Ratings for Dr. Reuben Hoppenstein
Excelent professional and person. He did the anterior diskectomy fusion to the vertebra 5/6 and 6/7. Since 1999 I never ever had pain or lost flexibility in my neck. This doctor is unique, he uses his own instrumental that he created. It was a pleasure to have my surgery with him.
Dr. Hoppenstein is very personable. After 5 previous back surgeries (from other doctors) and still in pain, Dr Hoppenstein was the only doctor (and I went to about 10 others) who would attempt to help me. He performed a 10 hour surgery on me and I was pain free.
Everyone who rates him describes him as especially arrogant and that is exactly the right word with which to describe him. In a typical appointment meeting, you are sure to hear about all of the things he supposedly invented (most obviously not so), how wonderful he is, and how pts write to him all the time thanking him for what they have done for them. He does not hesitate to show you a letter or two. He's a competent surgeon but it is not worth putting up with his obnoxious personality.
