Our Practice

We offer a boutique setting, personalized and concierge-style care directly with the end provider. We also have a nonexistent infection rate from our highly-controlled and monitored clinic. 

Direct Surgery Manhattan’s state of the art surgical facility is located in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper East Side and offers several hotel options for traveling patients. From the moment our patients arrive in New York City, DSM makes your experience as relaxing as possible.

Founder, Dr. Robert Haar, built DSM to help take care of patients who are either uninsured or who are members of self-funded insurance plans. Our free market prices offer an affordable alternative to hospital procedures which are marked up exponentially. At our outpatient surgical facility in New York City, patients receive the highest caliber care.

  • Telehealth consultations available.
  • We accept direct/cash pay for treatments and surgery.

Our Patient Experience

Day 1: Arrival & Examination

Direct Surgery Manhattan’s (DSM) car service will meet our patients at the airport or train station and transport them to our facility where they will meet the staff and their surgeon. Preliminary examinations will be conducted as well as filling out any necessary paperwork. Patients will be able to ask questions, discuss the procedure and be given pre-surgical instructions.


Day 2: Procedure Day

Today is the first day of a healthier and happier life. Patients should arrive at least 30 minutes before their scheduled procedure. After surgery, patients rest and recuperate in our Recovery Rooms and are attended to by our Nursing Staff. When the patient is alert and awake, post-surgical instructions are given as well as any medications. Because of all Regency Healthcare’s procedures are performed on an outpatient basis, after surgery patients will not need to be admitted or stay overnight in our practice.

Day 3: Rest & Recuperation

On the day following surgery, patients are encouraged to rest, relax and limit activity. Our nursing staff is on call if patients have any questions following surgery.


Day 4: Post-Op Exam

On the last day, patients will return to our practice to meet again with their surgeon for post-op exams. After examination, and answering any questions patients may have, the patient is free to return home and start enjoying a healthier and happier life.
