terrible Dr, spends no time with patient, performed surgery for miniscus tear 15 weeks later knee& 3 follow up visits a total of maybe 5 minutes. My knee was swollen, still hurting and very uncomfortable i suggested that there may be fluid on the knee, never even examined the knee, looked at me like i was crazy. the office cancelled my next 2 appointments, so i had my records sent to the Bone & Joint Center in Albany a week later i had an appointment, drained the knee of Fluid and shot of cortisone, have a follow up appointment next week. Thank you Bone & Joint Center, I would never use Dutchess Orthopedics again for anything, Dr. Aierstok is the worst!!

He's a jerk. Approx. 3 underwhelming minutes in the office. 1 minute: Complaining about lack of month-old x-ray I wasn't asked to bring. 1 minute: Poked at my my wrist - less thorough than the nurse practitioner who referred me. 1 minute: Refusing me a sling. I told him it hurt when my arm swung and that I had to hold it up in the air. "Hold it up then," he said. He made me feel like a speck of dirt. Now I have to delay treatment further to find a doctor who's not a jerk.

Don't ! I have never felt so poorly treated, so disappointed, so carelessly tossed aside & disregarded as I felt in my 2 experiences w/ this doc. writing w/ the hope that others who have conditions they wish to understand & be educated about will NEVER visit Dr Aierstock.In the course of 2 appts he spent total of 7 actual min in the room. He ignored a rare orthopedic disease, & no eye contact. He is careless & interested only in seeing as many as he can cram into his day & ignores "DO NO HARM"

Dr. Aierstok and his nurse Caitlyn were so great and helpful. His nurse went above and beyond to help me and get me what I needed. They make a great team. Dr. Aierstok was so nice and helpful & very intelligent. I recommend this Dr for any orthopedic needs.

doctor aierstock redid my acl + bucket tears after a different doctors initial surgery and I destroyed me knee for the second time. He understood my needs as a young athlete and put me back to better condition then ever. 7 years later and many kickboxing and grappling matches later no issues. he just reconstructed my other knees acl and also fixed a lingering hip issue, again allowing me to get back to training and competition. Highly recommended.

A doctor who has no time for his patients. Have seen him twice, doubt if I spent more than a total of 2 minutes with him. He rushes out of the room.

I would never recommend this doctor or this facility. The office was extremely busy & the staff was very rushed. Not one staff member smiled. The doctor was in such a rush I literally saw him for less than a full minute. He told me I couldn't break my arm that way, even after I told him I had already done it that way once before. He only glanced at my xrays, Which the urgent care doctor took. While I waited for an hour in exam room I could hear the doctors complaining about their jobs.

Dr Aerstok was extremely informative when I had knee problems. He will be doing surgery on my both and feel very good about him doing it.
