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.

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.

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 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).

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.

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.
