Dr. Chiappetta has fantastic bedside manner and is focused on educating his patients; however, I would not recommend seeing him. I initially saw Dr. Chiappetta for assistance with my posture and an adjustment. He had me come in once per weekover a 3 week period. Unfortunately, I now have significantly more pain and discomfort than I did prior to seeing Dr. Chiappetta - no response from his office when I mentioned this, which is horrible. I'm getting a second opinion and really hoping he didn't do any serious damage.

I have had problems with my back for years from working a desk job. He is an absolute miricle worker. Takes time to find what is hurting you and has a great bedside manner. I highly recommended.

I've been seeing Dr. Chiappetta for a few weeks now and he's helped me a lot! I've been suffering from lower back pain for months and decided to see a chiropractor. After my first visit, I immediately felt relief. After mysecond visit, my back pain was almost completely gone. I would highly recommend Dr. Chiappetta.

I was very skeptical as to whether or not a chiropractor would work given the fact that I had never visited one before and I was hearing mixed reviews regarding treatment. I woke up this morning in a miserable mood andwas not looking forward to my day whatsoever - I figured this was because it was Friday and I simply didn't want to go to work along with some other personal issues. Immediately after my 40 minute appointment and treatment with Thomas, my mood instantly improved and I feel great after a single appointment. I'd been sleeping on the floor for the past week out of lower back pain discomfort. He took the time to explain my issues and show me what was wrong, would highly recommend to anyone complaining of

Best Chiropractor I've gone to here in NYC! Highly recommended. He has a different approach to healing which I believe promotes long term recovery! Will continue to go when needed.

This man is amazing. This is the 2nd injury that I went to him for and I always feel better afterwards. He is very knowledgeable and I love that he makes sure I am ok before sending me on my way.Not that I want to go back because it means I have hurt myself yet again, but I will be going back to Dr. C for sure.

I had a muscle spasm in my back doing pull ups. I was in a lot of pain and could hardly turn my head to the right. I booked an appointment with Dr. C 2 days after the injury, and endedup coming back 3-4 more times. Every time I came back I showed incremental progress with range of motion and pain. Dr. C was able to diagnose the injury very quickly and had a plan in mind on how to treat it. It is only 10 days since the initial injury and although I am not 100% yet, I definitely feel that I would not be where I am today with out the help of Dr. C. After my last visit, I was provided with stretches and workouts to do on my own, with instructional online videos, to get me to 100%. Dr. C is knowledgeable of the industry and I definitely recommend.

Horrible experience. The doctor saw me right away but was completely unenthusiastic. I didn't feel satisfied with the quality of care I received. It didn't seem like he wanted to be there. The session lasted only about 15 min and wasn't helpful. It felt like a waste of time.

Efficient, professional and friendly! He makes you feel at ease, walks you through the process and gives you suggestions/feedback for things to do on your own to alleviate whatever pain your having. Seeing him regularly here on out. A+!

I was able to get a same day appt. When I arrived I was ushered in immediately. The office was spotless. Dr. Chiappetta explained the procedures before he did anything. He was pleasant and knowledgeable. Seemed to know what he wasdoing. More importantly I was feeling like a million bucks the next day. Thank you Thomas Chiappetta!!
