Referrals to Other Providers

As the best care is often integrative, and involves collaboration with others on your healthcare team, I am happy to liaise with those involved in your treatment, as appropriate, and with your explicit permission.

As my availability at this time is limited, I also refer to other providers whom I have found to be well-trained, knowledgeable, and otherwise qualified to help with pain and other issues.

The below is a partial listing of other providers, and will be updated from time to time. Most of the below are in Manhattan; some are in New Jersey. Those providers not in NY/NJ will consult with you by phone or videochat.

Please note that your experience with a given provider may differ from mine or another's, and the listing below is in no way intended to guarantee that someone will be the right fit for you. Feel free to do your own research ahead of time to see if a particular provider's background, expertise, personality and interests feel like a good fit for the issue you are seeking to treat. It may take a few tries to find the provider who will feel most helpful to you.
