Amazing Surgeon and NYSI 1st class organization
Dr.Passias is incredible and the NYSI is a Top Notch First Class organization. I have been a patient of his and have referred my sister to him, who as well is a patient of his. He takes the time to explain everything and address all concerns and actually goes over the MRI with you to show you what’s going on. I’m not a doctor but I’m not dumb either, I wanted to know and see what’s going on before a surgery he took the time to show me and explain what was going on and what he thought was the best path to improve my quality of life. His staff if top notch as well everyone in the organization is on point and makes what is a stressful situation as easy as it can possibly be made. I highly recommend you at least consult with him before you have any spine surgery.

Dr. Passias is an outstanding doctor
Dr. Passias is a truly amazing doctor. He is kind and compassionate while being extremely knowledgeable and explains things in a very easy to understand manner. That combination of traits is very hard to come by and on top of the fact that he generally cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Passias for your orthopedic injuries.

Doctor is the best - office staff is the worst!
Dr. Passias is the best spine surgeon anyone can find in all aspects, i.e., competent, skilled, concerned, compassionate, etc. Office staff is rude, uncaring, ignores you unless you interrupt them when they are talking to each other, etc. The have a new HR Manager who will work on improving their front office skills - I do hope she is successful so the staff can bring themselves up to Dr. Passias' standards.

I have been under Dr. Passias care for 2 years. He is consistently, kind, compassionate, caring,patient and empathetic to me. I do not feel rushed during evaluations. He is a great spine expert and helps me greatly. My family and I love him and his great office and support staff. We recommend him for his excellent care before, during and post surgery. Thanks so much Dr. Passias. You are one of the best doctors. We need more like you.

Met with his assistant, she was very thorough about my issues, called my doctors for my files and took care of the paper work needed for my MRI. Will be meeting with Dr. Passias on the next appointment, based on my experience with his assistant, I would recommend this Doctor.

Dr. Passias was chosen by me for an extensive four disc fusion with lamenectomy C3-C7, after I had seen a dozen doctors before him. He is a knowledgeable, modern, and up to date spine specialist. I highly recommend you see for yourself.
