Dr. Scott Rosenzweig, MD

Orthopedic Surgeon

Professional statement

I am a Board certified orthopaedic surgeon dedicated to providing exceptional orthopaedic care. I take a highly personal, individual approach to caring for my patients. In addition to caring for all of your general orthopaedic needs, my practice focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and injuries of the knee and shoulder. This includes sports injuries, arthroscopic surgery, minimally invasive techniques, ligament reconstruction and repair, and fracture care. I believe in meeting patients' individual needs through comprehensive evaluation and treatment designed to help them achieve an active, pain-free lifestyle. Many musculoskeletal conditions can be treated by non-surgical techniques. When surgery is required, I combine leading edge techniques with proven traditional methods to provide my patients with the best orthopaedic care possible.

Dr. Rosenzweig and his office are awesome. Kind, friendly and prompt! Justine at the front desk was particularly wonderful. I know I'm in good hands here. And unlike most orthopedics, I barely even had to wait! I was in and outand in a new cast in under 50 minutes. And that includes time to fill out new patient paperwork! Would highly recommend.

I was very pleased with my whole overall experience. He diagnosed me right away and sent me out for an MRI so we can assess what to do next!

i'm glad you're asking because it was the nicest doctor visit i've had!! the waiting room staff were gracious -- even the other patients were sweet. i'm guessing it 'trickles down' from the top. Dr. Rosenzweig is SUCH a nice person.i hadn't gone to him in years, but he helped me SOOO much many years ago. it's so refreshing to find such an honest doctor -- what a rarity!

Scott is very professional. He performed the McMurray Test on my left knee to determine the severity of my meniscus/MCL tear. And he answered all of my questions. I'll be following up soon with the results of my MRI.

I went during my lunch break and Dr. Rosenzweig was very accommodating and comforting. As someone who cannot do anything medical, I felt safe and well taken care of. He explained everything to me so I could understand and gave mesolutions to choose from. The receptionist was great and made me feel welcome. Thanks for the candy!

Justine was awesome, nicest reception I've had in a doctors office, and went above and beyond in an attempt to work with my insurance company. Dr. Rosenzweig was clear, concise, and did everything I hoped for going in... ordered the correcttests, went over the results so I understood completely and gave me my options and next steps. Recommended the natural route to recovery rather than going directly to surgery or something (which is my preference if possible). Overall a great experience.

It felt like I was in the care of an excellent doctor, who took the time to listen carefully but was also able to identify the actual issue at hand quickly. He has a new generation x-ray machine which causes farless radiation and allows to see pictures instantly, which I consider a great bonus given the damaging effects of x-rays on our body. All in all my appointment took only 15-20min.

Justine, who runs the office, is super sweet, personable, and accommodating!! Before my first visit, just talking to her over the phone was a very pleasant experience. I was in a car accident and have no health insurance and she explainedhow that would all play out very carefully. I chose Dr. Rosenzweig because of all the fantastic reviews I read about him, and I must agree with the majority. He is really nice, easy to talk to...is into surfing (talked to him about that for a bit)...explained my X-Rays that I'd brought in from my Dr. very well...great bedside manner. As soon as I finished filling out the new patient paperwork in the waiting room, I went in, and from there only waited maybe 10 minutes for him to finish explaining another patient's injury to him. He made recommendations (gave me options) as to how to treat my broken foot without being pushy. The whole process was swift and easy. Looking forward to seeing them again for my 3-week follow-up!! Oh! And about that no-insurance thing...VERY reasonable pricing for a consultation and a cast!!

Rushed me in/out, and when i came back with increasing pain, he sent me for tests and had his receptionist give me results. He refused to call me personally and answer questions. In the end, I needed far more care thanhe provided. Had I not gone to see another doctor, I would be in serious health trouble right now.

I would not recommend him, which is surprising to me because most of his reviews on here are good. I went to him about knee problems and left feeling very unsatisfied with his suggestions. All he said was to take someadvil and stay off it for a while. He did not explain to me at all his thought process, or give me any reason as to why I might be feeling pain. All in all, he did not seem very interested in helping me. Now, I am going to have to find another doctor to look at my knee, which is more time out of my day. Thanks for nothing, Dr. Rosenzweig.

doctor rosenzweig is knowledgeable, kind but no nonsense. he had excellent options for me and is taking a step down approach - benign treatment first (short term steroid tx for inflammation, physical therapy) then if no improvement, he recommendsan mri to see what is happening other than run of the mill (albiet excruciating) sciatica pain. i'd recommend him to friends.
