WELCOME TO NEW ERA MEDICINE

FOR PHYSICIANS

I am Dr. Ruth Reid-Thornton, board certified in physiatry, and I've been practicing physical medicine and rehabilitation for 15 years. I opened my own office, New Era Medicine PLLC, in Staten Island in 2010.
I am ready to help you treat your patients with neurologic, neuromuscular and musculoskeletal problems.
I am able to evaluate, diagnose and treat their ailments, keeping you informed of their progress. I incorporate both traditional medicine practices with evidence-based alternative therapies to provide patients with the optimum, individualized treatment plan. If your patients need electrodiagnostic studies for nerve entrapments (such as carpel tunnel), for peripheral neuropathies or for radiculopathies, I am able to perform these as well using state of the art diagnostic equipment.

Patients tell me they appreciate the time I take to listen to them and to explain to them their condition in terms they understand. And referring physicians appreciate that they are placing their patients in competent, caring hands while being abreast of their disagnosis, treatment and prognosis. My office address is 1425 Victory Blvd, Staten Island, NY 10301. located at TLC Clove Lake Physical Therapy. My office phone number (and FAX) is (866) 715-1727. You can contact TLC Clove Lake PT directly at (718) 698-3055.

FOR PATIENTS

A "physiatrist" or physical medicine and rehabilitation medicine specialist, is a physician who specializes in the treatment of patients with disabilities. Our mission at New Era Medicine, PLLC, is "to restore and optimize life". Because you are more then an organ or a body part, we evaluate not only the problem, but look at how it affects yourlife. The goal of rehabilitation medicine is to help restore function and return your life as much as possible, to normal. We explore every treatment option. We draw from both traditional medicine as well as alternative therapies to develop an individualized treatment plan. If you are suffering from pain, tingling, numbness, weakness or other nerve or muscle related complaint, your doctor may refer you for an EMG. While thistest is somewhat uncomforable, it provides valuable information and is important in many cases for treatment decisions. This study is performed by our physician who will explain every step and do their best to put you at ease with her gentle approach. We accept most major insurances.
