Things to know before your visit

We believe that we can achieve a better outcome for our patients if we establish a partnership that starts before you even step foot into our office and continues all the way through treatment and recovery. We understand that the idea of spine surgery can be overwhelming, and our team wants to ensure that your first visit runs as smoothly as possible. Therefore, we start the evaluation process during your initial phone call, so when you arrive for your first visit you can expect a doctor and physician assistant to be familiar with you. A team member will walk you through everything that will be required on your first visit such as forms you will need to complete prior to your arrival, whether you will need to take new X-rays and which doctor you will be meeting with.

What to expect when you arrive at our offices

We are located at 523 East 72nd Street, New York, NY 10021, about one block away from Hospital for Special Surgery, where we perform all surgical procedures.

Upon arrival, patients will enter through the main building lobby and proceed to the elevators. Our office is located on the 3rd floor. When you step out of the elevator, you will see a waiting area and an information desk where you will be asked to sign in and complete forms (if you did not already do so online). After you have been checked in, a medical assistant will take you to an exam room. They will get your vitals as well as request your completed paperwork, imaging CDs/Films as well as additional medical records you may want to provide. Once this is completed one of our physician assistants will take you to an exam room and begin your appointment.

Directions and parking

For directions to our office and/or information about where to park when you arrive for your visit, please click below. Please allow enough time prior to your appointment for parking as street parking is limited and you will need to park in a garage. If you have someone accompanying you to the appointment, we recommend that you be dropped off in front of the building.
