I recommend Dr. Stein to everyone! He is incredibly patient with parents and children. He once spent over an hour discussing my son’s impending surgery, even though it was off hours and in the late evening when we could speak following bedtime. During this conversation I realized how impeccable his professional knowledge really is and he conveyed the information in terms we understood. I’ve never met a more sincere and dedicated physician!

Dr. Stein is a wonderful doctor who recently saw our newborn son for possible tounge tie. He and his staff had terrific bedside manner and made us feel comfortable and thoroughly explained their findings. Although our son does not have that condition the Doctor connected us with a Lactation consultant and gave us his personal cell to follow up with any questions or concerns! I wish every doctor would be this caring! If you are looking for an ENT, look no further!! He is the best.

Dr. Stein is a wonderful doctor and an amazingly kind and compassionate person. I have never met a doctor like him; not as a patient/parent nor through my work as a nurse. Can’t say enough good things about him. He’s smart, attentive, explains everything, great with children and parents; most importantly, he truly cares about his patients.

I had an appointment with Dr. Stein for my son i forgot so i called and i was informed that they can not help me and will not reschedule my appointment because it is "policy". my son has been waiting for this appointment for months. i am a single mother working two jobs and have a very sick kid at home, i urged them to please give me a chance and they said "no sorry" i guess Dr. Stein is more concerned with his POLICY than his patients life. I am appalled.

Beware of fees and Long wait times! Short version: Waited 2.5 hours for the doctor; There is a $400 consultation fee (luckily my insurance paid); Paid my United Healthcare copay and was STILL sent a bill 6 weeks later for $153. When I called to inquire about the bill, I was told United Healthcare doesn't cover all of the testing, but they do cover the $400 consultation w/ the doctor. I asked if this (paying $213/visit) was something the office normally sees w/ United Healthcare, was told "yes."

Dr Stein is very knowledgeable in his field which is always important. The biggest impact for us was his way with our daughter with special needs. He was very calm, gentle and really took his time to make her feel comfortable. Even though she's non-verbal he spoke to her and explained everything he was doing to her. She ended up smiling and giving him a kiss which is unheard of as she usually detests doctors and hospitals!

Maybe he is a good doctor, but when I told him the real illness problem of my daughter and I ask him for help he disappeared. I don't recommend him for real ENT problems

Dr. Stein did tubes and adenoids on my 1 year old with chronic ear infections. It was quick and easy, he answered all questions and gave detailed Postop instructions so there were no surprises afterward. Great doc- office staff and scheduler are great too!

Dr Stein is THE BEST!!!! He is always so great with my 14 month old and takes the time and thoroughly explains everything you have questions about! He did my sons tubes and adenoid removal and was so calming to me as I was a nervous wreck he made sure to explain the whole procedure to me and really put us at ease. After the procedure he personally called me twice to see how my son was doing! He is just honestly the nicest most personable doctor I have ever met! His staff is so great too!

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Stein! My Daughter had chronic sickness and needed her tonsils and adnoids removed. The first Dr we went to made us feel rushed so we went to Dr Stein for a second opinion and he agreed surgery was needed. He is patient, extreamly knowledgable, took his time explaining EVERYTHING! I was very comfortable putting my daughter's surgery in his hands! The first thing he does when he walks in the room is builds a relationship with my 3 year old daughter ,who is very shy, so she
