Dr. Agatstein is the rudest doctor I have ever come across. I really cannot speak to his qualifications as a physician, since one visit was enough. He walked into the exam room and didn't have the courtesy to so hello or even make eye contact. He performed a very painful exam with no forewarning that I may experience some pain. He spoke of his recommendation to my medical problem and just walked back out the door. I wasn't even sure if my visit was over or if he would be back.

I was severly injured and it affected the area that Dr Agatstein is the master of. Thanks to him, I am looking forward to being able to go to the plate again and go for the fences. Richard Glassman

After being scheduled twice before to see this physician (one request was by an ER department who urgently wanted me to see him for a kidney stone), the doctor's office cancelled me twice and I saw him 3 months later.
