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!

US Open has finally taken full “swing”. If this summer hasn’t “served” you well, you can “set” your calendar to tune into “matches” all week long. Would you rather play than watch? Show your “love” at these NYC courts! (Playing tennis may be even more fun than using all these puns!)

Check out:

Sportime Tennis Programs

Dubbed “finest tennis facilities in New York State”. membership allows you to play all year long! Whether it’s your first volley or you’re training for doubles, they are equipped with a “tennis concierge” service to meet all your racket needs!

Vanderbilt Tennis and Fitness Club (Sutton East Tennis Club or Yorkville Tennis Club) 

Location, location, location! If not just for a casual weekday match, play at these courts for their really interesting locations. Vanderbilt Court is located in Grand Central Terminal and Sutton East Tennis Club is located directly under the Queensboro Bridge.

Perfect your swing at any of these tennis courts for a chance to say, “You’ve been served!”

Rock Star of the Month: Ronnabelle Berdos, RPT

In Health, Lifestyle, Nutrition, Our Staff, Physical Therapy on 01/23/2012 at 11:18 am

It isn’t unusual for this person to be too far from a step ladder or two. She stands at just less than 5 feet and is a bundle of joy at our office. But, don’t let her height fool you she’ll do some serious work on those aches and pains! There is no doubt why this fearsome therapist, Ronnabelle Berdos is our recently engaged Rock Star of the Month!

We were able to capture Belle for a few moments to learn more about her before she gets hitched!

10 Things You Probably Don’t Know about Ronnabelle, Belle, Bella-rina Berdos:

1. I may not be the next Top Chef but, you should see me in the kitchen.

2. The critics give it two thumbs up; I make the best flan around!

3. I don’t have any tattoos but, I LOVE ROCK & ROLL!

4. I grew up in the Philippines surrounded by water but, I never learned to swim.

5. I’m the tiniest person at MaxWell Medical.

6. I’m vertically challenged and because of my small stature I have to wear a size 16 from the kids’ section!

7. Although I’ve never been a fan of sports other than Basketball or Boxing, my fiancé’s love for ESPN has me tuning in.

8. Others may be fans of Twilight but, I love curling up to a New Age Thought Book.

9. Whether it’s by force or to overcome my fear, I still need to muster up the courage to go on rides!

10. The three c’s I love: Church, cleaning and couponing! (Not necessarily in that order)

Belle gains her strength from helping others and is certainly able to DO MORE! She may be scared of heights but, there isn’t a trigger pain that she can’t tackle!
