Verified Patient Reviews
It was quick and overall good experience
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 minutes before 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.
Very professional and caring of issues I was having....
Friendly and very professional
Very patient, knowledgable, experienced, great staff , excellent doctor. He was very nice to me . The staff was very nice to me.
Dr Shtainer has a busy practice but i was seen quickly and all the work up was performed in the office. I had a very pleasant experience.
This was a second opinion consultation and i was very happy that I found this doctor. I was explained all my optoons and was reasured. I will only go to Dr Shtainer.
He answered all of my questions and lead me in the right direction ????
I found the doctor informative and personable. He answered my questions and welcomed questions from me concerning my health situation.
I developed severe flank pain today and Dr. Shtainer was able to quickly diagnose a kidney stone. He relieved my pain and even called me at home. I was very lucky to be treated here. I highly recommend Dr. Shtainer.
I was able to get same day appointment and the doctor saw me right away. He checked my urine and kidneys in the office and gave me medicine samples for free. I was happy with my visit.
It gives me great pleasure to give Dr Shtainer a great review. He is a class act.
I was very impressed with the office and staff. Dr Shtainer was able to perform all the work-up during a single visit and my blood work will be ready in several days. He clearly explained to me the reason i was in pain and laid out a treatment plan. I was told to call any time of i had any questions or issues. I was very satisfied.
I was very happy with my appointment. The doctor reviewed carefully all my records and found the reason my problem was misdiagnosed. He is very professional and accessible.
The office staff was very polite abd helpful with my insurance. The medical assistant took me quickly and went over my history and then i saw Dr Shtainer. He was very polite snd knowledgeable. All tests were performed in the office and I didn't have to take extra time ftom work. Dr Shtainer explained everything as he performs rhe studied himself. I highly recommend this facility.
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.
I was very satisfied with my experience. I would recommend Dr Shtainer to all my friends and family.
I saw this physician as a second opinnion and decided to stay with him. He explained all my options which my other urologist didnt do.
Very knowledgeable doctor. State of the art equipment. Pleasure.
Excellent experience. I came for a second opinion but I am staying here. Very attentive and caring doctor.
I highly recommend Dr Shtainer. He was able to perform all the tests needed in the office during the same visit and I didn't have to miss extra days from work.
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.
La atención excelente , igual el medico un profesional muy capaz..
He is a professional, he is a great doctor and I recommend to everyone.
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.
Very thorough and friendly
Is pretty attentive and definitely listened to my concerns and was able to treat me in a very reasonable time frame. There also isn't a big wait to be seen which i appreciated. I'd recommend him.
He is great and gets straight to the point like his attitude calm n smart knows what he is doing
He was not attentive to my needs, he barely listened to me, and he did not make me feel comfortable talking to him.
He was attentive, thorough and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend him.
this doctor never returned my call to give me my lab results.
Very professional and thorough. Friendly with kids. Very clean establishment.
very nice and friendly
Didn't produce a thorough diagnosis, just basically threw medication at me without even knowing what exactly was the problem. Didn't show any kind of interest or attention.
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.
Dr.Shtainer was excellent ,cared about my privacy and made me feel comfortable while explaining his findings. Clean office friendly staff highly recommend!
I think the Drs great
Not very effective does not explain anything to you he just gives you medication without telling what it is or what is it for !!
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.
The office was actually closed on the scheduled date. I have to reschedule for another date.
Very good doctor. Highly recomendet.
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.
Very good overall
Great guy who was right to the point. I was In and out in no time. Staff was also very courteous during all encounters. This ZocDoc thing is awesome and something every doctor should use.
Inpatient front desk personnel were upset that the first time patient came for the last appointment time for the day and was filling out the paperwork for a long time (they booked the appointment). Doctor spent less than 5 minutes with me, probably for the same reason. Felt like at a factory on a conveyer belt.
Great very nice smart man I see him every 6 months
I am disappointed with the service. I felt defrauded. I told this physician through your web site what my sons problem was and I and that we were referred by my sons primary physician. I also told him he already had an ultrasound and I specifically asked what he needed us to come with, because the last office I called insisted that we come with a CD of the picture of the ultrasound my son had. There was no response to my requests, yet after examining my son, this physician admitted he is not a specialist in the problem my son has and referred us to another urologist whom he said is a specialist in that problem. My question is why did he confirm the appointment if he is not a specialist in the problem? And now he instructed us to go to the specialist with a CD of my sons ultrasound the material I had expected him to ask for he was honest about the appointment. I am considering further options against this physician for defrauding me and my insurance.
Dr. Steiner is the best in the business hands-down
Very thorough. Explained everything. Very patient
Caring, professional, high tech, respectful!!!
Cosy environment. Very professional and detailed in testings.
Great office doctor was very good great visit.
The office was disgusting. I should have just walked out but I was in too much pain. The "doctor" proceeded to try whatever he could think of with apparently no real knowledge of what to do. At least he provided an antibiotic as I was leaving so hopefully my dick won't rot off.
Very professional and excellent doctor, he explain to me the situation! All staff workers very helpful! Thank You Doctor!
I was very pleased with everything. ..
Great Going back Again
Extremely rushed, barely let me talk - not sure if he even looked at the issue I was referring to. Just gave me a generic fungal cream and told me to rub it around for a few weeks. That hasn't done anything so far. Also, the (rude) receptionist insisted that my insurance deductible ($0) was not met and that I'd have to pay full-price. I had to call my insurance company myself and then have them inform her that I have 100% coverage.
Fantastic guy! He made me feel very comfortable...pleasant office staff...highly recommend him
Very professional. Felt very comfortable wirh him. Would recommend this office to anyone
The doctor and office workers were nice,polite and cordial but i felt unwelcome there. His tv,magazines and medical literature were all in the Russian language so as an english speaker only, i was uncomfortable.
front desk was extreamlyrude
He was very professional and showed he cares for his patients.
The visit was extremely professional,and i would definitely recommend him to anyone with a urological problem.
seemed like a competent doctor, but hurried, distant, and disinterested in communicating with and reassuring the patient. performed invasive examination with no briefing or explanation of what was about to happen
Dr. Shtainer was very professional, listened to my concerns and performed all diagnostic tests immediately. His staff was warm, attentive and professional. I would highly recommend him.
I never had an appointment so fast ever in my life! He didn't even ask for my concerns! He didn't take not even 15 minutes! Totally disappointed. I felt that this doctor just stealed my insurance and copay. Ever again! By the way, office inside so disorganized and not clean. Be careful!
Professional efficient and to the point.... Recommend highly!!!
I was surprised that procedures were available for over $300 and yet credit cards were not accepted. Thankfully they were willing to accept payment on my next scheduled visit.
Dr Shtainer Identified the problem with my son very quickly, got me to understand the issue and prescribed a solution. I was very happy with the visit
I'VE BEEN VISITING DR. SHTAINER FOR THE PASS FEW YEARS, AND EACH VISIT HAS BEEN VERY THOROUGH. TWO YRS AGO I HAD AND PROSTATE ISSUE IN INSTED OF IMPLYING THAT I HAVE A MINI PROCEDURE,HE PRESCRIBED AN ANTIBIOTIC WHICH CURED THE PROBLEM. THE DR. IS VERY WELL MANNERD AND MAINTAINS HIS PROFESSIONALISM AT ALL TIMES. IM LOOKING FORWARD TO CONTINUE MY MY SEMI- OR ANNUEL VISITS.
Everything was fine, except for the long waiting in the line... All my family members are the clients of this office. We know doctor Shtainer for 7 years and trust him and his assistants. I would bravely recommend this office to all my friends and relatives...
Dr.Shtainer seemed to give me a good examination including sonography... I will be following up with the doctor in one week, hoping that the treatment prescribed has given me relief.
He checked his e-mail or was texting on his phone during my appointment, while I was in the room. Immediately after a prostate exam, no less. He was quite rude and brusque and his staff was very disorganized. Did not feel comfortable discussing my symptoms or background with him because it didn't seem like he was listening or paying attention. Never sent me the results of a test I took. Prescribed me medication - but had no record of it in his files during my follow up appointment. I'm sure he's very intelligent and an apt doctor, but he treated me like a number and not a patient. Would not recommend
Very professional, very caring and thorough... Highly recommended Urologist.
It was only a follow up visit.
This is my initial impression. Dr. Shtainer was most professional and focused. He is a person whose competance is expressed by his actions . I would most certainly recommend him to anyone needing a urologist. My only caution is the hope that I feel this way all through our relationship.
First and foremost, this office has no sense of professionalism at all. Very rude front desk employees who speak to you as if they were doing you a favor. Loud, noisy, arguing in front of patients waiting to see the doctor.Your privacy is not garanteed in this office as they would loudly ask you to repeat your address even though it is right in front of them. Poor English, very unsatisfied. As far as the doctor himself, he seems to know what he's doing but very little concern about answering questions or concerns. He will make you feel very much like someone who is in to pick up a prescription. In overall, most patients looked very disappointed leaving the office so was I. I highly NOT recommend this office, there are better.
rush, not thorough, do not recommend!
professional, easy to talk to, nice.
He is a GREAT DOCTOR. I saw him in the past and will highly recommend him in the future.
Dr. Shtainer is an excellent doctor - highly recommended
Great and professional doctor.
Very professional and great bedside manner.
He is very good but he needs to spend more time with his patients. Listening to them and then on diagnosis. LoL and may be change the receptionist, she is kind of unprofessional with poker face!
Competent, professional. Almost a gruff bedside manner although for a urologist (being a male) it was appopriate.
Extremely professional, helpful and to the point.
This was my first time visiting Dr. Shtainer (as well as using Zoc Doc). The wait time was not bad (about 10 mins) and Dr. Shtainer was pleasant. Bedside manner was totally fine. I have no complaints about the Doctor; however, the receptionists were both moody and not very pleasant to deal with. Nothing bad happened with them, but they clearly didn't seem thrilled to be helping patients or answering phones. Regardless, I will be returning to see Dr. Shtainer for a follow up appointment. I would also use Zoc Doc again to book my medical appointments.
While the doctor was fairly thorough, he was a bit brusk and seemed hurried. There was no other patient waiting at the time.
I'd wish he was more thorough with patient issues.More communication.Seemed like he was in a rush to get me in and out.
