I had a total knee replacement in August. Dr. Popowitz, Northeast Orthopedics and the team at Good Samaritan Hospital were terrific. I am so happy I didn't wait any longer.
I'm having knee problems, probably due to my age and being overweight. I met with Dr. Popowitz and he spent a lot of time with me. He reviewed x-rays of my knees with me and explained in detail what was going on. My situation is not too serious, but it could worsen if I'm not careful! Very helpful and knowledgable doctor. Highly recommend.
My experience with dr Popowitz and his team, just absolutely brilliant they all made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, I would recommend to anyone, can’t say anything but fantastic,
A professionally run office where everyone seems to care. I was seen on time and was diagnosed immediately. I entered the office in incredible pain, thinking I was going to need surgery but Dr. Popowitz treated me and within a few days was much improved, with the need for surgery.
Knowledgeable! He knows his stuff.
I had a Patella tendon reattachment just a year ago with Dr. Popowitz. Dr. Popowitz was excellent through the entire process. Any questions I had were answered to my satisfaction. I'm a Personal Trainer and avid Cyclist so this was very important to recover as quickly and safely as possible. I highly recommend Dr. Popowitz
I met Dr. Popowitz right before being taken into surgery at Nyack Hospital. He showed me pictures of my xrays on his cell phone and told me what he was going to do to fix my seriously fractured femur. When I saw Dr Popowitz at his office 2weeks later he displayed the new xrays and told us he showed them to his colleagues as this was a teaching moment. My husband and I were very impressed with the pride he had in his work and felt I was in good hands. I returned 2weeks later and Dr Popowitz displayed the latest xrays, said they looked very good & also showed me signs the bone was healing. He was enthusiastic and gave me instructions that stuck to the original time line. I walked into the office last week(10) & he told me I was beyond the Bell Curve. I am extremely fortunate that Dr. Popowitz was the surgeon on call that day. Not another grandma pushing a walker...Not Yet!!
My son (9 years old) had a forearm fracture and Dr Popowitz treated him. I thank my doctor for recommending him. He fixed the hand without a surgery and my son recovered completely within 8 weeks. Dr Popowitz was very caring and an expert in this field.He answered all our questions with patience. He is an awesome doctor and I highly recommend him for any age group.
I've seen Dr. Popowitz twice already, once with a knee problem and again with a shoulder issue. He is very knowledgeable, kind and thorough. Helped me with both problems. Would definitely recommend him.
I ruptured my hamstring and was lucky to get an appointment with Dr. Popowitz the day after I requested it. He immediately recognized my issue and made arrangements for me to have an MRI within an hour. The next week he performed surgery. Throughout my recovery he has answered my questions thoroughly and efficiently. I believe his quick action made my recovery much easier and shorter. I highly recommend Dr. Popowitz.
So glad a friend recommended Dr. Popowitz to me. He was awesome. I thought I had a serious knew problem, but he explained what the problem was and how to fix it. He answered all my questions and calmed my fears. Great doctor, I highly recommend him.
My knee replacement was a game changer, as my quality of life improved 100%. Dr. Popowitz is a gifted surgeon with wonderful bedside manner. Instead of just answering my questions, we had a conversation allowing me clearly understand both the surgery and recovery process. Being mentally prepared going into this procedure was huge. This provided me with the confidence needed to work through the pain in order to regain my strength and mobility. As such, I was able to return to work in 6 weeks.
I have had many experiences with orthopedic surgeons and I have to say Dr. Popowitz is an excellent physician with pristine bedside manner and clinical acumen. He treated me for my shoulder pain when I was at the point that I could not even take off my shirt due to pain. He listened to my complaint was thorough in his exam and reviewed with me the diagnosis and possible treatments. He gave me an injection which gave me back the use of my arm. I highly recommend him!
He may be great for some. He was not for me. My last review was 1 star and has been revised because he took the time to call and discuss, debate my points. The office is clean. The scheduling is fine. The staff is lovely. His PA is spectacular. He may be terrific at what he does, I am not sure. I think a doctor needs to treat a patient and not a condition; and I don't think that he has that. Medicine is a business; and it is a humanity, a doctor as I see it should be clear on the difference.
Dr. Popowitz has always treated me and my son with excellent care. When I needed surgery for a major tear of my rotator cuff he was humble enough to get a shoulder specialist to assist him with the surgery and my experience has been so much better than many people I have spoken to. He is not quick to cut but offers other options first. We have seen him for many years for sports injuries and general injuries and have always received excellent care.
Within two minutes had accurately diagnosed my son with Lyme disease after a different orthopedic surgeon and PCP missed it entirely
I have seen Dr Popowitz over the past 8 years for various injuries, one of which requiring surgery. He thoroughly answered all my questions and explained my options. I will go back to him for any injury I have.
In July 2017, I had the bad luck of rupturing my Achilles’ tendon playing basketball.Fortunately, I had the good luck of finding my way to Dr Popowitz at Northeast Orthopedics.Now, exactly 4 month’s post surgery, I am able to begin doing plyometric PT exercises and nearly jog! Extremely happy with my recovery and I highly recommend Dr Popowitz.
Both my children have been seen on separate occasions by Dr. Popowitz. Both experiences have been made pleasant by Dr. Popowitz's professional and kind demeanor. The care we received was exceptional. I would highly recommend him if you need an orthopedist for adults or children.
I went in because I had been suffering with foot pain for months and after a few minutes of examining my foot he recognized the problem and thanks to his recommended treatment my foot pain went away after only a couple of weeks.
