Patient Reviews

The visit to Dr. Cleeman’s office was, without a doubt, the most efficient, friendly, professional visit that I have experienced in years.   The office is well appointed, the staff very helpful and friendly, and Dr. Cleeman was the consummate medical professional.  Without hesitation whatsoever, I would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic services. The visit to his office reaffirmed my belief that there are top-notch medical providers out there, despite the pressures of HMO’s and ACA.  Well done Dr. Cleeman and Staff.

Great experience from the moment I walked in. Receptionist and nursing staff are pleasant, Dr. Cleeman took the time to explain his findings and the type of surgical procedure I will have done on my shoulder. I definitely recommend visiting the Manhattan Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Center

I really liked Dr. Cleeman. He took his time to ask me questions and give me a comprehensive exam. I’ve been having major knee trouble that nobody seems to have been able to figure out, including two other orthopedic surgeons. Dr. Cleeman seemed to understand my issues and gave me a course of action that made sense to me. I recommend!
