This is not the first time that only when I get to the dr office I find out that they are not in network as described. I feel like these doctors are doing it on purpose to get you in their office.

The staff was so accommodating. Once I finished up with the X-rays, Dr. Sood met with me almost immediately. He thoroughly explained to me not only what it was that could be wrong but gave me very detailed options. Highly recommend Dr. Sood and his professionalism.

Being in the medical profession, and knowing what goes on "behind the scenes," I am a very critical consumer and patient. That being said, what an amazing experience I had with Dr Sood and his entire staff. From the on-line check-inprocess to the warm 1st greeting, the beautiful office reflects the overall experience. Dr. Sood is personable, caring, and extremely knowledgeable. He listens, explains everything in easy to understand terms, and comes up with a game plan to fit your lifestyle. Bottom line: Nobody wants an aching shoulder, a tennis elbow, or a bum knee....but if you have any type of orthopedic problem, this is where you want to "hobble" to:)

After my injury 2 years ago. i have not gotten the help i deserve from previous doctors. I traveled from Dutchess County ny (1hr 20min) to see this doctor. Dr. Amit Sood was one of the nicest most understanding orthopedic doctorsi have seen since my lower back injury. He was very thorough with his examination and understood all of my symptoms. He seems to care very much for his patients. He explains everything very clearly and is very knowledgeable about lower back problems. I wish i saw him sooner. I would recommend anyone and everyone to this office.

Dr. Sood was very professional and personable. Above all, he was very compassionate while explaining what might be wrong with my hands and what might be the cause of the problem. Above all, I liked very much that not only heexplained how to treat me, but also asked if I was at all satisfied with what he suggested as treatment course and if he was meeting with my expectations. I am really glad that I found Dr. Sood and I am now just looking forward to a - hopefully - full recovery.
