I had chest wall and arm pain for years. I saw many Drs for this problem but Dr. Stefanides was the only one to relieve me of this pain. He was able to accomplish this with medication only. I am much more comfortable now. I could not be any happier!
in Kew Gardens Hills, NY |
I had an excellent experience with Dr. Stefanides who performed my knee surgery. My pain is all gone and I am back to all the activities I could not do prior to surgery. I recommended him to my wife as well.
in Whitestone, NY |
I had shoulder surgery performed by Dr. Stefanides, I play baseball and my shoulder had a instability which affected my playing, not to mention the pain as my shoulder popped in and out as I played. I was treated by the doctor and he knew right away what to do to help me with my pain. I had the surgery and within 2 months I was back playing ball. Physical therapy could not believe how fast I healed. It has been one year since the surgery and I am better than ever. Can't thank the Doc enough, he

He ia a very nice and professional Doctor. My daughter and I had a good experience with him. I recommend him to anyone who needs an orthopedic Doctor.

I saw dr Stefanides as a second opinion. I had seen another orthopedic surgeon prior to this visit who diagnosed me with rotator cuff tear and scheduled me for rotator cuff surgery. Dr Stefanides diagnosed me with frozen shoulder. I proceeded with surgery with Dr Stefanides and I am doing great! Thank God I chose this dr to perform my surgery.

I have been to a few orthopedic surgeon in the past and this Dr. really listens well.

Dr. Stefanides helped me walk without pain. He explained everything in simple language, more importantly he took the time to do so. He did my knee replacements, the pain, recovery was a lot better than I imagined. Great doctor.
in Whitestone, NY |
I came in on recommendation by my primary care physician. The front desk girls were amazing. The doctor diagnosed me with hip arthritis. He did not recommend surgery and I am doing much better! Thank you Dr.Stefanides
in Long Island City, NY |
He was completely unprofessional (he kept the door open during my evaluation and was on his phone the entire time!). I felt that any questions I had were dumb and he was too quick to end the entire 3 minute check up. Probably to get to his large waiting room.
