Dr. Dermksian was terrific! I was seen sooner than my original appointment time and he came in the room right away. He seemed very confident and answered all of my questions very thoroughly! It was the fastest I have ever seen a Doctor. I’m doing a followup MRI to confirm his findings but if those come back clear then he diagnosed me 100% correctly. I will be able to determine if that is the case once I get my MRI results. He was a very good choice for me. Will be seeing again!

I've been seeing Dr. D for well over a year with a very specific ongoing knee and leg injury. He has always seen new right away, sits down and talks with me firstly, asking how I'm feeling overall, and then we get to the issue at hand. We have talked about and utilized all forms of treatment from shots to physical therapy and now consulting on actual surgery. Dr. D always opts for the least invasive of treatments until it no longer works or until I dictate what could be or should be next. His bedside manner is always warm, comforting and I appreciate his expertise along with his caring. His staff is also very nice, always kind and helpful. Having an orthopedic surgeon in the family, and I trust him with my life, I would also with Dr. D!

Dr. Dermksian was fantastic. I was seen immediately, got an x-ray promptly, and waited less than five minutes for the results. Dr. Dermksian was thorough yet prudent in his diagnosis, and gave me various treatment options, as well as requested my input on what made me most comfortable. I highly recommend him for any ankle, shin, or foot injuries!

Most of the physicians I’ve had in New York rush through the patient visits due to scheduling patients back to back. This results in dismissive bedside manner and unnecessary follow up visit when it is possible to have things checked up on an initial visit. However, Dr. Jeffrey really took time to listen to my medical concerns and was very thorough even though I was 30 minutes late to my initial pre-surgical consultation. I am looking forward to proceed with Dr.Jeffrey.

Background / Came in with a possible fractured toe. I had already gone to UC and was told to follow up with a specialist. Dr. Dermksian was excellent- thorough exam, knowledgeable, and answered patiently my every question on how to proceed next to heal my injury. I felt very comfortable and at ease with the whole visit, never rushed. His bedside manner is straight-to-the-point, which I greatly appreciate (as I was in no interest to make small talk with such an injury weighing on my mind). Would highly recommend!
