Patient reviews for Dr. Marc Chodos
Dr Chodos is great. The Medical Faculty Associate administrative staff and management not so much. Bad attitudes are the status quo. You can't get through to them on the phone. Glad Zocdoc has a process so I didn't have to deal with the staff until I got there. Once there, you are grunted at by surly staff. The message: don't talk, just sign in! Then you wait an interminable amount of time with NO information...don't ask any questions of the staff...they really don't want to talk to you! After about an hour or so, a totally unprofessional person mumbles your name (seemed annoyed that he couldn't pronounce it) and you move to the treatment room. But the wait is not over...the next adventure is the wait for an xray tech who again has no professional decorum (but was at least relatively pleasant). Finally, the one and only professional...the doc arrives. He is a quality doc stuck in a terrible system! Having to deal with Medical Faculty Associates is one of my least favorite things to do. Sad!
Clear explanation to my condition. Great personality. Only issue I faced was the waiting time. Overall, I’d go again
Dr Chodos was super friendly and very detailed when explaining my condition. The office and staff were very supportive when I had to leave to go to a meeting down the street and immediately brought me into the X-Ray room and gave me a prognosis very quickly. The new patient process will take a bit of time (20-30 min) because it is a large university hospital but that is more the hospital than the treatment facility, so show up at least 15-20 min early to get that stuff out of the way because it is a large office. Would highly recommend Dr Chodos and his staff!
Although the wait time was absurdly long, Dr. Chodos spent more time listening and discussing my injury than my previous orthopedic doctor. He explained treatment options clearly and wasn't bothered by my list of questions. He seemed genuinely concerned about my health and finding a way to get back to my fitness and activity goals. I'd recommend Dr. Chodos to anyone looking for orthopedic care.
He diagnosed a fracture urgent care missed and has X-Ray equipment on site. Very professional and put me in a walking boot that same appointment.
Dr. Chodos was great. Very, very knowledgeable, sympathetic to my issue, and had good, tangible suggestions on how to treat it that I could do myself. He definitely made me feel confident in his diagnosis. The long wait to be seen was clearly out of his control, but nonetheless he was very apologetic and offered a proactive solution.
Excellent doctor and personnel.
Fantastic - thorough, caring, and attentive.
Exactly what I expected. I left with a good plan.
