Ratings for Dr. Keith B. Raskin
Dr. Raskin is hands down (sorry!) the best hand specialist in the city if not the country. Following a botched repair of a severed flexor digitorum superficialis/profundus tendon (the "critical zone") he successfully preformed a tenolysis procedure to release the tendons. He and his extraordinary PA, Ashley Madsen, make an exceptional team. Thanks to them both for giving me the use of my right hand again!!
After he was recommended to me by two different doctors, I had my first surgery with Dr. Raskin several years ago to treat trigger fingers on my left hand. The surgery went perfectly, and my recovery was quick and complete. Then, when my many years of martial arts and intense physical activities had clearly taken their toll, I returned to Dr. Raskin with severe basal thumb arthritis in both hands. Three years ago I had the left thumb done. One year ago I had the right thumb done - with trigger-finger surgery, as well. Treating such severe basal thumb arthritis requires joint-reconstruction surgery, an extremely complex and intricate surgery. Each time, Dr. Raskin did phenomenal work, including repairing surrounding tissues in the wrist that had been damaged by the arthritic joint. Following my physical therapy regimens, I was determined to regain all of my joint strength and functioning – which I did. And this would not have been possible without the technical precision and artistry of Dr. Raskin. I’ve returned to my full weight-training routines, including those for my wrists. And as an avid photographer, musician, and someone who enjoys a variety of crafts, I feel that Dr. Raskin essentially gave my life back to me. He loves his work, and he loves his patients, seeing each as a full human being. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t also mention his incredible PA, Ashely Madsen. Combining tremendous knowledge, empathy, and positivity, she’s always there, every step of the way. Day or night, if you have any concerns, she returns e-mails and calls, explaining everything fully and ensuring any necessary steps are taken. I cannot recommend Dr. Raskin and his team highly enough.
Dr. Keith B. Raskin is an extraordinary surgeon who performed complicated surgery on my right wrist and thumb five months ago. I had fallen on the golf course and was initially misdiagnosed by another orthopedist. I was in severe pain and never thought I would play golf again. Now five months later, I am back to playing. Unfortunately I cannot say that I have taken any stokes off my handicap but I have never played better. Most important, I am pain free and enjoying golf again. I unequivocally recommend Dr. Raskin and Ashley Madsen, PA. In addition, their bedside manner and their concern is exceptional. I am so pleased to say they have gotten me back into the game.
Dr. Raskin is a gifted surgeon who successfully performed complicated surgery on my wrist, which, among other things, involved the removal of a benign but problematic mass, located near my radial artery, and the repair of a tendon that was about to rupture. Upon meeting Dr. Raskin, I immediately felt comfortable with him. He clearly explained the problem with my wrist and it was clear to me that I wanted him to perform this surgery. He completely repaired all the problems in my wrist, and I've been healing very well with minimal pain. His PA, Ashley Madsen is excellent. I've been able to email her any questions I had and she competently and quickly provided the answers I needed. They are a great team. Dr. Raskin's Administrator and staff at the OR were all very helpful. I have felt very well cared for. I had my surgery 9 weeks ago, and I've been very impressed at how well I'm healing. My flexibility and range of motion are already close to normal and I'm currently building strength in my wrist/hand. I am very grateful that Dr. Raskin performed my wrist surgery and I'm well along the road to a full recovery. I am happy to recommend Dr. Raskin as a fine surgeon. I have full confidence in him.
Dr. Raskin and his PA, Ashley Madsen, are AMAZING. Excellent team, from his office to his surgery center. Dr. Raskin's skill is unmatched and Ashley's ability to explain and always be available for my questions is a rare thing to find in a surgeon's office. I recommened Dr. Raskin with all of my heart.
I hurt my wirst playing ice hockey and consulted 5 of the top hand surgeons in NYC. I selected Dr Raskin because of his attentive approach to the specific details of my injury, his experience with this particular surgery (SL tear) and his incredible balance of confidence and best bedside manner - which is rare in my experience with specialists. I should mention that I tried PT before the surgery and my physical therapist recommended Dr Raskin based on the surgical results he saw in his patients. Dr Raskin took time to comprehensively explain the injury, the surgery, the recovery and the outcome I could expect. The general prognosis for my injury was not good and put at risk my ability to play ice hockey, workout and play golf. I am thrilled to report that Dr Raskin did an exceptional surgical repair and I am back to all of my normal athletic activities in record time, with no pain and a range of motion that exceeded the expectation of every other surgeon I consulted. Additionally, his staff (his PA, Ashley in particular) delivered amazing care and a truly exceptional patient experience. Don't think twice. Dr Raskin and his staff are the best.
There is no other hand surgeon like Dr. Keith Raskin! He has given my son his life back. After a devastating injury causing severe neurologic damage, Dr. Raskin was able to operate and restore his function completely. Not only is Dr. Raskin a magnificent surgeon but he has a bedside manner to match. His PA, Ashley Madsen, has a heart of gold and was always there for us during this devastating time. Every call, email, question or concern, Ashley was always willing to listen and put us as ease, and not to mention she makes the best casts. I cannot express my gratitude enough. Dr. Raskin's entire office, from the front desk to his office manager, xray techs and surgical center.... i couldn't have asked for a better team of professionals to take care of my child. If you have the opportunity to go to Dr. Raskin, I implore you to do so. Don't gamble on your health.
Dr. Raskin and his team are excellent in all aspects. After wrist fracture/dislocation I instantly became a first-time appointment and next day surgery... I felt immediately taken care of very well and the surgery performed by Dr. Raskin just was with best possible outcome... fracture was complicated and bones were aligned perfectly afterwards, he is extremely skilled and experienced! Post surgery attention by him, his assistants and all his staff was amazing, professional, dedicated and personal. Recommendations for physical therapy were great, after 5 months my wrist is fully recovered, mobility back to normal and I was released and so very happy. I only can recommend!
Dr. Keith Raskin performed a basal joint arthroplasty procedure on my left hand in January 2015. I could barely hold or grip anything. The operation was so successful that I didn't even need physical therapy afterwards. After two months, I was using my hand normally with no pain or discomfort! Now a year later, I don't even think about it. This is a testament to the incredible job Dr. Raskin did. He changed my life. And I can't say enough about his assistant Ashley Madsen and his entire staff. George Limbach
