Patient Reviews

    "I went to Dr. Mizhiritsky for the first time this week and I have to say I was quite impressed with the level of care. Having so many residual injuries from my sports-playing days, I've visited many orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine and rehabilitation doctors in NYC. None of the experiences I’ve had even came close to my experience at New York Bone & Joint Specialists. "

  • "“Surgery is never a light subject and it is very difficult to find a surgeon and a surgical team that treats the patient with respect and comforts them before and after the operation. Dr. Popovitz is one of those rare orthopedic surgeons, and I am so very grateful to him and his team for how they took care of me. "

  • "From the moment I arrived everyone was very welcoming and attentive. Dr. Tarwala took excellent care of me. He carefully assessed my sprained ankle, kindly answered all of my questions and made sure I knew he was accessible via email or phone if any further questions came up. I highly recommend this organization and Dr. Tarwala to anyone in need of an orthopedic surgeon in NYC."
