Dr. David Morgenthau's Ratings
Had an apointment at 12:40 pm left his office at 2 pm still had not been called in from waiting room reason I left is there was a patient who's apointment was 11:15 am that still had not been seen that day
My multiple experiences with this practitioner have always been unsatisfactory. Although MRI confirmed advanced DDD for my age, he failed to provide any support options on how I can manage this condition to improve my quality of life. For more than 4 years I've had to cope with chronic pain in the neck, back and arms, muscle weakness, tingling and numbness of arms and hands. His only recommendation was an insincere and off the cuff remark of 'try physiotherapy', and nothing else. Unfortunately, my previous physician left their practice in Canada, and I was referred (regrettably) to Dr. Morgenthau. He lacks interpersonal skills and comes across as cold and uncaring, and in general, I find him disingenuous.
As I read the previous comments, it's almost like there are two people. The Dr. Morgenthau I met was a 10 out 10. Extremely patient, courteous, very knowledgeable, very thorough, etc. The experience overall was the absolute best with practically no wait time. I would certainly recommend him.
It has taken me a year and a half to get up the courage to write and say that Dr. Morgenthau is the worst doctor I have ever seen. I waited over 2 hours to see him and was lucky to get 5 minutes of his time. When I first sat down for the initial consult I started to say something. he immediately cut me off and gruffly said that "he will ask the questions". He was closing his eyes and appeared to be falling asleep during our appt. I was referred to him because the thoracic area of my back had gone completely numb and was very painful. He pin pricked the area a couple of times and told me to go home and exercise. He did not order any further tests. I have since been to 2 amazing neurologists who ordered MRI's and have diagnosed me with Syringomyelia. I am now being followed very carefully and have been given a medication that is helping the pain. Dr. Morgenthau should never have dismissed ANY opportunity to help in the diagnosis and treatment of my unfortunate disease.
I had an appointment with dr. Morgenthau a couple years ago...Well, I found him completely indifferent to my health issue.(just a terrible migraine) Hi is abrupt, impolite and puts no effot into his job! Very disappointed of him !
Dr. Morganthau is a wonderful doctor, I too have had many mixed emotions in regards to him BUT this man saved my life. Literally the only doctor who took action and knew what my disease was. If it werent for him I would not be alive right now. He knows what he is doing and what he is talking about. I am glad to have him as a doctor. I have had all feeling towards him, but I thin it has to do with my emotions at the time not knowing if I wouyld walk again. Overall great man. (Just horrible waiting times)
I have been seeing Morgenthau since I was 16 - more than 12 years. I have felt mixed emotions towards him. Formost, he is not punctual having waited up to 3 hours beyond my appointment - in recent years this has improved (1 1/2 to 2 hours) but is still not good. While I have been seeing him for a long time, I fail to believe that he actually knows me. Hes thorough in that he makes recordings of our conversations and makes notes but every time I see him it feels like it's the first time we've met. Every year he explained to me that I should switch medications due to its effect on my health - we finally switched it this year. When speaking to Morgenthau I often feel belittled, I don't find him to be friendly however he is very knowledgable about my condition. When switching medications he did so with caution - easing me into the new prescription and out of the old. He made me aware of possible new side effects and conditions. As a prescriber he knows all about the drugs he doles out.
