Review of Dr. Shein

-NY |

Warning!!! Give yourself at least 2-3+ hours for a 15-30 visit. This is the 3rd visit and have had to wait an average of 3 hours just to see Dr. David Shien for 15-30 mins. 2 of the visits were supposed to be at 8 am and both visits Dr. Shein called in late by 1/2 hour then showed up 1 hour late. Waiting room (20-24 capacity) is over packed with people waiting and waiting. Dr. Shein appears competent once you finally see him. Unless you cannot find a decent doctor or don't mind waiting for hours

Review of Dr. Shein


I have NEVER had a worse experience than I had with Dr. Shein.Waited for 3 1/2 hours,then he was rushing us out! He didn't ask questions,I had to suggest treatment for my Dad, which he administered, quickly and without any compassion. My Dad now has a giant bruise above and below the injection site, which he has NEVER had before when being treated. He then proceeded to talk into his phone to dictate his chart which is complete RUDE and didn't even speak to us or allow us to speak. HORRIBLE DOC!

Review of Dr. Bergang

- in Staten Island, NY |

I've been going to Dr. Bergang for years. I feel lucky to have found someone so experienced, knowledgeable, and compassionate. She is a doctor who is willing to listen and who takes time to explain everything. She's been there for me, keeping my pain at bay, always concerned and very patient.

Review of Dr. Bergang

- in Manhattan , NY |

Dr Bergang (Dr B )is the best doctor I ever had. She’s warm, naturally friendly, very thorough, takes time to dissect every problem /pain area & great listener. However, most outstanding quality about is that she really cares. She’s a patient advocate who fights for her patients to make sure you get proper treatment you deserve. I wouldn’t go to anyone else. They don’t make doctors like her anymore. Only slight negative =she always booked 1 month in advance bc she’s so grear. Book early .

Review of Dr. Bergang

- |

Dr. Bergang cares about her patients and about helping to find the right solutions for their individual situations. There is no one-size-fits-all approach. If you do your own research, she will patiently explain the pros and cons of any treatment option you are considering and may try one you favor. She will not recommend surgery if it is not warranted and if other treatments have not been tried first. She is experienced with acupuncture and will help you find low-cost options if needed.

TRIPLE CONFIRM YOUR APPOINTMENTS! I made an appointment, even confirmed it the day before. But when I showed up, staff told me the appointment was two weeks away and refused to accommodate me.

Review of Dr. Yoon

- in NYC |

I'be read prior negative reviews and they are completely untrue. Dr. Yoon is great, very friendly and really knowledgeable. She diagnosed the problem right away and explained in details how it occurred. The front desk is extremely professional and nice as well. Overall, phenomenal experience I would totally recommend her.
