Patient Testimonials

This content was provided by Dr. Stein Office staff was courteous and Dr Stein was very thorough.

Everyone, especially Dana Silver was wonderful. A kind and thoughtful physicians assistant and clinic.

Dr. Stein radiates competence and compassion. Unlike the other (highly rated) Orthopedic Surgeon that I have seen, his approach places surgery as the last treatment; not the first.



I had shoulder pain for 7 months and Dr. Stein was the first person to prescribe the correct physical therapy.


Dr. Stein and his entire staff are excellent. Very professional, caring and responsive. Dr. Stein is very easy to talk to and is excellent with his diagnosis, surgery and followup. I can't say enough good things about him. Clearly he is a leader in his field. I recommend him highly. He will not disappoint.

Dr. Stein and his office were great to deal with, they explained all aspects of my surgery and rehab, and answered all my questions. I was never rushed, and I felt comfortable that I was getting quality care.

Very professional and direct. Extremely hands on, especially with the surgery.
