I have suffered with back pain for years, before coming into MaxWell. They were able figure out what my problem is immediately. They are very hands on. They were able to eliminate my pain in a few weeks, I can't believe I had suffered for so many years. I am now able to play tennis, and bowl again. MAxWell has changed my life and the staff ( Chris, Ceasar, Rob, Anna, Suzie, Yinka, Paula etc ) are geniuses. \nThe front desk staff is super friendly, I always leave there feeling great. I would not hesitate to refer them.\nAnd as for the comment about the office being noisy, they are always very clear about not being SPA.. this is not a tranquil place ... it is a place to get out of pain and feel better.\n\nAs far as the insurance... they work with PPO's and POS and explain your benefits completely.\nSo DO MORE for yourself. :)\n

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!

The front-desk staff is amazing and is able to answer all my questions and accommodate my hectic schedule.. They are the nicest group of women I have ever encountered.\nAnd the treating staff from the doctors to the therapists... are STELLAR.. this is a first rate group of professionals who CARE about each and every patient they walks through the door. I have told all my co-workers about them and how they have helped me and educated me about me pain.\nLOVE THEM !!!! MaxWell ROCKS

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.

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.

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.

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

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
