My experiences at HealthQuest are enjoyable. The staff and physicians are friendly and take their time to know you well. Physicians work very accurately to ease your aches and pains. Every visit is worth it.
I enjoy my experience here. The staff are welcoming. I feel very comfortable. My favorite staff member is Sabrina. She always welcomes me and lift my moods.
My experience at HealthQuest was very good. Before coming to HealthQuest I went elsewhere but was not satisfied. I would recommend my friends and family.
I, Regina Bhagwandeen can verify that receptionist here are all a doll. Beautiful disposition. Dr. Chiappetta is a gem, a caring doctor who takes time and shows concern about a patient. As for Dr. Ackerman’s receptionist, I’m somewhat disappointment. It’s not all about surgery. We’re willing to make calls for surgery but for follow ups, I’m disappointed. Therapy ladies do call you.
P.S. In reference to the people in pain management he is a wonderful individual comedian, look forward to seeing him.
As for physical therapy they are all great. I love the caring way of Juno, greets you with a smile.
As for Amy physical assistance Wow, words cannot express her wonderful personality. Very caring & gentle in how she treats a patient.
It was difficult for me to get here 2 ½ months ago due to the pain I experienced. By my very first visit was a delightful experience. The entire staff is warm and friendly. They are compassionate & caring, after my visit I leave feeling so much better. I truly look so forward to coming here. I recommend this facility whenever I can. Thank you HealthQuest for all you do.
I Joy Hemmings is pleased that the staff of HealthQuest is very pleasant and from noticing what goes on they are hard working and experience and also have a lot of courtesy.

You don't have to live with pain. Doctors at HealthQuest, a multi-specialty facility dedicated to pain management, can improve your quality of life by providing expert treatment, utilizing the latest technology available.
Dr. Russell Greenseid and Dr. Nick Chiappetta are chiropractors at the Sheepshead Bay facility, and one of the innovative treatments they offer is the use of the spinal decompression machine.
"It's FDA-approved, and is safe and effective," says Dr. Greenseid. Via mechanical traction, pressure is alleviated from the pain-sensitive structures.
Patients who have suffered with debilitating lower back pain have found relief from its use, says the doctor. It's used primarily to treat disc injuries to the lower back, providing an alternative to those who do not wish to have surgery.
"This is just one of the many tools we offer," says Dr. Chiappetta. Manual manipulation is another option, as are joint injections. The latter, too, uses technology so doctors can work more efficiently. In this instance, an ultrasound machine provides the doctor with a picture of the area that needs treatment, and this allows him to guide needles precisely to these affected areas.
The Nostrand Avenue facility offers many forms of treatment, including chiropractic care, neurology, orthopedic, pain management and physical therapy. The facility's medical director is Dr. Igor Stiler, a neurologist, who oversees the care of those who suffer with neurological disorders, as well as patients recovering from surgery or accidents.
Orthopedic specialties include sports medicine, pediatric orthopedics, and care to feet, ankles, hips, knees, shoulders, elbows, hands, and spine. The first step is a consultation and physical examination so the doctors can evaluate the condition. If further diagnostic testing is needed, you won't have to run all over town to get it. X-rays and MRIs can be taken right at the facility, making everything convenient for the patient.
"We make it as easy as possible for you," says Dr. Greenseid.
The goal is to find the cause of the pain.
"You want to treat the cause, not the symptoms," he says.
HealthQuest also offers a unique program to help smokers quit.
"By tapping into certain points through the ear to the brain, chemicals are balanced, and cravings vanish," says Dr. Stiler. No pain or drugs are involved, he says, "and one treatment is all that is usually needed."
A weight loss treatment is similar, as "very light stimulation to precise points on the external ear" is used to reduce cravings.
"It is proven to be an effective and painless option that enables one to lose weight," says the doctor.
Weight loss can also help alleviate join pain. HealthQuest has been servicing the community since 1994. Most major medical plans, including No Fault and Medicare, are accepted. The facility is handicapped accessible, and there's parking on the premises. Check HeathQuest's website for educational seminars that help improve quality of life.
HealthQuest [3500 Nostrand Ave. between Avenues U and Z in Sheepshead Bay, (718) 769-2521]. Open Mondays through Fridays, 9 am - 7 pm, and Saturdays, 9 am - noon. For more, visit www.hqbk.com.

Thank you Dr. Ditchek for finally getting me help. I live in Bay Ridge and went to several rehab facilities and had nothing but pain. Thankfully, I found HealthQuest., the chiropractors, the therapists, the medical doctors, the staff..all wonderful. I found the best in HealthQuest.

Great personal and professional care. All services under one roof make the treatment both easy and convenient. The staff couldn't be nicer.

For those of you with chronic pain like me - there is finally hope!! At "HealthQuest".
They have helped me tremendously. I have tried many, many other facilities - none of which gave me any pain relief so I continued to suffer, until I was told about HealthQuest.
The staff at HealthQuest is different. They coordinate together as a team to give each patent individual attention - their doctors, therapists, and chiropractors focus on relieving your pain - that is their Quest managing your pain.
HealthQuest truly cares about each and every patient. All I can say with tears of joy, THANK GOD FOR HEALTHQUEST!
From a truly thankful patient,
On September 26, 2005, I started with HealthQuest. My mom's friend highly recommended the chiropractors & therapists. She only goes to the best doctors. (Rita Friedman)(As quoted by Mrs. Friedman)
My mom came along with me & received physical therapy for her osteoporosis. She had a great time here. It was great to see her laugh again as she glided along the treadmill.
I had taken two bad falls, on a cracked sidewalk & over a tree root. Bulging discs & arthritis in my neck resulted from the falls. The pain was unbearable around my ribcage. My pain is consistently improving. The doctors are all wonderful and have a great personality.
From a "happy to be alive" patient.Thank GOD for HealthQuest!
- M. Perlow
Many thanks to the entire staff at HealthQuest, Drs. Chiappetta, Greenseid, and Klein worked tirelessly to diagnose and treat my injury. They tailored a rehabilitation program specific to my needs, and made sure I was making the progress I needed to get back on my feet and heading in a positive direction. Through the efforts of the HealthQuest staff, I am well on my way to recovery, and able to enjoy a better quality of life.
I have been going to HeatlhQuest for my balance and my walking. I have improved greatly and recommend this place to anyone who needs physical therapy.
HealthQuest has truly been a blessing in my life! There are not enough positive & nice things that I can say about the entire wonderful, caring & professional staff. After years of chronic lower back pain, I finally have less pain & sometimes no pain at all. Several months of therapy, treatments & their determination (even when I'd give up, they wouldn't), has proven to me what a fantastic facility Healthquest is! My love & thanks to them all.

Dear Dr. Chiappeta
I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere thanks. I cannot thank you enough for all your support with my weight loss. When I first came to you on October 30th, I weighed 19 pounds .I was discouraged and frustrated. I was tried of trying everything under the sun.
I had recently lost my Mom and was doing a lot of emotional eating. This occurred at night when I was alone. When I listened to the diet that I was to follow I wasn’t sure that I would be able to comply. It was after all a very low carb/low sugar diet. At this point, I was having carbs for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as snacks. So yes, I was very concerned with the diet which was outlined .I decided that I would take the plunge and give it my all.
The one to one support has been the most rewarding. Reviewing my daily meals and helping me adjust as needed was empowering .Having you available to answer any questions, concerns or doubts is great .As days and weeks went by I adapted well to my new dietary intake. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
On my most recent appointment on March 19th - in less than six months I have lost a total of 43 pounds. My current weight is 151 pounds. I feel happy and relieved. I am approached at work by my colleagues and friends. As I said before, I have tried different programs but this by far has been the most rewarding and noticeable. I am forever grateful to you.
I would recommend your program to anyone who is serious and committed to achieving their weight loss goals.
