We heard great things about Dr. Rosenman and our son was a patient of his practice. But several times we had to see a different doctor there and we weren't very pleased with the level of care. We should have listened to our gut feeling, but instead at our last visit, our two year old had a febrile seizure at the doctor's office. Dr. Rosenmann wasn't there and the other attending doctor was a completely incapable of handling the situation. She ran out and told the front desk to call 911. We had gone to the doctor's office because our son had a high fever and alerted the office when we got there, and then continued to wait in the office for over 40 minutes. When the doctor saw him, she instructed the nurse to give him some motrin, which he threw up because his fever was so high, at this time at 105, and then turns out they didn't have any ice in the office nor did they have any tylenol suppositories. Our son then went into a seizure. When the paramedics arrived, they asked the doctor, and the doctor said that they were not equipped with the supplies, and the paramedic just shook his head, and said that in all pediatrician's offices, it is a standard to carry tylenol suppositories.
We switched our son to a different pediatrician. It is definitely something I don't want some other parent to experience. It's really bordering on neglect. Dr. Rosenmann is a good doctor, but his practice as a whole is not recommended, especially since Dr. Rosenmann isn't there all the time, and you can't predict when you'll need to go to the doctor.
