New York, NY |
Dr Reish repaired my Labrum tear and fixed a botched surgey on my ACL. Today, my shoulder feels amazing and so does my kne. I was playing golf four months after my shoulder surgery and working out and playing golf 3 and a half months after my ACL revision. Dr. Reish's professionalism and knowledge really makes you feel at ease and comfortable with having surgery. I would definitely recommend him to anyone experiencing any type of shoulder or knee discomfort.

Dr. Reish repaired my meniscus today. Tonight I'm walking without a limp or hardly any pain! I read a 1 star review calling him "dismissive." How are we talking about the same man? The Truth: I met him and his assistant Susan twice. They're engaging, thorough, caring pros. Dr. Reish viewed my MRI film and explained it in detail. Didn't refer to the analysis. His staff couldn't be nicer or more helpful. Dr. Reich called tonight to check on me, answer questions and remind me my duties. THANK YOU!

Excellent surgeon. Extremely caring and took the time to go over everything with my son and I. I would recommend him to any family member.
Greenvale, NY |
Dr. Reish was dismissive & arrogant, as to my child's condition. He did not touch her during the exam but concluded there was nothing there. He reluctantly prescribed an MRI if you really want one. The MRI showed a conclusive diagnosis which was 100% aligned with my child's symptoms. He did not have the courage or decency to call me to tell me how to treat my child. After 5 days of begging for a call his PA did. My child ended up needing surgery w/ another fantastic orthopedic.
in Scarsdale, New York |
I had a complete rotary cuff and bicep tear in my dominant shoulder (left). I was in excruciating pain! Dr. Reish performed my surgery on September 14, 2015. Prior to the surgery, he explained the entire procedure and didn't sugarcoat what I was to expect following the surgery. I have had PT for many months and have regained all use of my arm! It wasn't as bad as he described and I'm pleasantly surprised that I have NO scars! He is an outstanding surgeon who has a great disposition too!
