Knee Pain

Pain in the knee with walking or exercising can result from soft tissue problems in the thigh and calf or from arthritis of the knee or even a combination of both. 

First, I’ll determine the origin of your knee pain and then I’ll use a combination of therapies to help eliminate your pain and improve your range of motion.

I also work closely with Dr. Craig Dushey at Mt. Sinai, a hip and knee orthopedic specialist. If necessary to clarify the diagnosis, we’ll arrange for an x-ray and orthopedic evaluation of your knee.

Fees & Insurance


Will you file a claim with my insurance company or is that my responsibility?

Yes. If we are under contract with your insurance company, we will collect the co-payment at the time of your visit and submit the claim for you. 


What are the rates if you are out of network with my insurance plan?

If we do not currently participate in your health insurance plan and you have out of network
benefits we will file a claim directly with your insurance company.  Please call the office to
find out what your ‘co-pay’ would be.


We never perform any service without discussing it, and its cost with you beforehand, and receiving your approval. We are very respectful around finances, and no one ever receives a bill from “out of nowhere” from us!

Give a call to discuss your specific health concerns with Dr. Kowal and he’ll be able to clarify what finances, evaluative services and/or care would look like for you personally.
