  • The appointment scheduler I spoke to was very helpful, and pleasant. She found my husbands medical information right away so he didn't have to fill out forms again. He was scheduled for an appointment within a few days. The receptionist when he arrived for the appointment was also very helpful, and friendly. She made sure all his information was updated and correct. He was taken in to a consultation room to wait for the doctor.
    The appointment quickly went downhill from there. The doctor was extremely dismissive and brusque. He seemed like he was too busy to be bothered with my husband's problems. He did not listen to my husband's descriptions of the symptoms he was having, and interrupted him before he was finished describing them. The doctor actually stood up and walked out of the room while my husband was still trying to explain. Then a medical assistant came in to tell him that the doctor had referred him to another doctor in the practice, and that he was to be scheduled for a nerve conduction study. 
    We decided not to see the other doctor he had referred us to, based on his attitude and dismissive treatment. We sought treatment at another office. 
    We have had great treatment at this office before. The receptionists, x-ray technicians, and billing people are all very friendly and helpful. I would still consider going here for treatment. However, there are a lot of different physicians that work here and not all of them are caring or compassionate.

  • The first appointment with Dr. Jaivin was good. We talked about symptoms and he wanted me to have the NVT test to confirm that I had Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome. The NVT was negative and my nerves seemed fine. On the follow up appointment, Dr. Jaivin told me that he still thought I had Tarsal Tunnel and that 10% of those with it tested negative on the NVT. When I asked what my options were, he told me I should have surgery to correct it and that other than that, I could try physical therapy but that was about it.
    When I told my Rheumatologist about this, he scoffed and said there are several nerve pain medications and that this was a an option other than surgery. At least to try it first! He put me on Norontin and I immediately got a great deal of relief. What really bothers me here is not that Dr. Jaivin was not wrong about the possibility of Tarsal Tunnel, but that he is obviously a surgeon who wants to perform surgery. Even though he said outright that surgery and quot;may work and it may not.and quot; He did NOT choose to lay out the reality of all my options, which included well known nerve pain medications. Isn't this his job? These meds are not narcotics, btw. They are commonly prescribed long term for this condition, neuromas, plantar conditions.
    If it wasn't for some research and follow through on my part, I would have just had expensive surgery that and quot;mightand quot; have worked. It was clearly a lie by omission on Dr. Jaivin's part to withhold this information, sciatica, etc.
    So I guess if you know you want surgery or need a cast, go to this Doctor. If you want all the options, then you'll need a second opinion.
