Dr. Elguizaoui was able to see me right away, and conveniently offered an evening slot, as I was coming from work. He asked a few key questions and worked efficiently to test some hypotheses. I was able to quickly get anX-ray done in the office, and will be following up soon pending the results of a pending MRI.

It was definitely worth the wait. The doctors manner is excellent. He was caring reassuring and gentle. I got a cortisone shot in my knee with little discomfort. I would highly recommend him and wish other doctors were more like him.

Samah’s a swell guy. His 74th St. office’s waiting area is a bit wild and plays the worst TV in existence (something called Page Six TV which is the a perfect chemical formulation of worst of CNN, TLC, TMZ, and HSN—all,somehow, proudly inspired by British tabloids). So bring good headphones. Once you’re with Samah though, he’ll quickly tell you what you need to know without patronizing you. Also incredibly willing to do what he can to get medical records on your behalf. Samah quickly gets a handle on how much you already know and adapts his language accordingly. So you won’t feel anything is over your head, or dumbed down.

Positives: Wait was short, doctor was prompt and professional, all of my questions were answered tactfully, xrays were done during my appointment. Negatives: Office sent my prescription to the wrong pharmacy and I was never able to correctthe problem because they failed to return some 6 calls and 2 emails. Administrative staff was impatient and rude. PT referral order cited the wrong limb.

Claimed to have had lost my (electronic) MRI which I was made to wait 6 hrs for at this doctor's hospital. I had made an appointment with him based on stellar Zocdoc reviews, needless to say I regret it. Had towait another week to get in front of a new orthopedic who is now treating my foot fracture after. Extremely disappointed in the fact that some doctors these days care more about how many follow up appointments they can get versus providing medical care.

Dr. Elguizaoui was very personable and informative during my appointment. He described everything he believed to be going on and was able to help me schedule the necessary follow-up appointments that day. He used models to show what was wrongand gave recommendations as to what I can do while waiting for follow-up appointments.

Doctor Elguizaoui is an amazing doctor. He repaired a partially torn meniscus in my left knee. Explained what was wrong, what needed to be done and made me feel comfortable through the entire process. Two months after the injury, I amstarting to ramp up the running and almost ready to play golf again. I'm very grateful for having met Doctor Elquizaoui and would not hesitate recommending him to anyone.

Great experience! Very nice facilities and all of the staff was very helpful. If you need to get X-rays before get there early cause it takes a while for them to see you, but I went strait to the doctor frommy x-ray and was seen right away. Definitely would recommend to a friend.
