Dr. Echenique was thorough, knowledgeable, and a great guy!
I have a sprained ankle and need an MRI. i was told i would get a call for an MRI appointment within 24hrs. Its been two weeks they rarely answer the phone and my insurance says they never received any request for an MRI. Im in so much pain this is unacceptable.
The doctor completely explained to me the problem and what needed to be done and he took care of me.
Dr Echenique was friendly and made the whole session pleasurable. Highly recommend
Very friendly and informative!
Friendly, personable and fast!
Dr Echenique is very professional and courteous. He took the time to listen my concerns and did not rush the visit. A plus, he is fluent in Spanish as well.
visit was good, but they didn't recognize the Zocdoc appointment right away, so I end up waiting extra time. Make sure you check with them.
Very nice guy. I found him to be very thorough. Would go back.
Very down to earth and attentive doctor, took the time to explain my condition and treatment options.
Crowded office, but not too bad of a wait time (usually that means it's a good place). Very professional staff. Glad I chose them!
He was very patient and considerate. He knew what the issue was and gave me possible ways to go about the resolution.
Dr. Enchique was friendly and patiently answered all of my questions.
i appreciate how thorough he is and i was really impressed how i was attended to right away!
He was very professional and friendly. Answered all my questions in an easy and understandable way.
Dr. Jose E. is always great. I was originally seeing Dr. Gelber who was freat too. Dr. J. E. Has wonderful bedside manner. Very kind. The office was busy today but he still took his time with looking at my knee. I had an ACL Tear. He also is very good about making sure i was getting everything I needed from his assistant. He was quick today but for me it was only a followup and didnt require much. He shook my hand upon greeting me and leaving me. He totally understands the little polite things such as handshakes, speaking slow and answering questions thoughfullu. Wonderful doctor! Me and my husband think he is the best we have ever worked with.
What I take away most from my visit from Dr. Echenique is that he listened to me.
Dr. Jose Echenique was extremely kind. He spent a nice amount of time with us given the post op appointment. He speaks very clear and looks directly at you. He is patients and as a woman, I felt comfortable with him and lifting my dress so he could see where I had the surgery. I was very impressed at his ability to be so thorough and ask questions of me without making me feel like I am on trial. Very good, kind and professional space as well. The staff is very knowledgable and kind as well.
Was very polite but seemed overall disinterested. Did not even examine me. Listened to me speak for a few mins. Didn't do much problem solving with me.
Such a good doctor. Excellent bedside manner. The office staff were all great. Facility itself was really nice and spotless!
Recomendó esté doctor por su amabilidad, gentileza, dedicación, positivismo,claro, directo y sobre todo me escucho atento, y hablo muy bien en español. Gracias Dr.Jose Echenique! : )
Very short wait, he was very attentive and pleasant and thorough. Very confident I will recover from my injury soon with his plan of action.
Nice guy. Took his time and explained things. Couldnt ask for a better experience.
First my 9:00AM appointment was rescheduled for 9:30AM without my consent and very last minute. I then waited for an hour to be invited into a room, and an additional 45 minutes to finally be treated. All I needed was to be read some results and receive a shot. I probably spoke to the doctor for a total of 4 minutes the entire time I was there. This office, although courteous, is clearly only occupied with stuffing as many people into the same time slot as possible. The doctors hop in, talk to you for a few seconds and are visibly trying to get out of the room as soon as they can. Thankfully my ailment wasn't very severe because I would not trust that I'm recieving adequate care and consideration at this establishment.
Dr Echenique was incredibly attentive. He recommended that I get a second opinion and was very helpful in the process of helping me find another specialist. I would highly recommend him!
Dr. Enchenique and his staff are very curteous and friendly.
Dr. Echenique is a well trained expert in his profession
It was great, a good Doctor who paid attention to my situation.
Very pleasant and professional.
Dr Echenique is a combination of all the best qualities you would look for in a Doctor. Knowledgeable, expertise in diagnosing, on target with course of treatment (which is critical), very efficient with your time, communicates clearly and makes sure his patients understand their condition and options, is warm and genuine; you know he sincerely cares about what is in the best interest of his patients. What more could you want?
Everything was great, until I received the bill for x rays. I was told they accept Emblem/GHI when I asked the x ray tech. They do accept Emblem/GHI however they are out of network. What? Received a bill I am not too happy with.
He was professional and understanding to my pain.
Loved him. He was great at explaining everything to me, giving me options and has a good sense of humor and excellent bedside manner. Highly recommended.
I went to Dr. Echenique because I was impressed with his high ratings. I was not disappointed, he and his staff are very professional, efficient and courteous.
I was pleasantly surprised at the efficiency and friendliness of both the staff and doctor. Everyone was wonderful. The office is beautiful and I will definitely recommend Dr Echenique to all my clients and fellow runners!
Dr Echenique was very courteous, professional, and efficient. He was thorough with my pre-op and the ACL surgery itself last week. He answered my questions thoroughly. Highly recommend!
He is the most pleasant and attentive doctor I have ever met.
well I did not see Jose Echenique, MD. I was told he does not deal with the hands. I was set up to see Dr. Mark Mohrmann. I have no clue what he looks like. I was handled by a P.A named Rebecca. She was very nice but looked a little overwhelmed. The waiting room is clean but I did notice after 9:30 the place got packed. At this time I am unable to really give a good review just yet. My experience was more registration and giving information to the P.A.
Best run dr office I've ever been to and felt very comfortable with the dr who listened to my issues and didn't feel like I was being rushed out the door.
The doctor was very helpful, knowledgeable and patient. His staff was great as well!
He was very helpful in diagnosing the issue and working with what I felt comfortable doing for treatment. He laid out my options and talked about the pros and cons of each. Highly recommended.
I've never waited more than five minutes to be called from the waiting room here, whether I come in the middle of the afternoon or snag their last appointment of the day. Everyone at the office is warm and knowledgeable, and they all seem to genuinely enjoy spending their time with their coworkers — unfortunately a rarity in New York. As for the level of care, I'll say that Dr. Echenique is the third surgeon I've seen for my shoulder injury, and I feel like Goldilocks having found him after the first surgeon didn't want to do anything and the second one wanted to rush me into surgery practically the next day for a procedure that I've since learned would not have addressed my main issue at all. After a few visits and injections to see if we could solve my issue without surgery — and help point to the proper type of procedure — Dr. Echenique finally recommended a procedure that I feel comfortable with, all while explaining the possible risks and benefits of each course of action. I've appreciated his patience and willingness to help me learn more about the anatomy behind my injury as I try to make what is honestly a big medical decision.
This is a great little office. The front desk are super helpful and friendly, as are the assistants. I came here twice and both times Dr. Echenique gave me as much time as I needed and answered all my questions. I highly recommend him if you have a sports injury.
Great experience with Dr. Echinique. Super nice staff and facility. He was extremely patient, knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions. I would highly recommend him to newbies looking for an orthopedic surgeon. The location is also convenient. The only constructive feedback I have is the waiting area. It is close to the entrance which leaves room for a draft when it's cold.
It was my first time to this office after a recommendation from a family member. All initial patient questionnaire/insurance forms can be submitted through Zocdoc to help speed up the sign in process, definitely a plus. The front desk staff was courteous and professional. Dr. Echenique was very thorough in his Q&A of my issue and I was in and out with a follow up plan in place in about an hour. So far so great!
You won't find many doctors with a bedside manner like Dr. Echenique. Highly recommended.
Seen very quickly, thorough job by both the PA and the doctor
Excellent care in a state of the art facility. The doctor took the time to explain my condition, answer my questions and go over all of my treatment options.

Dr. Echenique is one of the most thorough doctors I've ever interacted with. His knowledge of my knee problem was very detailed and he knew exactly what to look for. He took care to explain everything to me in a patient way.
Loved everything about this office!! Staff were super friendly and the Dr. was amazing. I highly recommend him.
Caring, attentive, awesome doctor. I was really messed up and they took great care of me
Dr. Jose Echenique was great. Very attentive. Answered all of my questions and concerns and was very informative. He didn't rush through anything and made sure I obtained all of the answers that I needed.
He understood my problem, asked the appropriate questions, he and the PA spent a lot of time with me. They gave me options and listened to my concerns. I left understanding the prognosis and what I had to do. Office was very close to subway.
Dr. Echenique was quick, candid, and precise in his treatment recommendation around a fracture I suffered. The office in general was superb as well: intake with the PA was done almost as soon as I arrived, x-rays were ordered and executed quickly, and those images were ready for review in minutes. Highly recommended all around!
Dr Echenique was very professional and very pleasant.I.He listened to my concerns, examined me thoroughly and explained what was the problem and what the treatment would be.He is a very good doctor and I would recommend him friends and colleagues.
He is very nice, kind and professional. I would love to recommend you.
So wonderful! Definitely made me feel comfortable and answered all my questions.
I can't possibly say enough great things about Dr. Echenique! I went into see him for chronic neck and back pain that I have been having, and I was very apprehensive about the visit because I was in a lot of pain and even more so because some doctors don't have the best bed side manner or are very quick and/or dismissive- however he couldn't have been more wonderful! Dr. Echenique put me at ease right away. He let me express all of my symptoms, concerns and questions. He was very patient, informative and excellent at explaining everything so I could understand it. He was also very comforting and thorough. I had a great experience with everyone being very kind and professional - from the front desk, to the x-ray technician, to his nurse/PA, to the doctor himself. Excellent experience all around. I know that I am in great hands there.
Dr. Echenique had a great bedside manner, but more than that, he took the time to explain the parts of the knee and point out specifically in the X-Ray and sonogram photos what we were looking at and what we were looking for. He was very thorough and patient with my questions as well.
I've been dealing with an ongoing knee issue for >10 years; orthopedic surgeons had referred me to rheumatologists, and vice versa. I even had a prior knee surgery that made matters much worse. Dr. Echenique was humble, intelligent, patient, and thorough, and most importantly (in my particular case) provided me with insight no other physician had.
He was professional and made me feel comfortable
I haven't seen a doctor since before college and Dr Echenique seemed more like a friend than the doctors of my childhood.
I was able to get a same day appointment, which for an orthopedist was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. There was a delay in being seen because the receptionist forgot to check me in. Other than that, everyone one was professional and courteous. Dr. Echenique answered all of my questions and took the time to educate me about my options. I highly recommend him and his practice.
Dr. Echenique is truly unique in the world of doctors, and I've been to plenty in my lifetime, in that he always conveys and authenticity that for me as his patient is crucial to my trust in him as a diagnostician as well as his very personable and rarely have I seen a more instantly likeable physician that I knew I was in good hands. He was thorough regarding all aspects of my diagnose , treatment, and most importantly for me, because I ask a lot of questions as I am very curious being a teacher myself of biology and chemistry , he took the time to answer all of my questions without making me feel like I was taking up too much of his time, which is truly rare in the majority of the medical profession. I would recommend him to anybody for anything regarding any issues with your body that require the specification of an orthopedist and or surgeon. Everyone on staff is genuinely pleasant and gives you the feeling that they are only there to serve you, and treat you like the most important person during the time they are with you. Awesome!
He was a very nice and answered all of my questions. His PA was fantastic. She gave me an injection into my joint and I didn't feel a thing.
Saw him for rotator cuff. Very pleased with the visit. Explained all the options and the treatment. Very down to earth, and knowledgeable - with no condescending attitude.
Professional, courteous & efficient but thorough.
He was the consumate professional, pleasant respectful and knowledgeable
Everything about my appointment was handled expertly. I've been to many Doctors throughout my life and he and his staff made me feel welcomed, calm, confident in my Doctor, and every question and concern I had was answered. I am healing rapidly and know that I received the best treatment. Highly-qualified, highly-rated, and highly recommended! Thank you.
Dr . Echenique was empathetic. He explained my diagnosis clearly and concise.
Very professional, with explanations clear and simple... He was sure that I leave the office with un understanding of my problem and its solution....
