Verified Patient Reviews
He explained everything about diagnosis and treatment.
He did a thorough exam and provided options for treatment. He didn't pressure me at all. He was personable and has a god sense of humor. no heavy selling highly recommend
I have seen Dr. Rozmaryn numerous times for issues with my hands. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend him.
The one thing I didn't like it that they didn't and wouldn't download the forms I filled out beforehand on zocdoc
He maybe?a good doctor if he thinks your worth his time. I was sent to him to explore a bone abnormalitie and for a second opinion, my original doctor thought I should see a specialist and suggest this practice. Dr. Rozmaryn seemed very aloof and like he had more important things to be doing, never even felt the external lump on my leg. Didn't provide me with any real information other than he thought it was nothing looking at the X-ray.
He is an absolutely fantastic hand surgeon with a wonderful "bedside" manner. He takes the time to listen to you and to fully explain his diagnosis and the available treatment options. So, waiting a bit to see him is no problem because you know that when he gets to you he will take the time you and he need to deal with your problem. The last person in the world I would want to rush with me or any other patient just to stay on an arbitrary schedule is my doctor.
Appointment was 8.45 am, doctor came in about 10.15 am and almost immediately ram back out to attend to another patient. Later on, he was okay but not particularly good.
Doctor was very personable. Really nice to get a doctor who cares.
Unfortunate wait time today. But everyone was very nice and apologetic. Quick x-ray, Dr. Rozmaryn is very friendly. He spent a good amount of time explaining my injury and gave me some exercises to help. He listened to what I had to say, could empathize with my injury and I didn't feel like he was rushing me out the door.
very professional. explained diagnosis and treatment clearly and was easily understood.
It was great. Dr. Rozmaryn is great - he quickly was able to identify the issue, he expertly knew what to do about it, and he instilled within me a real confidence in his ability to help. He also demonstrated care for people by squeezing in extra urgent patients.
Took time to really listen to me and explained what my diagnosis was and the treatment plan as well.
Great doctor, very friendly.
The doc put together my finger when I thought it might be impossible. He went through a procedure and didn't actually have to graft skin to do what he did. THAT was much appreciated because skin graphs take weeks and they really stink. He was able to think about the procedure before we went into surgery and what was decided turned out to be the better procedure. So he's extremely conscientious and caring about what he does.
He is very friendly and funny, and put me at ease during my appointment and the following surgery.
This is the 2nd appt in a row that I've waited over 90 minutes to be seen.
Dr. Rozmaryn was gruff, not going out of his way to be courteous. He was annoyed that my two children were with me. He said, "Well we'll see how far we get with them in here." After they behaved perfectly he was praising them by the end of the appointment. Jerk. He told me that my hand pain was NOT arthritis and then offered a treatment plan that would be used for arthritis - long-acting non-steroidal oral medication, heat, etc. I asked him, "If this isn't arthritis, then why can't I just take regular ibuprofen as needed?" He said, "Oh that won't last as long. You should take "med X" because it lasts for 24 hours." What?? I said, "No thank you." As crusty/cranky/rude/non-listening/non-caring as this MD was, the physical therapy staff on the other side of the office went above and beyond. Including giving snacks and toys to my kiddos when they got tired of waiting patiently.
Dr. Rozmaryn is my "go to guy?" He is so good at what he does that I wouldn't consider going anywhere else!
I found Dr. Rozmaryn to be highly knowledgeable, friendly without being unctuous, and frank about the benefits and potential drawbacks of the surgery. Likewise, his X-Ray technician was friendly, courteous, and patient while explaining instructions. The relationship between the receptionist and Zocdoc needs some improvement. After spending several minutes filling out patient history forms on Zocdoc when making my appointment, I received a notice from Zocdoc saying the information would be transferred to Dr. Rozmaryn's office. When I got to the office, the receptionist informed me that she doesn't use Zocdoc for patient histories and I would need to fill out the forms again. Why waste patients' time filling out the same forms twice?
Love him! My twins each fractured their left wrist, one Saturday and one on Monday…. he amazingly took care of each of them so they can continue to run and play! Thank you so very much!
I have worked with him before. I trust him
I could not have asked for a better experience! The receptionists, nurse and doctor were wonderful! Dr. Rozmaryn was clear, specific and had an enjoyable bedside manner! I highly recommend him!!
Dr. Rozmaryn took the time to thoroughly explain my injury and wasted no time with beginning treatment. I think I would have had to schedule another appointment somewhere else to do everything he did in one appointment. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and caring. All the staff was friendly, attentive, and efficient. Looking forward to healing and my follow up appointment.
More than I expected. Very happy and satisfied
A knowledgeable doctor with a somewhat abrasive bedside manner.
wonderful front desk staff
Waiting time was a little long. The purpose of the appointment was to examine the extent of a sports injury. Including x-rays and time spent in the lobby, the appointment took close to two hours. Besides that, I am extremely happy with this office and will definitely come back in the future.
professional, remembered that I was past patient who he had not seen for a while
Other than the long wait time, I would recommend this doctor highly.
Dr. Rozmaryn was knowledgeable and very thorough. He had a very pleasant disposition, answered all of my questions and put my mind at ease.
He's excellent. Knows what he's doing and what he's talking about. And very personable.
I have been seeing Dr. Rozmaryn since I was a teenager for a variety of reasons. You will unfortunately have a long wait to see him, but his expertise is unparallelled and I would never see another doctor.
He had a great bedside manner. Made me feel comfortable and confident in him. I wouldn't hesitate to return to recommend him to others.
We never met Dr. Rozmaryn because of errors made by ZocDoc... I don't really know his bedside manner. I was not able to submit survey feedback about ZocDoc without filling in one of the choices listed for Dr. Rozmaryn. "Not applicable" was not a choice.
Dr. Rosemary's was wonderful. He was friendly and very personable. He explained everything I needed to know in laymen's terms and I felt completely informed of my situation when I left. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a hand/wrist specialist.
An excellent doctor, and a very efficient staff. I'm very glad i found this office and Dr. Rozmaryn in particular. I would recommend him very highly to anyone.
