The place is absolutely awful. I had an appointment with them and was kept waiting over 90 minutes. When I finally saw the doctor, he gave my hand a cursory look over, said the problem was with a tendon, I should start a course of medication, and come back. If it didn’t heal, then surgery. I spent less than 10 minutes with him. My follow up appointment was three weeks later. The receptionist advised coming earlier in the day so I wouldn’t wait as long. Well, the doctor starts his day at 11am. The earliest I could get was 1:15pm. I waited over an hour. Saw the doctor for about 5 minutes. I already knew before I saw him I would not be coming back, so it really didn’t matter that he suggested another follow up appointment. Between the two appointments, I waited more than 2.5 hours. Why didn’t I leave? Because the first thing they did was take my co-pay. I wouldn’t get it back if I left. Never, ever again going back.

While issues raised by KS and kk do raise concern, I for one feel fortunate to have found Garden State and have nothing but good things to say about the way I was treated both medically and personally. However, I had broken bones and diagnosis was, I assume, straightforward. Of note, as it is my nature, I ask a lot of questions, ask to see x-rays, and anything else I can think of at the time to try to comprehend what is going on with my medical treatment, both inside and outside of the sphere of the practitioner; I try not to let my health be a spectator sport and medical diagnosis is not always cut-and-dry. I believe this is the determining factor in the ultimate treatment of KS and kk. Additionally, to lump Hoboken doctors into any group or category other than a geographical one speaks for itself. In summary, I recommend Garden State Ortho based on my own experience.

Hi everyone – I realize this is an old thread, but I was shocked when I came upon this and read some of the negative comments. These guys are the BEST! We live in Bergen and used to go to “city doctors” all the time until we came across the doctors at Garden State Orthopaedics. Now we won’t go anywhere else. I trust them implicitly as they have never pushed surgery on any member of our family ( or friends who have been referred) and have always tried alternative methods first (physical therapy, injections, etc.) Other than having difficulty getting an appointment and sometimes waiting too long in the waiting room, the doctors at Garden State Orthopaedics are all top notch and very serious and caring. I’ll never go anywhere else, and that’s saying quite a lot.

I just wanted to post this as a follow up- I went and had a second MRI (because second opinion doctor stated the MRI that was done at Hoboken Open Air MRI was crap) and a new second opinion done by that highly recommended doctor in the city from post #1. Both the report on the MRI and the doctor concluded there was NO TEAR in my meniscus and no reason whatsoever for surgery. He stated that I needed to build my leg muscle up and my knee would feel fine. He showed me the difference in clarity between the two MRIs and said that the “tear” in the first MRI is clearly just a blip in poor film.

Interesting to say the least.

[quote comment=”90593″]really?? do you think world class doctors are living in/near Hoboken????!? is that the same logic you use to assign Jon Corzine’s choice of residence, or do we realize he’s just a fruitloop.[/quote]

Geez – pop a Xanax, man. If you need to think that all your healthcare providers are “world class” (whatever that means), then more power to you. But there are plenty of capable, worthwhile doctors in Hoboken, regardless of how much of a doctor snob you yourself are.
