I am Just a Patient- None of he information about this case is right. The lawsuit started against another doctor CONSIGLIO AND MY PCP for not revealing a report that was lost. I was angry because someone violated violated HIPPA and spoke to my boss causing me to be fired. Dr Casarona, the treating physician convinced my attorney that it was Dr Salgado, who treated me from 2002-2005 focussing on lesions on my brain which were caused by migraines, not MS, not HIV, wherever anyone got that was stupid .In 2008, Dr. Neuri, who diagnosed me with epilepsy and was 100 percent correct tried to prove he was wrong. In addition, Discovered during that Deposition that Dr. Casatona knew about the diagnosis and I left his care and tried to back out of the lawsuit. Dr. Casarona was unethical and used his sexual orientation to fight to become the head of the department. i WAS STUCK, SO I ORDERED MY ATTORNEY TO SUBPOENA DR. Casarona, who was calling and screaming at me, FINALLY THE CASE WAS DROPPED AND CASARONA WAS REMOVED. NYCornell and NYU proved I had epilepsy, and a rare neuroENDOCRINE DISORDER that crippled me, and no one at Methodist picked it up.

All the reviews under Dr. Casarona are bogus because is the patient, who incorrectly took legal action, against any doctor. I did not have epilepsy or any of those disorders, but multiple Sclerosis. To finally put an end to online tabloid journalism, the person who caused any legal action was a former Principal of a Catholic High School, Mr. Peter Doran, who stated my doctor, the administrator in NY Methodist talked to him and stated I was medically unfit and fired me.I realized too many people lied to me including Dr. Casarona, and dropped the Case in 2008. Now finally post what occurred

There are several reviews listed here by James S and Joseph J. and JustAPatient. All these are Falsified posts. I suggest you go to the following LINK:http://www.citysearch.com/profile/42313568/brooklyn_ny/casarona_joseph_c_md.html.
Some person was writing on the Internet and Insider Pages kept on posting it. I am the patient. No information listed under JustAPatient was correct. I experienced an eyeopening case,whereby there was falsified information, assumptions, and new guidelines set up for health care workers. Dr. Casarona caused a lawsuit and someone was posting information on the Internet ABOUT IT.I work for Community Health Status Indicators Project and came across this. The fact that the Gay City News was duped is even more absurd.

I have been one of Dr. Casarona's patients for over 16 years. It is certainly true that you are likely to wait a while in his office. He is worth waiting for. He has helped me manage my condition, which I have been dealing with for 30 years. He is caring, kind, honest and thorough. I have not seen him in a while, and I know that his advice has been responsible for the fact that I haven't needed him. I have been over-medicated by other doctors in the past and have nothing but respect for Dr. Casarona.

Since Insider Pages and City search will not let go of these reviews I might as well stop them. I dropped the lawsuit against NYM hospital. There was no VDRL and Why Gay City News has anything to do with this case is beyond me.Dr. Casarona never referred me to his administrator. I personally think the administrator did nothing wrong; however, other doctors including Dr. Casarona and his associates knew about the report, and for this reason I dropped the case. There was no discrimination. All of it is untrue, so keep on reporting this stupidity because all of this is lies.

I am Paul Schindler, the founding editor-in-chief of Gay City News, the LGBT newspaper and online newspaper in New York City. On August 25, 2010, I learned that somebody with the user name GayCityNews posted a derogatory comment regarding Dr. Joseph Casarona. That post was not made by Gay City News or GayCityNews [DOT] com. I do not recall having ever heard of Dr. Casarona prior to August 25, and certainly did not know him or know anything of his professional work. Thanks to prompt attention from CitySearch [DOT] com, the post was removed, but I wanted to clear up any lingering confusion with this note from me. I posted a "Yep, It's Good" rating because I had to choose one of the options. Neither I nor Gay City News nor GayCityNews [DOT] com is qualified to render any judgment on Dr. Casarona's work.

Everything written on this page has to do with one thing. I was this doctor's patient in 1997( once by default), 2002( he was going to do a complete workup, but because of a movement disorder he referred me to the administrator), and finally in 2005. In 2005, I transfered back to him because the doctor he referred to me was doing nothing, and I was becoming very, very sick. At the same time some doctor violated HIPPA, and informed my principal in a school that I was medically unfit to work. I don't know who it was.
Just prior to seeeing to Dr. Casarona, the previous doctor asked for two EEG Vidiotape monitorrings, but I lost so much time for work because I was so sick that I couldn't do it; however i was fired anyway in violation of the ADA, but I rreceived from the board help concerning medicl inssurance. I went to Dr. Casarona who also asked for the EEG videtape monitoring, and I agreed, but I wasn't receiving it. After about a year I became suspicious, and checked my medical database. After 2 months, I went to see if there was anything in my medical records. There was. There were two forms: a diagnosis of complex partial epilepsy and a VDRL stating I was reactive for syphyllis. I was terrifiedd, but didn't understand why the DOH never informed me about this, and I realized it was never reportted. These tests were from a hospitalization in 2002. I went to a doctor, and discovered I did not have syphyllis. I then gave the other report to Dr. Casarona who started to treat me with anti seizure medication. I had been diagnosed by a psychiatrist for about 15 years with panic. At no point in time was I ever informed that there was another medical explanation other than hyperthyroidism or heart problems, which I checked out. I was never informed about the possibility of epilepsy. My entire life I had episodes or attacks that not only included fear, but massive headaches, partial blindess, and a basic tremor. I was informed I was taking too much Xanax, but nothing was done even though I was concerned about it. Now I take only if needed or about 1mg 3 times a day compared to the 7-9mgs I was taking between 2002-2005.
The doctor, whom I had seen for 3 years prior to seeing Dr. Casaronain 2005, was an administrator that Dr, Casarona had referred me to in 2002. The administrator's associate, who diagnosed me with epilepsy studied in the best universities and did an extensive fellowhip at NYU Center for Epilepsy. The best, and most notable hospital for this disorder. The administrator and his associate had signed the form in 2002; however I was confused as to why this test of all tests went unnoticed until I found it by accident, so I asked for every record from every doctor from 2001-2005. When I saw my medical records, I was amazed. I was tested for all the wrong things without my knowledge and consent. I then called the Brooklyn Bar Association, and got a lawyer who spoke to Dr. Casrona. Dr. Casarona informed me that he would continue to treat me, but wanted nothing to do with the lawsuit.
In 2008, Dr. Casarona was under some sort of stress which I believed I was the cause. I was referred to another neurologist. After, I guess a twenty plus years in practice in NYM hospital, Dr. Casrona left about 3 months ago
For the pst 4 years I have had a lawsuit against this doctor, Dr. Cassarona's adminstrator. I brought it against him because of violations of civil rights, diagnosing me and not treating me, and I am amazed at NYMethodist Hospital. I and my entire family went there our entire lives. I never had a problem until this. In addition, I have discovered that only EEG is needed to diagnose epilepsy. The video monitoring is purely subjective and clinical.
i am privy to far more information, but this I know if it were not for Dr. Casarona's professional expertise and his treatment. I would be dead.

Pros: A good doctor

Cons: None

These blogs concerning Dr. Casarona are a mute point. First of this started because people were upset about his staff. When he saw this on the Internet, he fired his staff. As far as overbooking, his staff was responsible not him. With respect to the elderly woman, he gave her money to take a cab. Now no one needs to complain about him at Methodist. He has left his practice there, works in the City attached to a prestigious neurologiccal group, and his office closes at 8pm. Now all the bitching on this site can deal with the time punching( 5pm) show in the other offices of neurology who are more concerned about money instead of medical care. I am sure ,and I state this with total sarcasm that all of you who wined and complained will now have to deal with doctors who don't care. Have fun!

My in-laws had a very upsetting experience in Dr. Casarona's office on Monday, November 9, 2009. They were kept waiting for 3 hours (they are both in their mid 80's) and could not take it any longer. This doctor overbooks his appointments and doesn't care about how long his patients have to wait. My mom-in-law is feeble and cannot wait for hours upon hours in a doctors office. There is no consideration for the patient. She walked out and then had to wait outside for car service because of course she couldn't get Access a Ride and she ended up falling down before being able to make it inside the car. This is a disgusting way to treat older patients and I would not recommend this office to anyone!

First of all Butterfflies2008 you wrote three reviews of doctors in one day: Dr. Marino, Dr. Kahn, and Dr. Caserona. This is not the place to write a review of a doctor. When you do write a blog, please remember Dr. Khan is a cardiologist, not a cariologist. There are people who read this information, so please use English properly.
Dr. Caserona is one of maybe ten doctors who put NYM hospital on the map. His devotion and concern for patients is very well known. I have never known this physician to be arrogant at all .He is very professional, cares for each patient, and is extremely knowledgeable. In addition, you say there are a good number of neurologists out there. That is true, but unfortunately they work from 9-5, and care about cash. He doesn't.
As far as his staff, they are too busy helping patients to be nasty. I read your other review. Do you want to be pampered or helped? This bog lacks journalistic credibility.

Pros: Excellent Physician and staff

Please do not listen to Butterflies 2008-clearly mediocre service, a white glove support staff and a Joe Schmo doctor is what they crave. Dr. Casarona is a professional, and there is not an arrogant bone in that mans body. Theresa is a doll. Even if the staff gets a little pushy once and a while, who cares? You try handling angry patients in your face all day, complaining about appointments!!!!

Dr. Casarona is truly one of the most throrough and caring doctors I have ever seen. I came to his office not knowing what I would hear about my condition, after being dismissed by all others as "stressed." I came out of Dr. Casarona's office with a new lease on life, as he diagnosed and explained my condition to me. True, you will wait in his office, but trust me, it is worth the wait. Dr. Casarona spends time with his patients, diagnosing the entire person and not just a piece of the problem. You actually understand what is wrong with you and do not have to "Web MD" yourself when you go home. No question is too big or too small to ask. You will get personal service and 100% focused attention.

I am thankful for Dr. Joe and all his help. I would wait 4 hours to see him if I had to, because once you are seated accross from him, the hour that Dr. Casarona spends with you is worth every minute in the waiting room.

Cons: None that I can think of

Dr. Casarona's office may have a long wait time and you may spend most of your day there but in the end, it's all worth it! Don't let his staff get you mad. If they are rude, just be polite and wait until you see Dr. Casarona. Let him know how you are being treated and they will be spoken to! He is very thorough and doesn't play games. He's an all around good guy and will do his best to put your fears to rest.

Cons: Sometimes his staff can be a little rude.

Between the waiting time for an appointment, the waiting time in the office, the very nasty staff and the arrogance of the doctor himself...you will be very unhappy with Dr. Casarona!! His receptionists, Teresa and Jeanette, are the worst! Jeanette is so rude and bitchy. If you haven't been yelled at by her over the phone, you will be given this treatment while you are in the office! She can be heard on the phone being so incredibly nasty to each and every person she speaks to!!! The worst part is that Dr. Casarona knows about this and hears it himself but does absolutely nothing! With all of the Neurologists out there, you do not need to subject yourself to this treatment!! Have an emergency? You'll find yourself s**t out of luck! Calling the doctors emergency number will do nothing! He does not return calls! Please, do yourself a favor and go somewhere else!!!!!!!!
