Dr. Mark S. Myerson's Ratings
Very smart man, but not a very compassionate one. I think he has taken in too many patients and as a result, his practice has become factory-like. He definitely has a "God-complex". I had PTTD surgery with him 2.5 years ago and have had problems ever since. I have been on many follow-up appointments with him since the surgery and in the 4 minutes that he spends with me (I am not exaggerating... yes, 4 minutes) I can tell that he is not really listening to what I am conveying to him. He has already moved on. I do not care how good a doctor is... mistakes are made when you don't take the time to listen to the patient, spend more than 10 seconds looking at an MRI, and rush out of the room because there are 10 other patients waiting for their 4 minutes. On paper my surgery was probably labeled as "a success"... apparently if I can do one heal-raise I am successful. But with my everyday life, I don't do heal raises, and walking brings all sorts of aches and pains. During my last visit, I stopped him from walking out of the room to ask some of the many questions I had. I could tell he was getting aggravated with me and began to display attitude. That is unacceptable. When I leave his office, I have to Google to get my answers. That is not good. The doctor who was willing to perform surgery on me should also be willing to treat me when the surgery is done. Do not get me started on some of his office staff. I did give Dr. Myerson's punctuality 5 stars... I guess when you are only giving patients 4 minutes of your time, it is almost impossible to not be punctual!
Dr. Mark Myerson and his staff are so fantastic, words just can not describe. I would recommend Dr. Myerson to everyone I could. He performed reconstructive foot surgery on both of my 12 year old's feet and what a perfect surgery on them both! He is a fantastic, smart, courteous, talented, hard-working doctor who takes on students from all over the world because the want to learn from and train under such a wonderful surgeon. Thank you Dr. Myerson and your staff for being so wonderful!!
I had ankle replacement done 6 weeks ago. I just left my appointment with Dr Myerson and I am walking without my crutches or boot, and pain free. I am very lucky to find this talented physician and I will never forget how he helped me through this. Mercy hospital was terrific and Dr Myerson and his staff were terrific.....Thank you Dr Myerson for giving me my active life back !
Is Myerson a capable doctor? Undoubtedly. Does he treat each patient as an individual? No. But as long as you fall into the 80% bracket of people who will have no issues from his treatment, you'll be fine.
However, if there's a chance of you being in the 20% who may encounter surgical issues, you might want to reconsider.
Myerson is incredibly opinionated, telling you what he's going to do, not discussing your options WITH you. And he doesn't listen, even when told about previous medical issues. He's surgery happy too, because any snafu doesn't affect him in the slightest. When he performs surgery, what he is going to do is not decided until he actually operates. Because he only treats people at the 'normal' 80% level, he does not make allowances for such things as how differently people heal, or what different material/medications to use. Post op he'll see you at 2 and 6 weeks and after that you're left to your own devices until 12 weeks - which is way too long to wait if there are issues of which you're unaware.
If you can get him to explain procedures and risks or spend more than 8 minutes in a session with you, you'll be lucky. Is such a short amount of time with a doctor really sufficient for you to make surgery decisions which could affect your whole life?
Dr Myerson is amazing. I had 3 failed surgeries from 2006-2012; the last 2 were a failed hemi implant and a failed fusion of the MPJ of my right foot The hardware failed and screws were coming thru my foot. I am 54 and have been very active my whole life. I was in federal law enforcement for nearly 3 decades and worked out daily. In January, 2014 Doctor Myerson performed an intricate operation. He followed this up in April by implanting BMP to promote healing. I now have fused foot. He was upbeat throughout the ordeal. He is so very focused. When he saw the healing was going slow, he was very proactive and implemented the BMP onto sponges. Just an incredible doctor and person. I had almost given up. Now I am back living my life. Top shelf staff also.
It's great that so many people have had good surgical results with Dr. Myerson. But this was not the case with me. He performed a bunionectomy and foot reallignment that turned into a disaster. I was in excruciating pain within days after the surgery, but was told that this was to be expected and to wait until the scheduled post-op appointment. When my foot was unwrapped, it was evident that infection had set in. Dr. Myerson had me admitted to the hospital and then went on vacation. After several days of unmitigated pain, the culture showed a staph infection. However, the "foot fellow" left in charge of my case was not permitted to operate to clean out the infection (the antibiotic not only didn't work, it resulted in hives all over my body) because that might disturb the reconstruction work he had done. Finally, I insisted on surgery and Dr. Myerson relented. But by then it was too late. Osteomyelitis had set in and severely damaged the large toe bones. On the next two visits to Dr. Myerson, he ignored me, only addressing the foot fellows who followed him around. I was merely a specemin. After that, I changed foot doctors. Over the next two years, I underwent three corrective surgeries, requiring metal screws and plates and cadaver bone to save the big toe. The foot is misaligned and I have chronic pain.
My doctor in Phoenix said that if he were having the same surgery as me, Dr. Myerson in Baltimore is who he would see. So I flew to Baltimore. Day 1 pre-op appointment, Day 2 surgery, Day 3 painful recovery, Day 4 and 5 rehab, Day 6 fly home. All was great. They were punctual and communicative. The staff is AMAZING. Super caring and positive. Ankle replacement surgery is no joke, so I wanted the best. Mark Myerson did not disappoint. The staff top-to-bottom at Baltimore Mercy Hospital is awesome. My room was private, clean, on the 16th floor overlooking the whole city. Lovely. Recommend without hesitation.
When you want the Best in Foot and Ankle Reconstruction, Dr. Mark Myerson is the doctor you want. He is world renowned and lives up to his reputation. He is through, and explains everything to my wife and myself. I had other opinions and he was spot on with his diagnose. He replaced my Ankle and I am recovering as expected. I would recommend him to anyone who has foot and or ankle problems.
Dr. Myerson is a fantastic doctor! I have been suffering with Plantar Fasiciitis for over 3 and a half years. I went to 7 top doctors in NY and still no relief. Dr. Myerson knew the issue and performed a gastrocnemius recession, that cured my pain. He is a wonderful doctor, very caring and does only what's best for his patients. Going to him from NY was the best thing I ever did.
