He has also worked extensively with diverse cultural communities of New York City, including the Japanese and Chinese communities (Dr. Degenhardt is fluent in both Japanese and Mandarin), and the under-served Manhattan’s Lower East-side and Chinatown population.

He is also an attending physician at NYU Langone Medical Center, Beth Israel Medical Center and Bellevue Medical Center.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a seamless and great experience from the moment I checked in. I waited less than five minutes to see Dr. Degenhardt. Once in the exam room his bedside manner was professional, relaxed and easygoing. I also appreciated that he was able to make recommendations based off his training in Ayurveda and Chinese medicine. I think I found my new PCP and will definitely be back. I highly recommend Dr. Degenhardt

How was your experience with the doctor?I saw one of the PA’s, Christina, and she was absolutely wonderful. She was friendly, to the point, and made sure I was comfortable with the steps we were taking. One of the doctors came in to speak with me as well just to say hello and he was also very friendly and kind. Definitely making this place my PC.

How was your experience with the doctor?Super thoughtful and comprehensive, I went in for a basic physical and hand pain but we spent 45 minutes going over current medical issues and talking about some holistic approaches to solve the root issues, highly recommended.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Aran Degenhardt was excellent. I came to him with vaccinations records from back home in Australia, right away he knew what I had, what I need and even went as far to make me understand what circumstances would put me more at risk. Highly recommend him.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was by far the BEST experience I have ever had at a doctors office. The front desk ladies were incredibly friendly and both the PA, Christina, and Dr D were extremely nice. Best part is that they were able to answer all of my questions where I did not feel rushed (like some doctors might make you feel) and they provided a clear and concise course of action and plan. I honestly never felt so comfortable at a doctors appt before! I definitely recommend to anyone.
