This office is BUSY, but the staff is really friendly and organized. I was seen right away. Dr. Cleeman was confidentand quick, and I left feeling like I was on the right treatment plan. He was not particularly kind or patient with me, however. It seemed like he'd seen a bunch of other patients with very similar injuries to mine, and he was ready to diagnose and move on.

As if it wasn’t great enough that Dr. Cleeman is efficient, thoughtful and a great doctor, his staff is fantastic, too.There is never wait, and folks are friendly and helpful. I’ve been seeing him for a couple of years based on a referral from my GI, and I couldn’t be more pleased with my multiple appointments with him over that time for a tear in my hip and an arthritis knee. Bonus points for Spear PT being in the same space for ease.

Visit felt very rushed. He was nice enough and did address the acute issue, but there was no discussion of how I should manage my injury in the days/weeks when I needed scans, etc. I left with questions unanswered.

I was having pain in my hips and shins and decided to book an appointment with Dr Cleeman the next day, based on his great reviews. Dr Cleeman took the time to listen and understand the issues that brought me into the office and then gave clear explanations of what was happening and my options for treatment. I never felt rushed or that I was just another one of Dr Cleemans many patients, which is something you typically experience at other medical offices. On top of that, the office was clean and modern with attentive staff.

Didn’t seem very interested in learning about my history as a patient with a chronic issue. Spent tops five minutes with me. I’m sure he really did not have a solution for me but at least show some interest when you’re making hundreds of dollars an appointment.

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’m in 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 make a 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.

From the time getting off the elevator to leaving the office 35 minutes later, the quality and professionalism unmatched--could not have been any better. From the assistant at reception, the Doctor's assistant, to the X-ray technician to Dr. Cleeman courteous and very professional in appearance and manner. Dr. Cleeman took the time to explain the problem, various solutions and then recommendations.

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!
