Negative. Did not wear gloves when touching my pleural catheter. Did not want to "allow" me to speak. Do not recommend.

Friendly and helpful staff. time was minimum. Doctor was thorough and took time to answer my questions, explain the proposed plan, and discuss my potential diagnosis and treatment options. Very satisfied with the entire experience. Highly recommend. One issue is give yourself some time to locate his office within Cornell - its a bit of a maze.

After waiting almost 2 hours, I politely asked if they could reschedule my appointment as I had to be back at work. Then the lady said no because Dr. Shostak wants enough time for each patient etc. Yeah her logical reasoning was just like that! Sometime later i was able to see Dr. Shostak and it was only for 10 seconds! I don’t know if it is the front office lady or the doctor but something is really not nice about this place!

It was absolutely fantastic, I did get lost and couldn't find where exactly I needed to b, and it was making me become short of breath, so I called back up to Dr. Sho's office and this wonderful #Angel named Olga came to my aid, she personally got me a wheelchair and took me herself to the PFT testing area, wonderful caring woman. I would recommend them all , and Dr Shostak simply awesome .

I’ve been dealing with cancer for a long time, almost 10 years. I first saw dr Shostak in January when things were not so good. He saved my life. If he’s far away, he’s worth the drive. Worth the wait. Very smart man, great doctor. Thank you dr. Shostak.

Honestly I was a 1st time patient and found Dr. Shostak as in-network and his nurse as well as him was extremely professional and were a “breath of fresh air” to speak to. They made me feel very comfortable and I left there feeling so much better than I came in. I would definitely return!

I like him a lot and trust his judgement. Only complaint is his new York office at Weil Cornell is hard to navigate and a long walk.
