    in New York |
    I had a reoccurring neck pain from working for a long hours in front of the computer, so I went to see Dr. Mizhiritsky after few recommendations. Dr was very nice and professional. Examination was very through, and I felt very confident that the Dr. can help me. I think Dr. Mizhiritsky is very good back and neck specialist particular if you have chronic pains. I strongly recommend him.

    Dr Mizhritsky helped me so much. I was nervous because I had the most painful neck pain and numbness down my arm. It felt like electricity. He diagnosed me right away and explained everything. It's been two months and I am pain free. Thanks Dr Miz.
    Thank you for your review of Dr. Mizhiritsky! We take pride in always providing the highest level of care and hospitality to all of our patients.
