Ratings for Dr. Larry M Einbinder
I agree with other reviewers that Dr. Einbinder has a terrible bedside manner. The most recent time I saw him, he walked into the room and stared blankly at me for about 10-20 seconds. No "hello," "how are you," etc. He is very cold and abrupt. When I got testing, he didn't really explain much of what he was doing or why, just hurriedly jabbed a bunch of needles in me. I can't really speak to his knowledge since he hasn't shared much about what he found from my testing. He didn't offer any suggestions or advice. However, the first time I saw him, he did listen to my description of my symptoms patiently and order a bunch of tests. At least he seemed to take me seriously, which is more than I can say for other neurologists I've seen.
Dr. Einbinder has always been caring and I cannot understand the negative comments. When I went to him for a diagnosis, it took a week's worth of tests but he and his staff seemed very concerned that I was getting worse every day. When I had an MRI in the building next door, they asked him to come over to look at the results, and he immediately came over to review the diagnosis. The next day I was scheduled for chemotherapy at my local hospital. Whenever I called his office with a medical question, he returned my call (sometimes it was late in the evening after he had made his rounds). Also, a month or two after my diagnosis, his office called to let me know that he would be going on vacation for a week, and he wanted to know if I had any medical issues or questions that I wanted to talk to him about. He also let me know who his backup was and that I should call his backup with any questions or concerns while he was away. I'm doing very well now but I still see him every year. Yes, I don't think he shakes my hand at the beginning of my appts, but I'm one of those people who sees handshakes as a method of spreading germs so I don't want him to.
I would agree that Dr. Einbinder does not have a very empathetic bedside manner. He was to the point but I didn't find him to be rude about it. I can see how the reviews below could be accurate but having been to so many doctors in the past year plus, I didn't find him to be any more or less impatient than any of the others.
This man is a disgrace to the medical community. He walked in, sat down, and said "what do you expect be to do for you." It is unfortunate that "0" bedside manner is the lowest score that can be assigned to him. I am supposed to return for some tests next week; however, I am considering calling his office and telling them that I have no intention of returning for them if he can not treat his patients with a modical of respect. I told him that my balance was improving with continued physical therapy.....His response: "someone actually said YOU are getting better? Who was that. He has his freshman chemistry exam from U of Maryland taped to the wall.....he scored 175/175. I suspsect that is truly the last good thing he has done.
He is the worst doctor I have seen.I paid 525$ for 2 visits for my son.he didn't pay attention for patient's symptoms.During 1st visit he asked 2 questions and prescribed EEG,MRI,blood test.we wanted all of explenation during the second visit.he couldn'explain blood test result.he said this is the only simple MRI.That is all.no diagnose.no direction.blood test result wasn't normal.I never recommend.worst doctor ever.bad manner.is he doctor or monster.I have no idea.don'see this doctor.waste of money.
Sadly, I can only affirm the ratings of those who've already categorized Dr. Einbinder as wholly lacking in "bedside manner." I would go further and say he appears to lack even the "milk of human kindness." Because the initial consultation will be my first and last, I admittedly don't know very much about the extent of his professional knowledge and expertise, but nevertheless give him a low rating in this category based on his patent and painful (to me) discomfort with my physical disability. He clearly had no real understanding of my situation, and his manner communicated to that he had no real interest in changing that.
I waited at least 45 minutes for Dr. Einbinder to arrive in the exam room. He didn't smile or shake hands with me.. instead he went immediately to a chair, sat down and said.. "What do you want?" He then became angry when I didn't answer his questions fast enough. I had a severe headache and he was annoyed that I couldn't keep up with his questions. He acted angry that I was there from the minute he walked in the door. He ordered some tests then told me to come back in three weeks. I cancelled my follow-up appointment due to his behavior.
