Graduating with honors from the Swedish Institute in NYC and becoming licensed nationally and in the state of New York was the first step in the pursuit of what was to grow into a deep and sincere passion for the healing arts and study of the human body and condition. To further pursue an ability to make a lasting difference in patient care, Dr. Kazhdan chose to study chiropractic for its philosophy of conservative and holistic care, without the use of surgery or medications. In 2010, he received Board Certification from the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners to practice chiropractic and obtained license to practice in the state of New York having successfully graduated from Bridgeport University in Connecticut. Continuing his education in healthcare, in 2012 Dr. Kazhdan completed a master’s program in clinical nutrition, recognizing the significant role food plays in wellbeing. In 2011, Dr. Kazhdan joined Manhattan Wellness Group, sharing an ideology for utilizing the best available researched methods of care along with genuine concern and effort toward each individual patient’s wellness. He has come to understand health as a multi-faceted concept, consisting of a constant effort toward improvement and including proper structural alignment of the physical body, exercise, full breathing, proper diet, correct posture and use of the body; nurturing the mind, meditation/mindfulness; emotional balance; and social responsibility. “To be a facilitator of health and well-being while practicing what I love is one of my greatest rewards.”
Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Kazhdan is very proficient, professional and knowledgeable. His assessment was thorough as was his treatment. He really "listened" to everything I had to say and answered my million questions with clarity and patience. He was respectful and treated me as an equal, something to be highly valued in a patient-doctor relationship. Thanks to Dr Kazhdan, I am confident that this issue will be laid to rest in just a few more sessions.
very great professional. thorough and explains your condition in easy terms. his staff is friendly and on time.
Best Chiropractor/Wellness Center visit I have ever had. Thorough, professional, not hokey, attentive, etc. highly recommend.
Dr. Kazhdan was very soft spoken but clearly explained each process of our session. He helped me understand the reason for some of the tension I was having. I was quickly given an adjustment, which did not cause any discomfort. At the end of the session, he used energy emitting patches on my upper back, easing some of that tension. I almost fell asleep! He was very professional but kind. I will definitely be going back to him! However, I have to warn other Zocdoc users who fill out a patient info prior to the appointment, beware that they will claim they can not "pull it up" and you will have to fill one out at the office, again. I've been to other doctors through Zocdoc and none has had an issue printing out a completed patient info form. Other than the extra paper work and lackluster service from reception, Dr. Kazhdan was phenomenal.
Great experience, highly recommend the 47th street office.
Dr. Kazhdan was very helpful in our initial consultation. Great bedside manner -- he explained his interpretation of my symptoms and problems in detail, as well as his plan for my care and recovery.
