Maxwell Medical is unlike any other PT I've ever received. Almost, to the point where I'm wishing I hurt myself more often just so I can have an excuse to come back here. Not really but you know what I mean.
Decor: very welcoming. Bright, open, colorful, clean, with usually some relaxing scents in the air. The space isn't huge but everything fits nicely without you feeling cluttered.
I think more then anything i appreciate their general concern for my recovery. I've been to other PT services and there was a heavy emphasis on strengthening which lead to the same stretches and movements every visit for weeks. Little to no variations in treatment which makes everything seem so routine. At Maxwell Medical, they focus stabilizing in addition to strengthening and more importantly pain reduction. So if you need to see a chiropractor, it's there. You need a good stretch and massage, it's there. You need pressure point therapy, it's there. You need muscle stimulation, it's there.
Honestly, I can't say enough about them and if your health insurance allows...I STRONGLY advise you pay them a visit.
Maxwell Medical has become an absolutely integral and positive part of my life and I am so grateful for it! This location boasts a great team of medical professionals who are the best at what they do and care so much about their patients and their work. From the front desk to the chiro table and beyond, everyone is wonderful. I started coming to this location about 6-7 months ago and my experience has been great.
I work mostly with Kinjal and Ramon for physical therapy and therapeutic massage -- it is a genuine joy to see them each time not only because they work magic in helping me heal (from working on simple neck tightness to a thrown out back or a complex shoulder injury) but also because they are kind and interesting people! Same goes for Dr. Tarnoff and Dr. Tan -- each of whom is a fantastic chiro -- they listen to your concerns and adjust gently and effectively and really get to know your body's issues over time. Dr. Barayeva's needling work has helped me stave off an about-to-seize-up neck. Importantly, the ladies at the front desk Miriam, Taylor and Katherine have been awesome at helping me with everything from insurance to accommodating my ever-changing schedule.
MaxWell hosted a booth at my company's fair. They offered a complimentary 30-min massage targeting an area for first-timers (not a full-body massage). The second time I visited a physiotherapist who took a look at my upper back and shoulders, and devised a plan to fix my pain. There are also ultrasound, back massage, and back electro-like stuff to help sooth my tense muscles. The third-time I saw a chiropractor who cracked my back and my back was at ease. Same procedure with ultrasound, massage and electro-like stuff. I went again the fourth time and so forth. All sessions were very good for my upper back and shoulders pain that I have had for over a decade from working long hours at my desk. Also, they teach you what exercises to do at home and at work. Now Maxwell has became my absolute favorite relaxing place.
General: Very clean office. Polite and welcoming workers. Everyone is very professional and very good at what they do. No waiting time. They are on-time with appointments. Offers a nice gym, water, tea, chocolates, candy, fruits, etc...
It all started with a guy handing out a flyer for a free consultation and 30-minute medical massage. Little did I know that it would be one of the most life changing moments for me. "Proper alignment is necessary for healthy joints." "The body has the ability to heal itself." "It's all connected." That's how it was explained to me when I came to Maxwell Medical for my first consultation and the moment I knew that they would be able to help me maintain my active lifestyle.
For several years, I was in and out of other clinics with a diagnosis of IT Band Syndrome, Patellofemoral Syndrome and Arthritis, offering nothing more than temporary relief through repetitive strengthening exercises and rounds of prescription medication. They told me I should stop running as it would only further damage my knees.
Then I found Maxwell Medical. What sets Maxwell apart from the other places is that they do not simply address the symptoms and make them go away temporarily, but they identify the source and prescribe an individualized course of manual treatment. They also provide stretches and exercises to do at home for a more holistic and natural solution, without the use of prescription painkillers and anti-inflammatories. They are a full-service facility, offering chiropractic, sports massage, physical therapy, trigger point therapy and acupuncture, all in one office at each location.
After four weeks, they corrected my laterally tilted pelvis, resolved my IT band issues and restored full functionality to both of my knees, allowing me to run my first PAIN-FREE Half Marathon in Brooklyn this past May. Maxwell Medical is no joke, they deliver REAL results!
