**Dr. Neuman primarily sees patients with knee or shoulder problems.**
I am an Orthopedic Surgeon fellowship trained in Sports Medicine and arthroscopy. I have a wide spectrum of treatments as a Sports Medicine physician, whether one suffers from early arthritis, a soft-tissue injury or broken bones.
I have an additional interest in preventative Orthopedics. Whether it is clarifying reasons as to why a person may suffer from shin splints or overuse wrist and elbow conditions, the discussion will include how to prevent recurrence once the injury subsides. I believe in the US Heart Association's view on weekly exercise and maintaining a healthy exercise regimen. In addition, proper diet and weight-consciousness are important aspects of a persons' life. Living in moderation can lead to a healthy, productive life. Finally, there is a place for anti-inflammatory medications, vitamins and neutraceuticals for the repair and maintenance of bones and joints. I believe in using Calcium and Vitamin D supplementation therapy for those suffering from fractures. I am an advocate of bisphosphonate therapy for maintenance and structural integrity of the skeleton in those diagnosed with osteoporosis. I am a proponent of "The Bone and Joint Decade."
Verified Patient Reviews
It is not a professionally managed place. They don't care about zocdoc scheduled time, they always prepone the appointment at the last moment and you wouldn't be able to manage your pre-set up other priorities. Most disappointing is once you reach there, you have to wait minimum 1 hour (my 2 time experience). First time I waited 2+ hr. Last time, I waited 1.5 hr and then dr talked to me for only 2 mins. Then I waited 1 more hr and then his assistant saw me for 15 mins. I won't recommend this place, I am not sure about other places this soctor sits.
He was very thorough, and took the time to explain everything to me, and answer all of my questions. He was great, and you can tell he is great at what he does. It made me feel more at ease going into surgery with him.
Dr. Neuman was fantastic, very polite, and patient. He took his time explaining my knee injury, and how he would repair the injury through surgery, and the expected recovery time.
Pleasant staff. Dr. Was very knowledgable and professional. Listened to my complaints and cares and addressed all my needs. Highly recommend this Dr.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr.Neuman. The staff was awesome. They got me in quickly and Dr. Neuman was very helpful!!
Dr. Neuman was very personable, professional and thoroughly (and patiently!) answered all of my questions. I appreciate his later office hours as well as the amount of time he devoted to my care during the visit. His staff were very helpful.
It was a pleasure to be seen by Dr. Neuman and his staff. He was really professional and very concerned about my health and injuries. I would definitely recommend this doctor. The staff was friendly and very helpful. His office staff were in communicative with me in regards to any questions that I had at all times.
Long wait and not a professional office. Communication after the appointment was lacking. Not too impressed although everyone was friendly and doctor was nice.
I started seeing Dr. Neuman in early may for a knee problem. I visited his brooklyn heights office, which leaves much to be desired...it was the size of a large closet- the "waiting room" was about 4 folding chairs facing the blank wall 2 feet opposite. there were teenagers sleeping on the floor in the hall, but the administrative staff seemed friendly, if not disorganized. i waited about 20 minutes to be seen. Dr. Neuman took me into the "exam room" which was a 10 x 10 (and thats being generous) room piled floor to ceiling with patient files in boxes. Dr neuman's desk was about 4 of these boxes stacked on each other with a laptop sitting on top. my exam was perfunctory- he didn't have me change into a gown, so he couldnt directly visualize my knee, he felt it through my jeans and then measured my leg lengths and concluded that he didnt see anything wrong. I told him that i was training for a marathon and that i could barely run due to the pain i was feeling. He told me to stop running and have an MRI and come back in 6 weeks. I had the MRI and repeatedly called the office for my results and was told he would discuss them with me when i came in for my follow up. Finally the day arrived for my follow-up. I was anxious as i missed running and had a few races coming up that i was hoping to get the all-clear to run. When i made it to his office i was informed by the chiropractic office staff that he only rented a space from them and that he was not there that day. they assured me that i was not the first person to come in with a scheduled appointment that day. I called the main schedulers phone number (its a cell apparently) and was told that he was in his bronx office that day and that I must have been mistaken. when i told her i had the card she had written out for me she said that she noticed in the computer a note on my appt that said i requested to move my appointment to the following week, when he would be in the brooklyn office. I told her that was not possible and also that the chiropractors office told me i was not the only one to come in that day looking for him she said "im human, i make mistakes" I still have not been able to get the results of my MRI, still have knee pain, and now have to find a more reliable physician. This office is a disgrace and the service is terrible. Avoid this practice if you value your time and quality health care.
Dr. Neuman was patient and listened to all my concerns during the consultation. I felt that he was thorough in his examination, and provided an accurate diagnosis.
Dr. Neuman was very helpful and his billing staff was able to secure insurance authorization for my MRI. I then re-visited to have him interpret the MRI findings and recommend a hip specialist for me. Elizabeth Cruz, who runs his office, is truly a gem. She is extremely helpful, friendly, and eager to make things as easy as possible for the patient. I fear that she is under-appreciated, so I made sure to tell her and the doctor how much Elizabeth adds to the practice. NOTE: 1) Be sure to bring cash, as Dr. Neuman doesn't accept cards. 2) Make sure you get the correct address for your appointment - he has several offices and it's easy to get the wrong one (ZocDoc doesn't help in this respect). Make sure you have the office phone number and Elizabeth's number in case of mix-ups.
Wait time is terribly long! Will give it one more chance before going to a different doctor. I cant be seating waiting for over 50 minutes if I have a confirmed appointment. Once you get to see the Dr it all feels terribly rushed so make sure to ask all questions fast before he moves on to the next patient. Dr Neuman himself seems like a good Dr, his staff should arrange schedule better so that he is able to spend adequate time with each patient.
Dr. Neuman was great. Very professional and you can tell that he knows what he is doing. I would definitely go back to him and I would recommend him to my friends with sports-related injuries.
Professional and pleasant.
Very nice manner and agreed to see me despite the appointment not getting in their hands.
Very friendly and concerned during my examination. Staff behind the counter seem distracted but Dr. Neuman himself made up for it.
very professional. nice office. good personality. listened to me and didn't rush me out of the office
Good doctor. Efficient and courteous. Clientele seemed very PI/workers comp so wouldn't characterize as sports medicine type of orthopedics. Cash-only policy is a bit ghetto as is office.
Highly impressed. Affable, courteous, professional and concerned are just a few words that come to mind.
He made an outgoing personal phone call to make dinner plans while viewing my MRI. I was not impressed.
Dr Neuman was professional and explained my issues well. I just wish the staff was a little more professional and friendly. The waiting room was sort of like a circus, with people having fights on their cell phones and yelling. Not what I would expect from a doctor's office, but then again, this is New York health care!
very nice staff -- really made an effort to get me in and make me feel welcome
