About Miguel Maya

No co-pays Chinese Medical Herbalist Absolutely love this medicine! I am confident you will as well. I am a native New Yorker and a graduate from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in Manhattan with a Masters in Oriental Medicine - Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Herbal Formulations and Tui Na(Chinese Physiotherapy). I have been in practice for thirteen years in Manhattan. I have good success in helping to treat and control the following conditions using Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Migraines/Headaches, Fibromyalgia, Allergies, Diabetes, IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, Asthma, Lupus, Infertility, Painful PMS, Irregular Menstrual Cycles, Anxiety, Chronic Fatigue, Bells Palsy, Peripheral Neuropathy, Endometriosis ect. In addition I have a lot of experience with Musculoskeletal Injuries, both acute and chronic, such as Low Back Pain, Sciatica, Frozen Shoulder, Knee and Shoulder Pain and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Most patients come in with some sort of painful condition which in most cases begins to resolve after only a few treatments and then we get down to improving your constitution and overall quality of health! A typical treatment session focused on resolving pain will include acupuncture, sometimes with electrical stimulation, heat lamps,Tui Na(Chinese physiotherapy) to stimulate blood flow into the area along with application of herbal topical liniments for continued healing day and night.

I have been a patient of Miguel's for a couple of months, and the amount of improvement I've seen is astonishing!He really knows his stuff. The office is incredibly quiet and serene from the usually inescapable noise of the city. He is also extremely punctual, despite having a very full schedule - never had to wait more than 5 mins. Although my insurance plan does not accept acupuncture, he was nice enough to call me before my first appointment and warn me that my plan would not accept treatments, which was very considerate. I'm glad I found Miguel, because he has fixed my issue beyond my expectations!!

Such a great experience with Dr. Maya. When I walked in he gave me a snack because I hadn't eaten breakfast yet. His bedside manor was amazing - thoroughly explained the process, showed me the needle size, talked through my medical history and explained long term and short term goals/results through acupuncture. I couldn't be happier, and have already shared his information with a few interested friends. Thank you Dr. Maya, I'm looking forward to my follow up visits.

The best acupuncturist in the Tri State Area. He is intuitive, kind, professional and goes above and beyond to ensure to his clients are comfortable and improved. He also ensures all administrative tasks are handled expeditiously and efficiently. I highly recommend to others. I've seen great results in just a few sessions for a variety of issues. Thank you again!

Although I was happy with the services I received (as I posted earlier), I’m now dropping my rating down to 1 star mostly because I think the billing practices are questionable. I was initially told that my health insurance would cover my visits, and was given a reference number. I went for a few visits, then skipped a couple of months due to other obligations. When I scheduled appointments for October, I received a call from Miguel Maya informing me that my insurance didn’t pay *any* of the costs from my prior visits. I was shocked and felt really awful that nothing was paid, and apologized profusely (though I have no control over my insurance). I was told that if I wanted to go back, I would need to cover the cost on my own. I couldn’t do that but told Miguel that I would follow up with my insurance to see why they didn’t pay. As it turns out my insurance *did* pay more per visit than I was quoted for self pay. I emailed Miguel with this information and while he emailed his claims managers asking them to explain what my insurance told them, it’s been three weeks and I never received an explanation from their office. My advice: get fees quoted in writing and don’t automatically believe them if they tell you your insurance didn’t pay.

I've had previous experience with acupuncture, so I've dealt with different Doctor's styles. Dr Maya was very professional and excited to help with treating my knee pain. He was very confident in his methodology and even though I had stated that I had been to an acupuncturist before, he was very thorough in explaining what he would do and why. The office and room were very clean and felt more comfortable and like a home, which helps if you ask me. After my first treatment, I did immediately feel better and a few days later received a follow-up call from Dr Maya. We set up a plan to treat my pain and will move forward from there. 10 of 10 I would recommend!

Miguel is very personable and takes the time to explain everything that he does. I went to him for a shoulder issue, and at first it didn't seem that the treatment did anything, however a few hours later, I have noticed an improvement in my range of motion and a slight decrease in pain. I expect that this condition will continue to improve under Miguel's care. I highly recommend this practitioner based on my experience.

I've used acupuncture for many years but had a hard time finding a practitioner when I moved to NYC. Most recently, I had some digestive issues which my doctor and another acupuncturist were unable to resolve. In a desperate search, I found Miguel and booked an appointment for the next day (which was a Saturday). I felt immediate relief after my first treatment! Miguel is experienced in both acupuncture and herbal medicine, he's attentive and professional, and he clearly enjoys his work and helping people. I highly recommend Miguel!

Miguel helped me with some shoulder and back pain. I definitely felt a shift after the first treatment and it continued to improve with each subsequent treatment until the soreness had almost completely subsided. He always took all the time that was needed with each patient and I never felt rushed. His hours are such that I was always able to fit in an appointment even with my busy schedule. The appointments themselves were always relaxing and peaceful. If you have a specific health issue you're concerned about Id recommend going to see Miguel to see what acupuncture can do for you.

I have 5 bulging discs and had been going to PT for 6 weeks, which did nothing for the extreme pain I constantly experienced. After my very first visit with Miguel, I was stunned at how much better I felt. It was a great relief to know I can simply WALK without suffering. Something we do everyday had become so stressful for me. I am improving with each visit. He is quite a talented and experienced doctor. Thank you Miguel. Janet A.
