Verified Patient Reviews
Dr Anthony is a first class surgeon, who focuses on the patient's wellness and will outline all non-surgery options to rehabilitate the patient. Surgery is a last option. He has excellent communications skills and a warm bed-side manner that is precise and clear. I recommend him unreservedly.
Perfect. His assistant is professional, very pleasant, organized, and direct. Dr, Anthony provides a safe, secure atmosphere where one feels cared for by a very knowledgeable pro.
Dr. Anthony was great, he answered all of my questions. Although the wait was long I was happy with the service !
Outstanding doctor and staff. Friendly and efficient throughout, and very patient with questions.
Excellent experience overall-very sharp Dr. -explains what is going on and listens to you. The assistant and staff were friendly and efficient.
Waiting time was long but the doctor apologized, he is excellent.
Very busy office. Expect to wait .. and Zocdoc description for Dr Anthony is incorrect. Sadly, from that nice long list mentioned in Zocdoc description, he really only treats sports related back issues. Make sure to call ahead and confirm whether the Dr can treat your medical issue otherwise you might waste a day.
Efficient and friendly staff
Everybody in the office was friendly dr. Anthony was extremely thorough and made me feel comfortable and confident in planning my surgery
Seemed smart and knowledgeable
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.
He was very understanding and helpful and answered all of my questions. Great experience.
Dr. Anthony was very efficient and friendly.
He was very thorough and did not seem like he was in a rush. He explained everything to me and answered my questions.
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!
The entire process was easy and the staff was very helpful and friendly.
Great doctor. Very attentive and professional.
I found him to be highly professional, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to and understand. He described my condition clearly and had clear ideas on how to proceed toward treatment, starting with non-invasive physical therapy.
Doctor was very nice and helpful. The appointment was only 10 min (as expected), but I waited over an hour to see him.
Dr Shawn was so great. Really took the time to hear my history and to test everything out. Best doctor visit I've ever had.
Incredibly thorough and patient doctor, plus a beautiful office space with very friendly nurses and front desk staff, too.
First rate. Patient, knowledgeable and conservative in recommended tests and treatments. Excellent diagnostician. Nice guy, too.
He was great. Explained my condition in detail.. I think the office was a little understaffed on my appointment date (? summer vacations) but they were working their hardest to get everyone checked in.
Dr. Anthony and his team was very professional in understanding my problem and fear of not going to run or play sports again. My sincere thanks to Gloria, Ana and Dr. Anthony. He promised that his goal is to see me playing sports again. Im givin g 4* for recommendation only becuse im still under treatment.
Super nice and patient.
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!
He really knew what he was doing and made me confident in his descisions about my injury
listed as taking my insurance by did not
Quick , clean office , friendly and good bedside manner
Excellent experience. The most informative doctor's appoint I every had.: state of the art equipment; friendly and knowledgeable staff and Dr, Anthony who took the time and effort to explain what has happened to my knees and how we were going to restore the joint.
Dr Anthony is truly a great doctor. Very knowledgeable, down to earth,great bedside manner,etc
The visit was great. I had subway problems and was about 30 minutes late to the appointment but the doctor's office was very understanding and I was done with my entire about only 40 minutes late!
Friendly, great communication of issue and receptive of preferences.
Dr Anthony is really great. He's super efficient, friendly, knowledgeable, and doesn't make anything feel like a rush. He just gets right to the most important things. I had an immediate sense of confidence in his knowledge and skills, and feeling like you're in the right hands is kinda important when you're talking to a surgeon :) Highly recommended.
Dr.Anthony is an excellent doctor with terrific bedside manner and is extremely patient and caring. He answered all of my questions in a clear manner that was easy to understand. I'd definitely recommend him!
Dr Anthony and the entire staff at his office were amazing. He was really knowledgeable and took the time to really examine and explain what was wrong with my knee.
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.
A very, very nice doctor. Very genuine and so nice.Both doctor and staff were so professional. there was no stress in there. The ambiance was nice. i had a very plesant experience. This office and its highly professional staff is very well recommended. What I noticed was how warm and welcoming every one was. I could tell the staff were very well trained and they knew what they were doing.Every thing in the office was polished and refined;apperance, way of speaking and good manners. Excellent service.
Very happy! He was attentive and knowledgeable! Very patient with all my numerous questions regarding alternative treatments to my knees which has been problematic for 15 years!
I thought it went well. He examined my knee & answered my questions. He referred me to get an MRI, for a follow up.
He is a very nice doctor, but the wait time of 1 hour and 30 minutes for a 10 minute appointment is ridiculous.
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.
Very nice, patient and knowledgeable
Excellent bedside manner, professional, kind, great communication skills.
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.
Fantastic in every way. What a fantastic doctor.
He was excellent! Great bedside manner and listened to all of my concerns. Even took the time to ask more about a secondary issue I mentioned (other than the one I came in for). I'll be going back for sure.
I visited Dr. Anthony after a skiing accident. He was professional, positive, and took the time to explain the injury, answer my questions, and walk me through the next steps to recovery. I would highly recommend Dr, Anthony!
Dr. Anthony was great!
I found him highly astute, professional, caring and an excellent listener. Highly recommended!!
The appointment itself was great. Getting my results was more painful than the injury itself. Took over a week and only received them by calling the radiologist directly, whom informed me that they'd sent results almost immediately after the appointment. Frustrating to say the least, especially when in pain.
Dr. Anthony was very professional and knowledgeable. I would definitely go back to him and would recommend him to friends and colleagues.
Dr. Anthony was very pleasant, explained my treatment in detail, and answered all of my questions.
Great bedside manner, took time to answer questions
Terrific doctor and office. Saw me very quickly, very friendly and diagnosed my issue right away. Highly recommended.
Excellent experience. Dr. Anthony is straight up. He answered my questions, gave me a couple of options, and was cool to boot. Whole staff was nice. Strongly recommend.
Great demeanor smart and thorough
Dr. Anthony was professional, thorough, and caring. Great doctor and great staff too! No wait at all for my appointment either.
Dr. Anthony was kind and friendly in his bedside manner and seemed interested in making sure that the patient was appropriately and accurately diagnosed. He took great care and effort in explaining reasons why this injury might have occurred or been exacerbated. Additionally, he took great lengths to provides a variety of improvement options. The facilities (office, x-ray room, and exam room) were clean and inviting.
Excellent doc--knowledgeable, kind, and supportive!
He was very professional he listened to my concerns, Dr Shawn answered all my questions. I will definitely recommend him.
I thought the office was very efficient and I appreciated that they reminded me to go get an MRI and that the doctor called in order to explain the results and to make sure I was following his treatment plan. I just wish that in office he took more time to examine me, it felt slightly rushed but overall he was very informative and easy to talk to.
Nice and helpful doc!
My visit with Dr. Anthony was very pleasant. He is extremely professional and detailed when explaining the reasons for my calf discomfort from running. I would highly recommend him.
I found Dr. Anthony to be very detailed when explaining the X-ray and thorough with the knee exam while figuring out the reason for my pain. He also explained the areas of the knee regarding the pain points. I highly recommend. Also the facility is completely upgraded! He wasn't quick to offer surgery and offered suggestions for pain mgmt.
Fantastic staff and doctor . Calm and clear We'll trained and kind . A bit of a wait but was able to get an appointment in a day so seemed like a good trade off. Also they take insurance without endless hassles.
I saw Dr. Anthony last week. This was a great experience, starting with the staff, who were friendly, helpful, and accommodating. The nurse that reviewed my file was very pleasant and thorough in her exam and Dr. Anthony was great. He took the time to ask me a lot of questions and patiently explained my condition and all of the treatment options. He had a great bedside manner and was very friendly. I would absolutely recommend him.
Very pleasant;but highly professional And informative
Excellent attentive doctor, highly recommend!
Dr. Anthony and his staff were incredibly nice!! Wait time was minimal, I was in and out of X-Ray and my appointment all within 40 minutes and that includes the time it took for me to fill out all the paperwork as a new patient. Took the time to answer all my questions, and I he listened to my injury history, as opposed to glancing at my chart and giving a speedy exam, which I've experienced elsewhere. Would definitely recommend!
Very professional - looked at my x-rays, assessed the damage, explained things very quickly & thoroughly, and sent me on my way with an action plan.
