Great experience, and really fast too. He listened to what I had to say and didn't judge any of my assumptions. Clear course of action and I'm confident that even if this one doesn't work out, he was clear about alternatives which made me confident we have a plan.

I had been plagued with back pain for nearly two months- I had been seeing a physical therapist recommended by my primary care physician, but they had not got to the root of the problem. Within minutes of seeing Dr. Neal Mesnick, he assured me that he could fix my problem, and had me set up with a chiropractor on his team. When I walked out of his office, I was not only experiencing immediate physical relief, but also mental relief, as he and his team set me up with a care plan and were able to work around my work schedule. I can't tell you how professional, courteous, and supportive he is. I would for sure recommend him!

What a pleasant surprise! Rare these days to find a doctor who took his time, educated me on causes of my shoulder pain, discussed treatment, all in a very understandable, calm and reassuring manner. Office staff was great, location excellent and the office is pleasant. I'm not easily impressed or satisfied and have more than my share of sub par doctor/medical experiences. Dr. Mesnick was a breath of fresh and air gave me world class treatment for my two sore, rotator cuffs. ++

The Dr was waiting for me.........how great is that! He was quick efficient and explained his diagnosis in language someone who is not a Dr or nurse would understand. He perscribed medicine explained how to use it and the possible side effects. No BS, straight forward and direct, as a Dr. Should be.

I had a great experience w/ Dr. Mesnick and team. First, I arrived on the wrong day, grumpy and in pain. The receptionist was very nice and Dr. Mesnick actually overheard that I had come in on the wrong day and said he can fit me in anyway. Wow, when does that ever happen? I was able to see Dr. Mesnick, then Dr. Littman (chiropractor) and a physical therapist...all on the wrong day which was entirely my fault. So big plus for being so accommodating with my error. Good service is one thing, but that shouldn't solely warrant a 5 star just because they were highly accommodating. I'm also giving a 5 star b/c I am already feeling relief from my visit. I had been in pain for a little over a month, and Dr. Mesnick and team took an approach that would help me immediately but also long term correction of the issue. So not just throwing pills at the problem, but also not saying "too bad, you have to suffer with the pain now and hope it gets better w/ PT." I will continue to go to PT for the recommended time, but if all goes as well as it has been I have only good things to say about this practice.

By far my best experience in a doctor's office in quite a while. I walked in and was seen right away. Dr Mesnick was excellent. We ended up having to schedule a physical therapy session and they had an opening an hour later, which was perfectly fine with me. But then Dr. Mesnick asked the therapist to take a later lunch and she ultimately saw me right then and there. Again, phenomenal experience, I'd recommend him to everybody!

My visit was very thorough. He quickly identified the problem, but he left no stone unturned after that and made sure his quick diagnosis was supported by a) what i told him and b) by his observations. He also proceeded to make sure my follow up was in place right away, so when i left his office, i already had a month's worth of PT in my calendar. It was all very efficient and smooth.

Such a nice guy. Very thorough and took time examining me to make a diagnosis, showing me what could be wrong using a model of the joint, explained the treatment strategy and gave me a steroid injection into my joint while humoring my pain-induced hysterics with kindness and smile. This was my first appointment with him but having seen so many drs in NYC, I could tell that he is a good doctor.

I went in with an idea of what may be causing my pain and Dr. Mesnick was kind and informative- almost immediately locating my source of pain and making a plan of action to treat it. Even worked out a consult with the onsite chiropractor and session with the physical therapist for pain management (ice/e-stim/ultrasound) the same morning. Would recommend to anyone - front desk staff was also smiling and helpful. Hoping to feel much better for my recheck in 2 weeks.

I was in pretty terrible pain, and Dr. Mesnick was able to not only see me right away but start a treatment with a follow up plan immediately. I appreciate his "let's get this fixed" attitude, and feel confident because of it I am on my way to recovery.

I found his bedside manner brusk and jarring. I saw him for a shoulder injury, and it was very tender in certain positions. When examining my range of motion, he was fast and jerky in his movements. When I pulled away from him and indicated that it was painful, he was dismissive and said "Oh, you just don't trust me." Duh, of course not -- that doesn't mean the pain isn't real. He did this to me twice; once on the original intake, and once at the midway point. I didn't return to him after that. I'm an acrobat and have experience with a range of injuries, large and small. I've also got a pretty high pain threshold. This guy just wasn't considerate. His admin staff were also extremely disorganized. They kept losing information and submitting incomplete paperwork. More headache than it was worth. I will say, however, that his sports therapists (the folks who actually did my physical therapy) were AMAZING -- which is the only reason I returned after my first appointment.

Great for back troubles, you basically get to see Dr. Mesnick, a chirophractor and a physical therapist in the same session for one copay. Just make sure when you reschedule follow-up appointmetns (I.e. I have to go back continually for physical therapy) that the the chiropractor is available the same day and can see you.

I chose this practice because it was close to the train and I couldn't handle much of a walk; I wasn't counting on just how much I would luck out. Dr. Mesnick is fantastic -- attentive, patient, and sympathetic. I left with a good understanding of the cause and source of my pain, a plan of action, and a visit to the in-practice chiropractor and physical therapist. I never had to wait for more than 10 minutes to see any one individual and everyone I encountered was professional, friendly, and incredibly helpful. When I came in, I could barely walk comfortably; when I left, I was already feeling tremendously improved. Now, one day later, most of my pain has already dissipated.
