Dr. Massimi is a prime example of why HSS maintains their reputation as one of the leading hospitals in the world. Before discovering him I spent a full year suffering from upper back pain. Initially an orthopedic surgeon at ONS Greenwich diagnosed me with having a fractured transverse process and subsequent bone marrow edema and had me rest for a while before a month of PT. He ultimately ran out of ideas and I was back to the drawing board until I met with Dr. Massimi. It was immediately evident that he truly empathized with my dilemma and I was impressed with his assistant's note taking and laser focus with respect to ALL the details of my symptoms. Ultimately due to Dr. Massimi’s attention to detail, caliber of knowledge and deep network of surgeons to consult with as well as the superior scanning technology at HSS it only took him 3 weeks to figure out a benign tumor was the culprit. He swiftly referred me to the right surgeon and now the nightmare is finally over!

I can’t recommend Dr. Massimi more highly. In addition to being extremely knowledgeable, he is a kind and patient professional who answers all of a patient’s questions and tailors treatments to match the patient’s specific preferences.

I have been trying to resolve a hip problem for a year and had seen two other doctors. Dr. Massimi determined the problem and provided treatment which has significantly reduced my limping and associated pain.

Several people recommended Dr. Massimi and I followed up and made an appointment with him. He is very professional, very caring and very thorough. I was extremely impressed with the amount of time he spent with me. He totally got my situation and made great recommendations which I have already done. I look forward to seeing him again and will definitely recommend him to others looking for a top Physiatrist. He has a great team in Katherine Davydov and Carine Marescot.

At the time I found Dr. Massimi I was in a lot of pain and had trouble standing, sitting and basically unable to function. Dr. Massimi and his staff made time to arrange a visit quickly and treated me with a high level of professionalism and medical expertise. MRI's were read carefully and diagnosis was accurate. Follow up procedures were scheduled promptly and carried out with great care and attention. I was functioning to almost 100% withing days of the procedure. I would strongly recommend.

I have been struggling with lower back pain/ sciatic pain for over 5 years. I had begun to consult with surgeons. I give a shout out to Dr Sama @ HSS a surgeon who suggested I try getting an injection first and he highly recommended Dr. Massimi. A great recommendation it was! I am mostly pain free now; my experience with Dr. Massimi was outstanding: personable, kind and very knowledgeable. I began by wanting competent and got so much more. Go to him if you can. I can only say good things

Went for back problems and a review of my MRI. Dr. Massimi answered all my questions and took enough time to go through my MRI with me. This is the first time a doctor has taken the time to do this. The staff is also excellent-professional, courteous and welcoming. Highly recommended.

Dr. Massimi spent quality time with me regarding my sciatica pain. He was extremely informative in helping me understand why my pain may be sciatica vs anything else. His use of my X-rays and his exceptional interpersonal skills gave me confidence and security. Dr. Massimi and his staff exhibit exceptional patient/customer service. I highly recommend Dr. Massimi!
