Ratings for Dr. Scott I. Gingold
I would not recommend this Dr. to my worst enemy. He performed a spinal fusion on my L5 and did not see me after surgery for almost 24 hours. I these hours after surgery I experienced the worst pain in my right leg you could imagine. Nurses tried to reach him for 19 hours so they could give me something for pain but he never answered their calls. I now have permanent nerve damage to my right leg and foot and have to have spinal injections to control the pain. I cannot move my toes on my right foot and he expressed no remorse or help after the surgery. He has no bedside manners and his ego is sickening. He was sued 10 million dollars for a different botched surgery a few years ago.
2010 Dr. Gingold performed surgery on my neck for spinal stenosis. After months of going to therapy and feeling a lot of pain, a friend of the family recommended I see him. I made the evaluation appt. and scheduled for immediate surgery the next, because my spinal cord was affected by spinal fluid leakage. I am grateful today 2016 with minimal neck problems. Every situation has it's risks, and mine was successful...thank you Dr. Gingold.
Dr. Gingold was the greatest. Having been born with spinal deformaties and plauged by complication from it all my life, after changing to Dr. Gingold, I for the first time, understood exactly what the issues were. Scott explained everything from A to Z unlike countless other doctors that never did. I have seen doctors from one end of the state to the other and Dr. Gingold was by far the best. I have him to thank for getting my life back. I have been told by many doctors that I will eventually lose the ability to walk someday. Dr. Gingold did a surgery on my cervical spine and now I have the full use of both arms again and I have less pain then I have experienced in the last 15 years. Very sadly I received a letter from Dr. Gingold today that he has fallen ill and will be taking an extended leave of absence due to that medical illness. He will be greatly missed and now I have the job of starting the search for a new specialist all over again. God Bless you Dr. Scott get well.
I have had 3 neck surgeries since 2003, and Dr. Gingold was my surgeon. He has been very caring, honest, & compassionate, and has helped me more than I can say. His staff is great, especially his secretary Wendy. She is a very caring person, always has a smile. I would recommend Dr. Gingold highly.
I have had three back surgeries, one on the upper back and two on the lower back. Dr. Gingold was the surgeon recommended at first by my pcp has been very thorough, caring and honest. He helped me understand my options and did not talk down to me. I appreciated that he explained in great detail about the condition and recommendations. I recommend him highly.
Dr. Gingold is a one of a kind Dr. He has treated my husband over the last 8 yrs, he has performed 2 surgeries on my husbands neck and back, he is heartfelt and will do anything to educate the pt and family, make you at ease.Its very hard in todays world to have a doctor like him. My husbands last surg was 5 days before xmas, Dr Gingold made sure our family did not spend xmas in the hospital knowing we have 2 small children at home.Dr gingold also has a remarkable staff. When you call the Dr's office this bright enthusiastic woman named Wendy answers, she is awesome! Wendy has a heart of gold and is so attentive and sincere, she really goes above and beyond for her pts. We also really liked his Nurse Practioner who is as great as they come. My husband and I would advocate for Dr Gingold and his staff anyday.
