09/07/14 2 1 1 2 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.  Respond

23/01/13 5 5 5 5 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.

17/11/11 2 1 1 1 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.  See Responses

17/04/11 5 4 5 5 Dr. Morgenthau took the time to do a complete and thorough assessment of my mother's condition. He also ensured that measures were taken to find and place her in physiotherapy care.  Respond

07/11/10 3 2 4 5 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)  Respond

13/09/10 4 1 3 5 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.  Respond

06/06/10 5 5 5 5 Dr. Morgenthau is wonderful. Not only is he extremely knowledgable, but he is also a very warm person. He works very hard. His assessments are extremely thorough, and he ensures that you receive the best possible care. He is very patient - if you get to see him you're very lucky!  Respond

17/02/10 4 1 4 4 Dr. Morganthau was thorough in his exam. However I have to wait 1 hour and 45 minutes after my appointment time, and the waiting room completely filled up in that time. Bring something to read... you'll be there a while!  Respond

29/01/10 5 4 5 5 Recently he was my father's doctor in a hospital, diagnozed with stroke; we've spend around 4 hours all together and found him a good man, caring for the human side of the medical practise, very knoledgeble and patient to explain the case, open to sugestion and patience; wish him to work in a better hospital environment, sometimes from what he prescribed in the system, took too long to "implemented"; very good doctor, but the medical system sometimes lacking. a kind of person you would like to have it as a friend.  Respond

19/12/07 5 3 5 5 I disagree with the comment below. I found Dr. Morgenthau to be extremely helpful. He did a thorough exam, answered all of my questions and was very helpful when I had a number of problems with medications. He was the ONLY doctor that was able to figure out what my headaches were and who could make them go away! Also, as someone who has a fear of hospitals and medical procedures, he was very respectful of that and was gentle, yet honest, in his delivery of information about these procedures. He also checked in on me a number of times at the hospital. He's spectacular...and to say that he doesn't work hard? He sees clients beyond 8pm at times - he's very dedicated and very knowledgable.  Respond

13/08/07 2 4 1 2 My father was sent to Dr. Morgenthau because he suffered a stroke and seems to have dementia. Dr. Morgenthau has been completely indifferent to my father and to my family. He makes no attmept to answer our questions. You really have to ask your questions agressively and pin him down, or you simply do not get an answer. Dr. Morganthau puts no effort into his job, and he seems unaware of how frightening this illness is to my father and my family.  Respond
