I love HSS, they found treatments for me that when other doctors said there was nothing else. All over the country it can be months wait to see a doctor. HSS doesn't take your insurance at all? Yes, they are way on the East side but the 2nd Ave subway can make the walk shorter.
I've heard the NYU Joint disease is good. But I only know HSS. I live upstate now, but still go there because of the low knowledge level for many doctors.
