I would like to say a big thank you to Caesar of Maxwell Medical - 16 East 40th st site for his total professionalism, his care for the patient he is working on, his patience, his hands on and he is always in such a good mood, always so upbeat plus he gives a rocking massage.\n\nWay to go Caesar - and I AM PAIN FREE....:)\n\nBernadette

Tried and Tested!

Been a patient here since June 2007. Not only have they fixed the problem I first started going to them for, they've helped keep me healthy ever since. Their breadth of services, and friendly staff, are second to none. Highly recommened!

Really helps

My boyfriend finally got me to go here to address various bangs and dents, and it really, really helps. I go in pain, and leave not in pain. I'm not one to like hanging out getting treatments like this, but if it improves the rest of the week, great.

Warning - No Privacy - 1 star

Went for neck pain - won't go back. Really a weird setup. There are NO WALLS! Just flimsy curtains between you and the next ""patient"". You can hear everything going on next to you. I would think this would be somehow not kosher when it comes to all the new privacy stuff all medical offices have to abide by. They obviously don't - or, unbelievably, no one has ever complained. You get more privacy in a spa!\nIck Ick Ick - I almost walked out BEFORE treatment but they had cleverly already taken my money.\nIf you are the least bit private don't go here.\n

Paula was great; one of the front desk persons was extremely loud/chatty

Okay, so let me just say that Paula's massage gets five stars--plus, it was free so that makes it even more wonderful. The location is also not bad and the office decor is pleasant. The DC that I met with was very nice as well. \n\nHowever, the hard wood floors in the waiting room don't absorb the noise: the constantly ringing/blaring (loud!) telephone, and there was a woman at the front desk that literally did not stop talking for the 20 minutes that I was there waiting. She was loud and chatted up everyone non stop (plus she was two feet away from me)! Not a good mix. I never get headaches and I had a doozy after 20 minutes in there. Also, this isn't their fault, but I am very sensitive to perfume and someone was wearing a lot of it, can't say whom it was though. All of the staffers were kind, even the chatterbox, but she just really annoyed me. I'm sure she's nice though and the other customers liked her. I think.

Back to an active lifestyle

After injuring my lumbar (lower back), and years of pain due to ""knots"" in the muscles of my romboids (shoulder blades), I finally found EXACTLY what I needed. I have been through several types of chiropractic care (Ghonstead in college for 8 months, Chiropractic BioPhysics in post military service medical treatment, Applied Kiniseology during the military and again before discovering the gem that is Maxwell Medical) and physical therapy, but never at the same location.\n\nAfter visiting several physical therapy, message therapy, and chiropractic locations, the conclusion to rehabilitate with Maxwell Medical WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE. Their front office is organized, efficient, and on top of their business. The reception is warm, welcoming, courteous, personal, and professional. They always confirm your appointment and always schedule around THE PATIENT'S availability. However most importantly, they are punctual.\n\nThe Massage therapy is so important to rehabilitation I would not be at the range of mobility or strength I am today if not for these professionals. Make no mistake about it: this is NOT a cushy-mushy massage. This is THERAPY. The therapists are there to strengthen your weaknesses (I've seen mostly shoulders, and lower back issues). All those ""ow! my army hurt when I lift it past 90 degrees"" or the ""My lower back is killing me!"" are a lot more serious than people think and the therapists not only educate you on whats going on inside your body, but also describe the procedures and specific area they are working on in your body..\n\nAfter several sessions of therapy, I was able to gradually work in ""the gym"" a small but very useful and resourceful room to strengthen weaknesses via small, but VERY important exercises that are prescribed by Chris. This is a great opportunity to strengthen the core of your body as well as to improve the pain for which you seek treatment, and further improve range of motion with excercises\n\nThe chiropractic care here is top-line. I personally go to the 40th street location by Bryant Park, although they have another location in the 50's as well. Dr. Ron Nathanson knowledge of not only the back, but of the entire body and it's inter-connectivity is unsurpassed by any chiropractor I have ever heard of from friends, or experienced first hand. He is professional, personable, and flexible. After several weeks of chiropractic care I requested he change the method of which he works on my back, and he was able to do so without so much as a flinch.\n\nAll this work is done under the care of several medical doctors (Doctors of Osteopathy?) who track the improvements in periodical reviews of my (and probably every) patient file.\n\nI can personally recommend:\nDr.'s: Dr. Unson, Dr. Gimplevich (sp),\nTherapsists who are STRONG for deep tissue manipulation: Caeser, Yingah, Joey, and Chris,\nChiropractor: Dr. Ron Nathanson\n\nI took the time to write this long review b/c I truly believe in their work. I not only eat more slow-food (natural stuff that is healthy vs. fast food), have a stronger core, am taking the appropriate amount of vitamins, have a larger range of motion, but most importantly -- I have been able to walk normally without pain again and resume an active lifestyle of snowboarding, kayaking, surfing, hiking, biking, swimming, etc.

Force the staff to check your insurance coverage

First thing this morning, I made an appointment for 1:30. I asked them twice to check my insurance and call after they did. They didn't call back, so I called again and they assured me that it would be fine.\n\nAfter I got there and filled out all my info they brought someone out to tell me that my insurance is not in network, it would cost me $75 instead of $10. I asked three times about this, they had five hours to find out and I ended up wasting an hour and a half of my work day.\n\nMy neck still hurts. Really inexcusable.

Good Listeners

The reason why I go to MaxWell Medical is because they really listen. I have been to other offices, and have been treated as just another patient with treatment plans consisting of just e-stim and ultrasound. But, at Maxwell Medical, they really listen to me and understand my needs both physical and emotional. They use more hands on care, which personalizes my treatment plan. As a result, I am actually feeling an improvement!

Outstanding Care, Wonderful Staff

I went to this place on the recommendation of one of my co-workers and I am more than happy with the care I receive there. I have been to other multi-specialty places in the city and Maxwell Medical is by far the best one I've been to. The office is very nice and has a soothing feel to it. Absolutely everyone who works there is friendly and genuine. The medical doctor I met with was very knowledgeable and spent plenty of time with me on my initial visit. The chiropractor took the time to review the x-rays I brought in (from another doctor - who never reviewed them with me) and he explained my problem in a way I would understand. I have nothing but good things to say about Maxwell Medical and will DEFINITELY continue to refer my friends and co-workers there.

Bait & Switch In Action Here

I was walking down 40th Street when I was given a flyer for a free 1/2 massage. On the flyer is does say that some restrictions apply. I called this location and was told there were 2 restrictions - one was that I had to be experiences pain-which I do have in my neck. \n\nBut its the second restriction that's really disgusting-if you don't have insurance that this office takes, they won't honor the free massage. And when I asked about it, the woman that answered the phone beat around the bush about it. Finally, after I asked for the 4th time, she said that they won't honor it if you don't have insurance that they use in their office. Never once did she ask me if I would be interested in making an appointment to come in and deal with my neck pain.\n\nSo for all of you that don't have insurance...don't bother with this place! Its just looking to scam your insurance companies!
