Dr. Jason Pruzansky was thorough, knowledgeable and did not keep me waiting. He said if in 2 months I'm feeling better I do not need to see him again. The practice also took my insurance!!

Great experience! Easy and fast to get an appointment, and was seen very quickly. I had a minor but nagging issue and Dr. Pruzansky was thoughtful, helpful, and efficient without being rushed. Very friendly and helpful office staff, too! Justone thing to note: no drinks in the office, so grab your morning coffee after.

Excellent doctor, very knowledgeable. Office uses antiquated check in, making patients fill out paperwork that was essentially done online via zocdoc. Also, the paperwork has PII and PHI issues.

3 1/2 months before seeing Dr. Pruzansky, I sprained my wrist and was diagnosed with a couple minor fractures and a number of torn ligaments (incl. the TFCC). I had met with a different orthopedist (who's Zocdoc profile didn't specify "wrist"),who didn't treat my injury well. Mr. Pruzansky was different in every good way. He was attentive, patient and open, thoroughly examining my wrist himself, explaining the situation thoroughly and answering my questions considerately. Mr. Pruzansky made me feel assured and attended to.

This is a late review, but better late than never (saw him almost a year ago). Dr. Pruzansky was very nice, attentive, and did not seem to rush me. Being a healthcare professional myself with an office of my own, thereare certain things I notice and I was very pleased. He was very conservative and respectful of my questions. I came in looking for a quick cure (a shot) so that I can work effectively and he actually talked me out of it wanting me to try a much more conservative approach for my hand, which actually worked well and solved my issue. Very thankful that I was able to solve this issue so easily with my wrist...I was definitely nervous about the possible treatments.

I came here for very bad pain in my left hand. I have to say that I was very impressed with the office, doctor and staff. I walked in and was greeted right away. Everyone was helpful even though they wereall busy taking calls and helping people. Zocdoc didn't send over my information in time so i had to fill everything out. After that, it was maybe a 5 minute wait and I was seen. He performed a few tests on my hands, was very thorough with his questions and then I went in for some xrays. Afterwards, he diagnosed the pain as a possible hand sprain and walked me through a few things to deal with the pain and how to take better care of my hand. If you're insurance is GHI - City of New York, it turns out that Dr Pruzansky is actually out of network (at least it was for me). They'll still see you but you'll have to wait for your insurance to send you checks to endorse and then send it over to Dr Pruzansky's office. All in all, this was a great visit.
