Ratings for Dr. Mitchell N. Essig
He is a great doctor, very attentive and will do every possible test on you to determine what can possibly be wrong and will work on a solution. I had a another doctor who didn't do 1/2 the test he did on me. My problem was so easily fixed but becuase my previous doctors didnt to the right test it was never diagnosed. I'm very thankful to Dr. Essig
to start i know dr. essig on a personal basis. Dont listen to the negative feedback. With the amount of patients he has, he obviously will forget some of your info and meds. Chava the head secratary........is an angel. Listen, he was given the award for best OGBYM practicion in Manahaten several times. After speaking with him, i know how he treats his patients, he is concerned and very caring. However, when rude people enter his office and give him an attitude, he will be offended, and will treat you with as little respect as you give him.(Talking about the patients above some of whom I've met..They are rude impollite, and basically overall ****es. They dont deserve his treatment and medical advice, and I beieve the awards that he has won says enough about how well of a DR. he really is. His mentor, won that award for 7 years straight, until DR. Essig won it. Dont listen to any negative feed back, treat him with respect and he will do the same to you, trustmeIhaveseenpatientshehates
First, his head nurse, Chava, is AWFUL. She gave me the wrong diagnosis, and gave me the wrong dosage of IVF meds which made me terribly sick. I should have seent his as a huge red flag when Dr. Essig defended her. But in my desparation to become a mother, I was blinded by what seemed to be his caring. I WAS SO WRONG- in addition to the incompetence of his staff, he gave me a totally inappropriate protocl with way to many meds. I hyperstimulated month after month. He just kept canceling the cycle. Finally, he agreed to do the retrieval but any embryos would be frozen. After the retrieval, I suffered severe hyperstimulation. Despite knowing this, he did not monitor me once- not my blood, not my vitals, gave me nothing to help alleviate the symptoms, nothing at all, just left me to languish. I realized then that he was awful but all of my frozen embryos were at his lab- the lab he uses (aAdvanced Fertility), are also awful, sloppy, unrpofessional. Worst experience of my life.
Please look elsewhere for a doctor. Find one with a heart, who is not all about and how much he can make off of you. Essig gives no information and does not read your chart. He does not remember your history. I tried to tell him for 6 months that I had endometriosis and each time he told me the other doctors did not know what they were talking about. He sent me for test after test and he performed 4 IUI's all paid for in cash. I never got pregnant while going to Essig and based on the mistakes he made I believe that he intended it that way. Finally after 6 months he looked me in the eyes and said you know it looks like you may have endometriosis, let's do a laparoscopy to be certain. After that I stopped seeing Essig and his money hungry nurse. 5 months later I am now pregnant thanks to GOD and prayers. Do not give up ladies, but save yourself the money and heartache and go to another doctor.
Hava the nurse is rude, unprofessional, loud and needs to learn english! DR Essig He does nothing to comfort you when u r experiencing problems and most doc visits we felt like we were inconveniencing him by asking questions as he always was in a rush to leave the room! They place your specimen in tank in the basement amongst old furniture and abandoned office equipment and say its safe because it's locked although the ONE tank has wheels and can be easily rolled away as the basement is accessible by anyone! I felt so sorry for my wife who had to go through this experience; she felt more anxiety about the doctor appointment than the pregnancy. If you are considering this doctor I would look elsewhere for a place that understands that helping a woman to conceive goes beyond the actual process, it is about bedside manner and professionalism and creating a positive environment too.
Dr. barely remembered my hist.(kept referring to things not in my records)Ran about 1hr 20m late. but agree with other comments about staff being overly involved and discussing private info infront of other patients.DR.made me feel very concerned about my irreg.cycle-"could be anything" but pushed for an emeg. biopsy on the spot, along with pap,and blood work. I waited a month and still never heard from him. I called and left messages and still never got a response. When I did finally reach the office manager, instead of putting the dr. The head nurse got on and said "oh "well no news is good news "I asked for more information re: irreg cycle - she said oh your fine your good".If there was a prob we would have called" This is not what I call quality service.You do not make someone worry about cancer or "anything" do a emeg. proced on the spot and then do or say nothing. Nor do I want to deal with the nurse or office staff. My insur pays for a Dr.treatment and opinion not a sec or nurse
