Ratings for Dr. Stanley Rosenblum
Still bear an ugly scar across my breast from the biopsy he performed. Was to have taken a sample from the lymph nodes under my arm. Not my breast. He left it sagging open poorly stitched and the nurse couldn't figure out why I was upset. Lied to my cousin as he took me to surgery.Did I mention that this was the third biopsy because the first two samples were crushed. Use at your peril
He was very knowledgeable and did a great job for what I needed. He was very clear on what he was doing and always asked if I had questions. After the surgery, was a bit different. I had concerns and drove hours just for my 2 minute check-ups. I never had much chance to ask any questions about what I was worried about. Mind you, everything turned out fine, and he would of addressed anything that he felt was an issue.
I have only good things to say about Dr. Rosenblum. He is all business and not there to be your friend but he takes his work seriously and his patients' welfare seriously. He has done so much for my 92 year old father when other doctors simply wrote him off as being too old to bother with. Our family will forever be grateful to him for being there when we needed both his expertise and his humanity.
Dr Rosenblum is a great surgeon and his office and staff are first rate and super helpful. I had the same experience as many at first as he is an 'all business' personality. However, as you get to know him, he lightens up and his advice is more accessible and he actually has a good sense of humour and persona. It seems his initial manner is a bit of a 'gameface' scenario. I am just post surgery, so my comments can't cover what happens down the road, but I felt I was properly advised of the risk/reward involved in the Ambulatory Phlebectomy Procedure. The 'damage' was already done by the trauma and varicosity that I had in my lower leg. Unfortunately, I have come to the conclusion that the cause of the entire varicosity problem is most likely hereditary, one of the causes suggested by Dr Rosenblum. He is one of the few surgeons who do this procedure in Southwestern Ontario so his waiting list is very long if it isn't 'medically required' (If your GP asks "Does it Hurt?", you say YES!)
I like a surgeon to be direct, knowledgeable and skilled. If that person also has a personality that meshes with mine, I consider that a bonus. Dr. Rosenblum is a professional, direct, knowledgeable, and skilled surgeon. He answered all of my questions patiently and succinctly. If you know yourself and need someone to hold your hand, bring a friend.
I'M SOOO DISAPPOINTED!!! This was such an awful experience. One year into the surgery now...and everything is worse. My leg looks mis-shaped and worse. He seems to know so much when you meet with him, and it seems like such a good idea - but i really wish I waited. My dream of walking around in a bathsuit is even farther away now. If anything, question him more at your visit. Ask him what happens if it goes wrong??? Because now all he is telling me is there is nothing I can do. The scars are still healing - not that bad really...but now I have hard spots...spots where I can't feel anything at all...really dark spots, and the veins that were coming up around it before are now everrrywhere. It looks way worse and I'm only at a year...I'm worried how bad this can get.
He is NOT helpful! I had issues with my surgery, and he just tried to get rid of me. I am now a year in and still waiting to see him again. I have hard spots in my leg, I cannot kneel down at all, and Im very sad that I did the surgery. The veins around the areas are WAAY worse.
Had my veins removed in May of 2009. When it comes to someone operating on my body, I could care less about bedside manner, as long as he knows what his is doing and is confident! I would not question his abilities and would go to him again if I had to, luckily I don't.
