Verified Patient Reviews
I've only had one visit with Dr. Panagos so far, but he was very warm and really listened to me and what was going on. He was also able to explain his initial diagnosis in layman's terms without sounding at all condescending. Awaiting more testing, but very much looking forward to seeing Dr. Panagos again!
He listened and took care of the problem. I left there feeling a lot better and as days go by the pain is fading away. I will definitely go back to him if needed or recommend him to friends and family.
He was very patient, very mild-mannered and made me feel at ease.
I like his holistic approach to treating injuries: the entire body, including nutrition.
Very bright, knowledgeable physician
Did a nice, comprehensive job with the examination and provided good follow up pointers. Took time to answer questions. Would highly recommend.
He's the best. This was my 2nd visit, for a new issue, and he was informative and thorough with his diagnosis. I'm certain any other doctor would have sent me off for an MRI post haste, but Dr. Panagos instead took the time to work through my issue on the spot.
My favorite doctor of all time. So nice, so smart, I mean, he wins awards for how good he is! Dr. Andre really listens to your concerns and gives you a strait answer. I can not recommend him enough.
It doesn't get better than Dr. Panagos. Simply the best.
Dr. Panagos is a thoughtful doctor who takes a conservative approach. I have seen Dr. Panagos for plantar fasciitis and most recently for lower back pain. A year and a half ago, I would have tried anything at any expense to cure my plantar fasciitis. Other doctors I'd seen had advised me to have cortisone shots and surgery, but Dr. Panagos said that I should completely rest my foot from running for an extended period of time. I chose to listen to Dr. Panagos because of his willingness to listen to me, his careful explanation and description of what was happening in my foot, and his general bedside manner. It turns out that he was right and within a few months I was running again. I highly recommend Dr. Panagos for anyone who is experiencing spine/back or sports related physical injuries.
I waited 4 days after my initial visit and the doctor still had no contacted me with a diagnosis. I then had to reach out and leave a message for the doctor who finally followed up and said i needed an MRI. It is now another 4 days after the MRI and 2 weeks after my initial consult and I still have no heard from the doctor. Considering the amount of pain I expressed I would think that any reasonable medical professional would seek immediate treatment options. I'm unsure if this is a lack of organization, care or general laziness however I will be scheduling a new appointment with another doctor.
Very knowledgable and helpful.
The wait time was less than 30 minutes simply because it was my first time seeing the doctor and I had to fill out an additional form. But, besides that, he was very understanding and knowledgeable.
Dr. Panagos was pleasant and professional. He took his time to examine me and explained what he thought was the problem. He also gave me advise health and wellbeing.
Can't say enough good things about Dr. Panagos. He's awesome.
No wait, friendly, professional and helpful.
Great doctor. I would highly recommend him!
Dr Panagos was great, explained everything in detail, and he examined me. Which most doctors these days barely do. He was very knowledgable and I will highly recommend him to anyone. Especially if you are an athlete like me.
Very thorough, knowledgeable and is a straight shooter! Would definitely recommend
I had a very positive experience with Dr. Panagos. He saw me right away. He listened thoughtfully to my history of injury and understood the nature of my condition. I feel that he gave me intelligent advice regarding how to treat my back pain with physical therapy and acupuncture, and eventually just with certain exercises I can do myself. His advice totally made sense to me. I never felt rushed. I would recommend him highly to people I care about.
Long wait time but Dr. Panagos was very knowledgeable and helpful
I came to see Dr. Andre Panagos about my knee issue. He performed some manual tests. And determined that I needed an MRI, as he could not quite see anything wrong. I was happy with the appointment. I was informed that I will be contacted regarding my MRI appointment and what will be next. They would contact my insurance company, issue the MRI, and inform me of the details. This was three months ago, in September. I haven’t heard from his office since that time. No updates, no status, nothing. Very disappointing. How can someone not even bother with a telephone call or an email? Highly unprofessional. I expressed my concern for my knee pain that I was enduring for months. I was told not to worry, that first we’ll go through an MRI, and then take it from there. Needless to say, nothing happened. All promises. I will not be returning to this office, unfortunately.
He has excellent bedside manners Humble , knowledgable and listens . First doctor to approach my problem the way he did and with his approach he may solve multiple problems which are all connected
He listens very well and has very good logic when diagnosing based on the answers.
As a an MS in Narrative Medicine I value a clinician who knows how to listen and honor the patient's story of illness as a path to diagnosis and treatment. Dr Panagos demonstrated that he is highly skilled in balancing the Medical Narrative with the patient's narrative. I was not merely treated; I received CARE. I left his office feeling optimistic about the future and that I have found a true partner in my healthcare.
Dr. Panagos is very thorough and mild mannered. One feels like he/she is on the mend as soon as he opens his mouth. He listens to his patients and then prescribes a route to recovery. I'm glad to be working with him on my challenges.
I had to wait about half an hour to see him because he was taking an urgent phone call, but it was worth it! Dr. Panagos was super cheerful when he walked in and made me feel at ease, especially since I wasn't sure what was wrong with my foot. He worked fast, was efficiently and clearly knew what he was doing since he figured out which tendon was hurting really quickly.
Great doctor easy to talk to and very explicit diagnostics
I felt better as soon as I entered the reception area. The receptionist was lovely and attentive. The doctor was calming, soothing, capable and attentive. His diagnosis was clear and understandable and I have no doubt that I will recover quickly. I am so glad that he was able to see me on such short notice on a Friday in NYC. Kudos to Dr. Panagos!
Prompt and professional and does not jump the gun with pushing treatments until things are confirmed
Very positive experience.
Truly a one-of-a-kind doctor. Knowledgeable, professional and respectful.
Doctor was very friendly and welcoming, I really felt like he was listening to my descriptions of my pain and really took the time to evaluate my condition. I highly recommend him, he made me feel like I was in good hands.
He is extremely smart, patient and very helpful. Highly recommended!
Very nice guy but the plan for recovery was not made clear to me. I had to seek a second opinion because I didn't have a good sense of what to do and how to manage my injury after the appointment.
Very short wait time, nice staff, doctor seemed very knowledgeable and was friendly.
I felt that while the doctor was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, he did not seem to look into the severity of my issues. He continuously told me I needed to lose weight to solve the problems (stress fractures), would not look into all of my presented issues, and had me return for multiple follow up appts in which he did not do any further treatment or testing. I was unhappy with the service and eventually found a new doctor to treat my issues.
Excellent all the way around.
Dr. Panagos was very courteous and straight forward. He was also very knowledgable regarding my back injury. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Panagos has a great bedside manner and provides great care in a timely manner without seeming rushed.
Was very through, able to diagnose my issue, as well as tie in other issues i was having to point to the root cause, which other doctors were not able to do previously. Before I left he gave me advice, a clear plan of action, and a mitigation plan should recovery not go as well as planned. Could not have asked for more from my visit.
Excellent visit! Thoughtful, not rushed, seen immediately, easily diagnosed my problem and suggested solutions. Great appointment all around!
great dr glad I saw him
Thorough, user freindly, patient, caring and knows what he is doing
He was professional. Really took the time to understand my problem.
Visited this doctor with an bad back injury, in a lot of pain. While he was very thorough with evaluating my injury and past back issues, the doctor refused to prescribe medication that wold treat my pain immiedietly, and I suffered for days despite repeated phone calls about the pain I was in. When I asked for medication he told me it was an administrative nightmare and that he needs someone to come off the list for meds before he is able to prescribe. WOULD NEVER GO BACK- when in pain, pain needs to be managed. I am not a seaker and I was treated as I was.
Dr. Panagos is top notch. He has a very good "bedside" manner, is knowledgeable in his field and honestly cares about his patients. He takes his time with you when he treats you. You are not seen as a "number". You are seen as a "full" human being in need of medical help. It's evident that his priority is to help you.
My visit with Dr, Andre Panagos was very satisfying. He listened to my concerns and what matters most to me. I love the warm and friendly environment and the welcoming party at the front desk. My over all experience at this office was very pleasant and delightful.
I had a very good first meeting with Dr. Panagos today. He took the time to go over my medical history, to view a CD of a recent MRI, to read various procedure reports, to give me a physical exam and to perform injections. I highly recommend him as a physician who takes time with his patients.
Excellent first meeting. Dr. Panagos took the time to hear my medical history, to view a CD of my MRI, to do a physical exam and to perform some injections. I highly recommend him as a caring physician who takes time with his patients. I hope I will get the same in un-rushed treatment on subsequent visits.
DR. Panagos has a very polite bedside manner, professional, seems to know medicine and different health conditions well. It is still too soon to tell in just one appointment if this is the Doctor and place to treat the problem I'm having. He confirmed what I already knew from my Primary DR. and ordered another test MRI to further explore the cause of the issue.
Nice guy, super friendly, and explained to me what was going on. He was even fine with my daughter coming along and engaged her.
Not only would I recommend Dr. Panagos to a friend, I already have to three of them! I felt that I had his full attention, he didn't rush through my visit and took the time to answer all of my questions. I felt that he gave me honest answers that were geared to my wellbeing, as opposed to serving his own interests of seeing me again (for more $$). All-in-all a great appointment, truly recommended to anyone.
Super awesome experience. Was genuinely concerned about my issue and kept digging until a resolution could be found. Very impressed.
Dr. Panagos is very thoughtful and he tries to treat the root problem, not just what the immediate problem is! He was knowledgeable about my other conditions not even related to sports medicine. Really great visit!
Amazing doctor. Excellent demeanor. Knowledgable beyond prescribing a pill. Understands the whole connection between food and wellness. If you have pain or any kind of ongoing nagging problem, this is the person to see. Easily accessible. Great staff. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!
Very nice, seemed to be very professional, will continue to see him to treat my issue.
Very professional. Quick and informative visit. Would def recommend
Dr. Panagos was great! I went in with only mild pain and discomfort and he was very attentive and took my symptoms seriously. I will definitely be going back to him for any future orthopedic appointments.
It was a good visit.
It was too quick and Dr. Pagnagos seemed a bit rushed. He is a great doctor though.
First, what a nice guy! Very personable, caring, and interested in my problem. He answered all of my questions and concerns and gave me several options as a path forward (and some good advice!). With his guidance and skills I'm confident that I'll be back on the road to good health very soon!
Very impressive. The doctor was patient, clear, answered all my many questions. He explained there are several possible options based on diagnosis and arranged for an MRI. A good appointment.
It was great!
He was forthright, professional, and took time to do a thorough examination, answered all my questions, and came up with a sensible treatment plan.
It was excellent. Dr Panagos is kind, polite and very knowledgeable. He saved me from having a knee surgery.
Very informative and seemed very caring!
Got two doctors for the price of one, very professional. Tested my shoulder first then checked it with ultrasound right there and then. Left confident I received the right advice. Never leave reviews but this was really worth it!
Dr. Panagos was very through and had great beside manner!
Dr. Panagos is amazing -- bright, caring, inquisitive -- basically the ideal doc. I have had 10 years of shoulder problems and seen a bunch of docs. This was the first time I really understood the problem. We haven't yet figured out the treatment plan but I feel great that we understand the issue and are heading in the right direction. He's fabulous. Highly recommend.
Very good bedside manner, very thorough and felt like I received great medical attention/care.
AVOID!!! This guy is a money grubbing hack. Ignored my questions and strongly recommended an expensive out of pocket in-office treatment for something that required major, major surgery to fix. Thank God I got a second opinion.
He was great!
Great first time experience. He took time to understand and diagnose my issues. Feel like I am in very good hands.
Very good, enthusiastic doctor.
Very nice and fast
Very kind and complete examination. Not afraid to take quesitons and talk through options. He is wonderful
Professional and knowledgeable. 100% recommended.
I went to Dr. Panagos for several months for a minor sports injury and he was very professional, but nothing exceptional. Long wait time and very brief appointments. One issue I had was that it was difficult to get someone on the phone, having to call back 2-3 times when there was confusion with my prescriptions. Whenever I left a message no one would call me back even days later, so I ended up having to book all my follow-up appointments online.
Personable and professional
I think Dr. Panagos and his staff were great.. My appointment was on time and Doctor was very very nice and knows what he doing.. It was my first visit, and I highly recommend Dr. Panagos office..
He has renewed my faith in the medical community. I can't thank him enough. I would recommend him to anyone. Fantastic doctor and person. He was so thoughtful, knowledgable and kind. He listened! I am so happy to have found him.
Very friendly and understanding. Listens to your issues.
Andre is very knowledgable and did a thorough investigation of the issue. He is a great communicator and described the diagnoses and next steps clearly.
Smart, articulate and thorough.
didn't find this doctor particularly helpful. more like a sitdown conversation and that was about it.
First appointment, first impressions excellent. Wait time was long but likely was a one off, very rainy day and everyone delayed.
He is very thorough and thoughtful and takes the time to listen and provide feedback and a course of action.
Excellent doctor! Displays genuine care and is very thorough to diagnose problem. Tool time to explain the issue. Highly recommended.
Very professional and friendly
Dr. Panagos was very attentive and seemed genuinely caring for me as a patient. It was a refreshing contrast to the wham bam thank you NEXT attitude that I'm used to with most NY physicians.
He was personable and very helpful.
Very good experience. Only rated 4 stars because I've only had one appointment. Strong possibility of raising to 5.
