"Dr. MacGillivray is clearly very knowledgeable in his specialty. He is confident in what he diagnoses & with his prognosis. He is clear & concise with what he says. The appointments go very quickly, but if you forget to ask any questions directly to the doctor, you can always call the office & they will assist. We were also very satisfied with HSS. We needed to go there for MRI's & for 2 surgeries. It is a well-oiled machine: from the doorman to the intake personnel to the nurses to the aftercare personnel. Everyone knows their job completely."
"In order to keep my appointments I take a two hour train ride and then two subways uptown. Sometimes I spend more time traveling than seeing the doctor, but I feel it is a good time investment and don’t mind at all. And since I became a grandma for the first time in September, I need my joints and body to function properly to keep up with her!"
"My game is not a sport. It's the game of life. I have an autoimmune disease called myositis. My treatment includes oral prednisone and monthly infusions of IVIG. When I first got sick almost 20 years ago I was 44. I was an elementary school teacher but had to leave due to extreme weakness in my arms and legs. I could barely walk or bathe myself. I refused to just give in to the disease and view my life as over. "
"I am a professional Martial Arts instructor and was able after completing rehab to demonstrate moves I had not been able to show for years. "
"After having two arthroscopic hip surgeries with Dr. Bryan Kelly, I've not only returned to my normal level of activity, but I've improved. More importantly, I am pain free. "
