Verified Patient Reviews
Thank you so much. Dr. Degenhardt really knows his stuff and I feel like I got everything I’ll need and more for my upcoming trip to Southeast Asia.
Dr. D is the man.
This is my favorite doctor in NYC. He’s incredibly thoughtful and takes his time to look deeper into your health issues. I highly recommend him
Honestly, the best doctor I have ever visited. He saw me immediately with no wait time and was very patient and listened to all my concerns. He was extremely knowledgeable on hormone issues and also sports related injuries. He gave amazing holistic/lifestyle recommendations instead of just writing a prescription and sending me on my way like most doctors I have experienced. I would highly recommend choosing Dr. Degenhardt!
Very helpful, listened patiently while I explained my symptoms and reassured me about the next steps, both immediate and long term. Didn't feel rushed at all, which is sometimes the case with doctors.
Very thorough doctor. Very knowledgeable
Aran is very nice and approachable doctor. He has a lot of great recommendations if you're traveling. His office staff was also very nice and helpful.
Dr. Deganhardt was thorough in reviewing my current and previous medical records. He made recommendations and took the time to explain each to me until I understood all of them. His speed of thought made the visit short while also covering all my current medical needs. This was for a general physical (results of various tests and some further testing needed). Very professional and likable demeanor, too!
He's awesome! Left feeling informed and not rushed! I saw him specifically for Pre travel check and glad I did.
This was my first experience with alternative medicine and it was nothing short of a miracle. In a matter of seconds I felt instant relief. The initial procedure was brief, but I'll be back for a more thorough treatment. I liked Dr. D's explanations of what is likely causing the pain.
Best experience I ever had. Awesome doctor!!!
Dr. Degenhardt was very professional and informative. I had an early morning appointment and only waited about 15 minutes to be seen. I was so impressed by the great service and his excellent bedside manner that I recommended a friend. Great office. I will definitely visit again.
Dr. Degenhardt has been my primary doctor for 5yrs. He believes in wellness over medication. I have severe allergies and he has helped me tremendously every time I got sick.
Dr. Degenhardt was great. I came for travel shots down I will be traveling to India for 6 weeks. He explained everything carefully especially adverse side effects. When I did get a fever from the Typhoid vaccine, I called and he called me back and answered my questions/concerns. He also prepared me a list of all over the counter medicine I should bring which is beyond what I expected. Probably switching him to my primary next time I need a physical as well! Oh and my insurance wouldn't cover the travel shots and they called me before my appointment to make sure I was aware. Great reception staff.
Dr. Degenhardt was really great. He was on time, my appointment was quick and thorough, and I was able to get everything I needed very quickly. [Travel shots for Peru]
I enjoy seeing Dr. Degenhardt and what I love most about him is his holistic approach. I greatly appreciate his Eastern perspective and training.
He's a fantastic doctor. I've been seeing him (and his colleagues) for years and have never had a bad experience. Dr. Degenhardt is thoughtful and compassionate in his care. His office is timely & totally professional. Appointments aren't too hard to book, and they take care of any insurance issues relatively quickly.
I felt very comfortable discussing my healthcare with Dr. Aran Degenhardt. He explained everything well and was patient with me and answered all my questions! I left his office feeling confident and that I am receiving the best care. Highly recommended!!
Dr Degenhardt is honestly the best sports medicine doctor in NYC. He is incredibly intelligent and experienced with complex diagnosis and provides out of the box solutions to truly leads to healthy recovery. I would give him 10 stars if I could!
Dr. Degenhardt took the time to walk through my blood work in very detailed manner, and answered any questions I had. He also made suggestions on my diet change based on my food log, finding ways to accommodate my cuisine preference. I like the fact that he prefers my own attempt at diet change first before jumping to changing my medication.
I love Dr Aran Degenhardt. He has been my doctor for many years now. He is very practical-minded and holistic - meaning he looks at all the information to come to a smart conclusion that includes healthy, green-life answers if appropriate to the condition.
Friendly staff, quick timing, Doc. Dagenhart was personable and easy to communicate with. Good bedside manner. Very little wait time.
Dr. Degenhardt is one of the best primary care physicians I've ever had. I so much appreciate his focus on preventative healthcare, and the fact that he is trained as both a Western doctor, and in Eastern medicine (acupuncture, for example) as well. He brings the best of both approaches to his practice and I am healthier as a result.
Always excellent. Consumate professionals, respectful but also warm.
Very thorough! The best doctor in the world
Dr. Degenhardt is great. Very professional, friendly & genuinely concerned with my wellbeing.
Very nice, thorough. Personable.
Front desk could be more welcoming...otherwise: Dr Degenhardt is wonderful! He takes the time to understand your concerns and really asks the right questions to get to the bottom of things. I really appreciate his natural approach to medicine as well - instead of putting me on more medication, he's helped me get off a few prescriptions instead. He's excellent!
Dr. Degenhardt was extremely knowledgeable and thorough. Even though I only went in for a travel vaccine, he took more time to learn my medical history than either my primary care physician or my gynecologist ever have. Frankly, he was also more helpful. Would definitely recommend.
He is great! He uses traditional and alternative medicine, which I love. He doesn't rush to give prescriptions, but also suggests alternative solutions, like acupuncture, herbs, etc.
I went in looking for a new physician, saw some good reviews on this ZocDocs for Dr. Aran. I was excited that there's a sports medicine and holistic element to the office. However I really had an unwelcoming experience..... the front desk was typical NY, preoccupied and was as un-warming as the waiting area. The Dr was more then 30 mins late (already at 11:30am). I needed a physical, haven't seen a dr in over a year. Found it amusing that he asked me what my height and weight are for his notes, instead of accurately obtaining it. He inquired about my sexual orientation only to go on a really unwarranted descriptive rant about how chlamydia and gonorrhea can be everywhere. All in all, he seemed cocky and a bit full of himself. He didn't seem thorough considering I was a new patient. I would not recommend or go back.
Always takes his time and is very thorough! My favorite Dr. I have ever had.
I've seen Dr Degenhardt several times now and on each visit he's been very thorough, genuinely listened and then clearly explained and justified his thoughts and advice. His questions & treatment advice has always focussed on lifestyle first, and medicating last, which I have found really welcome & refreshing for the US. The front desk can be busy (it's Manhattan!) but I've found the team friendly, efficient and to have a great attitude.
I was in and out of there so fast! Aran was so, so knowledgeable about the necessary vaccines I'd need for the trip I was taking. He made sure I was well aware of what I needed, but didn't bother with anything I didn't. I also usually panic to an incredible degree when getting shots, but he cleverly distracted me by asking me questions about my trip while injecting so I didn't focus on it at all. It was really great.
Best doctor ever!
He was very friendly & made you fee comfortable. Highly recommend, as he is the best doctor i have visited.
He is very thorough. I have been looking for a doctor for a long time and I am so happy that I don't have to look any more. He is amazing.
Dr Degenhardt was amazing, made me feel confident about his recommendations and gave me great advice despite it being the first time I've seen him. Would recommend highly!
He is very knowledgeable.
Dr. Degenhardt takes the time to go over all test results and discusses treatment plans; also provided any necessary referrals and is willing to answer any questions in layperson's language.
He makes you feel extremely comfortable during examination procedures :) I'm usually shy with asking questions (due to a jaded past with some doctors) but it was quite easy there. Staff is great and wait til is usually pretty minimal :-)
He is very personable, takes keen interest , and is quite effective.
Super nice and welcoming. Very informative. Def recommend this Doc.
As an athletic person who is constantly exposing myself to potential sports related injuries, having Dr. Degenhardt as my primary care is the best medical decision I've ever made. His approach to all of his treatments are highly practical while always airing on the side of conservatism. He is extremely thorough in his explanations and openly discusses his reasoning for a diagnoses, it shows a level of confidence in his knowledge that I don't often see in doctors. I highly recommend his services!
Dr. Degenhardt was great. He was friendly, thorough, and made me very comfortable. The office staff were great too. Friendly and able to answer any questions I had. I've never really had a primary care doctor, but I think Dr. Degenhardt might change that for me!
He was professional and understanding
Clear, thorough, patient, listens well and provides good feedback and referrals when needed.
Looks at full picture when evaluating health issues and asks questions that make sense to ones health concerns.
He's the best doctor I've ever seen, which is why I seek his opinion first. He always listens to me and comes up with treatment suggestions that work for me and my lifestyle. Couldn't be happier!
I have been to many doctors in my time, this visit was the best. The care and concern was refreshing. Everyone from the front desk girls to the people working in the back were all professional and courteous. I will recommend Doctor Dagenhardt to everyone. A great experience.
Dr. Degenhardt really cares, and brings together the knowledge of a modern Western doctor with training in ancient Eastern holistic medicine, acupuncture, etc, to provide comprehensive healthcare that is focused on active preventative measures (and limiting drugs (prescriptions) and invasive procedures).
Dr Degenhardft spent time in asking questions that I felt relevant. Bedside manner professional; Felt a connection, he was not reserved & distant. I also like that he practices acupuncture, he has eastern medicine knowledge. That is important to me. Highly recommend him!
This was my first visit to a general practitioner in NYC, and I was not disappointed. I expected a very short appointment to address my concerns, as I feel most doctors are rushed and always too packed in their appointment schedule. Dr. Degenhardt proved me wrong! It took some time to get into the examination room, which he apologized extensively for. But instead of rushing me out, he spent ample time addressing every aspect of my health concerns/problems and even explained his reasoning behind the questions he was asking me. I think the appointment lasted almost an hour and a half, and that was all face-time with Dr. Degenhardt or with an NYU student (who I gave permission to be present at the beginning of my appointment), not waiting in an examination room all by myself. For a doctor who spends genuine time addressing concerns, I would highly recommend Dr. Degenhardt!
Dr Degenhardt takes a very holistic approach, which I greatly appreciate. He is thorough, and suggests a range of therapies, including physical therapy and acupuncture, rather than just automatically prescribing medication. I would definitely recommend him.
Very pleasant & very thorough.
A great doctor who not only remembers his patients, but really cares about their wellbeing! I have been a patient for 6 years and now my Wife is a patient too! Could not recommend him more.
Dr. Degenhardt does everything himself. Your experience is 100% with the doctor. It is personable and you don't feel that usual rush.
He is a great doctor and very professional. I highly recommend him.
Dr. Degenhardt is very thorough and sincere. I like that he does not push prescriptions or vaccinations unless completely necessary. I am in pretty good health but when ever I have any concerns he will always take me seriously and do proper tests.
Very professional and extremely knowledgeable
I have happily been a patient of doctor Degenhardt for 4 years and have the utmost respect for both he and his entire practice. I go to Dr. Degenhardt as my primary care physician and go to Dr. Stark for sports injuries, all within the same practice. I highly recommend Dr. Degenhardt, Dr. Stark and the entire Sports Medicine at Chelsea office.
Dr. Degenhardt was exactly what I needed. I was looking for consistent primary care and had a lot of questions. He listened to them all of them and answered every single one. Very patient, very pleasant and very cool. Highly recommend this place!
Great bedside manner. super helpful, takes the time to explain things
Dr. Degenhardt is very thorough and takes the time to explain things. I highly recommend him. He makes you comfortable and is open to asking questions.
Dr. Degenhardt is friendly, thorough and thoughtful. He took time to answer my questions with helpful explanations.
Very thorough and great bedside manner. Takes a holistic and preventive approach, which I greatly appreciated.
Can't recommend Dr. Degenhardt enough! Been seeing him for the past several years, have recommended many friends who were equally as happy with his consult.
Really helpful and thoughtful. Like that he recommended alternative medicine
I was seen within 20 minutes of my scheduled appointment. Normally, especially for 'before work appointments' I don't like to wait more than 15, but any annoyance I had disappeared once I sat down with Dr. Degenhardt, who was incredibly thorough and thoughtful. He took his time examining me, explaining his diagnosis of the root causes for my pain/issues, and recommended a plan of action that was reasonable and not overwhelming.
He was very informative after dealing with a few other doctors who did not bother to give me any details on what was going on in my body. Would definitely recommend and will be returning.
One of the best doctors I have seen for general health issues. It is clear he is very interested in my well being. I came in for a checkup and to establish him as my general care provider and left thinking more about my overall health and what I could be doing.
Dr. Degenhardt is the best! My husband and I are both patients and we have had wonderful experiences.
He's one of the best doctors I have ever seen. Really friendly, takes time to listen and understand individual situation and I never feel rushed.
He listened !!!! I left feeling with more direction and making plans to improve my health
He's knowledgeable and has a holistic and caring approach.
Excellent...!! Very good, kind and educates
Excellent Doctor. Professional, Knowledgeable, Empathetic, Wholistic and Ethical.
Excellent doctor! Spends time with you & listens to you. Excited about helping you achieve your health goals. Wonderful experience every time.
Dr. Degenhardt is a very personable and knowledgeable physician. I would and have recommended him to friends. I can't say enough about his professionalism and helpfulness.
Saw Dr. Degenhardt and a 3rd year Med student that took a great amount of care.
As usual, great!
Speak English, Chinese and Japanese, know Zhenjiu (acupuncture and moxibustion).Very nice.
Very knowledgeable. Felt comfortable and will continue my treatment with him
Best doctor! Super knowegable and a great listener. He genuinely cares and is super cool.
i really liked him. The only downside is they dont do lab work at the location. they send you somewhere else which is kind of a hassle
I loved meeting with Dr. Degenhardt. He's very knowledgeable and provides a fresh perspective. He's very accessible and easy to talk to.
Dr. Degenhardt was very thorough and professional. He really listened and understood my surface and underlying needs. This was a very positive experience.
A thorough and in depth examination and history. Took notes and listened to my concerns. Extremely professional
Dr Degenhardt was excellent. Methodical and detailed. His staff was what initially sold me on his office, especially Johanna. I've gone a couple times, so this was the first time, that I had to wait. Worth the visit. Glad I found him and them.
Dr Degenhardt is kind, professional, thorough aad takes the time to explain and answer questions
As always friendly and professional.
Dr. Degenhardt has such a great way. He is so easy to talk to and explains everything clearly. He doesn't rush you. He is very thorough and really listens. I am so happy that I found him. Its the first time I have ever really felt comfortable with a doctor.
I have been working and seeing dr's for 17yrs. In all my years I feel Dr. Deganhardt is one of the BEST i have EVER come across. I'm so lucky to have found him and I referred many people to him as well. I have been quite sick up and down through the past 5yrs and it's because of him that I'm feeling better!
He is amazing so fortunate to have him
The physician's assistant was very friendly and moved quickly through my history during my first appointment. She did an excellent job. Dr. Degenhardt spent adequate time with me and made sure that all my questions were answered.
I was able to get my travel vaccines and a through exam. The vaccines were a welcome surprise since I thought I'd have to go to a travel clinic for them.
Dr. Degenhardt was so easy to talk to, listened and really made me feel very comfortable. I am so happy I found him on Zoc Doc. I have been looking for a GP for a long time and I think I am here to stay.
Came in for a visit with a persistent dry cough. Didn't feel hurried or rushed and all my questions were answered clearly and patiently. Dr. Degenhardt definitely takes a medicine for dummies approach in explaining things but honestly, that's ok.
Dr. D is a breath of fresh air and works very hard to get his patients on the right track. He is very hands on and has helped me tremendously turn my future health outlook from questionable to good. I highly recommend going to Dr. Degenhardt if you are looking to get healthy and make some changes.
Great Doctor, extremely helpful! Made me a great referral.
Excellent. Very knowledgable. Took the time to cover everything. Didn't rush. Really covered all the bases. Made sure all my concerns were answered. Gives you the feeling you are really in good hands and being taken care of.
I highly recommend Doctor Degenhardt I'm a 40 years Male that is not much in going to doctors He has been my primary care doctor for the past 5 years I have never wait more that 5 minutes for him he is open minded smart friendly Great doctor great person
Okay, I went from being a mess for the past four weeks feeling foggy & dizzy & stressed out to being diagnosed with Vertigo by the doctor after some tests in the office. He recommended I do some things and also gave me a unique treatment. That was 5 days ago and I can't believe how much better things have gotten (knock on wood). I am probably 80% improved and now have hope that in the near future this will be in the rear view mirror. I love this man.
My time with Dr. Degenhardt was great! He was very thorough and efficient. Also, very good about explaining why something may be happening and some steps to mitigate.
Dr Degenhardt is honest and genuine. He talks with you, assesses your situation and makes recommendations. No unnecessary banter which is good when you want to get in and out.
Dr. Degenhardt is awesome!! Highly recommended!!
I like it a lot. I've been working for four years and changed primary doctor for several times. But after the first visit to Dr. Degenhardt, I Immediately decide to see Aran Degenhardt as my primary doctor. =)
He's the best doctor - period.
Dr Aran was ok, not amazing. I won't return, I will find another doctor for my needs next time.
I consistently have the best experiences at the office of Dr. Degenhardt. Once I had a severe flu or flu-like symptoms and I called and they saw me right away. A flu doesn't sound very serious but they did not belittle my feelings and when I arrived the doctor was concerned about my condition and treated me immediately. The office staff always greets me as soon as I walk in and everyone is very professional and friendly. I feel lucky to have such a great doctor.
There is never a waiting time at Sports Medicine Chelsea and I love the team. Dr Degenhardt always schedules a lot of time with his patients so I never feel rushed.
He took 30 minutes to explain the results of all the bloodwork and helped me understand what I should be eating for my health.
Dr Degenhardt was thoughtful and patient and thorough.
Dr. Degenhardt was very thorough in his care and diagnosis of the many problems. He has an excellent bedside manner and was quick to give me some advice on management of my problems. I have been struggling to find a primary care physician, I'm so glad I found him!
Although I do like Dr Degenhardt, I was just hit with a large bill for tests. In no way should any doctor order tests without informing the patient that it is not covered by insurance. I'm very disappointed in this disservice, and will be much more careful in the future.
I had a great experience with Dr. Degenhardt! I'm an endurance athlete, and came in for an annual checkup to make sure all systems are running smoothly. He was friendly, knowledgeable, genuinely engaged, and took his time during the exam. Highly recommend!
Dr. Dagenhardt has been my PCP for nearly 4 years and I couldn't have asked for a better primary care doc.
This was my first time with him. He was extremely patient to listen to my medical history and explain along the way what could the possible causes or conditions. He also chose to wait for my results coming from various other doctor/specialist prescriptions, instead of prescribing more tests. He was very courteous and made me feel extremely comfortable.
He is incredibly chatty, too chatty for my preference.
Great and efficient doctor - I often see Mikayla as well who is really wonderful. They really need to do a better job with their wait time though.
I am very happy with Doc Degenhardt. He has spent an ample amount of time with me thru my last two visits comprehensively evaluating my past health and great suggestions as to how I can improve my blood pressure and eating habits. I think I have finally found a new primary care doctor after many, many years.
He is an amazing and talented doctor who cares for his patients.
Dr. Degenhardt was helpful, efficient and totally professional. I usually feel very anxious in doctor's offices but the environment is comfortable, the staff is friendly and knowledgable and I left my appointment feeling completely satisfied.
He does a great job of talking through everything and he doesn't jump straight to medications. He wants to observe and understand what your body is actually doing long term rather than a quick fix. The follow-up isn't as clear as I'd like and you have to go to a different location to get blood taken, but I'm confident in him regardless.
Dr. Degenhardt was very thorough and thoughtful. He asked a lot of questions, and made practical recommendations to improve on some health gripes I mentioned. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a new PCP. The staff in the waiting room are very friendly and professional.
Attentive,courteous and very knowledgable.
I have seen Dr. Degenhardt for a few years now. I highly recommend him to anyone that asks for a recommendation to a sports doctor or primary care doctor. He is very personable and knowledgeable.
Listens carefully, in depth assessment. Great explanation.
He's the one! I've changed 4 different primary doctors already, Dr Degenhardt is twice better than all of them. Our body is all connected, but most of the primary doctors doesn't know about it/simply ignore it. Dr Degenhardt systematically checked my health condition and treat all the problem in an integral way. Plus, he spend lots of time dig out the root cause of all these problems. He's so patient and has a sense of humor too. He also knows traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, and combine them into his treatment.
He's always attentive and makes sure to follow up on any problems that were discussed during the last visit. Always makes you feel comfortable.
Dr. Degenhardt is fantastic. Put me at ease so that I felt comfortable discussing things with him. I would recommend him to all of my friends and family.
Very knowledgable and inquisitive doctor. Doesn't just think of western approaches to treat issues, but tries to understand issues and think of all possible remedies including non pharmaceutical suggestions
Very thorough, explains everything, he shows that he actually has concern towards helping me with my health. I love that I have found a doctor that is really fixing me. I have already recommended him to three different people.
Very thorough with the assessment and patient-centered. He addressed all of my questions and concerns, I found my go-to Doctor.
Short wait, professional, genuinely humble and very informative. The staff were very kind and welcoming.
Doctor Degenhardt listens to your concerns and gives excellent and informed diagnosis. He's very easy to talk to and he has an excellent bed side manner.
Good experience. However does not perform lab work on site. Would not have booked knowing this beforehand.
Seen immediately even though I was a bit late. All staff were pleasant but efficient. Dr. Degenhardt is to-the-point but never rude, and spoke in detail about my health without dumbing it down too much but also without talking over my head. Genial but professional. Exactly the balance I like in a doctor and hope to use him as my primary from now on.
Dr. Degenhardt is a very caring, empathic physician who takes time with his clients and caters treatment to individual needs. He is able and willing to integrate elements of traditional medicine with complementary modalities as he is very receptive and open to various forms of treatment. He is a good listener, provides excellent feedback and I would highly recommend him.
Had my new patient appointment today with Dr. Aran Degenhardt. Hands down the best doctor I have ever had. No one has ever checked me out so thurowly in my life like he did. Also FYI I have worked in medical field as a medical assistant for 12 years. Amazing. I'm so excited!
He made me feel comfortable Explained why I needed tests He is so professional
Very attentive and really listened to me. Was very quick and thorough. I really liked his personable attitude.
Dr. Degenhardt listens to my concerns, and methodically addresses each concern. He spends time with me and genuinely seems interesting in proving accurate and caring medical advice. He is resourceful and well respected and I urge anyone looking for a great doctor to consider him even if you don’t live hear Flatiron/Chelsea area. I commute from the Upper West Side and it’s worth my time! He won’t disappoint you!
He is a wonderful and thorough doctor that I trust completely.
Very professional and knowledgable. Take his time with the patient and answers all questions. Would highly recommend him.
Unlike with previous visits, I had to wait about 20 minutes past my appointment time to be seen by the doctor.
He'll chastise you some if you admit to drinking a lot of alcohol (but this is New York!) or smoking cigarettes (even occasionally), but is otherwise awesome. Very professional, knowledgeable, prompt, and he has a great staff. I would highly recommend as he is one of the only doctors I've found in NYC that I actually want to keep going back to. I've gone back 2-3 times and he and Michaela (?) are wonderful.
DR. Degenhardt was very through with my initial visit, taking plenty of time documenting my issues. His staff was very diligent in following up to ensure I remembered to make another appointment (which was good as I tend to put this stuff aside) to discuss my lab results and possible treatments.
Not having a regular doctor in New York was a bit stressful but after my visit with Dr. Degenhardt I need look no further. Very knowledgeable, friendly and easy to talk to. Has a no nonsense overall health improvement approach without being preachy. Great doctor.
I met with Dr. Degenhardt on a general consultation and immediately felt comfortable and at-ease. He listened to what I had to say and delivered relevant and easy-to-understand answers. I never felt rushed in any way, and will return to his office for subsequent visits.
My visit with Dr. Degenhardt was great. He's very kind, thorough, and professional.
He is one of the most patient doctors in NYC. I have been to a bunch and they never seem to really be listening and they seem to want to rush out the door. Dr. Degenhardt takes his time with explanation and great at answering questions. More importantly, he seems very invested in "fixing" me. I feel like I see a light at the end of the tunnel with him.
Easy going but serious. Covered everything that was necessary. So glad we made the switch.
Dr. Degenhardt is communicative, empathetic, thorough, and excellent at what he does.
I've been living in NY for about 10 years and had not come across a PCP that I felt good about. Dr. Degenhardt is kind, thorough, and has a good blend of Eastern and Western sensibilities so that his practice methods are well-rounded.
Dr Degenhardt is an exceptional physician. I am very happy with the quite of care he and attention he gives.
This was my second visit with Dr. Degenhardt, a follow-up. I have been without a GP for years because my doctor retired, and I have been unable to find a doctor with whom I feel comfortable both in terms of bedside manner and diagnosis/treatment. Finally, I have a doctor I will definitely return to when I need one. With both western and eastern training, Dr. Degenhardt has a very broad and deep toolbox from which to draw the most appropriate treatment with a wholistic view.
I went here for my 12 month check up.The office staff as well as the doctor were all kind, prompt and attentive. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Excellent doctor, takes the time to listen to the patient and thoroughly explain all the options and procedures. Encountering multiple apathetic doctors after a car accident I've finally found one I have confidence in.
Dr. Degenhardt is excellent! I highly recommend him.
Pleasant and helpful
I really like Dr Aran Degenhardt he made me feel comfortable and easy to talk to. I was nerves but that changed quickly thank you Dr Degenhardt
He is very patient and thinks outside of the box. My symptoms are very unique and he continues to find solutions vs. giving up. I highly recommend him!
Very happy with the experience overall. Dr. Degenhardt is a true professional who takes the time to explain items in detail and also asks the right questions. I felt very comfortable having a frank discussion with him and I appreciate his medical knowledge wholeheartedly.
This was my first visit with Dr. Degenhardt, and I came in tremendous discomfort. I left with significant relief, thanks to his diagnosis and treatment. I wish I had found him sooner. He listened, took a comprehensive medical history, and had the resources of both traditional and alternative medicine at his disposal. His office staff was professional and friendly. It was an overall very good experience for someone who hesitates to go to doctors.
For years, I used to fly back to my hometown for doctors appointments because so many different MDs in NYC were unreliable or untrustworthy. Since seeing Dr. Degenhardt, I trust that I'm in caring and capable hands. Thanks so much!
friendly, sharp and precise as usual !
Dr. Degenhardt is the best doctor I've ever had. He is knowledgable, patient, and he takes the time to explain everything you'd want to know about your own health. I felt like I was in really great hands with him; he really seems to care about his patients' wellbeing.
Competent, direct and easy going doc. Exactly what I was after.
Usually see the PA Mikayla who is always very kind and addresses all my needs. Very knowledgeable and would always go back to her.
Been seeing Degenhardt for 2 years now. Never really had a good primary care doctor during college. Since I moved out to NYC, Dr. Degenhardt, his staff and interns have been very diligent, patient, and efficient. Really a pleasure to have him as a doctor! Everytime I go to his office it feels good, and I leave saying what a great guy, great doctor. Takes his time to listen, is always smiling and adds a lot of value
He is a great Dr. you won't be disappointed
Boys' new PCP and couldn't feel more relieved as a parent. Hit a wall with previous provider. Zero hesitation to bring them here. Should have done this way sooner.
Transferred care of my sons to Dr. D in hopes of receiving more integrative care for them. He and the rest of the staff have provided the most comprehensive care and treatment modalities for all my acute and chronic issues. I'm confident my sons will receive the equal high quality of care.
Somewhat rushed, but I did ask for emergency appnt , so maybe why. The office receptionists were super helpful and very effective at getting specialists appointments on the same day. The office overall needs some TLC. But it did look like they are putting some effort in redesign, based on construction signs. Overall, it's a well run office with great personal..
Nice office Front desk is friendly and professional Doctor Degenhardt has great bedside manner.
First time seeing Dr. Degenhardt. Was amazingly thorough, listened to everything I had to say. Would definitely recommend.
Dr Degenhardt has been my GP for 3 years. I've always gotten clear, thoughtful, and professional care from him. Great doctor.
He's one of the best doctors I've known. It's a shame how hard it is to find an appointment with him, when you are about to confirm your appointment, a pop up tells you that an intern under his supervision can see you instead of him. I'm not surprised tho.
Dr. Degenhardt is fantastic! Thorough, caring, and efficient. He is the best primary care doctor I've ever had.
He's the best MD around! Highly recco him!
Dr Aran seems to be a fine doctor, but frankly the majority of my experience was with the NP, who was extremely thorough with her questions. I made an appointment with Dr Aran, but this practice seems to default all patients to seeing an NP—not a problem for me, but something to be aware of. Also, it was not very clear that this is a sports medicine practice. Just something to consider.
I really like Dr. Degenhardt! Even though I don't live in Chelsea anymore, I refuse to go to anyone else. Dr. Degenhardt listens to my concerns and doesn't run out of the waiting room to see the next patient without addressing my concerns. He has a great personality and it's easy to get an appointment. I highly recommend that you consider him if you want a Dr. that will listen to you and perform a complete evaluation during your visit and a Dr who is not primarily interested in just billing your insurance.
I saw Dr. Degenhardt and Mikayla Nemes. They were both fantastic - specially Mikayla! I am very happy with picking them as my primary physicians.
Dr Degenhardt is always thorough, friendly and has great bedside manners!! I would definitely recommend him to anyone!
He was very nice and took down all possible information needed. He didn't judge and he took his time listening as many doctors don't like to do. I know because I work in medical field so there are doctors who just say it's their way and they know better. Dr. Aran was very nice and took his time assessing me. I would recommend him to family and friends.
Dr. Degenhardt is extreemly professional, yet human. He takes the time to educate and empower me. Very natural and holistc in his recommendations. I feel in control of my health when I leave his office. He uses modern technology with old school bed side manner. His office is impeccable and his staff is amazing.
He is awesome!!
Dr. Degenhardt is clear, thorough, and gives a great combination of Eastern and Western medical advice. He is obviously extremely smart, but has great bedside manner and does not make you feel rushed. I would (and have!) recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Aran took his time to talk to me and answer all of my questions. He has a great bedside manner, and I'd recommend him to anyone.
They were super efficient (no waiting around) and had great customer service (lots of front desk people to greet you and get you checked in). My doc was really friendly and made sure I had all my questions answered and made some great recommendations.
As usual...great..He is a complete professional; yet cordial ..friendly and able to explain maladies ...treatments in an easily understood manner
My visits with Dr. Degenhardt are always great. He is thorough, asks a ton of questions, isn't quick to prescribe meds, and really listens. Everything you want in a primary care doc.
Can't say enough good things about Dr. Degenhardt. I've been seeing him for years and always recommend him to friends.
Dr. Degenhardt was courteous, calm and confident. He took his time and provided insightful responses to my questions. Highly recommend his services.
As always Dr. Degenhardt is a devil in the detail. He has amazing professional bedside manner. He reviews everything with you and is never quick to rush you off. I love that he listens to his patients and makes recommendation to improve your issues. He is the best Dr. I have ever had and highly recommend him to everyone.
He is very professional and friendly. Talked to me like a human being and explain in detail what and how my ailments were affecting me and laid out a game plan to tackle my problems. Most importantly he helped me on my very first visit as opposed to other Drs who just smile and nod at you. Thank you Aran. I look forward to my next visit.
Terrific doctor. Thorough, trustworthy, knowledgable, respectful - overall great doctor.
I saw Dr. Degenhardt for the first time for an annual physical, and he was really great! I felt like he really listened to what I had to say, was thorough in answering all my questions and explaining all the parts of the visit. The front desk staff was also super friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend you to check him out - I only wish I would have found him sooner. It's definitely one of the best offices I've been to for medical care in NYC.
Dr. Degenhardt is great. He came referred by a friend, and he's been my primary care physician for years now. He's got a great mix of medical education and experience including western medicine, as well as East Asian, tribal, and holistic medicine, so he brings the best of many worlds. He's easy to talk to and makes you feel comfortable as well. Highly recommended.
great. solved my issue and fully described the problem and how to take care of it if it occurs again.
Dr. Degenhardt is a great doctor. He is very knowledgeable and communicates to his patients in the right manner. He gives thorough explanations and actively listens which is extremely important for a patient/doctor relationship. I am comfortable and confident knowing that he is my primary care physician and trust him with any and all health concerns.
Dr. Degenhardt was very knowledgeable and friendly. He answered all of my questions and was thorough. I was happy with my appointment.
Dr. Degenhardt is open minded, very smart and approaches medicine and treatment holistically. He's very personable and takes his time with his patience. I recommend him highly.
Dr. Degenhardt spent time thoroughly reviewing test results and answering all questions. I would strongly recommend him. >
Amazing Doctor !
He is a good doctor who knows sports medicine and how to speak to patients.
Dr Degenhardt is an excellent doctor. He is courteous; sympathetic and always follows up. His advice over the years has been of huge personal benefit to me. Again, he is an excellent doctor. Highly recommended!
I have been seeing Dr. Aran Degenhardt for over 2 years now. Always a great experience with Dr. Aran Degenhardt.
It was great! He is always helpful . When he explains what I have and what needs to be done, it is always very clear.
He's a GP in a clinic that specializes in sport's medicine. Feels more like a gym than a doctor's office. I decided to go to him because of his background in Eastern medicine. I was actually shocked when he performed my physical OVER my winter clothes. No weight taken. No height measured. His explanation was that I'm healthy and he's not going to look for something because the body has anomalies so if you look you're going to find something. BUT with my family history I prefer to err on the side of caution. I'm going to look for another doctor.
It was a really good visit. He was not only able to perform my annual checkup, but he was also able to help me with my ankle issues. He stated things that made sense for me and was surprised no other doctors in the past even went as far as to help me fix this issue. I have sprained and rolled my ankles so many times there is not much left, and being an outside sales person I dont have down time for surgery. He came up with a few other ideas and am excited to get started and start walking "normally"
My check-up was great and thorough. Felt very at ease and casual. Took care in addressing all issues.
Excellent! He takes the time to ask a lot of questions, to really understand my health not just from diagnostic metrics but also to understand how my lifestyle may effect my health. It was a really pleasant experience and he gave me a lot of suggestions on how to treat hollistically, beyond medication.
Great bedside manner and knowledgeable, highly recommended
He is awesome, actually explained my problems, what they mean long term, and multiple solutions to help me in daily life. Would recommend to anyone
Great communicator and easy to talk to. Very thorough and highly recommended.
Overall, just an excellent visit.
First time visitor to Dr. Degenhardt and had a great experience. The staff was warm, courteous and efficient. Dr. Degenhardt saw me right away and took the time to listen and take notes. Would highly recommend and will surely be back.
He is great! He quickly identified the problems in my arms and back, and gave me some relief with saline injections. He also prescribed physical therapy to help my situation. He was very nice and thoughtful and really cared about finding real solutions.
He was very thorough and asked a range of questions to get to know my health background and any concerns I had. I will be using him as my primary care doctor.
I've got to say I was a little hesitant about using Dr. Degenhardt as my regular physician since the practice is called "Sports Medicine" but I'm SO glad I did. I've been here numerous times and usually see Mikayla Nemes, PA. I've never had such thorough, attentive, and caring doctors. Mikayla would personally follow-up via phone and she stays on top of everything. I love how they recommend more holistic-esque approaches to any issues before jumping to medication. Dr. Degenhardt, Mikayla Nemes & Sports Medicine at Chelsea - ALL highly recommended!
very professional, lovely and relatable staff. this was my first visit and not only was the new patient paperwork very light, the doctor came out almost immediately to introduce himself. during my visit he had two other doctors come by and talk to me about my issue and offer their opinion. strongly recommend this place.
An excellent doctor.
He was thorough and attentive to my symptoms. He explained exactly how and what had gone wrong with my shoulders and neck. I would highly recommend Dr. Degenhardt.
Dr. Degenhardt has to be one of the most informative physicians that has treated me. He took the time to explain his thought process for the diagnosis and treatment, which I found refreshing and useful. I highly recommend him as a primary care physician and am happy to have found his practice.
This was a follow-up visit. My first appointment was about a month ago. I think this physician is wonderful. Didn't feel rushed at all. Explained everything very clearly and often asked if I had any questions. He is also very interested in integrative medicine so open to complementary as well as traditional approaches. Very caring, compassionate and a good listener. A rarity these days!
was very comforting;very detailed and helpful.
Great! Very friendly and genuine..Will certainly return!
I highly appreciate the comprehensive approach / integrative medicine Dr. Degenhardt performs. He is thorough and I feel well cared for. I had especially good experience with acupuncture treatment.
Awful bedside manner. "Diagnosed" me without doing any tests. He is more of a sports medicine guy than a general doctor.
Knowledgeable and personable, and the office is very helpful and well coordinated
Great doctor who takes his time to explain things even though i had a lot of questions. Very professional, courteous and knowledgeable. Definitely going back
Dr. Degenhardt was entirely engaged in his listening and decisive and thorough in his assessments and explanations. Exactly what one would hope for in a physician.
Very helpful, understanding and knowledgeable. Spent a lot of time getting to know my medical history and future needs for travel vaccinations. Nice front desk staff as well
Dr. Degenhardt was very nice and helpful. I've only seen him once but feel good about him being my new doctor.
Dr. Degenhardt was patient, personable, and holistic in his approach to my health. He wanted to hear my concerns and gave me a really thorough explanation, with hand-drawn diagrams, of what was going on in my body to cause certain symptoms. I've never had a physician go so above and beyond to help my understanding. I look forward to seeing him again and feel so much better knowing that I can call or schedule a visit if ever I have a concern -- a rare feeling of peace in the big city!
Extremely knowledgeable about both eastern and western medicine approaches. Rather than filling out forms, we talked about my background and Dr Degenhardt took notes. He has a very holistic approach to medicine and was quick not to treat just the symptom but to ask questions to try and understand and eliminate the cause.
Dr. Degenhardt was very through in the questions he asked during our initial visit. I really felt like he wanted to get to know about me as a patient to be able to provide the best possible care. I look forward to follow-up visits, which hasn't always been the case with doctors in the past.
Instead of filling out those annoying health history forms, Dr. Degenhardt asked them to me in person and took notes himself. He took the time to explain everything to me and made sure I understood. I never felt like he was rushing or trying to get me out the door.
It was a general physical exam but the Dr. spent a significant amount of time gathering my medical history and asking about things I didn't even realize may be abnormal or necessary to know, then pieced things together (through-ness). I'm also traveling outside the country and he was very well informed on what precautions to take as far as preventative medicine.
Dr Degenhardt is extremely knowledgable with a great bedside manner.
Embraces Western medicine and alternatives. Smart and listens well.
Excellent doctor and trusted professional.
The visit was very brief(about 10 mins), having not been to a doctor in over a decade(no insurance) I expected a few more questions about myself and less of him telling me about the other services he offers. I had to pretty much twist his arm to get him to decide to run some tests. Follow-up about test results was nonexistent. I had to call them numerous times before someone actually called me back to review my results
My first visit - no form to fill in, he asked the questions in person.
A gentlemen. Very clear in the explanations.
I will definitely recommend him for my friends
The best primary care physician I have ever had - and I've had a lot!
Professional, courteous, seems genuinely concerned and knowledgable (1st visit today). Haven't had health insurance in over 5 years. Glad I "found" him.
Routine physical, no complaints, but it felt a touch rushed.
Dr. Degenhardt is friendly, professional, thorough and knowledgable.
He was great - efficient, honest, and confident in his suggestions.
Would never recommend to anyone I care about.
The doctor is very personable and made me feel very at ease. I felt confident that he was giving me sound feedback about my health. I definitely recommend!
Dr. Degenhardt listened and addressed my concerns. He took the time to explain the course of action he thought was best. Highly recommended.
Great doctor! He was very tech savvy - our whole consultation was done on his computer instead of an old fashion pen and paper. I liked that he wanted to learn about my history and offered some great tips and insights - kind of an east meets west style.
He listens, always considers the options for non-intrusive treatment first (like complementary medicine) where relevant, without rushing for full-on Western medical warfare on your body. Smart and intuitive.
Friendly staff and excellent Physician Assistant. They appear to be up to date with all the latest 'gadgets' and a are very personable team.
Very nice, thorough doctor with a great attitude. I never felt like I was being lectured and he answered all my questions and did not make me feel rushed.
I have to say, I always go to the doctor hoping that they will help really help me out and always feel let down. Dr. Degenhardt was really an exception to this. He was extremely helpful, inquisitive, and went out of his way to find out what was going on with my ailment. I haven't met many doctors better than this. As a side note, their office appeared to be run very well and the front desk people were very friendly.
He was lovely and super-informative!
Medicine is not only a physical science but a social art as well. Dr. Degenhardt seems to practice both. He is my interpretation of what a physician should be, professional and professional. He also happens to be affable and listens well. I have had nothing but great experiences here.
Very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Would definitely recommend!
This was my first visit to the office. The check-in was very fast and pleasant. I felt very comfortable talking with Dr. Degenhardt and am looking forward to continue going to him as my Primary Care Physician. He was extremely interested in my well being and asked questions about my history. For once, I felt like a doctor was listening.
He is very nice and informative. He speaks Japanese, so it's helpful for me. I would recommend him to my friends!
Dr Degenhardt is a great. Have seen him 3 times now. His best trait is that he takes time to listen to you and is extremely patient. He builds a relationship which I think is key to have with your medical provider.
Dr. Degenhardt was awesome. Very personable and extremely intelligent. Will definitely go back to him and use him as my PCP going forward.
Overall I had a very good experience with Dr. Degenhardt. He listened to me first, allowing me to explain history and symptoms. I also really appreciate the use of technology to make the visit more efficient.
very knowledgeable and really took time to explain condition. also offered helpful advice on an unrelated issue brought up in medical history consultation.
Extremely personable, intuitive, friendly, professional, knowledgeable and an amazing listener for a doctor. One of the best physicians I've ever met.
He is so cute
I saw Dr. Degenhardt for the first time recently and I will definitely be going back. He spent a lot of time with me asking questions about my concerns and was very informative. We talked for a long time and I never felt rushed at all. The staff was friendly and helpful. I recommend him highly.
The billing process was less than satisfactory. Patient's should not be billed excessively.
he was very knowledgeable helpful and was able to answer all of my questions efficiently. very friendly and open.
Receptionists were extremely helpful and friendly. Dr. Degenhardt was extremely personable, and took his time getting a full grasp on my health background and recommending changes that should be made without lecturing me. Highly recommended!
i went to see dr. degenhardt for a tick bite and was only expecting to receive some antibiotics. however upon inquiring if i had any other issues or pain, he ended up treating a chronic shoulder/scapula/back problem that i have had for two years. he adjusted my 3rd and 4th ribs, gave me some exercises to do to strengthen my lats and sent me on my way. while i'm still adjusting to the new orientation of my ribs, i haven't had posture this great in years. i highly recommend dr. degenhardt as he utilizes the perfect mix of western medicine and eastern holistic treatments. additionally he is in office with other knowledgeable doctors with whom he consults and refers. if you're looking to get back on track, dr. degenhardt is your guy.
Dr. Degenhardt is smart, great bedside manner, practices western and some eastern medicine and appears open to new ideas. The practice is very modern in many ways: electronic records, complementary medicine etc. Very helpful staff.
