Verified Patient Reviews
The doctor was nice, friendly, and chatty, but not helpful for my situation. He assessed me quickly, gave me a 5 minute body massage, then put a electronic massager on my lower back for 30 minutes. After that it was out the door. No adjustment, or plan of action. Just come back next week for another appointment.
excellent care, lovely office staff
great visit, very thorough and great listener
Dr. Bauer did a great job assessing me. My PCP requested that I pursue a different treatment modality by a physical therapist.
I love seeing Dr. Bauer. The front desk secretary is always so nice and efficient and he is great. If it didn't cost me out of pocket, I would definitely see him more often.
He listened to my concerns and addressed them all while keeping it light and friendly. He explains what he's doing and why which is really helpful.
Dr. Bauer is professional and knowledgeable. He has excellent skills and understands the needs of patients very well. I have been coming here for few years now and he always fixes my problems. He gives proper advice about maintaining the treatment. His office staff is very caring and organized too.
Everyone's very friendly and funny. I like how Doctor Bauer explains everything to me so that I can understand what's going on with me. And he's very professional, easy to talk to.
I've been seeing Karl for back and shoulder pain for over a year now. I always feel much better after his treatment.
Great listener, very attentive!
He saw me early because my schedule was so crazy. Addressed 4 major issues quickly yet efficiently. Such a wonderful dr. Don't know what I would do without him!
very nice, attentive, great listener!
Karl took his time and was very thorough during my appointment. He asked questions and let me talk so that he could provide personalized care based on the info I shared about my lifestyle that may contribute to my backpain. He was very personable and professional and the interaction felt as though I'd been a patient of his for years vs. a new patient. I highly recommend Karl Bauer.
Dr. Bauer is amazing. I've been seeing him for over a year and am so thankful I found him! He is always super accommodating to my schedule and really cares that I feel better. Our visits are never rushed. I have a variety of injuries from gymnastics, so I've been seeing chiropractors an physical therapists since high school. Dr. Bauer is one of my faves. No doctor is ever able to adjust this specific part of my neck, but Dr. Bauer does! Seeing him makes such a positive difference in my day to day NY life.
Fantastic service! One of the best Chiropractors I've ever seen.
Seeing Doctor Bauer was one of the best doctor visits I've ever had. I was able to get in and see Doctor Bauer right away the same day. He was funny and personable, and did not rush you out the door. It was night and day before and after seeing him. Highly recommend.
The doctor is taking his time to talk about things related and unrelated to the injury, and might leave you in the room for quite some time while certain procedures are taking place. Not very efficient for busy people who want solid medical advice and fast results.
He was a very knowledgeable chiropractor and his staff was friendly and accommodating. Unfortunately his adjustments left me in such crippling pain that I could not go to work after seeing him. Called his office to find out what I should do and was told that he'd call back. I missed his call, but still called him back two more times trying to get in touch with him... His staff promised that he'd call by end of day but he never did. And he never followed up. And yes I am still in pain a month and a half later. Not sure what went wrong.
Very good experience. The initial consultation process was efficient. I felt relief after my session.
Great appointment. Arrive in complete pain and Karl made note of that by the look on my face and got right to work with me. I left feel 10x better. Will still need to go back for further appointments to get everything correct again and feeling 100 percent. But it was a huge relief for getting me through the rest of the day. I was told if I was feeling in extreme pain again by evening, that I could schedule another appointment to come back later. I was very pleased with the attentiveness and the relief from this appointment.
Lived up to all my expectations. Spent a lot of time with me on initial visit both treatment and discussion which was quite surprising. He was highly recommended by coworker and lived up to expectations.
Dr. Bauer was very professional and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
I started having an extream low back pain after sitting in the office for 11 hours a day for more than a year. I started seeing Dr. Bauer, and after a few treatment, the pain is gone. Currently, I am still seeing him once a week, to continue the treatment. The result so far has been amazing! I can't thank him enough for everything he has done. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming and they get their patients in quickly.
Ive seen Dr Bauer twice so far and am already feeling better. I had another chiro and physical therapist, though was not getting anywhere in my treatment. Dr Bauer listened to me and did a thorough adjustment, not just my neck. I was very impressed by how much time he spent with me. He's very personable and makes you feel comfortable, which is important when youre letting someone crack your neck!
He is very proficient. He knew exactly what to do to help with my lower and upper back pains.
immediate relief of one of my back issues
Dr. Karl was very friendly and knowledgeable. He asked various questions prior to the treatment. One thing that I really appreciated was his willingness to explain what was causing my discomfort. He really took his time with the whole process and I will definitely visit again!
Very pleased with the help I got from Dr. Bauer today. I don't have a lot of experience with Chiropractors and he diagnosed my issues quickly and accurately. Very empathetic of my situation even though it wasn't a serious or sever condition.
Good realistic ..informative
Dr. Bauer is incredible. He takes his time and really gets to the root of my problem(s). He even managed to heal the top of my foot when I mentioned it was hurting.
Excellent service, excellent treatment. Dr. Bauer is Very knowledgeable and personable. The only Chiropractor I would recommend.
Professional and passionate about what he does, Dr. Bauer and assistant made me feel very comfortable.
Absolutely one of the best experiences I've ever had in any doctors office, ever!
He is one of the best chiropractors in NYC... quick and easy appointments... always on time
So good. It was quick and easy and didn't have to wait. First time at a chiropractor and he made me very comfortable. His office is alos clean and in a great location. And, his receptionist is also the NICEST lady alive. I'd go back just to hang with her.
Dr. Karl Bauer was very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend - he explained all possible steps for my recovery and puts his patients first.
This was my first time visit and I was pleasantly surprised! Dr. Bauer was thorough, highly knowledgeable, and took the time to explain everything to me and answer my questions. I easily got the sense that he truly cares about his patients and wants to educate them on wellness.
Amazing! Exactly what I needed and what I was expecting. Felt better after the first visit!
This was my first time seeing a chiropractor and he was absolutely amazing! He was quick to diagnose me and then treat me. I walked in to the office with so much pain and left feeling so much better! I've already recommended him to friends :)
Great experience - very knowledgeable and helpful
Great, zero wait time! Friendly service.
Amazing vibrant knowledgeable Doctor. Took me through every step of the process. A+++ experience
It was quick and to the point. My back has not felt this great in 10 years.
I've been going to Dr. Bauer for about 3 years now. He is the best there is. He is not pushy about follow-up visits, he allows you to choose when to come back. He does not mandate any visits. His staff is incredible as well and they always greet you by name, even on day one. Whenever I need an adjustment or an emergency visit, he is always available. Highly recommend him to anyone.
Not only was Dr. Bauer a wonderful doctor but he was so kind and patient and his nurse was just as friendly and helpful!
Awesome guy! Super informative and takes his time, which I prefer. I felt like a million bucks after I left! Thanks, Dr. Bauer!!
Great appointment, will see him again.
I was pleased with the attentiveness of the receptionist. Dr. Bauer was great with his approach as well as treatment. I look forward to my future treatments
Visited Dr Bauer with chronic neck pain. He assessed the problem and rapidly set to work on sorting it out. I have been back to him a few times to be realigned and it has helped to remove the aches and pains of getting old. Strongly recommend.
As someone who has been going to chiropractors all my life in other states, I can definitely say that Dr. Bauer is a great chiropractor. He is the first and last one I'll go to in NYC. He could determine what was bothering me before I told him, and immediately adjusted me to fix it. He was very conversational, providing information and making sure I was relaxed and knew what he was doing. I had to wait less than 5 minutes, and they're open later in the day to go after work. I highly recommend him!
Fantastic experience, he genuinely cares about his patients, I'm coming back again.
Would highly recommend others go to Dr Bauer. He took the time to explain everything about my injury, provided a plan for treatment, and I'm looking forward to going back to being pain free in no time!
I could not believe how thorough he is. He took his time to ask many thoughtful questions that would help him come up with the perfect treatment plan for me. I left feeling like a completely different person after just one treatment. He will be my chiropractor for life!
I can't speak to the results of the treatment yet, but Dr. Bauer himself is wonderful! He describes himself as not one of those chiropractors who is not just "crack crack and out the door" but one who rather treats his patients like family, giving them thorough care so that they may heal. He definitely lives up to this and I'm looking forward to see him again!
Doctor Karl drove me and explained what he was doing trough all the visit. He has magic hands and people in his office are very nice and smily.
Dr. Bauer was very attentive and thorough with his exam. I came to his office with fairly painful neck/back pain and left already feeling better.
Went in because of back and neck pain, and I've been going every 2 weeks since! He's a great chiropractor and their staff is kind and always helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone!
Great visit! I've never been to a chiropractor before but it was worth the trip. Dr. Bauer explains absolutely everything as he goes along so that I could better understand my spinal health and why he does what he does.
I went to see him while in serious pain, and even after the first visit I was able to stand up more. I will continue to see him.
Very personable and professional. Would recommend Dr. Bauer to others.
Highly recommend, really cares about his patients.
Dr. Bauer was excellent. I had my first visit and was extremely impressed by his methods. I had a lot of pain prior to coming in and was skeptical on how the visit would go due to prior experiences with different chiropractor. Dr. Bauer was so kind and really cared about what was going on. He did manipulations right in the first appointment. I left his office feeling so much better and I can't wait to go back.
Dr. Bauer is an absolute class act. Very approachable, kind and dedicated. He really takes the time to work through any issues you're having. The wait is never more than 10 minutes and I always leave feeling better. The receptionist is also a sweetheart which is a great thing. I give them my highest recommendation.
The visit was awesome, it was a best experience I've ever had at a doctor's office. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. He talked me through everything and made sure I was feeling comfortable. Highly recommend!
It was my first experience at a chiropractor and Dr. Bauer was willing to take a little extra time and effort to help me with my neck problems despite being short-staffed. Not only that, but he walked me through the entire process and explained everything to help me better understand everything that he was doing to help me. Going that extra mile and being incredibly helpful, I will definitely be back!
My experience with Dr. Bauer was excellent. I strained my neck really bad to the point where I couldn't even turn my head to the left. He made sure that I treated this injury properly. I was able to get an appointment that day with him and he worked on me for a long time. I came in the next day and he worked on me for a while again and ended up coming in 2 more times after that. He isn't a one and done type of chiropractor. He makes sure you are properly treated and adjusted and he does an excellent job. I highly recommend him.
Doctor Bauer is a really nice guy that actually listens to you and explains what he's doing. I've been to a few chiropractors over the years and he's by far the best.
Efficient and friendly. Great experience.
Dr. Bauer made me a believer in Chiropractic care. His easy touch and manner helped me to relax enough so that i was able to get through the therapy and start the healing process. Thank you Dr. Bauer Sidney
Dr. Bauer - was very attentive, asked questions and was immediately involved in my condition. Very personable and would recommend to others who are seeking alternative options . I have a lingering back pain due to car accident, and will be going back weekly for treatment. Thank you
I was seen right away and Dr. Bauer did a great job walking me through the whole process and explaining each step. He was also quick to offer excerises and tips in-between visits, which I really appreciated.
Genuine passion. Surprising level of care in a lucrative industry that misguides many.
Dr. Bauer truly listens to your concerns, you will never be rushed or offered services you don’t need, office is clean and his staff is very accommodating and super friendly.
Really cared! Great guy and I feel so much better now after having an adjustment! He really knows his stuff.
Hey was incredibly skilled, knowledgable, and friendly!
Dr. Bauer listened to my concerns, made adjustments and recommended exercises to help with my neck pain. He's great!
Great guy, very thorough, explains to you what / why he is doing something. Perfect for a first time chiropractic patient!
He's prompt, friendly, and most important of all, great at what he does. A visit with Dr. Bauer always entails great bedside manner, information, friendly conversation and an excellent adjustment. Highly recommended! Awesome nurses and office staff as well.
Very helpful and attentive. I didn't feel like I was being rushed in and out. The doctor really took his time to help me. I was also seen almost immediately, even though I arrived a bit early. I think I've found my new chiropractor. Will definitely come back.
Dr. Bauer was great, friendly, and knowledgable. He was attentive and explained every step of each procedure he performed. Looking forward to my next adjustment.
What an amazingly personable guy. He took as long as my problem needed, over the appointment time. Not charging any extra. Great bloke - good manner
Amazing very comfortable, guy is like a primary care doc, psychologist, and chiropractor all in one, great experience !!!
He was very professional. It was an enjoyable experience. I have definitely found my new chiropractor.
He was excellent. Knows his stuff and how to treat neck and shoulder issues. Will def be back
Dr. Bauer is great! I had a taxi accident that resulted with pinch nerves, herniated discs, extreme stiffness, headaches and limited range of motion. My pain level went down significantly after 1 session, my lower back feels like brand new, and I can feel my range of motion is improving. So many places in Manhattan treat the patient like a number but I could tell that I was at the right place when Dr. Bauer explained throughly his strategy to my recovery from the injuries. He is really passionated about what he does, and genuinely wants to help his patients. The office has a great, calm vibe and his secretary is really helpful. Truly a 5 stars doc!
I've been going to Dr. Bauer for an year and my neck pain has improved a lot. Last year my pain had gotten so sever that it was impossible to function normally. Dr. Bauer diagnosed me, relieved the pain with in a few visits. Most importantly he gave me a non evasive solution that really works. For the entire year, I am rarely in pain and I am a much healthier person. His office staff is well organized and very friendly. No wait time is a big plus of visiting Dr. Bauer. I highly recommend Dr. Bauer and his team.
Dr. Bauer is the friendliest, most accommodating doctor I've been to. I came in after I'd thrown my back out, nervous because I'd never been to a chiropractor before. He walked me through everything very carefully and explained what he was doing so I could understand. After the very first spinal readjustment, I immediately felt lighter on my feet, with less pain. It was really helpful. I continue to see Dr. Bauer even after my injury went away.
Great doctor and a nice guy - really knows his stuff and listens well. Always sees me quickly with practically no wait time. I've gone several times and will definitely continue to do so in the future. Highly recommended!
Super helpful. Really knows his stuff.
Very polite & takes to time to make sure you are properly taken care of. Excellent job on my neck & back pain, i am no longer in pain.
Dr Bauer has very strong hands and knows his stuff - he helped me with a sprained ankle and with resetting my back / neck. The office is very friendly.
What I liked the most is that he explained why I have the pain in a way that make sense to me ... I have back pain .. The pain reduced significantly immediately after the session ..
Excellent professional, best chiropractor I've ever been to: thorough, informative, great bedside manners.
he is the best in NYC...always go to him....amazing and so nice and calm....I am a former show jumper with a terrible back and he is amazing...the best ever....
Based on one visit, highly recommended.
Knowledgeable, attentive, and kind. Within one visit he decreased my pain level significantly. The best chiro in the city.
I was in a tremendous pain. After the 2nd visit, I was able to spend my weekend skying. Thank you so much, Doctor Bauer!
This was my third time visiting Dr. Bauer. Prior to him, I had never been to a chiropractor before so I didn't really know what to expect. Dr. Bauer and his staff really get to know more about you as a person and in turn makes you feel very comfortable at the office. I've left every appointment feeling like a new person and able to move my bones/joints more freely. I would recommend him to anyone!
Very personable guy - great visit, thank you!
Dr. Bauer is a very caring, personable, professional, chiropractor. Went in for lower back pain. Felt much better after my adjustment. Liked the fact that he didn't try and push multiple sessions off the bat. I will definitely go back and recommend him to anyone. He was very gentle with the adjustment. His receptionist Nancy was very nice as well. The office is nice and clean.
Amazing. I walked pain free for the first time in years after leaving his office!
Great First Visit, Definitely Coming Back :)
He is the best.
Really great experience. I will continue to see Dr. Bauer.
Very good...going back again!
Really knowledgeable and personable as well. Very good at what he does. I felt much better after my first visit.
I carefully read reviews and then made my appointment with Dr. Bauer. There was no wait and he took his time listening to my reasons for the visit (low back pain L5 S1 herniation). No he didn't cure it in one visit but he really got things to loosen and ease up. Could not have done more in one visit and I will be back next week for sure. Got a head start on my New Years Resolutions to start taking better care of myself and get more active. This was the best thing I could do towards that goal. Highly recommended.
Dr. Bauer is amazing! A seasoned professional who takes pride in his craft and really cares about his patients. After a session with Dr. Bauer, you feel like a whole new person.
Great doctor, recommend him to all my friends. Patient, never rushes you, takes the time to explain and answer your questions.
I've been going to chiropractors since I was a year old. He's very good and really cares for you. It's a small office and he schedules his time well, so you'll be in and out.
Excellent felt better right away!!!
I have found my Chiropractic soul mate! Dr. Karl Bauer is absolutely amazing, knowledgable and professional. He addressed every single one of my issues and I walked out of my first visit today feeling brand new all thanks to him! Bruni is welcoming, efficient and feels like a long lost best friend to me. Dr. Bauer, you have gained yet another fan and long-term patient!
He is nice and good at what he does. After two adjustment I got a lot better, and havent needed to go back for almost 2 months.
Very professional & easy to talk to. Front Desk staff was wonderful also. Overall great experience
got a last minute appointment, have never been to a chiroprachtor but had some back pains that wouldn't go away. Chose him because of his great reviews and wan't disappointed. Walked me through the entire process, professional and just a really nice guy.
Down to earth, passionate about his work and takes pride in it. Very knowledgeable and took the time to listen to my issues and recommend a course of treatment, as well as things I can do on my own. The adjustment itself felt really great! I went in with a sore, stiff neck and definitely noticed an improvement when I left. Really positive experience.
He was very professional and explained everything in a clear way. What I liked the most was that he didn't try and impose anything that was not needed. He saw me right away and by the time I was done, I was feeling 100% better. Highly recommended. His staff was great too.
Dr. Bauer was friendly, personable and explained what he was doing as he was doing it (I'm not a regular visitor to a Chiropractor).
Extremely professional and courteous. He takes the time to learn the back story of your pain and provides additional means and techniques to supplement chiropractic adjustments. Very passionate for the work that he does and always seems to be striving to reach the next level of practice.
My visit was great and everything I expected. I came in and he addressed my problem. Very patient and communicative. Spent time working on the problems I was facing and explained how to go forward. He is a great listener and is interested in hearing what you have to say. Can't say that for everyone. This was my first visit but will definitely keep him in my books for any issues that arise.
Dr. Karl saved my life! ok, not quite but almost! Saved me persistant back and neck pain which hardly allowed me to sleep and interfered with everyother activity of daily living! Have referred many patients to him.
Very patient and communicative. Spent a lot of time with me and helped my aching back.
Very knowledgeable about martial arts which helped with my injury. Patient, detailed in his explanations and a very nice person. A+
He was very kind and thoughtful. I was in a lot of pain and he saw me right away. After seeing Dr. Bauer, the pain was gone and it didn't come back. I was traveling and it was a blessing to find a chiropractor that could help me. I will definitely go to see him again if I'm in pain in NYC.
Karl is very good listener and really wants to hear about what has brought you to his office. He asks lots questions and takes the time to really consider your history of injury or issues. He is also very clear about his recommended course of treatment. This was my first visit but I highly recommend him in all categories and more.
Had a very pleasant experience. Will be going back as he isn't the type of chiropractor that instantly tries to convince you of the need for 2-3 treatments/week, for as long as he sees fit. Gave me good, workable exercises to do in order to strengthen parts of my back that may need it. Gentle, but effective, very concerned for my well being and experience. Chatty, very into this work, and a good chiropractor. Great job.
Will definitely be back.
Dr. Bauer found out immediately where my pain was and worked on it right away.
I was worried during my first visit (I had never seen a chiropractor), but Dr. Bauer was great and not too aggressive. I saw immediate improvement in the area he was treating. He is extremely nice and explains his technique, which made me feel at ease. The receptionists are also great.
Dr. Bauer was very good in his approach. He knows his stuff. Thankful to have a skilled Chiropractor in Manhatten.
Dr. Bauer is fantastic. He spent time to explain and educate prior to treatment.
He seems knowledgeable. Took the time to hear what my pain was and what lead to it. Told me when something might hurt, and told me all the steps he was going to work on.
He was personable and very knowledgeable. He was able to effect more change in one visit than I have experienced with other Chiropractors in a year. I highly recommend him.
The actual appointment felt very rushed and it seemed like he was trying to get through as many patients as possible.
I don't remember much other than that I didn't want to return. It was a while ago. I remember the office being dingy.
I think Karl is great. He very knowledagble and extremely funny. He explains everything and doesn't leave anything out when giving you his recommendations.
Highly recommend this doctor! He gave me more color around the role of a chiropractor and what we would accomplish with the visit. He also patiently answered all of my questions.
Great experience. He fixed things I didn't know I needed fixing. I will definety see him on a regular basis.
It was exactly what I expected- diagnosis and that the getting better is progressive not immediate. I have been to other Chiropractors so I didn't require a full outline of what a Chiropractor does for me. Dr. Bauer was understanding of this and only informed me of what we were doing and steps we would take over the next few weeks.
I have been going to Chiropractors for years, and on my first appointment with Kark Bauer I was hooked. He was unpretentious, knowledgeable, friendly and listened to what I wanted/how I felt. I am returning again next week for a follow up.
The service I received was superb! This was my first time with a chiropractor and he made me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Karl.
Very calming environment, nice facility with super friendly staff. The doc really took time to understand what was going in with my body
great experience I highly recommend. Best chiropractor I have ever been to, hands down.
