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 taken to 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.

Making the appointment was super easy. The staff processed me very quickly and the wait was short although Dr Shtainer is a very busy doctor. Dr. Shtainer reviewed all my records and was able to perform on the spot additional studies using his in office equipment. He explained to me the reason I was having problems and recommended treatment. He even offered his mobile number if I had additional questions. I highly recommend this doctor.

While I got in right away and saw him on a Saturday which was convenient, he didn't do all of the tests he should have. I felt like it was an assembly line of patients. He also asked me why he wrote something in his chart. Who is the patient? I now have to go to a different urologist for them to figure out what's wrong.

Disappointed. I thought i had found a good urologist based on my first visits, I was wrong. Dr. Shtainer's solution is to medicate not to get to the underlying cause of the issue.

Doctor was very short, he interrupted me when I was trying to explain what has been happening to me. He spent about 5 minutes with me. Did not provide any thoughts or advice. He did not review the medical assistant entries with me. I was asked to sign a note stating I had received privacy notice but they did not provide me with one to read. Receptionist was pleasant but was verifying my insurance with my personal aloud where other patient could hear.

The patient room I was processed in was converted into a storage room with boxes everywhere. Upon going through my consultation, the Dr. opened the door and left it open while I was still undressed. When I was moved to another room to, the Dr. again opened the door and left it open while I was undressed on the table. During both instances staff and other patients had a clear view into my room while I was naked.

Indiscreet and too short. It was less tha 10 mins and they end up selling me something. Also the practice seem very dirty and old. The lady in the front desk was verifying my insurance out loud in front of other patients disclosing my private information, the nurse asked me about the reason of my visit which I expected it to be very private and to share only with the Doctor, and the Doctor did my medical questionaire with the door open and with other patients and staff walking around the office. I expect from a doctor the maximum privacy possible and I felt embarrassed all day after my visit.

They will charge you a co-pay and if the doctor performs particular diagnostics you will be charged extra. You are not informed that you will be charged extra before the procedure is performed.

i have visited many doctors in my life but never in my life met this rude doctor. He asks you to close a door , i don't mind closing the door but there is a way of asking it like "can you please close the door but no he choses not to be polite". You know as a patient , we always have some questions or concerns so when we ask him questions he doesn't reply properly , it seems like he doesn't care or he doesn't want to answer it. Our experience here was not good or at least not friendly.
