Dr Stein fixed a very complicated hand and wrist injury with plates and pins from a roll over Jeep. The last surgery he did was in 2010. I get yearly xrays to make sure everything is in place. My current doctor was shocked. He told me I should send him flowers and a thank you card. Apparently I should have no function at all, and despite the pain from the cold weather here on the east coast, it works perfectly.

Dr. Stein is fantastic at what he does. Another doctor had worked on my wrist and really made a mess of it. Fortunately, in the nick of time, I found Dr. Stein and he was able to correct the botched job of the previous doctor, Not only that but Dr. Stein and his nurse Jenn are both wonderful to work with. Kudos and thanks to you both.

Really great professional service. Dr. Stein was very personable and debunked all the info I thought I should be doing to help my wrist heal. He immediately knew what was wrong based on my symptoms and educated me on the process of recovery. Very thankful and glad I visited him!

I saw Dr. Stein for Dupuytren's Contracture in my left hand. When Dr. Stein suggested surgery, it wasn't much of a choice for me, given the debilitating condition. The surgery went very well. When the bandage and splint came off, 10 days later, I was greatly astonished about the minimal amount of incision. I am very satisfied with the progression of the healing, the regaining of function in my left hand, and the allover treatment received by Dr. Stein and his staff.

Dr. Stein performed 4 surgeries on me in 1997. Bilateral carpal tunnel and ulnar nerve transposition bilaterally. I would trust him to work on me again. I write this now in 2017 because I am in need of evaluation of a new injury to my shoulder and I don't want anyone else .

Andrew Stein fixed my cubital tunnel syndrome. He, his Physician Assistant Jennifer Schofield, and his office staff are very friendly and easy to work with. I developed symptoms of left cubital tunnel syndrome in 2011. The symptoms were misdiagnosed by a general practitioner. When I finally went to an orthopedic surgeon at Kaiser in 2015, he didn't recommend surgery. Thank goodness I knew about Andrew Stein through my mother's workman's comp. He recommended surgery for my left arm in 2015. I ha

I'll be honest when I first heard about Dr. Stein I was having doubts because of the bad reviews but I went to see him anyway and I'm glad I did. Dr. Stein is wonderful. I had two surgeries and they both turned out great. Don't let a couple bad reviews scare you. He is very professional he explains everything to you and his staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back to Dr. Stein. Couldn't ask for a better doctor! THANKS Dr. Stein!

I broke my pinky at work, and workers comp sent me to a doctor who did surgery which didn't go too well, and after 5 months I was not able to move it,I contacted the insurance and asked to be sent to another doctor for a second opinion I was sent to Dr. Stein, and he told me I needed another surgery, it took less than a week to schedule appointment for surgery, I wish the workers comp insurance would've sent me here from the beginning

I was referred to Dr. Stein from the ER with a laceration on the back of my hand, just over the knuckle. Small but with concern for tendon injury. Dr. Stein and his staff explained all of my options. Carefully listened to any and all information I could provide. They asked about and assessed every aspect of my injury and treatment in several different ways. He explained each step and options thoroughly, offering but not pushing for surgery. I'm now all healed up and happy. No surgery required.

My appointment with this doctor was very disturbing. Who started the appointment by telling me workers comp horror stories- its unlikely thr surgery is approved, it can take years, you can run out benefits before you're healed, using your own insurance would be faster. "You are likely pre-diabetic and that's why you have carpal tunnel, not due to repetitive work, that is a myth." "Women are built differently, and that's why women have higher instances of carpal tunnel than men." HORRIFIC

I first saw Dr Stein as a second opinion ten years ago about my carpal tunnel and trigger finger. Since that time I have had multuple procedures done by him including these, cubital tuneel and frozen shoulder. He is confident, professional, tells you all of your options and explains thouroughly your conditions. His procedures fix what is wrong so that you do not have reoccurances. I would never seen another physician for any hand or arm procedure and always recommend him to others!
