Review of Dr. Greisberg

-Yonkers, NY |

Very knowledgeable doctor, but spends about 5 minutes with you. You feel rushed and the front office staff that check you in are as friendly as a wet mop. So not worth it

Review of Dr. Shah

- in NJ |

Dr. Shah performed my total knee replacement July 2018. I initially saw him for a second opinion after seeing another very experienced NYC surgeon. Dr. Shah's focus and level of engagement with me as a patient was exceptional. He also offered me the option of a personalized knee built to my personal CT scan specifications. Surgery was flawless and recovery rapid. I feel confidant of less pain and greater function than prior surgery. Choosing Dr. Shah was one of my best decisions ever.

Review of Dr. Shah

- in Park Ridge, NJ |

Dr Shah is the consummate listener and proved his diagnostic skills through patience and testing. I am fortunate to be free of pain and he solved a problem that other specialists either denied existed, mis diagnosed, or were not comfortable treating. RH

Review of Dr. Desai

- in New York, NY |

Dr. Desai was extremely thorough and understanding in my appointment regarding my nagging knee injury. She focused not just on the knee joint but on the entire body that affected the joint which was a refreshing and effective wholistic approach. I appreciate the professionalism of her office and her willingness to accommodate my difficult schedule.

Review of Dr. Desai

- in New York, NY |

Dr. Desai is amazing and I am so lucky to have found her. She was the third orthopedic surgeon I visited due to an unresolved shoulder injury from years of swimming. She was patient and knowledgeable and I appreciated all of the questions she asked, instead of immediately insisting on surgery. It has been 4 years since my initial visit and I have no more pain and full motion in my shoulder. I would trust her with any issue and am very grateful for her care.

Review of Dr. Desai


Dr. Desai has been great - responsive, personable, professional, smart. I have referred multiple patients to her and have only heard back excellent reviews. Her clinical judgement and ability to think outside the box has consistently provided patients new found hope on conditions they frustratedly were not making progress with. She certainly has my highest recommendation.

Review of Dr. Cooper

- in NY |

I had hip revision surgery by another doctor. It did not go well and I was in agony and he could not tell me what the problem was. I was sent to pain management, rheumatology, spine surgeon, another hip surgeon and after 6 months no one still had any idea of what my problem was. Dr. Cooper had me diagnosed within 20 minutes. He could not find anything on a convention X-ray angle and had an unusual angle taken. He spotted it in seconds a clear discontinuity fracture missed by everyone else.
