Dismissed my education about my own disorder, thought I had a very contagious sickness did not ask if anyone around me had it (they did not) and then sent me away. I also have not had a doctor leave a room so fast when I thought we were still having a conversation. I have never been so angry leaving a doctors appointment.

This is not a review of this particular doctor, but this entire group in itself. I waited on hold to try to make an appointment for 30 minutes or so, then was cut off and transferred to voicemail. I learned when I tried to call back and got the answering service, they close their lines down for lunch and you are out of luck if your on hold. Called back after lunch, on hold while I was multi-tasking, waited 30 more minutes, got forced to voicemail again, so they have it set up without telling you that you can not remain on hold until someone with a pulse answers, you just waste your time and end up having to leave a message anyway. Very professional. Left a message to return my call. Wait for it... never got a call back. Shocker...

Can not get anyone to answer... – Jul 08, 2021
I have been seeing Dr. Schreibstein for approximately 5 years. My course of treatment has included sinus surgery and allergy management. I feel I have had a very successful outcome with improved sleep, decreased allergy symptoms and quality of life.

Dr. Schreibstein has been treating my allergies and nasal polyps for the last several years. Because of the nasal polyps, I was unable to taste/smell pretty much all the time. Recently, he performed septoplasty , as well as removing the nasal polyps. The surgery was a great success, and I am finally able to taste and smell! Dr. Schreibstein took the time to contact my wife after the surgery to explain how things went and what to expect once I got home. He is always very professional and has taken the time to answer any questions I have regarding my treatment.

Dr. Schreibstein performed endoscopic sinus surgery on me on 1/26/2021. He was kind, informative, and patient with me. He recommended Navage post op. I feel so much better. I will always be grateful to him. There are not enough "stars" to express how wonderful he is.

Marcia Plumley – Mar 04, 2021
As soon as I met Dr. Schreibstein I was impressed with the way he spoke and was confident in what my issue and resolution was. What also truly impressed me was how personable he is. He doesn’t treat people like just another patient, he truly cares about his patients. I have never had a Dr. walk me out personally to the check out desk to continue a conversation and to make sure everything is all set. He even took the time to speak with another referral (as the issue I have had to go to an Optical plastic surgeon) And call me personally to see how I was doing. I have never experienced this type of personalized care before from a Dr.. I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Schreibstein.

R. DellaTorre – Oct 10, 2020
I suffered from sinusitis for over twenty years. My allergist referred me to Dr. Schreibstein. He treated me for polyps in both sinuses and a deviated septum. He took me step by step through what was wrong and what the surgery entailed. He answered all of my questions and did not rush me. There was no pressure with the surgery, and the surgery was very successful. I am very happy with the care and time that Dr. Schreibstein took with me. I was so nervous and he made me very at ease with all of my follow-ups.

I brought my son here and one of the drs jammed a tongue depressor down his throat so my son yelled out ouch and the dr backed up towards the door and said the only thing my son was suffering from was a nasty disposition.So now we both have had sinusitis for years and we are both losing hearing and vision .Dr Schreibstein says we need infectious disease but will not send us so we are suffering and have developed various rashes and blisters on our bodies .i cant taste food anymore my nose is growing and has become a blister one the end starting to look like i am wearing a clown nose .It has gotten into my lungs now and i am diagnosed with chronic bronchitis because nothing was done to about it.I will be deaf and blind soon .Thanks Dr schreibstein.

I waited for months for this appointment, with complaints of chronic cough and congestion. In walks a Dr. Schreibstein, with an attitude of superiority written all over him. He was cocky and full of himself. I'd be willing to overlook that if he'd given me proper care and treatment. He asked some questions, looked in my nose and recommended I use eucalyptus oil in my nose. For this I coughed up (pun intended) $35 and waited over 3 months! Absurd. He recommended I see a GI doctor. All fine with my esophagus and throat. The guy didn't even recommend Flonaise, which is the only thing that's helping months and many flareups later! Somewhere on the web, it states he's accepting new patients. Didn't seem like it to me. Perhaps he's content with his inflated salary and couldn't care less about actually helping people.

I visited Dr. Schreibstein in October 2019 after YEARS of fighting sinus issues. He sent me for blood work and changed my daily routine. After the bloodwork and finding I needed an additional immunization shot as well as the change in routine I have not have 1 sinus issue this year!!! I am a teacher and usually by this point I have missed multiple days due to sinus infections. I can not say enough good things. I have battled with this for years with no resolve, after one appointment with Dr. Schreibstein I have gotten results and relief!!!!

I was directed by my primary care to Dr. Schreibstein at his Wasson Ave office for nasal congestion and chronic sinus issue. He was very accommodating, demonstrated a warm personal demeanor and took time to answer all my questions. He was thorough and provided an excellent course of treatment which ultimately resulted in a surgical procedure. Overall, I was impressed by his depth of knowledge, friendly manner, and efficiency. I highly recommend Dr. Schreibstein to anyone in need to exceptional medical care.

I was on vacation from Illinois and experience a significant nose bleed. ENT Surgeons first of all fit me in to the busy schedule within a couple of hours. I was assigned to Dr. Schreibstein and couldn't have been more pleased. He and Kim, his PA, were kind, caring and eased my concerns about continuing my vacation when they completed my procedure. Dr. S returned my call the next day when I had with further questions. All his recommendations were confirmed by my primary care physician when I returned home. Thank you so much for taking care of a patient from out of town.
