Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Shein is the best doctor/surgeon.
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 inquired and explained about my surgery on my foot which was also due to the same fall. I highly recommend!
I went for a follow up. Got quick X - Rays. Service is not a problem at all. Thank you. I am feeling better .
I was very pleased with my appointment with Dr. Shein! He was very knowledgeable and thorough during the examination. I am planning on listening to his orders, and hoping that he will help alleviate/cure my lower back pain. I highly recommend!
Great as usual. Been going to the doctor for 10+ years
I never have any issues. The staff is awesome. Very helpful with any questions I'd have. Great problem solvers. Very comfortable environment. I'd recommend the place to anyone who needs medical attention in the Orthopedic Department .4
I love this doctor regardless on how much people complain about waiting they refuse to change doctor. They know Dr. Shein will work with you to get your body back better then before your injury and will also leave with a better quality of life.
I feel relieved that he was able to diagnose and resolve my rotator cuff pain. I feel confident in the treatment plan he has for me.
It was satisfactory. Never had any problems being treated at the office. I recommend any to give it a try and visit . Staff is awesome. Dr. Shein and his assistant Martha are both great doctors . Their staff helps you in Any way they can to meet your medical needs. Thank you
He told someone to call in medication for me and they did not do it! Not a good thing!
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 little bit 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!
Great as usual. Felt reassured about getting better
Over a 3 Hour Wait Time!! Not happy with that at all..Office was severely packed, barely any seats left. Xray Tech was very pleasant. Doctor was very nice and informative. Visit was very quick and to the point.
Good as usual. Been going to him for over 10 years so i know theres a wait time
Very please with Dr. Shein. A bit of a wait but we'll worth it. He was certainly knowledgeable and very professional.
I couldn't stay to see the Dr. I waited 1 1/2 hrs and was told I still had one more patient ahead of me. I had to get to work. This happened on my previous visit but I waited to see him then. I made another appt for next week bur may cancel
I love this doctor! He"s amazing! Great job on my operation!
Dr. Shein is great! His wait times can be long but totally worth it!
Fast visit and waiting time.
All the staff were warm, welcoming, professional and very helpful.
Inspite of waiting the professional Dr. Experience Is amazing,the great care showered me thanks for Dr David Shein
The doctor was excellent and attentive. He fitted me for a back brace and answered all my questions. I highly recommend him.
Very knowledgeable a kind doctor. Everything done right in one office. I filled out my paperwork with zocdoc but had to do them again at the office.
a little bit of a wait but the staff and Dr are great.
I think he is an excellent Doctor!
Didn't sit and talk with him, instead he talking to his recorder about me, I couldn't get a word in. But he examine my back. He like rush & go mood.
Down to earth doctor with an apparent Wealth of experience and does not put The standard clinical spin on things. His bedside manner put me at ease immediately. His words about my condition were encouraging.
Performed lumbar fusion surgery (extensive). Remarkable doctor.
Dr. Shein has changed my life to the better.
I love this doctor, Dr. Shein. He is worth waiting for.
Dr. Shein was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. He was able to determine and explain in detail what was a potential issue and what was not, which is uncommon for some doctors who want you to take test after test after test. I would highly recommend Dr. Shein
The waiting time was too much, but when I Saw Dr. Shin he took time to explains with details about the Revision of my left hip he did back in 2005.
He was awesome!
I felt really safe with him. He is incredibly intelligent and detailed. Also it is very uncommon to find a doctor that is so intelligent and has great bedside manner and he does. I would highly recommend.
Dr. Shein is amazing and is honestly the best way to start the day. So intelligent and beneficial. He noticed a goiter which led to me finding out that I have thyroid issues--my primary physician hadn't caught it! This Dr. is amazing.
David Shein is a great doctor! He's very credible & he's also hilarious. But if you're visiting 245 East 84th street, they have you wait almost 2 hours!
He is brilliant and helpful. Noticed an engorged goiter that my primary physician missed. Very grateful I saw him.
Still don't have any answers. Wait time too long.wasted time.
This was the worst experience I've ever had with a doctor in my life. He was extremely fast and barely spoke to me. Said that his office would call me the next day to schedule a fitting for an orthotic. They didn't. I called back multiple times a day for 3 weeks. I was told that it was already done and with the orthotic maker multiple times, each time found out that they never even sent my prescription. This was all an immense waste of time and money. It's as if, once they got my copay, I was useless to them.
Over 2 1/2 hours wait time; way to long.
Dr. Shein seemed like a great and knowledgeable doctor. However his office was suppose to call me with a date to get an mri, that was a month ago.. Ive called several times everytime they said id get a call tomorrow or the next day and still nothing. It should take a day
excellent care as well as support staff. Highly recommend!
Dr. Shein went above and beyond to get results from another hospital that did not send them.
Felt very comfortable and assured with Dr. Shein. The only downfall was the wait.
I thought he was great he knew what was wrong right away
Dr. Shein is friendly and professional. He voice records your visits which I never seen any other doctors do and has good memory of his patient. Also, he's very thorough and takes care of an entire person. The only thing is wait time is two or more hours.
He is excellent
Dr. David Shein is the best of the best in his field. I went to him in excruciating pain and found I needed a hip replacement. He operated, I healed and proud to say my limp that I thought I would have forever is gone, he had done an amazing job, and I can now enjoy my life. Thank you Dr. Shein. I recommend him highly.
Thorough and patient.
I really like it, everything is professional.
AWESOME! He is straight forward with grace, that is the best way I can communicate to you his persona.
Dr. Shein is a very nice and amiable person, but he is not exceptionally helpful when it comes to resolving lower back pain. I felt like he kept scheduling check ups where we would not talk about anything new or helpful in terms of treatment of the problem. I felt like I was just fulfilling his patient quota. Long wait time is also a serious problem.
I absolutely LOVE Dr. Shein. He is what a doctor should be. I have seen him for my back pain and other ortho issues and he has not only provided professional counseling and recommendations, but has also assisted me in alleviating my chronic pain and enable me to return to my VERY active life (marathon running, training, etc). I highly highly recommend him. You will wait sometimes an hour or more to see him, but I promise you it's 100% worth it!!! The reason you are waiting is because he takes as much time as is needed to listen to you and to address all of your concerns as well as to explain to you what your treatment plan will be. Rest assured that he will spend whatever time is needed with you. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Shein. Yours search for a great doctor stops with him!
Great doctor! Caring, sympathetic, smart. I feel confident about my upcoming surgery with this doctor!
Good doc, but consistently runs late. Like, very late. Waited 1.5 hours (again) to be seen.
Think he listens and gives you the best advice for your pain......I've already given his number to a friend
Dr. Shein is great. He has an affable bedside manner and answers all questions thoroughly, providing individualized and logical feedback. If you arrive on time for your appointment you will be seen right away. Unfortunately when I was unavoidably late one time I had to wait over an hour to be squeezed in.
He was personable informative and very polite
He was kind and confident. It's too early to speak to whether he's identified and able to treat the issue.
Great doctor, very professional at what he does and easy to talk to and ask questions.
