Dr. Mancuso is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Some doctors don’t want to talk to you but he took his time to explain the treatment for my back and neck which made me feel much more confident in my recovery. Thank you for all your help!
My arthritis pain in the knees has been treated several times already by Dr. B. He is very professional, courteous and friendly. But most importantly his injections work!!! I am so greatful.
Great listener, knowledgeable and so friendly; best experience at a doctor’s office.
Really nice staff and clean, modern office await was 2 hours, but because they said my zocdoc appt didn't flow through to their system. If you make an appointment through here, definitely call the office directly to confirm.
La visita de hoy fue muy exelente agradable. Estoy con forme. Me esplicaron muy bien en tendi todo lo que me explicaron.
This was my second visit. Both times Dr. Elgizaoui was thorough, informative, straightforward, and kind.
Dr. Erickson was very kind and explained things in a way that my husband and I understood. Very good bedside manner and the staff there were great.
Meghan did a great job in explaining what was going on and listening to my concerns. If you are a runner, she is a great person to speak to.
I loved seeing Dr. Hrubes. She is warm, funny, knowledgeable and really listens. I was put at ease instantly. I’ve only experienced gruff, older male doctors who didn’t listen to my concerns. I’m really looking forward to continuing working with her to heal.
Really efficient Office between the receptionists, Doctor and doctor’s assistant. I was in and out really quickly with a follow up almost immediately.
Dr Levy and Dev are amazing doctors. They really care about helping the patient.
Very pleasant , knowledgable and attentive to me
Dr. Zacchilli was thorough, compassionate and informative. He explained his findings clearly, and explained the alternative courses of treatment, along with the benefits and drawbacks of each. Beyond his clear expertise in his specialty and in orthopaedics in general, he was extremely warm, personable and caring. I will definitely return to him should the need arise.
He was a little quick, but answered all of my questions. I was able to see him in a reasonable amount of time.
New York Sports Medicine Specialists
Sports medicine specialists are trained to diagnose and treat sports injuries so that individuals can continue engaging in physical activities without discomfort or trouble. They are also experts at preventing illnesses and injuries in physically active individuals. Although they usually specialize in working with professional athletes, they are trained to handle any issue faced by active individuals—even if they are not necessarily involved in sports directly.
According to the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, while most doctors train in internal medicine, family medicine or emergency medicine, sports medicine can also be a focus area. Generally, sports medicine specialists are board-certified in pediatrics or family medicine, with additional training in sports medicine. Some sports medicine specialists also undergo orthopedic training. Read more about what Stanford Children’s Health has to say about sports medicine specialists on its website.

Sports medicine specialist vs. orthopedic surgeon
Sports medicine specialists and orthopedic surgeons are skilled at musculoskeletal medicine, however sports medicine specialists use nonoperative techniques as treatment methods. According to the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, 90% of all sports injuries do not require surgery. Apart from nonsurgical methods, orthopedic surgeons are well-versed in the surgical techniques required to heal sports musculoskeletal injuries. If surgery is deemed necessary by a sports medicine specialist, you will be referred to an orthopedic surgeon. Some of the common problems both medical specialists tackle include ankle sprains, muscle strains, knee and shoulder injuries, and fractures.
