The PT, Adam, spent a lot of time learning about my current conditions and range of motion. He then showed me, and allowed me to practice the exercises I would need to do. Dr. Genin listened to my history and concerns and seemed genuinely interested. Both gentlemen allowed me to be a part of the discussion of my health situation, rather than just talking at me. I left the appointment feeling that not only had I received good medical advice, but I had had been validated as an equal partner in my own care.

we had to change the appointment a few times due to Dr Genin's busy schedule.

Reviewed on Oct 15, 2019

Dr. Genin basically told me that he knew what i should do, despite the fact that I was making progress in my physical therapy. When asked for information about the procedure he was recommending, he said that was not necessary and that I would find on MY Chart, which I did not. He was also being shadowed by a resident and he spoke to her often as if I was not in the room. In conclusion, he recommended a procedure (and actually had his assistant call and schedule) without giving me any written information about the procedure, surgical risks...He also said that I should not return to my current physical therapist as I would be continuing there.
