My first visit. Referred by my PCP for for shoulder pain that an MRI revealed to be inflammation of the rotator cuff and tendons. Dr. Routman gave me his approach to treating 72 year old shoulders (conservatively), explained the steps he would take to resolve the problem to bring the joint back to a good, functioning 72 year old shoulder,beginning with a cortisone injection guided to the perfect spot with that morning's Xray. Once the inflammation is brought under control and the tendons no longer swollen, I'll be seeing Dr Routman as needed or for periodic checkups.The combination of his knowledge, his ability to share it in a calming, constructive manner, and his genuine warmth made me a fan and satisfied patient.

Dr. Routman rebuilt my husbands shoulder. He recovered quickly and is 100% pain free. While my shoulder issues are not as bad, I knew that Doctor Routman was the doctor to see! My appointment was informative and efficient. He explained the issues as well as treatment options, and took the time to answer my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Routman!

My visit was very nice being that it was my first time. The front counter was very busy, need to be more attentive with the people who are coming in, however, they were very courteous. The doctor and his assistant were very prompt and nice. I was finally comfortable in a doctors office setting. The procedure given hurt, however, the assistant made me feel at ease and it was over in a matter of minutes. The check out staff was very nice as well. I would strongly recommend this office and would be glad to return for service.

Not the best visit... taken in 1/12 hours after my scheduled appt time. Though the Dr was rushed he listened and attended to my questions in a professional manner. He isn’t usually this late.. Chalking it up to a too busy morning. Still highly value his expertise..

Very efficient office. Didn't wait long. Came with all needed imaging. Was reviewed and first saw PA who examined me, a few minutes later doctor came in and stayed untill all our questions were answered. Felt very comfortable speaking with him. Office followed up as they said they would. Just have to decide what to do now.

I believe I got in as a last appointment of the day. It was approximately 45 minutes beyond my appointment time that I was seen. Examination by Dr Routman's PA, and then Dr Routman were pleasant and informative, but felt a bit rushed due to the late hour. As a seasonal resident who wasn't going to be in the area more than a month, I was generally satisfied. I believe if I needed to follow up with this practice were I staying in the area, I could have developed a helpful relationship.

I liked them very much. This was a first visit and as a medical malpractice lawyer I am a very sophisticated consumer of medicine so to speak period The office was very well organized, the people were extremely cheerful and Dr. Routman actually made me feel good, If you can believe that, and telling me what I thought was minor tendinitis was actually fractured condyle in my left elbow You could see his kindness and caring on his face Great guy and Obviously highly qualified

Dr Routman reviewed my MRI & findings before he came in and throughly explained what my conditions were. He took the time to explain throughly and answer all my questions. He offered a few treatment options and explained the details of each of them. He and all of his staff were friendly, kind and professional.

In the future, please give me at least 48 hours notice if you have not received the referral from my primary care physician. I almost lost my 8:05AM appt that I made 6 weeks ago. My primary closes his office at 4PM and I was unaware that you never received my referral until the day before my appt when you phoned me at 4:30PM. Lucky for me that you finally received the faxed referral at 8:30AM while I was in your office, waiting to be seen. Just when you were about to cancel and reschedule me, you received the referral and I was able to see Dr. Routman, as scheduled.
