Testimonials, reviews of IMC Bone Doc and our NYC orthopedic surgeons

My son's experience with Dr. Trepeta was really good. He definitely was everything that I read about him on ZocDoc. ZocDoc has a website and an app which allows you to find doctors anywhere and read reviews so that you can choose wisely.

He was attentive to my son's concerns and took his time with my son. I'm definitely pleased with my choice even though he was located in Valley Stream.

BEAUTY M. — 5 stars

This is a very busy office, but well worth it, with the care of all who work here, Dr. Katsigiorgis who is an excellent surgeon to the receptionist. Lorna, Tyler and everyone really do care. Been going here for a while and want to thank them for taking excellent care me. I really do recommend coming here.

DEIRDRE M. — 5 stars

I've been coming here for a month to see my orthopedist, and for MRIs he prescribed on site initially, and for physical therapy. I feel great about my care, for it's an excellent place. Dr. Farakh has a great approach as an orthopedist. He is constructive and has a really great manner and his decisions about my care have been really excellent. I'm able to ask questions. I am offered options as far as treatment, like whether I want physical therapy for six weeks three times a week, or seven weeks two times a week. Options may vary of course with different patients, but I was able to pick an seven-week plan that worked best for me. I do get the feeling that I am proactively involved in my care, while being in excellent hands, so I can relax and trust it. I had cortisone injections in my hamstring muscles for my sports injury here, and the procedure was comfortable and it helped a lot. The physical therapy facility is on site and the staff  as well as the PT's are very attentive and easy going, yet high standards knowledgeable and excellent. I've had a lot of experience working with movement and body health specialists because I am a performing artist who trained in acting and movement/dance. I feel confident and positive coming here.  The PTs know what's important to me as far as my goals,  but they also set an action plan up so that I don't rush into things too fast, yet I'm also challenged. I want to be in my best health physically for my work and exercising and for life, and I feel really great about the care here. Plus, the staff is really nice. Coming in, there's always a warm atmosphere.  I like coming here. My attitude coming in is a part of the positive experience, but it's also a positive place to come to. There's no show or presentation, it's very just what it is, which is a great doctor, great PTs, and excellent care to get better and heal. You're not going to be pampered here, though; you have to be willing to do the work but that's the way it should be. I'm very confident because I can have conversations about my healing. I'm taking a trip to Los Angeles for five days for an acting job and I already have an exercise program for travel from my physical therapist. I see people of all ages here and everyone is always treated well and it's a very diverse group of patients, which is awesome. You know they deal with people in all occupations and stages of life. It's a friendly no fuss place, too. They also work with me with my schedule and there is flexibility for scheduling without a lot of hassle or stress or worry,  and that's really nice. I come from Long Beach, about ten miles away, and it is worth the ride. I feel good. Thanks so much.

JEN D. — 5 stars

I came here because a friend had surgery by one of the doctors here and highly recommended this place. My first appointment was "on" my birthday and to be honest, I really didn't care because my health is more important then celebrating my b'day. I walked in to a packed office, but some are here for Physical Therapy and others are here to see the different doctors. I was there a total of 3 hours, till 8pm and I have to say that it was well worth it. I was in pain, but was X-ray'd, then seen by the doctor (Dr. Katsigiorgis) and then had a MRI. Don't be discouraged by the waiting room, in the end, it will all be worth it. I went the easy route, cortisone shot and physical therapy, but after months of therapy I knew I had to have surgery. Dr. Katsigiorgis is a great doctor/surgeon and I am glad he was the doctor assigned to me. Mayra at the front desk where you sign in for PT is an ABSOLUTE sweetheart. Then there's Jen in the PT office, she runs the show back there, another sweetheart, extremely knowledgeable. I have to say that EVERYONE in the PT department is amazing. You don't get the same therapist every time, but they all know what they are doing, so it doesn't matter who is your therapist. They are NON-STOP in PT, I am amazed at how attentive they all are to the patients. They know your name after being seen once and to me that matters. I would highly recommend this place. Some of the reviews I think are a little nit picky. Dr. Sussman is a nice guy, so what if he calls your name and then takes you to where you are going to be seen and doesn't ask you how your day is. He is doing his job and that's all that matters. If your in pain do you really want to discuss your day? The only thing I will agree with is that the place could use a serious cleaning. If anything, find a new cleaning service because they aren't doing their job.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kats (Dr. Gus Katsigiorgis) for 6 years now and he is an excellent doctor, diagnose base on different test he does not just X-ray or mri but body movement test, had an ACL surgery done to my right knee and as someone who is physically active exercises 3 times per week my right knee doesn’t hurt at all and no problem when exercising.

DOROTHEA S. — 5 stars

I was hesitant before I went to my appointment today due to the reviews. Everyone commented on the long wait. I had a 9:00 appt. with Dr. Katsigiorgis and was taken in at around 9:15. Everyone in the office was pleasant and courteous. The Dr. came in within 10 mins.that I was brought into the room.He was very professional and greeted both myself and my husband. He was a good listener and examined me and reviewed my MRI in a very reasonable amount of time. He explained my options and gave me details.I did not feel rushed. I did print out my paper work at home off the computer before I arrived but I still feel everyone was very efficient. The only thing I might add is that the office and examining rooms could use a big update in decorating. Everything else was great!!

EILEEN H. — 5 stars

The doctor was very nice and did thorough physical examination. He (Dr. Gus Katsigiorgis) clearly explained the cause of my pain and numbness in my leg.

IVA G. — 5 stars

It took me half a dozen doctors to get to a doctor who knew what he was doing. Dr. Farakh has a great bedside manner. He didn't rush me in and out. He examined me and ordered X-rays, which were taken on the premises. After he read the X-rays he was right on point with his diagnosis. Really glad I took a chance on another doctor. His office was packed and from what I witnessed, he took time with each patient. Now I understand why I waited a while before I was seen by him. I don't mind waiting for someone who is worth the wait. I will continue to see Dr. Farakh as long as it takes to get my situation under control. I hit the jackpot when I found Dr. Farakh. He made me feel like there is hope. Thanks again doc.

PAULINE B. — 5 stars

Very nice man (Dr. Nabil Farakh). I'm not the hold-my-hand type of patient, so I found his speed just right for me. Got to the heart of the matter (broken phalanx), no fuss no muss. The wait was a little long because they are understaffed and they allow walk-in appointments, but I found the staff very professional, very helpful and very friendly despite the chaos. They even helped me complete my forms because I couldn't write. Highly recommended Doctor and practice.

TAMARA T. — 5 stars

The doctor (Dr. Nabil Farakh) is very nice, extremely knowledgable in his field and answered any/all questions and concerns that I had. His staff is friendly, efficient and very polite.

DELORES K. — 5 stars

AGNES P. — 5 stars

Dr. Farakh was warm, direct, and helpful. Gave a comprehensive plan for my problems (medication, tests, exercises, etc), and I am hopeful to see how things work. My only complaint would be the wait in the office, but this seems standard for all doctors; I didn't mind it much.

I love this doctor, I do not think I would trust anyone else with my knee. Very precise and gets straight to figuring out the problem. Extremely Intelligent and professional as a college student, I have very limited time at home he got me right in for surgery with short notice from me. Explained things thoroughly with basic anatomy I knew exactly what he was saying and what was going to be done to my knee. So happy I found him when I did. I've been seeing him for almost a year and I never left his office empty handed. I was at ease going into surgery having read a lot about him. If you are like me and are a super nervous person I assure you he will make you feel confident and take away all fear. Most genuine doctor I have ever had. Open to questions and attentive to any concerns. Thank you Dr. Farakh!

JENNIFER B. — 5 stars

Great experience. Office moves fast, Very profesional staff. Dr Hecht is extremely thorough and thoughtful.

ERIC F. — 5 stars

I chose to make an appointment with Dr. Hecht after reading other patients' feedback involving his experience, knowledge, and bedside manner. The office so efficient that even though I was there early because I knew I would be filling out paperwork as a new patient my appointment was completed within 10 minutes. I did not feel rushed and had a conversation with the doctor after reviewing my X-rays that made me feel comfortable addressing all my questions. The office got clearance from insurance company and set up an appointment with another office while they searched for the most immediate appointment that would be conveniently located. I wish every doctor's office and business was run this well. Though it was efficient on time, the entire office cared, including the doctor. He even monitored the status of my insurance approval of the tests for the other office and the appointment being made at the other office.
