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.
