Dr Hausman is very knowledgeable and courteous. The office staff were extremely kind and professional. My problem turned out not to be serious and very common hand problem. It took longer to fill out the paperwork than the actual visit, BUT, it was worth it to be seen by such a professional. What really made me happy I went on Zoc Doc on a Sunday and there was availability on a Monday! Wow! I am impressed.

Professional and thorough. Great doctor. He operated on my dad and fixed his problem, but told me that I have the choice whether to fix mine or not. He did not push me to operate even though he is a surgeon. After explaining the pros and cons, I chose to leave my problem alone.

IN-OUT- about 5 minutes spent, recommended a test, in my case Not very thorough, felt rushed. Received the test results back went back. He actually refused to explain the imagery or even bring any images up on the screen stating there were too many to look at. Recommended two types of surgery which were not explained in detail at all, again less than 5 minutes. Said he never uses the restrictive motion that was giving me the trouble which indeed was troubling since it was a basic everyday motion, hardly said goodbye and walked out. Trying to overlook the almost downright rude attitude I tried three times to schedule the lessor of the two possible types of surgery that were recommended, if you can believe he never even bothered to return any of my calls, simply AMAZING, ~ the visits I had were on par with each other so it was not the bad day to blame which of course sometime can happen. In short I will take my images for review to a nicer more professional person who hopefully will take the time to explain the hows, whats, whens and wheres of everything, never ever again ~ would not recommend, how could I? was hoping for better!

I was really disappointed; He did not believe my pain and question my honesty. I would recommend him because he gets results as for me I will have to go to someone else

I was not pleased. He spent less than 5 minutes with me. His diagnosis was incorrect, he looked at an X ray of my injury said his diagnosis was incorrect and referred me to a rheumatologist whom he said was in the Mount Sinai system but he had no idea where rheumatology was located. It turned out that the rheumatology department is located On the same floor !!!! Enough said !!!

Wonderful, warm and definitely knows his stuff! My son has a very rare condition - only 90 cases reported - and Dr. Hausman is right on top of it. We are relieved and thankful that we found Dr. Hausman. The nurses that we canvased from Mt. Sinai Hospital consider him to be one of the best hand surgeons. If anyone knows a doctor's ability and competence, it's the nurses! I would, without hesitation, recommend him to my family and friends.

Dr. Hausman's record speaks for itself. Further, I personally can attest to his superior abilities. I am a professional touring drummer, Dr. Hausman performed surgery on 3 of my fingers last year (I was quite apprehensive to take such a radical approach) and my dysfunctional hand returned to full health and my peers same I am playing better than I ever have. I unequivocally recommend Dr. Hausman. He is clearly one of the top hand surgeons in the world today.
