Today, marks the end of our week-long anniversary celebration. We are truly humbled by these past ten years. Our founders’ journey is one of dedication, resilience & true passion to care for people. They began their careers in this industry years before MaxWell Medical was born. They understood the strength it would take to truly care for people in pain. They knew New Yorkers didn’t have to suffer anymore. Their day didn’t end at the end of their workday, it was only just beginning. They wanted to help and show everyone that relief is within reach. They believed a doctor’s office didn’t have to feel like one. Here, you’re greeted with a friendly smile and you can smile back knowing you’re on the road to recovery.

Our doors opened months before the recession, it wasn’t the ideal time to start a small business but, we believed in our doctors, our therapists, our team. It was difficult to see our growing patient base start to lose their jobs. Patients came from Hypo, Bear Sterns, Merrill Lynch sullen & defeated. Without the insurance we accepted in their office, they thought they’d have to say good-bye. Instead, we created leniency programs to continue their treatment at our office.  We even started hiring more of a support staff, who better to work with MaxWell Medical than former patients.

Year after year, our dedicated team treated thousands of people. Together, we’ve celebrated birthdays and weddings, birth announcements, first home purchases, and together, we supported each other through loss and hard times. Our little team of 8 has grown to over 100. Our amazingly diverse, American & multicultural team has crossed Marathon finish lines together, walked for a cure for AIDS, built homes in Tijuana, Mexico with Esperanza International. We’ve matched donations to support the National Down Syndrome Society, Ronald McDonald House of NY, March of Dimes, typhoon in the Philippines, earthquake relief in Haiti. Each charity was special to us and it meant something to someone helping to heal our patients. We are so grateful to our team. Without their immense knowledge, their support, their innovative ideas, their encouragement, and especially their laughter we wouldn’t have made it to 10. We really are a family.

We’d like to thank our patients. Our weekend warriors, those mothers and fathers whose days only seem to get longer, those typing away at their desks, those who liked us on Facebook, referred their friends and family, those who follow us on Instagram and twitter and join in on all the fun at our offices. We are honored to have seen you, heard you and helped you. There are hundreds of other facilities in Manhattan but, you chose us and for that we thank you!

We are looking forward to another 10, 20, 30… years helping everyday New Yorkers/Bronxites/Manhattanites/Queensites/Brooklynites/Staten Islanders/Long Islanders & New Jerseyans. We are continuing to grow! We are expanding to the West side and beyond. We’re always looking to add to our MaxWell family and it could even be YOU!

We’re 10!

Berry Breakdown: 7 Fighter Fruits You Should Eat Everyday

In Lifestyle, Nutrition on 07/20/2016 at 1:05 pm

“Eat a berry every day to keep the doctor away” isn’t the same health chant you’ve heard over the years but it may as well be. Berries aren’t just a topping anymore. These berries are extremely high in health benefits and if consumed daily can help to fight diseases, increase vitality and physical strength! Packed with antioxidants, there’s a reason these berries are berrytastic! Munch on these 7 Berries Daily:

7 Fighter Fruits:

1)     Goji Berries- Composed of 18 essential amino acid, vitamins B1, B2, B6, and E, these berries pack a punch that’ll help fight negative health conditions and protect your liver from contaminates.

2)     Blueberries- Known as the antioxidant powerhouse, these berries have phytonutrients which aid years of cell damage. Overtime, our tissues and cells deteriorate and blueberries help to keep this from happening.

3)     Bilberries- Although, they are almost exactly like blueberries. These miniature size blueberries are proving that size does not matter. Bilberries possess components that reduce the occurrence of poor vision, cataracts, and increase blood flow to the circulatory vessels.

4)     Strawberries- These berries aren’t just delicious. They contain high levels of antioxidant phytonutrients known as phenols. Phenols can protect against heart-related diseases, reduce the risks of cancer, and can serve as an anti-inflammatory.

5)     Blackberries- Definitely not the black sheep of the berries, they contain vitamins C, E, and ellagic acid that have been proven to combat against chronic diseases and compounds that fight cancer.

6)     Cherries- Featured in some classic songs and synonymous with toilet bombs these berries are high in anthocyanis and bioflavonoids. The same substances that fight against inflammatory conditions reduce the symptoms of arthritis and migraine headaches.

7)     Acai Berries- Newest of the health-fighting berry bunch, acai berries have been used as powerfully healing, energy-boosting fruits. One acai berry holds ten times the amount of antioxidant vitamins as grapes, and two times the amount of blueberries. Take that blueberry!

Finding creative ways to consume these berries aren’t so difficult either. Throw them in a shake, top them off in your yogurt, or eat them as they are. Berries have proved to do the body good. MaxWell Medical wants you to spend this summer feeling BERRY GOOD!

Health Fix Mixes: 5 Juice Recipes that Cleanse

In Health, Lifestyle, Nutrition on 07/12/2016 at 1:45 pm

“Juice Cleansing” has gotten a bad rap. Sorry Beyoncé, the Lemon Detox Diet isn’t going to cut it anymore. Lemon with a splash of cayenne pepper won’t keep you going after a few hours let alone an entire day. The real goal of a juice cleanse shouldn’t just be the weight loss, juicing should energize and detoxify your body.  These 5 Juice Recipes will help you consume more fruits and vegetables and get you on the right “nutritional” track:

5 Juice Recipes that Cleanse:

1)     Cataract Fighting Carrots

  • 4 carrots (chop off tops and tails)
  • 4 celery stalks
  • Handful of parsley (with stems)
  • 1 small zucchini (don’t peel)
  • ½ of a beet
  • ¼ grapefruit (peeled)

2)     Gaga over Greens

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Bunches each of green kale, spinach, collard greens and water cress
  • 1 tomato
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 3 carrots

3)     Citrus Chops

  • 1 apple
  • 2 peaches (cut in half, seeds removed)
  • 2 oranges (peeled)
  • ½ cup of blueberries, raspberries, and/or blackberries

4)     Fruit & Veggie Punch

  • 1 orange
  • 1 grapefruit
  • 1 cucumber
  • 3 tomatoes

5)     Flavor Flav

  • 4 medium tomatoes
  • 1 bunch of spinach or kale
  • ½ of a bell pepper
  • ½ small lemon
  • ¼ cup of water
  • 1 beet (peeled with tops and tails chopped off)

*Recipes may require a juice and/or blender. Always try to choose organic fruits and vegetables.

There isn’t a fruit or vegetable mix that doesn’t satisfy your healthy fix. Be sure to try these and some of your own. Vitamins and minerals in fruits and vegetables can detoxify your body inside and out and get you ready for your weight-loss plan. MaxWell Medical wants you to JUICE MORE!
