Dr. Neil PathareRude And Uncooperative
My son broke both of his arms snowboarding over the holidays and was recommended to see Dr. Neil Pathare’s clinic.
Right from the beginning the doctor was unclear in his evaluation of his injuries and how to proceed.
He said we had some choices to make and when we made our choice he became rude and uncooperative because it wasn’t what HE thought we should do!
When we asked for a disc containing his X-rays to take to his surgeon at his college, they couldn’t make one because it was broken.
Really? The doctor would tell us one thing and then someone else from his office would tell us something else!
As if the injury and circumstances aren’t bad enough, I never felt they were on our team to make him well.
When we did get to the new surgeon’s office, he said that the way the bandages were wrapped wasn’t optimal for healing, and his arms had to be REBROKEN again and plates and screws put in his arms.
I’m sure they are very nice people, but I wouldn’t go back there again.

Everyone in his office is kind and friendly,
Dr. Pathare totally rocks! I broke my ankle and I was scared- but Dr. Pathare immediately put my mind at ease. Not only his professionalism but his calm bedside manner is totally awesome. Everyone in his office is kind and friendly,
which is what you need before and after you get a metal plate and 7 screws in your ankle! I always felt like I knew what was going on and what the next steps were to my treatment and recovery. I recommend Dr. Pathare whole-heartedly, he is excellent at what he does- fixing broken bones and providing kind and compassionate care.
He was able to repair my meniscus.
I injured myself indoor rock climbing while performing a heel hook maneuver. Initially, I couldn’t tell how severe the injury was so I limped around for several days. When I realized my knee wasn’t getting any better I decided to consult an orthopedic surgeon.
I’m super-duper grateful that I chanced upon Dr. Pathare. He was able to recognize the possibility of a serious injury and had me undergo an MRI. The MRI showed that I had a large bucket handle tear on my left medial meniscus.
He immediately put me on crutches to preserve my meniscus and scheduled me to undergo surgery the following week. The operation went smoothly and I didn’t have any complications. He was able to repair my meniscus.
Dr. Parhare's behavior during my visits was flippant.
Dr. Parhare’s behavior during my visits was flippant. His disregard for my symptoms and situation was obvious. The procedure he used to (incorrectly) diagnose my injury greatly exacerbated my condition.
