I was seen first time in this office due to severe kidney stone pain. Dr. Shtainer was able to treat my pain and arrange for a CT scan. I avoided half a day wait in the ER. I was very satisfied and will return.

I have been visiting this office for several months and I am very pleased with Dr Shtainer. Although I originally came for a second opinion, I decided to stay here. This doctor always looks for the least invasive treatment. This avoided me surgery.

The office in Corona is a waste of time. They don't do any tests at that office. Went there and they just did a physicaI exam then told me I have to go to another office. I think it's a hoaxto get more money from people. My wife also went to this doctor before but they kept sending her to the different offices for different things. Not good. The Corona office is also does not look very nice and is not updated. No computer at the front desk. I made an appointment on Zocdoc and submitted my insurance card and also checked in via Zocdoc with all my info and the office did not have any info since the front receptionist did not have a computer. The receptionist was also not the nicest person. I was there standing then a Spanish speaking guy walked in like 5 mins after me and got taken care of before me ????

Dr. Shtainer's Queens office was great. If you're driving here, be prepared to search for parking for a while. My appointment was for a Urology Consulation was at 1:45. I left his office at around 2:12. It took about 10-15 minutesbefore I was seen to process my health insurance and personal information as a new patient, which was fine with me. His nursing assistant asked me a few questions before I was able to meet with him in a different room where I waited no longer than 3-4 minutes. Immediately after reviewing my chart he asked me what he could help me with and after explaining to him what was wrong he immediately offered me solutions and rescheduled me for another visit in his Brooklyn office to run tests. I am looking forward to continue using his services.

If you care about privacy, then this place is probably not for you. Yes it is quick and it is easy to get an appointment but it wasn't the nicest experience I've had at a doctor's office either. Initially you're takento an open nook behind the front desk where they take your information down, including the reason for your visit, medications, history of illness etc. So others in the waiting room could easily hear. The doctor did see me right away, but was quick and brief. He left the exam room and did not close the door even though my pants were still down. Prescribed medication but I had to ask him what he was prescribing as he hadn't even told me what and why he was prescribing this. Although the doctor did do all the tests (which are sometimes administered by physician assistants) which is a plus, I wouldn't go back.
