What People Say About Dr. Nilar Shein, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am a patient of Dr. Peterson, who diagnosed me with temporal lobe epilepsy. I am a nurse and was curious about how to look at an EEG. And because Dr. Shein is the doctor to read EEGs, she took the time to sit with me and show me what epilepsy discharges look like. I was extremely grateful for her to spend her precious time with me to explain them. She also now treats my stepdad for MS. He does NOT like doctors, as he has had issues with many in the past, however, he is comfortable with her.

I have seen Dr. Shein since I was a teenager, and she is extremely supportive and helpful throughout all life's transitions - she is currently helping me and supporting me while starting a family. Extremely straightforward, honest, and warm.

I’m not happy with her. I saw her 3 years ago. I also want to comment that her office staff is beyond rude. After several MRI’s, testing, etc, she told me I did not meet criteria for Multiple Sclerosis. For the second time, I was diagnosed with Optic Nerve issues. When I brought my MRI and EEG into the Opthamologist, she was aghast. She did not listen to me, and waisted my time. She did not look at ALL my mri’s and other symptoms.

I would never refer a friend or family member to Dr. Shein. I have seen her for 2 different health conditions. Both times I went to different doctors after her and had better results. I recommend if you see her and are told nothing more can be done- don't listen. See a different neurologist. I saw her the second time (with follow up as well) only because she was closest and excepted my insurance. Stayed positive- gave benefit of the doubt that after 8 years she improved. She didn't.
