My son is a former patient of Dr. Standard at Sinai. He specializes in certain disorders and is not a "general" orthopedic surgeon. His office situation is beyond terrible in terms of how long you will wait (think in terms of 4-5 hours past your appointment time every single time you go there) and the consistent insensitivity and disrespect the staff, though not Dr Standard himself, displayed toward children and their families. As I said to a pp, unless you need care for one of the specific conditions in which Dr. Standard specializes, I would pick any of the other numerous good orthopedic practices in the area. I usually don't take the time to bother criticizing doctors publically, but I make an exception for Dr. Standard and the practice at Sinai.
