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!

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!

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
