Amazing doctor. Kind, communicative, well-informed. Possibly the best doc I've ever been to. He explained things in a way that was accessible to me, and when I did not understand a concept, he took the time to explain further. My reasonfor seeing Dr. Shaw was for a second opinion on possible surgery. The procedure in question is not his specialty, and I will be going with the original doctor (who is also quite capable). However, were this not the case, I would have instantly switched to Dr. Shaw, based on his communication skills and willingness to spend the extra time to guide me through my medical issue.

Dr. Anthony was very courteous and informative. He clearly explained my injury, how to take care of it and expectations for recovery. I came 2 days after an initial visit to a doctor who didn't explain anything - I'm SO glad I followed-up on my own and found Dr. Anthony.

It was my first time seeing Dr. Anthony and I wanted his professional assessment of my knee pain. I first went through X-ray and then had my consultation with Dr. Anthony. He's super nice and thorough with his examination. Although hedoes speak fast, I realized that he was speaking more to himself and doing an out-loud mental checklist of things to check for while simultaneously allowing me to understand what he's looking for. It can be a little overwhelming, but I took it in stride.

Absolutely phenomenal care would be my summary for Dr. Anthony. He always answered my questions (big and small) thoroughly, all the while reassuring me and keeping my personal health and finances in mind. I was impressed by how easily he explainedconditions that were otherwise foreign and complicated to me, breaking everything down so I understood and took ownership of my recovery. I have him to thank for such a successful recovery period, and would recommend him to anyone going through anything shoulder/rotator cuff related. My only qualm was with the wait time at Mt. Sinai; on average, I'd wait about 45 min before being seen. Something to keep in mind when scheduling appointments around work or other obligations.

Dr. Anthony was very nice, as were the nurses and front desk staff. My only complaint is that there is no x-ray technology in the 780 8th Ave office so I was sent off-site to get an x-ray, which turned into a whole other timesuck debacle.

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.

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 whetherthe Dr can treat your medical issue otherwise you might waste a day.

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 meenough 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.
