"As your physician, my goal is to truly be here for you – whether you need hands-on treatment, detailed advice, or simply someone who will be there to listen and offer support. As my valued patient, you deserve nothing less." - Alex Visco, M.D.

Our practice’s unique “whole-patient” approach comes from Dr. Visco. Troubled by what he witnessed during his first job out of residency – rushed appointments, limited access to personal, hands-on medical care and physical therapy, and instances when patients were treated poorly by office staff – he decided to do things differently when he opened his own practice. With his colleagues, Dr. Visco is committed to providing patients with:
American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, International Spine Intervention Society
New York Presbyterian, The University Hospital of Columbia and Cornell
University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey – New Jersey Medical School
I was very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Visco. I walked in, unable to move my neck without pain, and in just a few visits he put me on the road to recovery. I am back in the gym and doing really well. I feel confident that if I have another problem, I have a reliable doctor to go to. He is so easy to talk to and puts you at ease right away. The staff is so amicable and helpful, and they always have a smile and a caring attitude. I would recommend Dr. Visco to anyone suffering from back or neck pain.– Ellen L
I have just completed treatment for a shoulder tear. The range of services under one roof provided incredible convenience. Dr. Visco delivered excellent care and looked beyond my injury to make sure I had all the treatments necessary to ensure a full recovery. My physical therapist adjusted my exercises with skill and care. And the support staff was very professional. If you need an orthopedist, chiropractor or physical therapist, I strongly recommend The Spine & Sports Health Center.– Mary M
I've been going to The Spine & Sports Health Center for a sports injury for seven weeks now. It's definitely the best clinic I've been to. The personal, one-on-one service you get from Dr. Kelly and Dr. Visco is second to none. They are all very passionate about their jobs and love what they do. The office staff is very friendly, too. I have also been getting chiropractic treatment from Dr. Kelly. In the past I had been skeptical about the benefits of chiropractic treatment. If I had only known then what I know now! Since beginning treatment, I have not felt this alive in years. I am definitely a fan now!– Sonia P
Dr. Alex Visco of The Spine & Sports Health Center was the fourth doctor I sought help from. Dr. Visco sat face-to-face at eye level and listened to my complaints. He asked pertinent questions—listened to my answers—and got straight to the point and the root of my pain. Dr. Visco did what the previous doctors could not/did not do. Dr. Visco administered a series of treatments (after each one, he listened to me describe how I felt) and tailored each subsequent treatment, which finally alleviated my pain. When I first saw Dr. Visco, my pain level was 10+. I am now living pain-free!– Sharon M
I was patient here for three months after shattering my elbow snowboarding. The team is phenomenal. The physical therapists worked with my arm in a way I'll never forget! Yet what I enjoyed most was their accommodating approach. They give each patient one-on-one time during every session. And Dr. Kelly and Dr. Visco truly love helping patients. Even the receptionist is amazing. She worked with my schedule and always found a way to get me in. I totally recommend The Spine & Sports Health Center to anyone– Jerome D
I had a great experience with The Spine & Sports Health Center. I went there to gain strength and reduce pain in my left shoulder and neck. Dr. Visco was committed to finding the root of my discomfort and weakness. After a few months of physical therapy with Dr. Nunez, I became stronger and rarely complained of neck and shoulder pain. His knowledge and patience was very helpful during my therapy. I strongly recommend the group of talented doctors and exceptionally helpful office staff at The Spine & Sports Health Center!– Brianna B
