Definitely a positive experience. In the past I've found orthos to be very rushed and not give me enough information. This was not the case with Dr. Anthony. He was very friendly and professional, reassuring, answered my questions and gave me enough information to understand my condition. Hopefully there isn't a future need for me, but if so, I wouldn't hesitate to schedule an appointment with him.

Dr. Anthony's demeanor communicates immediately how kind and caring of a doctor he is. Although he wasn't able to directly assist with my situation, he made me feel very comfortable during my appointment and gave me his professional opinion as well as a referral to another doctor better suited for my needs. Thank you, Dr. Anthony and to the lovely office staff!

Couldn't speak more highly of the doctor and the office. Appointment was scheduled for 10:15. I arrived at 10:00. They called me in at 10:05. Nurses and technicians were all friendly and knowledgeable. The doctor was through and spent time explaining diagnosis.

After sudden knee pain, I was last minute looking for an orthopedist who focused on knees to see me before the weekend. I found Dr. Anthony at ~10am and scheduled an appointment for 4pm that same day. His office called me almost immediately asking to move my appointment to 1:15 as ZocDoc's information hadn't updated, which I was more than willing to do. Dr. Anthony was patient, understanding, and explained everything along the way. My knee pain (and swelling) was a mystery as my xrays were normal, but Dr. Anthony made every possible course of action abundantly clear so we had a game plan as a team. Even during the aspiration of my knee which was NOT something I looked forward to, he was gentle and waited for the numbing agent to kick in before proceeding with the procedure so my discomfort was minimized. We'll find out what the next steps are in the coming days, but I feel confident that Dr. Anthony will help me with whatever he believes is genuinely in my best interest. Absolutely worth traveling to the UWS!

I got all the way to the appointment, and Dr Anthony wasn't there. The desk claimed Dr Anthony called all of his appointments; however, I didn't receive a call. This was my 3rd visit with him, and his office staff was rude and I waited over an hour for the other 2 visits.

Dr. Anthony provided amazing care. He had obvious expertise and patiently listened to my concerns about my shoulder. He then explained his diagnosis calmly and in a fashion that was easy to understand. He answered all of my questions and showed compassion for how the injury was impacting my life. It's rare that I leave the doctor's office feeling as good and cared for as I did with Dr. Anthony. I would recommend him enthusiastically to anybody in need of orthopedic care. My words really don't do him full justice.

Although my diagnosis fell outside of his specialty, Dr. Anthony was thorough and communicative about what was going on within my body and ensured I received the proper treatment with other professionals. You may have to wait a bit to see him; however, it is likely (and worth it) because he gives you his patient's his full attention. I thoroughly recommend him.
