What People Say About Dr. Margaret Mei, MD

The worst doctor I have ever been to in my life! I should have known when I walked through the door, cash only and pay upfront. This lady knows nothing about healthcare. Terrible bedside manners, doesn't listen to her patients, eats food while she's treating you, very unprofessional. She stuck a needle in my arm and hit a main nerve and I was in severe pain for three days. Do yourself a favor and avoid this witch doctor, you'll feel much better for doing so.

Dr Mei is one of greatest rehab doc in NYC. I have had severe knee pain for many years. went to 4 major PT facilities (Cornell, HSS, and 2 private ones). I was still limping with bad pain. I was told that I need a knee replacement. I really don't want surgery. I was referred to her by my friends who was happily treated by Dr Mei. Dr Mei was very thorough, caring and knowledgeable. She amazingly made my knee pain 80% better in my 1st treatment. and now I can walk without a cane! very happy!!!!

Dr Mei is an amazing rehab doctor. I have been struggling with a herniated disc and when I've been in pain I have shown up impromptu and she has stayed late to treat me. I have a complicated condition with fused cervical vertebrae. Dr Mei is so compassionate and so knowledgeable about how to relieve my pain. My husband is a spine surgeon and and the fact that he esteems Dr Mei as one of the best doctors and sends me to her for treatment is quite a credible recommendation.
