Larchmont, NY |
DO NOT GO TO THIS OFFICE!! Their wait time is outrageous! They put up a sign that the average wait time is 2+ hours...you see that at amusement parks, but at a doctor's office is completely unacceptable. Why do they even schedule appointments?? I spent a total of 3 and half hours there to be seen by doctor for 5 minutes. There is. No compassion from staff. Once again don't go unless you want to raise your blood pressure!! If I could give this office minus stars I would.

If I had to pick one Dr to go to for everything, it would be Dr Shein. He is a very intelligent and knowledgeable Dr. I would have to say he the the most talented surgeon I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Bedside manners? The best. The office staff is great as well. Expect to wait a while for your visit as they seem to run behind often. But he is well worth the wait. Bring a book if you have to, he will not disappoint. Thank you Dr Shein for saving my life!!

Wait time at this office is unacceptable and disrespectful to patients. Normal wait time between check in and being called in is one and a half hours. Instead of scheduling for actual time they give appointments only to keep you waiting. Absolutely deplorable.
