Dr Oppenheim has been my doctor for 28 years now and I HIGHLY recommend him.
He immediately got to the root of my thyroiditis genetic Hashimoto’s... he don’t mess around, got me stable quickly when my Hashimoto’s went graves while in storm
Regardless of quality of care, it is not worth the stress of billing incompetence/apathy to errors.Out of 7 different blood tests over the last year, this office managed to get the diagnostic code incorrect on 7 of them. Mistakes happen. What they did in response to the error was:- delay- stonewall-transfer me to someone who wasn't responsible for rectifying the situation- say it wasn't their problem- say it was someone else's fault- say they understood the problem and would fix it, but then not fix it-say it was fixed but would take months to post, then resubmit the exact same paperwork with the same error-say they would let the outside lab know of the error so our bills wouldn't go to collects, but not do soFast forward more than 20 hours of my time invested in trying to diplomatically work to coordinate fixing this error. They finally fixed a part of their error, and apologized. But the story doesn't end there:8/19/2017- make the same error again on the next round of identical blood work- not recognize that it is the same error and the same resolution is necessary- delay- stonewall-transfer me to someone who wasn't responsible for rectifying the situation- say the insurance company is wrong-say it is a billing issue not a coding issue- promise to have someone call me back eventually[me writing this review, now]----- the future?1/9/18 New manager, Jenn fixed all but one of the errors from 8/19/2017.Final update:They couldn't figure out how to fix, or decided it wasn't worth fixing the final error, so they paid the bill. This is making it right. I am torn on whether to update my review to reflect this latest experience, or leave it as the average experience.
I found Dr. Oppenheim to be one of the best endocrinologists in our area. He takes the time to listen to his patient, acknowledges their concerns and answers questions without rushing. His approach was different than past endocrinologists and he has a smidge of humor there, if you pay attention.
Best medical discussion of my life. Dan Oppenheim listened carefully, reviewed the test results, explained his assessment, and discussed recommendation for treatment of hypothyroidism secondary to a partial thyroidectomy.
Very kind ,explained everything clearly. Happy to have gotten such a great doctor
This doctor is a hero to me. He listens and has helped me more than once. My most recent experience with this man might have saved my life!
Great place with caring people. Are there for all you needs and great to talk to.
This is a doctor who will consider you a hypochondriac if you have a healthy vocabulary when discussing your symptoms
great dr and staff is great
I was really shocked to see the negative reviews on this site about Dr. Oppenheim. I first saw him five years for a second opinion for an enlarged thyroid, which my first doctor had said was benign. Dr. Oppenheim did a needle biopsy in his office and discovered that it was actually cancer. I have seen him annually since then and have always found him to be an attentive listener, with lots of questions about how my health status. He always spent plenty of time with me I never felt rushed out of the office. Earlier this year, my test results indicated a possible return of my cancer, and after sending me to the surgeon for an ultrasound and needle biopsy, called me the next day to review the results. Dr. Oppenheim is certainly one of the most caring and knowledgeable doctors I have had the pleasure to be seen by. I would most certainly recommend him to anyone needing this type of care.
Having struggled with overwhelming fatigue and recurrent, inhibiting pain throughout my body for 7 months, my Primary Care Dr. sent me to Dr.Oppenheim. Because I did not present with obvious endocrine symptoms re. bloodwork, he told me there was nothing wrong with me but that I should talk to my Dr. about depression and medicating for that. Two days later I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease. I was thankful that another Dr. took me seriously, and now I can get the help I need. Dont take no as an answer when you KNOW something is wrong.
Adjusted thyroid med that my internist placed me on and pronounced me fine with lower dose by TSH level only, despite that hypothyroid symptoms had returned on the lower dose.
I happened to see this site when looking it up to send to a person in need of an Endocrinologist and was surprised to see an unhappy patient. I decided to write down my experience. I was sick for years and my life was practically destroyed by endocrinologists in Florida who wouldnt listen to me. I went to see Dr. Oppenheim and he not only listened but figured out is was one of twos medication I was on and took me off the one causing problems. Within 1 month I started feeling 50% better and within three monthes I felt better than I had felt in 15 years. I have my life back because this doctor listened to me.
This doctor is condescending and arrogant. Actually smirked when I asked for the numbers of my latest test results; does not seem interested in having knowledgeable patients. Office staff is wonderful, respectful and easily accessible.
