Dr. Cleeman is a phenomenal doctor- truly best in class. Whenever I have joint or ortho-related issues I come to him and he diagnoses and can work on a path to fixing quickly. He is super knowledgeable and approachable. Best ortho in Manhattan and I know many others who agree!

Doctor was fine. But he seemed only interested if the problem was surgical which my injury doesn’t require. He recommended PT, but wouldn’t even recommend a place for it. Basically just said go wherever because it wasn’t important to him. I’min pain, and I don’t think he took me seriously or cared. I left his office in tears - both in pain and frustration.

My first visit was very good, but then it was downhill from there. The staff is an extension of the surgeon. They are capable but as with anything, no one is perfect. So that one or two times that they makea mistake, I was it. But the problem is they make the error worse by trying to hide or lie their way thru it. At the end of the day, this is a business. The surgeon and staff are not your friends and they are not doing you any favors. My experience here was very unpleasant. Do your research before choosing any surgeon.

I really liked Dr. Cleeman. He took his time to ask me questions and give me a comprehensive exam. I've been having major knee trouble that nobody seems to have been able to figure out, including two other orthopedic surgeons. Dr.Cleeman seemed to understand my issues and gave me a course of action that made sense to me. I recommend!

Dr Cleeman was nice. My arm was in pain and he told me I had tennis elbow. He said I should wear a splint to help make it better and that there's also a drug to help with the inflammation. WhatREALLY turned me off was after I left the room to head back to reception, a woman called my name and said the doctor said I need a wrist splint and that they'll give me one right there. I figured that will save me a trip to Duane Reade so I didn't think anything of it. Then she put it on me and had me sign on a pad to confirm I have it. As I was signing, I asked her how much it cost and she told me what it was (not allowed to specify here for some reason) and it was almost 7x the amount of what they would charge at Duane Reade and Amazon. She said they'll charge insurance and if they don't cover it, I'm responsible. And oh by the way it's non refundable and I've already signed for it. The nerve! There was no time to even process what was happening! To add insult to injury, I received a receipt later that afternoon to show that I was charged a lot more than what she quoted!! For what should cost a small amount ended up costing me a whole lot more at this place. They copied my signature from my acknowledgement on the first page and put it on the following pages with the actual price! Which I never saw at the office! I hate places like this that take advantage of its patients! The people who go there are in pain and this place takes advantage of the state people are in for the bottom dollar. I felt so cheated and ripped off. I don't recommend this practice at all.

The visit to Dr. Cleeman's office was, without a doubt, the most efficient, friendly, professional visit that I have experienced in years. The office is well appointed, the staff very helpful and friendly, and Dr. Cleeman was the consummatemedical professional. Without and hesitation whatsoever, I would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic services. The visit to his office reaffirmed my belief that there are top-notch medical providers out there, despite the pressures of HMOs and ACA. Well done Dr. Cleeman and staff.

This was my first appointment with Dr.Cleeman, or any Orthopedic doctor in Astoria for that matter. Everyone was very kind and professional from the receptionists, to the x-ray technician, and of course the Doctor was a pleasure. They mademe feel comfortable and did a great job diagnosing and making me feel better by the time I left the practice. They are a group I recommend to anyone needing any type of orthopedic medical advice.

Wonderful. Friendly, efficient staff and a seamless process from start to finish. I didn't realize that I booked an appointment for the wrong type of surgeon, but Dr. Cleeman saw me anyway and made sure my wrist was ok (he doesshoulders and knees). Very satisfied with the care I got and would recommend to anyone.

Staff was very friendly, even when an eccentric patient walked up to the front desk asking who was in charge of taking care of the plants because they looked neglected. They were very tactful in handling the situaton. Dr. Cleeman wasprofessional and thorough. He made me feel comfortable and laid out all the options for my injury. I felt informed and ready to make a decision about next steps to my recovery. I would return and recommend.

I have mixed feelings about my visit. On the one hand, the staff was incredibly quick and friendly. I didn't have to really wait at all. My x-rays were done on sight very quickly too. That's very impressive, especially considering I'mused to endless wait times at Orthopedic doctors offices. Dr. Cleeman is friendly and it seems he's very respected and beloved. My frustration is that I didn't feel listened to. I felt as if my injury was "too complicated" to merit serious discussion. I felt brushed off slightly and my partner (who went with me) expressed the same frustration but we felt we just weren't being heard. Again, I know he is a great doctor and I can see why. I just didn't feel important or listened to and thus will not be returning most likely.

Dr. Cleeman was polite and professional, and spoke to me as though I were a real person- which I am, of course, but it's amazing how many doctors don't do that. I felt like he explained things well and gave mejust the right amount of information. The office staff were pleasant and seemed well-organized and on top of things. This was only my first visit but I would recommend him.
