Ratings for Dr. Haim Pinkas
Dr. Pinkas was persistent in locating the root of my ailment with 4 EUS/ERCP in 2 1/2 months. Professional, knowledgeable, and timely support staff made me (and my caregiver) comfortable each time. Now that the issue is resolved, I am convinced that Dr. Pinkas saved my life!
Very dismissive, detached, and brushes off patients after proceedures. Will not apologize for keeping patient waiting several hours for proceedure. Acts like he is doing you a regal favor by doing his job. I had complications from a proceedure he did and he suggested local treatment from referring doctor. Can only hope he receives the treatment he dishes out to others should he become ill.
Refused pain medication to patient after procedure. Treating patient for Pancreatitis (extremely painful chronic condition - intensity of pain equal to child birth). The patient, my father, was completely out of pain meds. He told this to Pinkas before his procedure yesterday and Pinkas brushed him off. In the room, Dad asked him again. Pinkas laughed and said, "oh yeah, more narcotics." Afterward, Dad was in recovery in pain, Pinkas refused medication and would not come out to speak to my mother. The nurse called the patient advocate and the surgeon who will be operating on my father. After waiting an hour and half Pinkas finally wrote a prescription - only AFTER the patient advocate was called and the surgeon told him my father needed it! We've also heard him making inappropriate and suggestive comments to nurses in the hall. Completely unprofessional.
