How was your experience with the doctor?Nice guy but not punctual with his appointments. I’ve had several follow up visits with him but each time i arrived - always on time for my appointment or before it- i am seen by Dr Schildhorn between 30-60 minutes after the original time scheduled. He needs to work on improving his time management skills because the patient’s time is just as important as the doctor’s.

How was your experience with the doctor?Short wait, very nice office, and great doctor. Dr. Schildhorn was very friendly and took the time to listen to all of my concerns and explained everything very clearly rather than rushing through things. Also unlike some surgeons I've seen in the past who right away want to operate, he suggested a conservative approach with surgery as a last resort.

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Schildhorn was very friendly. His examination of my left knee was thorough and he took time to explain his findings and the possible diagnostics in great detail. He then discussed further examination and treatment options and referred me to a MRI provider that accepts my insurance. The transparency and professionalism from the moment when I stepped into the office until I stepped out was outstanding.

How was your experience with the doctor?For the few not 4+ star reviews complaining about insurance issues or anything else, check with them beforehand. The receptionist in front is frankly a master at medical billing/insurance (which I would know as a medical coder) and works tirelessly with hospitals (which tend to cause these issues) to make sure that payments can be properly made and everything works out fine. Also, call to make appointments. Zocdoc has this issue with a ton of different providers and the people here will know exactly whether he can take your insurance.Anyway, I happened to be injured with a right humeral spiral fracture several months ago and I went to Lennox Hill Hospital. I luckily had Dr. Schildhorn as my surgeon (as it had to be stabilized with an ORIF.) Along with making the pre-surgery itself comfortable, Dr. Schildhorn was courteous at all post-op visits whether they were at his office or at Lennox Hill. He is a perfectionist and wants to make sure that people have as close a range of motion to their original as possible. He also listens to complaints and offers proper responses and doesn't over-inflate any diagnoses. In short, he's an excellent orthopedic surgeon.It's hard not to be bias as my right arm is as good as new even though the surgery has potential issues. Highest of recommendations for this doctor. 5/5.

How was your experience with the doctor?Came to get my Achilles’ tendon looked at and he helped educate me that it wasn’t actually the tendon but a sprain by the tendon/muscle juncture and laid out options on how to recover. He was a good listener and it was a quick visit. I’d recommend him.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a 4PM appointment and showed up a few minutes early. I was greeted at the door and was asked to show proof of insurance and ID. After they made their copies, I was placed in a room. I waited about 10-15 minutes max before the doctor came in. As soon as he did, he was greeted me with a nice, big friendly smile. Within a few minutes of us talking and me telling him about the history on my knee problems, he sent me for xrays in the room next door. After reviewing the xrays, he told me his findings and what my options are. Unlike most doctors, he suggested several options before quickly opting for surgery. He set me up for an MRI next door and we will take it from there after he reviews the results. So far he recommended physical therapy
