Patient Comments (9)
in Sag Harbor, NY |
I had herniated disc with fragmentation. In pain more often than not. Surgery went well. At 6 weeks into recovery I feel great! Unfortunately, I had a tattoo they needed to go through but amazingly they were able to put it back together nicely. It looks great, you can barely tell there is a scar there and all lines up perfectly. Highly recommended!!

Marc and Ira Chernoff are brothers that are so caring. They have a way of putting you at ease about your condition. Very knowledgeable. I would recommend them to anyone that needs spinal surgery.

Had spinal fusion and went well.

Dr Marc Chernoff is great. 25 years of back pain gone. It has been 5 years now. I was treated with care by all involved in the practice. from explaining test results to billing and appointments and most importantly the outcome of my procedure was great. I am thankful
in New York, NY |
Both Dr Marc and Dr Ira Chernoff helped me thru a rough time. They were both caring and very knowledgable in every aspect. Thru the whole process any time I had a problem or needed them all I had to do was call. They always got back to me. Truly if it wasn't for them I don't think I would be walking now. Office staff always very friendly and accommodating . I feel very lucky that when I was admitted into the hospital I got the Chernoff team as my surgeons!!
in Riverhead, NY |
Both doctors Marc And Ira are honest and upfront.They explain everything and also very good listeners. Had neck fusion and was up and about in a weeks time.
in Ronkonkoma, NY |
I had already seen a previous back doc when I realized I had herniated my disc. The treatment plan wasn't what I'd hoped for so I had sought out a new surgeon. I came across Dr. Chernoff and the experience with him and his brother was truly amazing. They are both the most kind and caring surgeons and will not lead you wrong. Marc Chernoff actually gave me multiple options before I made the decision to have the surgery I had. I healed exceptionally well and highly recommend them both.
in Bayport, NY |
Everyone in the office in Stony Brook is kind and compassionate. You are seen very quickly - there's no waiting in the office for someone to see you. I required surgery and I am 100% back to where I was before my herniated disc began to cause me great distress.
Ronkonkoma, NY |
This man is quite full of himself and has no bedside manner at all. He appeared angry at something and was not friendly or encouraging. I left feeling terrible, like my condition was hopeless. I am proactive with my health and had a new injury. He said I will need 3 surgery's and don't wait till you cannot walk Exact words Your quality of life is going to change considerably. My family was furious at how upset I was when I left his office and for days after. I would not recommend him at all.
