and has been dealing with all sorts of problems from a failed procedure due to Dr. Traub's countless mistakes. Now we have no idea what is going to happen and when he'll be recovered. DO NOT go see this guy.
Staff was rude. Had to wait 25 minutes to check out because a patient before me was having a personal conversation with the office staff while I waited to make my next appointment. Office was not new and looked dirty. PA did not follow policy and potentially exposed me to an infection. Office staff called to remind me of an upcoming appointment with your appointment is on such and such a date and please bring X amount of money (over $400.00) or the doctor won't do your procedure. They did not give me a time for the appointment and will not bill you. Follow up was given by an unlicensed office staff member.
Dr. Traub is totally incompetent, rude and disrespectful! Upon initial review of my problem (which I really didn't think was a big deal), he said he had no idea what was wrong or how to fix it. He told me he "thought" it would go away on it's own. He told me to come back in 6 months. That cost $40! 6 months later my condition was exactly the same. I called his office a week before my appointment and asked if I could speak with Dr. Traub because I wasn't interested in paying $40 again for him to tell me that he can't diagnose or resolve my problem and to come back AGAIN in 6 more months. I told the office manager (Jessica) that I would be happy to come in if he truly had some idea how to fix my problem but I wanted to talk to him first to confirm that he actually had some type of a plan. She refused to let me speak with him and was extremely rude and disrespectful. She just kept saying he's busy and she will try to have him call me tomorrow. She did that for 4 days! Finally, I got Dr. Traub on the phone and I asked him if he had any idea how to fix my problem and he said that he had no clue what to do, that he wasn't interested in seeing me again and that I should see another doctor! That is the epitome of horrible patient care! Dr. Traub and his staff demonstrated a total lack of respect and professionalism! If you look at other reviews on the internet, you will see that my sentiments about Dr. Traub and his staff are echoed. Another reviewer said the following: "Dr. Traub is only interested in "turning and burning" people". I couldn't agree more.
