So my son had his redo by Remzi in Oct. I personally think Remzi is far too busy. Follow-up care is not good. Communication is not good. I know technically he is the best, but he is far too busy and follow-up care is passed off to his team. His team in the hospital rushes through the rounds and doesn't listen to concerns. My son was in the hospital for 10 days and we saw Remzi twice. I never got the same warm and fuzzy feeling from him that everyone else praises about. Just my opinion, and of course you're looking for a good surgeon and not a friend, but the follow-up care is seriously not good and I live close in NJ. Maybe things were different when he was in Cleveland.
Infectious disease Dr Louie is great. Remzi's PA is referring us to a pain management Dr in NJ. Nurses are great but could also communicate better. The hospital rooms in the Kimmel Pavillion are the best- private room/bathroom, guest couch to sleep on, nice views, giant tv. Guests beware that parking is expensive as is food in NYC.
