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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
