From the moment you walk into this office, you know you're somewhere special. The kind, relaxed reassuring smiling staff are a reflection of an office environment that is not chaotic and much the antithesis of most Manhattan doctors' offices.
Dr. Ciment sees all of his patients on time- What a novelty! Apparently, he's known for this. What was amazing was that while he saw me on time and spent 30 minutes with me, I didn't feel rushed at all. If anything, I walked out of that appointment feeling better and like I had a greater understanding of my feet and ankle health issues, in general. Dr. Ciment looks young but he is clearly very bright and educated. He doesn't condescend or talk down to his patients: He speaks in regular terms and makes sure it all makes sense along the way. He has a good touch and though he had to do something rather painful (I thought it would be- that's what kept me away) he made it seem simple, effortless and nearly pleasant. Truly, he's is a living testament to medicine being an art as much as science.
I can't speak highly enough of him, the office, the staff and the overall experience. Great, efficient and thorough healthcare in a relaxed environment, pay attention Presidential Candidates of 2008: THIS IS THE MODEL FOR AMERICAN HEALTHCARE!
Pros: Fantastic and knowledgable doctor, great office, convenient location & gets you in and out on time.
Cons: He's my podiatrist and not my G.P.
