Although there was a slight wait, the Dr. was very attentive, was able to understand my problem, and was very thorough in explaining my options for treatment. I heard he was one of the best urology surgeons, so I found him and made the appointment.
in New York, NY |
My father had a medical emergency which we didn't realize. Dr. Shtainer saw him the same day, admitted him to the hospital and supervised his care personally throughout. We always had his mobile phone for communication. We highly recommend him.
in Brooklyn, NY |
I would like to recommend Dr. Shtainer because he was able to diagnose my son's problem in a single visit and he has an ultrasound in the office. I didn't have to cancel a work day to take my son to radiology.
in Corona, NY |
I brought me son to see Dr. Shtainer who was able to review his medical history and explain everything that was done at other doctors. He then was able to stop some of his medications which were not effective. It is nice to finally have such an attentive doctor.
Brooklyn, NY |
Doctor didn't explain the medical condition, or what kind of medication he is prescribing and didn't even answer the questions and concerns i had with my child's medical condition. The whole visit with the doctor took 5 minutes including ultrasound and the amount of time it took him to send electronic prescription to my pharmacy. The last words from the doctor were you can go now.
It is unfortunate that you had less than a good experience visiting our practice. It is our goal to understand and diagnose your child's problem and be thorough with our recommendations. Please contact our practice or schedule a follow up appointment to assure that all your questions are answered and you are satisfied with our care. Sincerely, Dr. Shtainer 212-243-5300
