Ratings for Dr. Earl Bogoch
Dr Bogoch has replaced both hips and one knee. The oldest, from 2002, is still in excellent condition - and so am I, because I can walk without pain. He has always been gentle and encouraging to me, and includes my husband in discussions. Explains things thoroughly. I highly recommend him.
His secretary is rude. Most people are nervous about a surgery and would like to know more details. There is no need to be abrupt and rude. Even though it is a teaching hospital it should be clear who is doing the surgery whether it is is him or he is just supervising the procedure. One does not mind it as much on an arthroscopic surgery but a full replacement is different.
I received confusing diagnoses from orthopedic surgeons as to how to follow up on my right hip replacement from 17 years ago where osteolysis had set in and was threatening to fracture my bone. One surgeon said I had to have a total hip revision replacing all the prostheses to do a proper job. Dr. Bogoch offered more minor intervention in the form of some bone grafting and replacing a worn, faulty liner with a new one. I took the 'easier' route posed by Dr. Bogoch, and I am so grateful that I did. He was always very honest in his gentle way with me, gradually overcoming my resistance to any operation at all. His secretary Ellen was very responsive. He did a great job, and I've never walked better. Thank you Dr. Bogoch.
I had my right hip completely replaced by this very skilled surgeon. Dr. Bogoch and his team did such a superb job on my hip, that after only 2 months of physio I could walk normally again. The limp and the excruciating pain in the joint were gone completely. More physio has helped rebuild muscles that were atrophied from immobility pre-op. In 4 months people seeing me walk who did not know my pre-op state thought that I was joking about having this type of surgery. This successful operation gave me my healthy self back. I am a relatively young patient, so I was also worried about the appearance of the scar. It is short and very discrete and I am very pleased when I look at it. I can't wait to go on a beach vacation. Thank you Dr. Bogoch and your team!
Very rude doctor. I drove quite a distance to see him, taking a day off work. I saw him because I was hoping he could scope my hip. I took all pertaining information for him to review including xrays, MRI's, fluoroscope and documents. I had broken my hip in Dec. 2006 and was in severe pain. I had gained a significant amount of weight since my accident. The only thing he cared about was my weight. He obviously gives different treatment to fat patients. He didn't bother looking at any of the stuff I brought for him to see. I was 22 or 23 when I saw him so there were years of tests showing how fast my hip was deteriorating. He didn't seem to get the point that I had a bad hip because I got hurt in a car accident, not that I had a bad hip because I was fat. Literally the only thing he focused on was my weight. It was degrading. He was rude, he interrupted me and wouldn't answer a single question. I went home in tears. This doctor is awful. Unless you're 90 lbs soaking wet stay away!
He was a bit old school in his manners towards me. But the surgery went very well. I have a problem with the main muscle being atrophied. He talked to me as if I didn't do any physio. Hmmm yes I did but my hip was very bad and muscles were a problem before surgery. My rheumatologist totally understood as his wife had same issue post surgery. I just feel better communication with the younger doctors I have.
Best and most kind surgeon. He replaced both my daughter's hips as a result of severe hip disease. Her constant torturing pain is gone and she's becoming a 13 year old child again after several years of debilitating pain. He is so kind and gentle to her. She loves him and her new hips are perfect!
