We Measure Outcomes
For nearly 20 years, we have been measuring our patients' functional outcomes (how much and how fast they
improve under our care) using a computerized survey system. Our scores are entered into a central database of outcomes scores
from 1600 practices all across the country. We have been ranked #1 in New York State and in the top 10 in the nation. This
means our patients GET BETTER FASTER, reducing their pain, improving their function and saving them expensive copayments.
Our patient satisfaction scores also lead the pack!
Our Mission: To create a partnership
with you in relieving your pain and restoring or improving your function.
