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!

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.

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.
