“Genuine, compassionate, caring”
“Dr. Rances is perhaps the most genuine, compassionate, and caring physician I have encountered in NYC. He takes the time to fully explain what he thinks is happening and the various options for treatment. He genuinely cares about his patients, and has encouraged me to update him on my condition, even when I don’t have an appointment scheduled. I have full confidence that he will be able to treat my condition.”- Neil F., ZocDoc
"Dr. Rances is amazing!"
"I am not kidding you - Dr. Rances is amazing! The whole facility is nice, clean, friendly staff, and Dr. Rances himself takes as much time as needed to carefully listen to your whole story (mine is quite complex) and explain treatment options. I felt so comfortable with him, I let him give me a nerve block that first appointment and I am in so much less pain."- Rachelle R., Yelp
