Patient reviews for Dr. Michael Hausman
My meeting with Dr. Hausman was very helpful. He recognized what my problem was and has tried the most conservative approach toward treating it, although he explained that more treatment may be necessary in the future. Treatment by all personnel in the office was very professional.
Doctor came in with two others. No one introduced themselves. I turned to them and asked who they were. Unprofessional. As a patient I and you have a right to know who is coming into my exam room. I came in 15 mins early and patients who came 30 minutes late and as walk ins where seen before me, causing me to sit in waiting room for an hour, then wait another good 10-15 minutes before doctor came into room. Not a great experience.
I thought his treatment was right on target and explanation was easy to comprehend.
Just be sure to have a disk or flashdrive of your images with you if you don't already! The Dr was able to look at my phone for the emailed images from Urgent Care, but they had wanted to have larger images if possible.
Dr. Hausman was professional and efficient. I feel confident that he will be able to fix my problem (lack of supination due to scar tissue) via surgery.
Dr. Hausman was thorough in his evaluation of my condition. He answered all of my questions. He is experienced and genuinely cares.
Professional and knowledgeable. Would see this physician again.
The office seemed like a factory, much more focused on doctor's comfort not patient's. Doctor seemed knowledgeable, but showed lack of interest in my situation, and seemed dismissive. He also took a personal call during the visit and left the office to finish talking on the phone.
Very excellent efficient and prompt staff, professional demeanor and spacious comfortable offices at Mt. Sinai. Getting the MRI was a bit confusing because it’s in the SB lower level of the Mt. Sinai building and requires a separate appointment. Dr.Hausman is very knowledgeable, thorough and had a very nice selection of waterproof casts that he expertly wrapped on the wrist like a sculptor.
skilled and knew what was needed but very taciturn and did not or was not able to spend time answering all my questions.
Smart and obviously experienced doctor. However, was curt and provided zero candor. Felt like patient #99999
There was poor communication and I was rushed out of the office. I was told to get an MRI and we would "talk right after." The MRI was not available until 2 days later and it was obvious I was pushed out without even a goodbye or what to do in the meantime. The diagnosis would not even be available until 24 hours after the MRI, thus I would not have been seeing him for a diagnosis that day anyway. I felt rushed out, lied to, and the process how it would go forward following the consultation was not properly communicated to me.
The staff was very nice and courteous but I waited over 30 mins to see the doctor for a 5 minute visit. The doctor went into the exam room with two other medical professionals and no one including the doctor introduced themselves to me. Luckily what I had nothing major going on with me but the visit was extremely brief the only thing he did was pretty much read my x-rays.
well organized and efficient office, very polite and gracious assistants.
I was seen very promptly. Both Dr. Hausman and his support staff were professional, thorough and reassuring and explained my condition clearly. Luckily no follow up required. Altogether painless and satisfactory. My thanks to all.
Dr Housman is great and explains things very well He diagnosed my problem right away and we have a plan of action.
very knowledgeable . Made you feel very comfortable
He’s the consummate professional and an excellent surgeon
He is a good doctor, but I did not appreciate having to wait 50 minutes!
