Made an appointment at 10:20, thinking my whole morning would be spent there. I didn't expect to be there well into the afternoon as well. My appointment was at 10:20, I showed up on time, and was out by 1:20, 3full hours from my original appointment time. Other patients were in the waiting room and were very frustrated as well. Dr. Schein himself seemed knowledgeable and I think performed a good assessment, but I would have liked if the appointment wasn't so rushed and if he had spent more than 5 minutes with me. Also would appreciate him speaking with me directly instead of to a dictophone almost the entire time. He dictated what he thought was correct and waited for me to correct him on any errors he made while he was dictating.... Lastly, his office was supposed to call my insurance for an authorization. They said they would be calling me back within a week. It's now been 3 weeks with zero follow-up.

If you are prepared to sit for a bit, you will be greatly educated by the doctor (Sr or Jr). He is thorough and clear in his explanation. Bring a book...Worth the wait.

Waited over four hours to see the doctor. I had a morning appointment. It was really quite unbelievable. They were completely overbooked and behind in the morning. Don’t know how good the doc is but you need to block the wholeday to see him for 15minutes. Also FYI the staff wanted to X-ray me before seeing the doc. I said no. The doc did not even want X-rays when I saw him. It would have been unnecessary radiation and billing.

I urge anyone looking to see Dr. David Shein to not support his practice. This is the second time seeing Dr. Shein and I felt disrespected, frustrated and dismissed. The first appointment I waited an hour and a half to seethe doctor and was rushed through my examination. I thought this was just a bad day for him so I wanted to come back to give him a second chance and to look through all the imaging I was going to have done. The second appointment was far worse. I waited 3 HOURS to see the doctor. That's even after 3 patients ahead of me walked out and cancelled their appointment. I was taken back to the room after waiting 3 hours and continued to wait there for 30 minutes as I could see Dr. Shein speaking with someone else in the hallway. After 3.5 hours Dr. Shein came into the room, looked at my X-rays and MRI briefly, rushed through an explanation of what he saw and what is going on. I had a lot of questions but he continued to talk over me, not answering any of my questions. I kept asking for further explanation but he said, "That question will have to be for another time. Come back and see me in a month." After waiting for over 3 hours to spend less than 10 minutes with him and for Dr. Shein to dismiss my questions was outrageous. I asked the front desk if this wait time is normal and they said yes. You usually wait 1-2 hours to see Dr. Shein. But no one calls to inform you that he's running late. My time, my pain and my questions were disregarded and I felt very disrespected.

I had a general consultation with Dr. Shein for chronic pain in my lower back. He is very kind and took my symptoms seriously with care. He does speak to you very quickly and leaving the appointment I'm not sure ifI had a moment to explain everything, but I feel comfortable and confident in his opinions. I will be seeing him for a follow up. The main issue I had with this office is I waited for an 1 - 1.5 hours after my appointment time. It was a very long wait, but I'm hoping it's worth it and I will find an answer and relief.

This was the most thorough and precise examination I have ever experienced before in my 30 years on earth. Dr. Shein prescribed me all the necessary assessments before telling me to schedule an appointment to return and follow up within twoweeks. He also gave me a through breakdown and explanation of his prognosis of my complaints. Excellent service.

Dr. Shein was great as usual. He takes his time and explains any questions you may have regarding your condition. I am currently seeing him for lower back pain due to bulging discs caused by a fall. He also has inquiredand explained about my surgery on my foot which was also due to the same fall. I highly recommend!

Dr Shein was great! Lovely bedside manner and knowledgeable. He was the first doctor I've seen for my issue that actually reassured me he was going to figure out what was going on and actually help me. There was a littlebit of a wait but totally acceptable when you consider how much time you actually get with the Dr and his staff, who were all lovely and helpful and really look the time to speak to and listen to me. Really happy I went with Dr Shein and finally feeling like I might actually get thurs sorted!
