Ratings for Dr. Roy I. Davidovitch
I think dr. Davidovitch is an amazing doctor. My first meeting with him he explained all of my options for hip replacement and alternative options. He spent a great deal of time with me and was truly concerned about my nervousness and put.me at ease. I had the procedure and was walking within a week. I do not understand any of the negative comments about this man. None of the complaints are true. I recommended 2 more people to him after my surgery and they loved him as well. I whole heartedly recommend him to anyone considering hip replacement.
I am in my 70's and was admitted to Hospital for Joint Disease in NY City with a fractured hip. In the middle of the night a man in a baseball jacket stood at the foot of my bed and awakened me by saying, "You're going to have a limp for the rest of your life." I saw him twice for follow up and despite my pronounced limp and pain, he made no further suggestions. I consulted with two other orthopedic surgeons both of whom suggested surgery to repair my hip. I will be having surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery. Stay away from Davidovitch if you are a senior citizen!
I had complete hip replacement on 4/23/14 by Dr. R. Davidovitch using the anterior approach. I was walking without a cane by day 10. I am female, 66 years old and was in good physical shape before having my hip replaced due to bone on bone. It is 2 months now and I am doing absolutely amazing. I felt others should know about this doctor as I did my research looking for newer technology. They also use the Hana Table at NYU which adds to the successful outcome. Like every busy doctor the time spent with the doctor is quality time which is what counts. His PA Constance was very helpful. NYU Hospital was also very efficient with setting up and following through after surgery. I was also very apprehensive about having foreign parts in my body but, now I am not aware of there presence. I know everyone is different but, I hope this helps other patients in making a decision. I am very happy with the results.
Had to wait over 2 hours just to spend 5 minutes with Dr. Davidovitch. He was short with his answers and basically acted like he wanted to be somewhere else. I drove almost 2 hours to see him. I can honestly say after picking a surgeon from another NY Hospital that I wasted my time going to this doctor.
