Dr. Genin is very polite, caring, and patient.

Reviewed on Sep 16, 2020

I feel as though Dr. Genin does not want to deal with my shoulder issue. He has been my orthopedic doctor for many years and always seemed to care. Now I feel that he is more interested in the professional athletes that he cares for than the regular patient. He has been sending me to a spine doctor who feels that I need to be seeing an orthopedic doctor. Also, in his last notes regarding our video visit, he put information in there that was NOT discussed during the visit. I have been in pain for 6 months and Doctor Genin has been blowing me off. He is not the doctor that he used to be.

Dr. Genin is very professional, but is also very friendly. He has excellent people skills. He always tells me exactly what his plan is and explains it well

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.

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.

Reviewed on Oct 9, 2019

I will not be going back to the doctor or what ever he was Jayson did nothing for me he couldn't even answer my questions not happy at all !!!! so let's say u wasted my time at my appointment and money !!!
