Never Again.

I was pre-warned about Dr. D'Agostini Jr. ...I came prepared. First visit went OK. He was All-Business, which is usually ok with me. I came in because I've been experiencing knee pain.First step, X-ray revealed some arthritis, which I was given a cortisone shot. I left the office with a prescription for an MRI. I was told to have the study if I still had pain, and return with a copy of the MRI. Well, the shot helped a little, but I still had pain so I had the MRI done to rule out torn meniscus. As far as I know, only an MRI can do that. I went back for a second visit with MRI in hand. Dr. came into the exam room and asked how is the pain level. I told him it felt a little better but I still had pain. He yelled "YOU just wasted $1,000! I never was spoken to by a Dr. like that. It felt like he slapped me in the face. Then he continued to berate me, and then threw a paper at me saying, if you can't understand what i'm saying, read this. I got up and left with tears in my eyes. New Jersey has many GREAT Doctors. There is no reason for anyone to put up with this arrogant man. I wonder if he has always been so rude, or does he feel that he's at the end of his career and doesn't need to worry about patient acquisition/retention.

Fantastic results. Back on feet in one day. Excellent recovery. Highly recommend. Answered all questions. Didn't mind questions about recalls and what brand implants used.

One Star

I brought my mother to see these two doctors on 3 separate occasions. They leave a lot to be desired in the area of bedside manner, compassion and explaining condition and procedures to patients. On our first appointment with Dr. Dagostini, he was training his daughter and using my time for her education. That's fine but I felt no appreciation for the fact that it was indeed by time and not his nor hers, and I would hope that his daughter becomes a more compassionate doctor than her father. On the second and definitely last appointment, the good Lord restrained me from becoming physical with this man because that is what a son is obligated to do when someone is maliciously and deliberately hurting his mother. We were his first appointment of the day and his demeanor was already sour and belligerent, even with the poor staff who have to endure this insufferable bully! If this man answers to someone at this practice, he should be reprimanded because we feel they did no service to my mother. She went there for treatment and got none, really. She got a cortisone shot in her hip, we came in for a follow up , and this man asks my mother if she wants a hip replacement, in a very confrontational manner. Maybe I'm wrong, but doesn't there need to be a lot more to get to such major surgery? He never bothered explaining options, procedure, nothing at all, just sent us on our way when she answered that no, she didn't. As far as Dr. Lowenstein, I felt from the start that he was in a bad mood from a phone call which he took in his office, and which we could overhear in the examination room him arguing with someone on the other end. The lack of professionalism in this office is ridiculous. I think the big problem with both these men is the following: my mother does not speak English and I am her interpreter. We sensed real hostility from both men because of this and a real discrimination based on this. I will be sharing our unfortunate experience with this office online.

Never again

This doctor is the most arrogant, rude individual I have ever met. He shows no compassion or caring for his patients, nor his staff. I would never return nor recommend this doctor to anyone, even my worst enemy. I am at a lose as to why his staff continue to work in such an environment.
