I spent years seeing lots of doctors trying to get a diagnosis. Dr Petros diagnosed me within two weeks of my first visit. I've been under his treatment for approximately two years and have had great results. I believe anyone who is suffering from arthritis should give him a try. He listens and makes sure you understand your symptoms and that you are having a saying in the treatment plan. When he moved to NYU last November I didn't think twice before following him to the new location.

I love his new office in Brooklyn Heights (97 Amity). Brand new and simply beautiful. The staff is extremely professional and accommodating. The doctor greeted me with a smile and remembered my entire medical history from the old location. You can tell that NYU knows how to run a practice very efficiently.
