I ended up seeing Dr. Sackheim because I taught her children piano. She was so professional and I can honestly say I was feeling better by the next day after the trigger injections she gave me. I’m Glad I ended up seeing her and would highly recommend to anyone in the future.

My visit with Dr. Sackheim is always pleasant. I am glad for her new journey into private practice. I know NYU can’t even try to replace her with a doctor half as good because she’s the best! She understands our pain.

I have severe pelvic pain and pain with sex. Dr. Sackheim did a nerve block which helped me significantly. I can have sex with no pain now and I’m so thankful to Dr. Sackheim.

Dr. Sackheim is by far the best physician I have ever seen. Dr. Sackheim listens to her patients and treats them as individuals. She has a wonderful way of interacting both verbally and physically treating patients as if they were her family. I have referred several friends to this incredible physician.

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!

I am so lucky that I finally found a doctor to take care of my pain. Dr. Sackheim really cares and listens to what I was saying. Her injections were the first that actually provided relief and I can't wait to see her again.

I have been seeing Dr. Sackheim for about two years now and could not be luckier than to have her as my doctor. She is an excellent physician. She has come up with a care plan that has left me feeling so much better and reduced my pain significantly through a combination of procedures, injections and medication. Her office is run very smoothly and is always on time. Her staff is very supportive and helpful. Dr. Sackheim goes above and beyond for her patients, especially in an emergency.

Injury sustained during visit. Abysmal follow-up. Refusal to help with pain caused by in-offife procedure. She even denies it happened. Her office is a chaotic nightmare.

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!

She considers the best treatment at every appointment and leaves me satisfied after every visit despite her having to switching offices. Her staff is kind professional and always greets me with a smile.

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. 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!

Dr. Sackheim is one of the best doctors I have the pleasure of being treated by. She is caring, compassionate and understanding. She takes her time listening to what you have to say and goes over different options. When she does procedures she makes sure that you are not in pain and explains everything. I have recommended many people to her and they are all happy. Highly recommend Dr. Sackheim!

I've been seeing Dr. Sackheim now for well over a year, dealing with a botched shoulder surgery & it's aftermath of shoulder/neck pain, when i first saw her, she took the time, listened attentively & compassionately to my plight, then she proceeded treating my ailment using multiple approaches, till pain is effectively tackled, for a New york city doctor, she is one of a kind physician in her attitude, bedside manners & effectiveness of therapy, she never quit on me during my darkest time.
