    When I hurt my wrist, I asked my friend who to see. She said to call Dr Joseph Stein right away. I did and I am so grateful. He took care of my wrist. I am totally pain free now. He is an excellent doctor. Lonnie M

    After I injured my foot, I was very concerned because I really enjoy running. Dr. Joseph Stein diagnosed it as a fractured metatarsal. He reassured me and was very empathetic. He took care of my fracture. Now I am back to doing the activities I enjoy including running again. Dr Joseph Stein is amazing. Michael B

    I saw Doctor Joseph Stein for my shoulder problem. He was very attentive and compassionate. The staff was very friendly. He gave me an injection into my shoulder. My shoulder feels totally fine now. I recommend him highly. Sheila R

    I visited Dr. Stein this summer after fracturing my arm while playing volleyball. The doctor was extremely courteous, offering to come in at 11pm on a Saturday night to examine me and put on a cast. He then followed up the next day with a call to see if the pain was reversing and if the swelling was going down. I'd recommend Dr. Stein to all of my friends.

    Excellent doctor. I was having pain in my knee for a few weeks. Dr Stein did a very thorough exam and diagnosed my problem. He thoroughly explained what the problem was. I received a shot into to my knee and I felling great. The office staff is friendly and courteous.

    After a two hour wait, he came into the waiting room, took the CD with the xrays of my broken ankle, and came back disagreeing with the hospital diagnosis that no operation was needed. Since he said he no longer performs surgery (!!!) I need to find another doctor. Then away he went. I never left the waiting room! No written visit report or written diagnosis. Amazingly, my copay was refunded! Access to the office is risky -- either a broken front stairs or a long, long, long ramp. Beware.
    I apologize for your wait. Hope you are recovering well. Emergencies that day. I had your best interest in mind. Can understand you were disturbed, but that is like shooting the messenger. ER's staffed by non orthopedists. Surgical decision rests with orthopedist. Would have gladly provided wheelchair and escort. You received an opinion that wasn't billed for. As I no longer operate, can be assured that no interest in telling you need surgery. 2 hairline cracks in 1 step not hazardous.

    Criminal practice. I came with pain in my knee for a steroid shot and all I got got was haggling over coverage. Sure enough, my insurance did cover it, except the Mr. Stein did not want to bother to find out, because, in his words, the hold time to the insurance company was too long. He charged a copay and send me home untreated, but did manage to ask me for under the table cash payment for the procedure.
    Patient returned and received an injection which was paid for by insurance company. Doctors are placed in the middle between the insurance companies and patients. The patients may shoot the messenger if told news they don't want to hear about their coverage. Each insurance company has their own rules and regulations. The particular insurance company required approval for an injection on most of their members. They have since changed their policy. I apologize if you were inconvenienced.
