Verified Patient Reviews
He was very professional and informative, but I wasn't left with any after care instructions. It could also have been that I had a mini panic attack because I don't like needles - who knows. I would recommend, although the waiting time was not ideal considering I had to get back to work after the appointment.
Appreciated the clean office, the able staff and the doctor's manner. We discussed the issues and talked through next steps thoroughly. I didn't care for my interaction with the person who made my splint, but was satisfied with the outcome. O/T and P/T options were left somewhat vague, which is a problem - I could come back if I wanted, or do 4 exercises on a print out. Instead, I'm doing the 12 described by a therapist, and seeing them once a week for two months.
Dr Paksima removed my ganglion cyst and the surgery went really well. I had a speedy recovery. The only thing I wish is that he attended one of my post-op appointments as opposed to the physician's assistant exclusively. But I will be going back to him as needed.
Dr. Paksima is attentive and everyone in his office was kind and proficient at their jobs. My wait was less than 10 minutes and I wasn't left in the room waiting at all. I feel very confident in the health care I received.
Very Professional !!
He was great very patient and caring and explain my issue, yes I would recommend him to others
The staff was very helpful!
Just useless. Doesn't try to find the source of the problem, except tell me there's nothing that he could do about my pain.
Great bedside manner. He also explained things to me thoughtfully, which I appreciated, and answered all my questions.
It was excellent!
He is great!
Dr. Paksima was very informative and takes his time to explain everything thoroughly. I really appreciated that and would definitely return to him for hand injuries. The office is a bit disorganized though. I was sent rounds of forms, including on the day of the appointment, and was asked to print and fill out the forms, and to still arrive 30 minutes before the appointment time. The nurses saw me on time, but Dr. Paksima ran into an emergency so it was another hour before I saw him. The walls aren't soundproof and other doctors kept stopping into my room, confused about where their patients were. Hopefully, this was all just a one-time occurrence.
Please be prepared to wait, but once you've seen him you'll understand why he is in such high demand. He preformed a thorough examination, I never felt like he was rushing to get to the next patient. He was clear in explaining what was happening, why, and next steps. Definitely will return, completely satisfied.
Dr. Paksima was great. He is very knowledgeable and I feel confident in his expertise. I went in for a 3-month old thumb injury and he was able to quickly identify where my injuries occurred and explained it to me very clearly. He also outlined the possible treatment options depending on what is shown on my MRI. I would highly recommend Dr. Paksima to anyone suffering from joint related injuries.
Every aspect of my visit was perfect. As soon as I finished the paperwork I was called. Dr Paksima talked over all options with me and I was able to schedule my surgery for less that two weeks away. The office staff was extremely helpful and friendly.
The entire staff is courteous and professional....Dr.Paksima was wonderful in explaining everything to me and what to expect....He is very professional and I felt I could trust him totally. Very satisfied and would recommend him to my friends and family.
So far, so good, but my problem is not yet solved.
Dr. Paksima and his staff/assistants were very friendly and attentive. The whole process , from pre consultation, to x ray, to treatment, to post consultation with the physical therapist was extremely organized and smooth. In about an hour and a half, I had been seen and treated by multiple people and walked out with 2 splint devices and questions answered. I also received a followup call with related suggestions.
Don't usually do reviews, but hands down the best experience I've had in a doctor's office in NYC. EVERYONE on staff is efficient, informative, and highly-skilled. I had a finger injury that was quickly evaluated, double-checked, and treated-- literally in and out on a lunch break. Cannot emphasize enough: if you have a hand injury GO SEE DR. PAKSIMA. Simply the best.
so far so good. dr. paksima and everyone at the office were friendly and efficient. minimal waiting, including getting xrays done.
Very good ! Professional staff very respectful.
Was one of the best dr experience I have ever had. Would recommend to anyone - very efficient and friendly.
The experience was good. The doctor was very quick although straight to the point, I had no double thoughts with the diagnosis and his statements. I rate it 4 stars as I was given a wrist brace at the time of my visit, actually physically put in on my wrist , wasn`t asked if I want to use their wrist band or buy my own and was not warned that it`s billed from a separate company which is out of network. Later I received a bill for it.
Efficient, well-run office. Knowledgeable staff and Dr. Paksima, along with his PA are informative, friendly, respectful and courteous. Very good experience.
I had a great visit with Dr. Paksima and all the staff with the NYU Orthopedic group. Very professional, efficient and extremely helpful!!

So Kind and Friendly with an excellent staff!!!
everyone in the office was professional and attentive. no waiting. every step was connected by computer, they all had the info immediately.
Great Doctor, performed the operation really well, great bedside manner.
Dr. Paksima and staff were knowledgable, efficient and friendly. It cannot get better than this when you need medical help.
Professional and great bedside manner.
I liked Dr. Paksima and his staff. I was able to see him within 5 minutes of checking in/dong a quick survey of my symptoms (being in the NYU EHR system helped) and my exam was efficient; not at all rushed. I was first seen by his PA who was extremely knowledgeable, knew exactly what exercises to do with me to exploit my pain to get the best treatment and explained to me exactly what was going on in my hand. After her initial diagnosis, Dr. Paksima joined to confirm by having me do additional exercises. He fully explained the treatment and additional follow ups to set my expectations following this first treatment step. I fully appreciated that, his demeanor. All in all, I will recommend him to anyone who may need a Hand specialist/Orthopedic Surgeon in the future. I like his style, his office staff and system.
The doctor and intern did their job and relatively quickly diagnosed me. However, the wait time, paperwork and upfront process before seeing the doctor seemed extremely slow and inefficient.
The whole team, the whole experience was 5 star!
Dr. Nader is very professional, thorough and very personable. He explains everything in detail, and makes patients feel comfortable.
Really great thorough doctor, excellent bedside manner and attention to detail. I could tell that he was busy, but he was still patient and answered my questions. The appointment ended up taking about two hours, but that's because he ordered x rays and was able to review them immediately, so he ultimately saved me time since I didn't have to book another appointment, which I genuinely appreciated. His staff is also very nice and accommodating. Can't say enough good things about him.
He is a great doctor. I recomend
the doctor take care of quickly and answered all of our questions and concerns. he was also friendly and made us feel comfortable
