Review on 20-Mar-2019: Dr Baxi has been a thorough professional and a fantastic person to talk to and get advise from. He listens to you, his diagnosis is accurate and his treatment techniques are right on the money. I have had pain free steroid shots, fluid removals and other treatments from him and all were extremely helpful with minimum side effects, no pain and quick recovery time. Discussing various non-surgical knee procedures with him because I believe he will give the best advise in

I see Dr. Baxi at Advanced Orthopedics in Freehold since he came there in January of 2018. He replaced my regular pain specialist Dr. who moved to Florida. I am very impressed with his knowledge concerning back pain and how to treat my problem.

Bill in North Brunswick, NJ – Nov 12, 2017
I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Baxi for my husband to hopefully get some help for his chronic back pain after a lot of doctor research. Dr. Baxi's staff is very nice, especially Danielle, who took most of my husbands information, greeted us with a smile, was extremely thorough and just overall pleasant. Dr. Baxi was beyond thorough; he took his time, listened to my husbands issues, provided us with a thorough assessment based on his excellent knowledge, and a plan of action for next steps.

Edison, NJ – May 06, 2017
Dr. Baxi was very patient and thorough. He answered all of my questions in a clear and understandable manner. He explained everything he was doing throughout his examination. He was willing during the session to call another doctor that I had seen over 10 years ago to get important information. He helped me to think positively about my condition. He is without question one of the best and nicest doctors that I have been to.

Joan M. Stamile in Piscataway, NJ – Apr 15, 2016
Dr. Baxi looks pretty young, but he really knows what he is doing. I've had off and on back pain for years (probably from sitting in an office chair for 12 hours a day) and he really took his time during the visit to fully explain the issues, provide me with tips on how to fix them and ultimately rehab. I'm happy to say that I'm feeling a lot better without the need for surgery. Would recommend him to anyone.
