Dr. Sackheim has hands of pure gold. I have severe chronic back pains and had several surgeries also problems with my knees. Dr. Sackheim gave me my mobility back and helped to avoid yet another surgery. She does injections like no other doctor I have ever encountered. I call her the “needle whisperer”. In addition, she has a very upbeat and friendly personality and she puts you at ease. She explains all your options and comes up with the best treatment plan. Hands down on of the best doctors out there!

Rebecca B – Mar 12, 2020
I've been seeing Dr S for years; saw many NYU drs before her & she's been the most responsive, understanding dr. I had structural issues for yrs but scared to see a dr til I had trouble walking & keeping my job. All drs before told me to take meds for "anxiety which was causing my pain." I met a surgeon referred to me by a pain support group who saw I had serious issues in both hips (I knew anxiety wasn't pain), & convinced me to undergo major surgery. The hip labral tears & resulting arthritis cause pain in my back, right shoulder-going down into my knee & ankle. Surgery helped my gait but pain lingers. Dr S is the only professional to recognize my chronic pain issues & she's helped my knee completely, hip has improved, headaches 100% gone, & pain controlled. I followed her to pvt practice & my costs have actually gone down. I kept my job w/accomodations & I feel SAFE w/her. I sent my daughter to her who has TMJ issues. Trust/safety is key with a Dr and quality of life is paramount!

I have been dealing with chronic pain as a result of two herniated discs in my cervical spine. I had one failed surgery and it remains unclear if the second surgery will relieve my symptoms. Of the numerous doctors, surgeons, homeopaths, chiropractors, and pain management doctors I saw, Dr. Sackheim was the first physician who actually HEARD me. She listened, understood, and recommended several treatment options, and most importantly, was empathetic. I recommend her wholeheartedly!

Dr. Sackheim has become nothing more than a script writer. She was an excellent provider at NYU. When she opened her private practice, she agreed to accept my NYU copay. At my second visit, she raised the cost of each 15 minute visit from $45 to $250 because she "has to pay rent". To achieve financial success, she abandoned her real patients to accommodate 15 minute, $250 visits as a script writer.

A rare, truly outstanding physician. Unlike hospital physicians Dr.. Sackheim will not tolerate your pain. She will act immediately and aggressively to bring chronic migraine or other headache miseries under control. She is thoroughly attentive, responds to emails and phone calls and works harder than any doctor I've ever encountered. Just an all around wonderful doctor.

Dr. Sackheim is seriously a godsend to me. I have seen her for a few years now for assorted problems in my low back and neck; she also treats me for migraines. I have never met someone who cares so much about her patients and who goes above and beyond to help them. Every visit she takes the time to actually listen to what I’m saying and come up with options to minimize my pain and discomfort and get me back to my life. She is a dream come true as a doctor and as a person!

Dr. Sackheim was the first person to properly diagnose my torn shoulder after 3 years of misdiagnosis with another physician. She just listened to my symptoms and felt the area. After years of being made feel like I was making up my pain, Dr. Sackheim gave me hope that I could be functional again. Thank you!
