Jason Lipetz, MD
After suffering a herniated disc, I was told I would probably need a cane for the rest of my life. No one was helping me until I found Dr. Lipetz. I credit him with restoring my mobility and helping me through the most painful period of my life. I am now walking…and dancing…again!!
Dr. Lipetz it the nicest doctor I have ever been to. He has performed a discogram and multiple epidurals on me. During the injections, he doesn’t make a move without letting you know what he will do first. In the exam room, he seems genuinely interested in what you have to say and let’s you finish with your pain complaints without interruption. Dr. Lipetz’s staff is beyond exceptional. His nurse, Barbara, is extremely helpful and kind. She will always return your phone calls quickly and will do her best to help you. All of his receptionists are amazing too. They are so helpful in getting me an appointment with my strange work schedule. If you have back problems, I highly recommend Dr. Lipetz. He is the best on Long Island!

Joseph K. Lee, MD
Dr Lee is such a wonderful doctor and has a fantastic bedside manner!!
His staff are wonderful at all his offices but I have to say especially his staff at his East Meadow office!!
I have been there for 2 different areas of my spine for injections.
My latest appointment was today for for the second area!! I was having a wee bit of a tough time and they talked me through it made me feel so more relaxed and felt better that it was no problem carrying on to finish the procedure!!
Trust me I have had this type of procedure done before in the city and it was not nearly as good as what I receive with Dr Lee and his staff!! Also the chocolate spine afterwards Bonus!!!
