Ratings for Dr. Ronald F. Feinberg
Throughout my 2.5 year journey with infertility, Dr. Feinberg was a source of hope and honesty. He personalized my treatment for my husband and I and the wonderful staff supported us every step of the way. From responding to my many questions to cheering me on amongst tears in an appointment, Dr. Feinberg was there every step of the way. I am forever thankful for his wonderful care.
I had a similar experience to some of the other reviewers. Although I am not actively trying to become pregnant, I wanted to find a way to manage my hormones and get my condition under control for when I was ready to start a family. From my appointments with my regular doctor I knew that weight loss can be more difficult for people with PCOS. Instead of giving me suggestions on what I could do or formulating a plan, he told me it's a case of "what comes first the chicken or the egg" and said I can't prove that PCOS is making me fat since being fat causes PCOS. Then he told me to get gastric bypass and said he wouldn't help me have a baby until I was down to a weight that I haven't been at since Jr. High. All without running a single test or looking at any medical records. Then he recommended his book. I was crying by the end and his staff felt so bad they slipped me a copy of the book for free. Thankfully, Dr. Tietjens in his office has been great, has a plan and is very empathetic!
Infertility is obviously a sensitive issue but I have to say that my experience with this practice has been incredible. Dr. Feinberg spends almost an hour at the initial consultation and explains EVERYTHING to you in as much detail as you want. The staff and PAs are all pleasant and extremely competent. We are going through the IVF process and have been very happy with the treatment we have received here. We will recommend him to any of our friends who need assistance with infertility.
I'm having a wonderful experience with this practise. Yes Dr. Feinberg is direct but honest. Some people just cant handle the truth. His staff has been wonderful. I met with the doctor twice and he never mentioned his book to me. I would highly recommend him.
Wonderful experience. Went for a second opinion, and was amazed at my options. Truthfulness is key in this field, and there may be certain things you don't want to hear, even if honest. Switched my care to RAD and achieved a pregnancy 6 months later.
I met with Dr. Feinberg and he took WAY more time than I thought he would take w/me.I worked w/1 Dr at RAD who was rushing me out from the time I stepped in the office, but not him. He laid everything out for me and went through the IVF process w/great detail. Timeliness is an office issue that they should address because people are working and going to appointments, but the quality of my initial appointment was great!
I was referred to Dr. Feinberg's clinic because they're supposed to specialize in PCOS and Insulin Resistance. He began my appointment 45 minutes late, didn't do any kind of exam or review my medical history. His tone was very condescending and dismissive. He routinely ignored what I was saying and seemed to be of the opinion that I had PCOS because I was a lazy fat pampered housewife which is absurd. He insisted that my only option for treatment was to lose weight and suggested I get gastric bypass surgery. He also mentioned his book and told me that PCOS isn't a real disease, it's a side effect if being fat. At one point he seemed to be sick of talking to me and turned to my husband to ask him what he thought of 'what your wife is doing'. He insisted that I simply needed to find the motivation to lose weight and said that I needed to see a shrink and be evaluated mentally. I went home in tears. Scare tactics and intimidation aren't what young women suffering from PCOS need!
