2nd opinion on knee replacement
Dr. Millstein was incredibly detailed n comprehensive in his recommendations. Instead of diagnosing right away after seeing my X-rays, he began by asking about my current mobility and things I can no longer do. I replied I still walk 2-4 miles a day with no pain. I am not able to snow ski anymore nor kneel. We talked about previous treatments which were cortisone n silicon shots. I felt he was honest n and thorough n provided recommendations based on current symptoms. Based n his analysis I decided to wait for knee replacement since I am still functional and active. I will continue to see him for future assessments. I enjoyed meeting Dr. Millstein, he is an A+ in my book. Awesome n compassionate doctor.

Dr. Millstein is kind and generous with his time. His staff is excellent. I was terrified of The shoulder replacement surgery that I needed. Dr.Milstein was patient and straightforward about what to expect and gave me some excellent advice on post surgery practices. He is an excellent surgeon and a very understanding human. he also has a great sense of humor.

Excellent doctor!
Dr. Millstein was friendly, listened carefully to my symptoms, and gave me information about my condition. He gave me an almost painless injection in my knee. And it helped right away. Great!

Great Orthopedic “El Gringo” Dr Millstein
My 2 visit I had with Dr Millstein were amazing. The staff is very friendly and polite. I’ve know “El Gringo” for about 10 years. I have been fortunate to have work by his side during surgery. Now I am a patient of his . He is seeing me for my shoulder rotator cuff repair. He did an awesome job on my shoulder. I would highly recommend Dr Millstein for any orthopedic issues. He has the best bedside manners. He was by my side in the OR till I feel asleep :)

Went to review my 2012 shoulder surgery
Shoulder pain after 10 years due to some heavy gardening and was worried I must have done something very bad, due to the pain.

Dr. Millstein was absolutely fabulous - from the very first conversation and then throughout the entire process of my son's shoulder surgery (and follow-up). His office was reliable, communicative, and available for any/all questions. The surgi-center staff and medical team (from the front desk, nurses, anesthesiologist, etc...) were wonderful and kind. Can't say enough good things about everyone involved. He is THE BEST!!!!

The sadness of these grades is that there is NOT 6
Dr Eric Millstein is simply professional, very communicative, and far beyond excellent. He is a fantastic doctor with a wonderful personality. Also his Practice Coordinator, Mariana is a gem; always returning calls immediately; follow up is her middle name and she has the kindest, most helpful personality - simply she is an enormous asset for a great doctor and for his patients!
