Truly remarkable. Dr. Clarke has a supernatural understanding of human physiology and puts that knowledge to use by nearly working miracles. Several finishes of the NYC Marathon were more her doing than mine. She and the entire crew exude an intelligent, caring, compassionate and effective program of treatments that has no equal! Highly recommended.
My experience at the Urban Wellness Clinic has been an absolute success! I sincerely recommend it. I came in at 4 months pregnant with debilitating migraines and in few sessions, Dr. Kiberd and physical therapist Bethany helped my headaches go away as well as my back pain. I also had the chance to take personal training lessons at the Clinic with Matt who designed with me a pregnancy-safe work-out routine. The Clinic is extremely clean and pleasant, their material is adapted for pregnancy. The reception staff is very helpful, especially to navigate insurance claims.
Each and every individual here is truly excellent. No other medical/health practice has had a more positive impact on my physical health. They really understand how to read your complex body and pinpoint what's amiss. All the while, they're so down to earth that it feels like I'm visiting old friends every time I step into the clinic. GO HERE - YOUR BODY WILL THANK YOU (even if they're out of network for you too - it's absolutely worth it).
I have gone to Urban Wellness Clinic for many years and they have helped me immensely. The services are very high quality, and I feel like I'm in really good hands. They have helped me with certain health problems that my primary care doctor has not been able to (a severe sinus headache, for instance) and painful muscle aches and spasms. I often get instant relief when I go there. Dr. Clarke is very gifted, and I see her most often. With Dr. Clarke, Bethany (the massage therapist), and Matt, I have found a lot of relief for my hip bursitis. They are very knowledgeable and explain things well. Also, UWC takes my health insurance, so I'm very lucky! Everyone there is friendly and helpful. I trust them and I recommend them to all my friends and acquaintances.
After having varied success with a few other PT practices in NYC, I sought out NKT practitioners and found Urban Wellness Clinic. Thank goodness I did. In only two weeks, my back pain had diminished by roughly 75%. Today, I’m pain-free in the gym and out. Urban Wellness Clinic helped me get healthy and tap into a level of strength I never even knew I had.
For the last ten years, I've been addressing chronic issues stemming from decades of playing violin and teaching fitness. I've worked with more than a handful of therapists and clinics in the New York City area with underwhelming passable results. My sessions with Dr. Emily Kiberd and her Urban Wellness Clinic team are by far the most thorough, thoughtful, holistic, and have been the most effective in my daily movement practice (teaching fitness, triathlon training, playing violin). They truly work as a team to help find the root of the issues and make sure to communicate to both me and each other how I'm progressing so we're all on the same page.
I am at the beginning of my process toward a pain-free life and am very impressed with Dr. Clarke and with Matt. The work is tough but they exude kindness and good humor along with their professionalism.
I couldn't walk straight after a sudden lock of my neck muscles. Within a day i was able to move my neck and was back to normal after a week. The entire team is very professional and showed me plenty of exercises to prevent future incidents. thank you guys!
I'll make this really simple. Go! Dr. Clarke, Bethany and Matt (actually everyone at Urban) make a great team! For me, life got in the way of my personal well being. Being an ex-college athlete I always just expected to get back in shape easily, but a few injuries derailed my effort. It wasn't until injured my lower back that I realized I needed an experienced team to guide me through the process. They understood my situation, ask what (if any) are new developments and treat me accordingly. They also listen and expect me to do the work (homework) as well. It's not a pampering session; its treatment and teaching! Very glad I found them! 5 Stars!
I came to Urban Wellness for adjustments during my half marathon training and was thrilled with the results - one day I walked in with a headache and another day with knee pain and would leave the office with immediate relief. They also helped me address underlying imbalances, as well as scar tissue from previous injuries. I noticed I was able to breathe more deeply and fully and felt energized on my runs in the days after the adjustments. They truly practice holistic care - and my time with Matt helped me maximize my time between appointments with specific exercises to strengthen areas of weakness/imbalance. I love their team approach and can't recommend them highly enough! When I sustained a foot injury, they were most helpful in arranging x-rays and follow up care with a podiatrist covered in-network with my insurance. I'm confident I will be back for tune ups in the future and highly recommend you make an appointment if you have any sort of physical ailment. They helped me above and beyond my expectations!
I went to Urban Wellness after I injured my shoulder rock climbing. My sister had been going for a few years and had seen so much improvement with her hip problems that I knew they would be able to do something for me. They were able to quickly diagnose the issue and help get my shoulder stable enough to begin doing PT. I was unable to lift my arm more than 90 degrees last summer when I injured it and now I have full mobility and am climbing harder than ever. They don't just look at the body part that is injured but do a full body assessment because they understand how one body part can contribute to issues in another body part. Expect to learn a thing or two about your body that you didn't know. Highly recommend!
Where do I begin?! I have been a patient of Urban Wellness for about 4 months & absolutely love it. I’ve been worked on by Dr. Kiberd, Dr. Clarke, Beth & Matt — they are all equally amazing. The ladies at the front desk, Sasha & Mel, are so compassionate & friendly. This office truly feels like home. I always enjoy being in their presence. Trust me, you will NOT be disappointed visiting this practice.
Amazon! Dr. Clarke listened to all of my concerns and is helping find a plan that works for me ! Other Doctors would brush me off, or give me prescriptions. I see Dr.Clarke for both nutrition and chiropractic services. Sasha is amazing at the front desk and knows her stuff. Highly recommend Dr. Clarke and Urban Wellness Clinic.
For a place that most people go to when they’re trying to overcome pain/injury, the Urban Wellness Clinic’s atmosphere is fantastic. My first visit, I saw Dr. Kiberd and Beth. I was having severe back pain (sciatic nerve pain, etc) and they basically helped me shift the tide to recovery from day one. Tips on my diet, stretching, exercises, etc. I was visiting the office a few times a week and was feeling better after each visit. When Dr. Kiberd wasn’t in the office, I saw Dr. Clarke. She was amazing as well. Last but certainly not least was the strength training. I was actively training before my injury so my main goal was to get back to that level. Once I was able to move and shake a bit, I started finishing my sessions with Matt. In a nutshell, the guy is nice, knowledgeable and a wonderful trainer. Urban Wellness Clinic is a NYC treasure. All positives!
This place should be renamed to "Urban Allstar Clinic" because the team here is incredible. Each one of them go above and beyond in helping to address issues, correct them, and then to strengthen the body. I highly recommend anyone looking to get into shape, or evaluate their physical situation to give them a visit.
