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!

I am pleased to announce that this September, my family and I will be participating in our first ever NYC Buddy Walk to support children with Down Syndrome. This cause is very dear to me as my daughter Ciara was born with Down Syndrome. Through organizations such as these, there has been an overwhelming amount of awareness and support towards developing educational programs to help the hundreds of children, including my very own Ciara. She is just 5 years old and loves to dance, learn, and laugh like any other child. For this reason and for the hundreds of other children we are walking to bring awareness and support to our special friends.

The below link will take you Team Ciara’s page. There, you can register to walk or make a donation on our page. All donations go directly to the National Down Syndrome Society.

Your support is greatly appreciated.

The devastation in the Philippines is horrific and increasing with each day. Although, this Typhoon happened thousands of miles away, its effects still hit home. Many of our patients and MaxWell Medical team are from the Philippines and have family members there.

All month long we will be matching all donations made at each one of our four locations.

Thank you for your support.
