Confirmation of the appointment was very confusing. First it was confirmed at 8:15 and 8:45 am. Then changed to 9:15 and 9:45 am due to Dr Genin arriving late the evening before, which was understandable BUT then another voicemail was received confirming the original time. I decided to come in early and take my chances to be on time even if I had to wait for Dr Genin. This appointment was very important to me.

Reviewed on Aug 16, 2021

Dr Genin answered the many questions I had and provided me with answers and decisions I need to make. I have "faith" in him and am sure he will do what he can. On the other hand, I could have been provided and a better fit of the brace that was offered. There were only two options and the young lady who brought it in never helped me, just sat and looked on while my husband and I worked to get it on. I know it isn't rocket science but a professional should have guided us through it to make sure it is the correct fit. Maybe that isn't part of her job??

Reviewed on Aug 16, 2021

Dr Genin and his staff were very professional. I felt fortunate to get an appointment as quickly as I did as he mentioned it usually takes 2-3 months to get an appointment with him.

This was a weird visit. First I scheduled the appt without a referral thinking that I needed an orthopedist. Apparently the dr doesn't do feet. This was out of his expertise. He tried to help but he basically came in and said that he tends to asks questions and not let patient speak (in so many words he said this). Which really set the tone for me to allow him to not listen to me (its the psychology of it). He was a nice guy just not the expert I was hoping for.
