12/04/14 5 5 5 5 Truly the "running doc ". Great diagnostician ! Found him by reading Meb's book; he was the one that healed Meb before he won NYC! I had a foot problem for years and never solved until Dr Maharam diagnosed the problem and made his custom orthotics using that computer scan with his measurements ! To that person who wrote he couldn't run in them and they were for ladies he must be a moron that didn't break them! Professionals fly to see this guy and wear his orthotics ! They cured my problem ! If you want the best you must see this guy ! The " Jimmy Andrews for runners ! "

12/07/13 2 2 1 1 This doctor is a complete ripoff. I went to him for orthotics and he told me they would be customized for me. After paying $800 for the orthotics, I was not able to run in them. After seeing another doctor and showing him the orthotics Maharam gave me, I was told that they were not customized, that they were fine for a little old lady not a runner. Maharam didn't even make a mold of my foot, I don't know how they can be custom if he just makes them up on his computer. After telling me that with a letter from his office my insurance would pay for the orthotics, I didn't get a penny. He rides on his past experience and doesn't know a thing. Don't see him!

27/01/12 5 5 5 5 I love this doctor. He is the best! He really knows his stuff, hooks you up with the best rehab folks and specialists if you need surgery. Can't say enough good things about him. He's also a sports fanatic! He loves his work and his patients, and he makes you laugh even when you have a bad injury and are in pain. Great man! Kudos!  Respond

13/07/08 5 5 5 5 By far knows running and running injuries better than anyone! If you have an injury, this guy will find the answer to get you back. The truly is no one like him. Does not take insurance but I got my out of network benefit back promptly from my insurance. If you want the best, sometimes you just have to pay!  Respond
