Dr. David Shusterman is a brilliant and engaging urologist serving Manhattan and Forest Hills. Dr. Shusterman earned his medical degree from Stony Brook University and completed his residency programs in urology and general surgery at the Robert Wood Johnson Hospital (Rutgers). Dr. Shusterman has been practicing for 18 years and is Board certified by the American Board of Urology. Dr. Shusterman makes every effort to put his patients at ease and provide them with the best comprehensive care. To that end, his consultations are always very precise and thorough. He aims to have a complete testing and treatment environment in the office. Utilizing the latest ultrasound diagnostic equipment most of the results are given the same day right in the office. No more getting referred to another location and waiting for days before the results are disclosed. He also has a blood draw station in the office so you do not have to travel to a blood lab anymore. Everything is done at the time of the office visit making you experience convenient and time efficient. If a procedure is needed, it can usually be done right in the office as he has two certified operative rooms and the latest equipment available. For example, he can break up kidney stones in the office with sound wave lithotripsy without the traditional invasive surgery used elsewhere. In addition any painful treatments can be safely done with anesthesia right in the office. This improves patient comfort and is less traumatic than the traditionally painful methods in use elsewhere. If you have been traumatized in the past, you need not fear. Dr. Shusterman looks forward to meeting you for an office consultation at his high tech modern office just 1 block from grand central at 42nd Street and 2nd Ave and in Forest Hills, Queens.
Verified Patient Reviews
Reception staff were efficient. Providers (Dr, PA, technician, and phlebotomist) were all very kind and made me comfortable. They included as many tests/procedures as they can in one day to avoid another patient visit which I appreciated very much. Dr. Shusterman took the sufficient time for consultation.
Great first office visit. Staff and the Doctors asst. very informative. Looking forward to meeting doctor.
Best experience I've ever had In any doctors office. They are very knowledgeable and treat you with high regard. They answered all of my questions and were very professional. I definitely recommend this office.
Extremely nice and very honest! I have never felt more confortable.
Very pleased. Professionalism and informative, highly recommend.
Thorough, knowledgeable, great bedside manner, informative. tests done in his office immediately by the technicians. Some could use to be a little more polished but all in all an excellent experience.
Pleasant visit. Very friendly and helpful!
Awesome doctor and very easy to talk to.
Didnt see him personally but i saw his assistant I believe, very lovely lady.. its great when you can talk to a doctor about your medical issues in a regular conversation and laugh and smile.
Nice staff excellent doctor, no waiting everything was done in the office
Dr Shusterman is a great doctor and a very nice man. I felt very comfortable talking about my issues with him. Best part of his office is that he has all the Lab equipment and ultrasound machinery in his office so u get your Diagnosis immediately. The nurses who performed all the tests were the nicest I have ever experienced and made me feel very comfortable during many unpleasant tests. Wait time was a bit long but I made the appointment an hour before I showed up so I don't think it was updated. In any case-it was worth the wait. Would definitely recommend this dr to anyone who needs his services.
During my consultation he: - took a phonecall from his lawyer - talked politics (pro-Trump anti Clinton) - long awkward monologues instead of examining me.
Great Doctor ... very informative... very attentive. Made sure I understood what was going on....
Office personnel were courteous and professional. The wait time was wonderful! They saw me as soon as I finished the paperwork. I was seen by a PA who was very nice and knowledgeable. I cannot give a final recommendation until I have all the results, but everything so far pretty upbeat!
Some of the staff are not sufficiently trained to perform basic procedures without difficulty and there appears to be a lot of chaos and uncertainty behind the scenes regarding what to do. Dr. Schusterman also does not provide medical records to clients on the company's portal that they are supposed to do. All-in-all, not a good experience.
Caring Thorough Attentive Has portal
Dr. Shusterman wasn't the issue, his office was. Not only did they not have me down for an appointment that THEY gave me, but 2 days before the scheduled surgery I was told that they have no doctor to perform the procedure and referred me to another doctor!
Reception desk person very dry and unfriendly
This man is the place to go! He is so professional and down to earth. He actually took the time to explain to me what needed to be done and was willing to answer any questions I had. The staff was also very nice and they also offered free drinks and snacks, not something many places do these days. I loved my experience here.
Very blunt and crass when speaking about delicate topics.
Dr Matthew was actually the doctor, but he was good too.
The doctor and assistant were very well-mannered. However, I never got a call when I had follow-up questions. The receptionist did not ask me to schedule the procedure that the doctor discussed with me. When I got home I did some research online and found out many doctors do the procedure with local anesthesia, instead of the twilight anesthesia, more commonly known as conscious sedation or sedation analgesia, that Dr. Shusterman recommended. I also found an alternative but similar procedure I wanted to ask the doctor about. I called the next day or the day after. A week and a half went by without a word, so I called again. I impressed on the very understanding receptionist that I needed to talk to the doctor before I can schedule the procedure. And without an appointment date, I can't set up a medical clearance with my primary doctor. It's been two business days and there's still been no calls or emails whatsover (oh yes, I found the doctor's website and sent an email too, between my two calls).
My opinion is a neutral
Dr. Shusterman's treatment was pretty aggressive. He sent me for numerous invasive tests which ended up causing more issues than my initial problem, and never presented a treatment plan for me. He also spent half the visit pushing the new office gynecologist on me even though I do not need a new gyno. Will not return, and will not recommend him to anyone.
Wish all my experiences were this pleasant
Very kind and detailed explanation of the issue to me.
The visit was very nice and comfortable very pleased to see doctor today
My visit was very pleasant the staff was very friendly the doctor answered all my questions would definitely recommend to everyone.
Very knowledgable, social, has best and latest office equipment to get quick and reliable results. Knows all the latest new procedures
Dr. Shusterman is a very professional and kind Doctor. He got right to the point about my diagnosis and treatment. You will feel very comfortable and you will know this Doctor cares for your health and well being. He is not one of those Doctors that just writes a prescription unless you really need it, like antibiotics. I was there for a total of 2 hours start to finish, I saw 4 people who had different functions before I was called in to see the actual Doctor, they perform all the pretests needed. The office was so full, standing room only. Seems like it was double booked. I did everything online before I came in for my first appointment so all I had to do when i got in, was show my ID and sign some forms. Saves you a lot of time. The parking in the area really sucks, we had to park 4 and half blocks away but I will definitely be coming back and I highly recommend him.
Dr, shusterman was an excellent, very knowledgeable, courteous outstanding urologists, he performs tests before moving forward which was something I liked, he likes to get to the bottom of the problem before he decides to do anything, I highly recommend him to anyone.
Great great great urologist knows exactly what he's talking about, doesn't like to prescribing medicine is his last option.
Dr. Shusterman is incredibly pleasant, very professional, and very transparent about diagnosis and treatment. I could tell he actually cared about my health and wellbeing, which is rare. I received exemplary care. The only issue was that the office was PACKED, way too many patients, and it seemed he was juggling a few of us at a time. That being said, the care was wonderful and I would not hesitate to come back.
Very professional and thorough. Did not have to visit multiple locations. They had MRI capability in house so I had multiple tests completed very quickly and my results immediately. Very impressed.
Very thorough procedure. As told by other reviewers, him and his staff have the ability to do same-day ultrasound, urine and bloodwork w/ speedy results. Great, smart, personable person. Not one to leave a review for anything, so hope and trust this speaks volumes.
The doctor is very professional and nice. After consultation, the doctor guided me to do several tests and helped me to interpret all the indexes. And I think I do receive a satisfactory treatment.
Wouldn't give me test results until I came to office while I was out of state for a month. Tried to up sell on everything.
Great bedside manner! Waited 20 minutes to be seen.
You are great! It is hard to find someone who will answer on all question in a simple way, that you understand everything. Dr. Shusterman you are the one who does. I spent 1 hour in your office and got all my test done,received results at the end of my visit. Your team is very polite, professional and understandable. I will come to see you soon again, and going to recommend you to all my friends and relatives!!! Thank you so much!!!
Very unprofessional when he met with me, took a phone call and didn't say excuse me or apologize, just pretended like it never happened while I sat there waiting. He was quite condescending, too. Would not recommend going here.
Literally changed my life, 100% would recommend for everything ever.
Dr.Shusterman is the best Urologist in NYC. I was suffering so much for years and finally I was lucky to meet Dr.Shusteman. He detected my Dx and provided relevant Tx for me. Thank you so much Dr.Shusterman !
When I made my appointment I was little nervous seeing a urologist for the first time but when I've encountered with his loving staff especially with his PA, I felt an ease. All of his diagnostic tests are in the office. Dr Shusterman is a very nice doctor. He took his time with me and explained everything in details. His office is nice and spacious. I will be coming here again. He definitely deserves all five stars.
THE. BEST. UROLOGIST. IN. THE. GAME! Doctor Shusterman is professional and personable. Makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. All his staff is helpful and courteous. Will only be seeing him from now on. He really knows the research behind the medicine. The wait was a little long in his Manhattan office but as of 2/2/2015 he'll be moving to a much larger office.
He is good at diagnosing for treatment, he is also a very good listener and more specially when it come to relating and building affinity and rapport with his new patients.
Great doctor... excellent team. He was my second opinion and i could not have expected any better service and treatment from this doctor. He took his time with me and every test that needed to be done was done in the office. I didn't have to go anywhere. He discussed in detail my tests results and treated my condition.
Dr shusterman was very knowledgable and caring And his staff were very helpful and accommodating
His office is fully equipped to do all testing. The wait was quick and his staff is excellent. He has a Great bedside manner makes you feel comfortable. Knows his stuff.
Dr.Shusternan is a very good doctor.
Great Doctor and Staff very attentive and caring office.
DR. SHUSTERMAN IS NOT ONLY A GREAT DOCTOR, BUT A GREAT PERSON. RARE FIND!
Dr Shusterman is very professional and has a very professional and friendly staff. All my tests were done the same day at his location, which saved me a lot of time and was able to get instant results. I would highly recommend him.
It was very pleasant to be there..the doctor and the staff very professional. The service was excellent.
Very good Doctor and staff. The only problem was the waiting time since I had to go back to work. But would definitely recommend him.
Very professional, effective staff that reduces waiting time. Overall good experience.
He was very awkard, never made me feel comfortable and had terrible bedside manners making me more nervous than when I originally went in.
Great doctor who very clearly and concisely explains everything. The nurses as all very professional and the whole doctor's office is a very cohesive and well-running place. I definitely recommend Dr. Shusterman.
Great! Definitely seemed to care about the human element, explaining and discussing issues rather than just steamrolling with opinions.
Excelente... muy calificado y muy etico... para mi es un fantastico doctor.
Dr. Shusterman's bedside manner was incredibly professional and friendly. I felt immediately at ease as he discussed the prognosis in depth and gave me tips in other areas of men's health. His staff members were also very polite and helpful. The facilities were also very clean and contemporary. Overall great experience.
awesome awesome!!! He is very friendly. I asked him a million questions and he did not mind a bit. He has all the testing done directly in his office. You may be there for a while but that's because testing is done there ; sonogram, certain urine testing, etc. I am very pleased to have found him here. A+
It was crowded and had to give my chair more than twice to elderly lady. When they call me to see the doctor after a 1 hour wait a secretary knock on the door of the doctor office to speak to the doctor and she lasted maybe 5 min speaking to him while I was there sitting listening to there conversation. Clean place. Dr David was very professional while consultant.
Very thorough excellent care everyone was very intensive I would highly recommend this doctor I was very pleased.
Doctor is great. Office was very busy so it was a bit chaotic but we are in New York, you should understand that. My next apppointment is already set!!!
He's awesome! Much hi-tech diagnostic equipment.
His staff were very friendly and quick. His PA was super I loved her ! The receptionist had a little attitude issue but I haven't really met any nice ones so it doesn't bother me much. The doctor took the time and spoke to me answered all my questions as insane as they sounded. He explained everything in detail. I will be coming back to him. He's SUPER !
My visit with Dr. Shusterman was very unpleasant. When I arrived he was verbally abusing his staff over something they had no control over. When I met with him he was dismissive and condescending. I was supposed to book a follow-up appointment but will not be returning. I'll see my PCP instead.
Was a RAISING experience. Helped me out with a LONG STANDING problem. I have HIGH hopes the LONG run.
He was very friendly and knowledgeable. I was upset that I waited so long for an appointment, but he took his time and was sympathetic to my needs.
i felt confident that i was dealing with a professional within minutes of my visit.
I had gone into the ER in the early morning with severe lower back pain before being diagnosed with kidney stones. Later that day I made an appointment with Dr. Shusterman for the following day, he saw me and scheduled a lithotripsy treatment for the next day. While the time was uncomfortable I can't complain about how fast the turnaround was.
Dr Shusterman was great. Took his time to explain my condition, answer all my follow up questions. He did most of diagnostic procedures on my first visit (ultrasound, urine test, etc), it took some time, but he said that I wouldn't need to come back for a while. His PA- Marina is awesome!
This was my second visit to Dr. Shusterman. The wait times are too long and the reception area is too crowded, apparently due to overbooking. Time spent with the actual doctor is short and he seems to be spending most of his time looking at his PC while you're in his office anyway. He does at least show some effort in trying to find out what the problem is, but I'm not sure I would recommend to others.
He is extremely polite, friendly and knowledgeable. Amazing doctor!!
Excellent Dr. and staff. Would recommend to anyone looking for a good Urologist!
Great Doctor! He spends time talking and explaining to you everything. You don't feel just a number
The office was very busy on the day of my appointment but the staff handled everyone efficiently. The process went smoothly and it is a huge plus that the office has equipment onsite for fast results. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The doctor was also knowledgeable, informative and friendly.
Very polite, respectful, and thoughtful. It is certainly obvious that he has a passion for what he's doing. I had a wonderful experience with him and definitely recommend him to others.
Excellent doctor. he's definitely worth a visit, you wont come back unsatisfied. Also I loved the fact that his office has full-fledged state-of-the-art urine, ultrasound and blood-work capability. So you dont have to keep running around to the lab.
He is very thorough. Knowledgeable staff answers every question and in general are very polite
I would definitely recommend this doctor. He was personable, friendly and knowledgable. Staff was friendly as well. Prescriptions were all sent electronically, Tests were done at the office and were quick and painless.
Execellant !!!! very caring & professional... one stop shop, you can get all the needed test's in the office
This offie has hi tech equipment and even has a Kidney STONE breakup machine -i think its Ultra SOUND wave breakdown They are specialist is what they do!
Very good doctor. Some wait but that is because of the office at 201.
Great visit. His staff is professional, patient, pleasant and friendly. They answered all my questions and were experts in their field.
I do not really trust the guy. I had a feeling it was mostly an attempt to smooth-talk me into add-ons services that I did not need.
He was very personable, easy to talk to and I was very comfortable with his professionalism.
My visit very good. He is a very professional. he's also helpful, and worries about the patients.
It was a waste of time and money. They ran a dozen tests before I got to see the doctor, who was not interested in an examination even though I came in with a specific concern. basically the concern was completely unaddressed.
I thought the office was very thorough with testing and Dr. Shusterman spent a lot of time with me and answered all of my questions.
dr shusterman is a very good dr. he answered all of my quuetions. He is a very welcoming dr. i highly recommened people to see dr shusterman.
Listens to your problems and does the best he can to help you out. Definitely recommend Dr. Shusterman.
Less interested in fixing your problem and more interested in making fun of your faith.
He's a truth professional. He take good care to sick people
I've waited almost an hour every time I've been to see Dr. Shusterman- as a precaution do NOT book an appointment around lunchtime- as he takes lunch and makes patients wait while he is out. As a young woman, I feel like he didn't relate to me at all. He just gave me prescriptions to get me in and out as fast as possible. When I inevitably came back with concerns, more prescriptions were thrown at me without any discussion of side effects or other treatment options. If you are woman or dislike waiting, I would suggest going to someone else.
Never explained side effects of a medicine untill 2 months of usage.
Totally professional and thorough and gives me confidence that he can help to solve my medical issues. We shall see....
every one was professional there was alot of people even so i still was seen in a timely manner, the place was busy but everyone was working.
Kind and professional young doctor
I have been a patient for several years. He is an amazing doctor. I have never had to wait more than a few minutes to see the doctor after all my testing is complete. Everyone in his office is friendly and helpful. Procedures in his office are painless and very comfortable. I wish all my doctors where like him. Will recommend him to anyone.
Prescribed medicine without inquiring about the problem
He was okay. I didn't feel like he was very personable, but his equipment was soooo cool top notch!!, and the wait time was acceptable
long wait to see doc, finally 3 hours later seen him. secretary told me to drink water and didnt know why until 45 minutes later waiting,secretary told me the wait time was longer because I had a appt at 1145, but told her I had an appointment 10 am. nice doctor but very long wait time.
On the bright side, Dr. Shusterman was able to diagnose the problem in an instant upon examination, prescribe a simple solution, and he had a friendly manner. But I had two issues with the visit: 1. I was put through several tests in his office before I was even seen, which I later found from talking to other doctors were unrelated to my symptoms and ran up the cost; 2. as a result I was in his office for over 2 hours. I suspect if I'd insisted on seeing him first, I would have been out of there in less than 30 minutes.
All the good reviews I found here were correct and then some. The doctor and his staff were very professional, friendly and listened to my issues and gave me very personal care. He treated me more like a family member than a patient. I will recommend him to anyone. He has a beautiful midtown office that has a open area waiting room. I was seen right away and he did all the testing right away. Thanks to Zocdoc for helping me find this great doc.
Excellent office with a great staff. Testing was done on the most advanced equipment I have seen. While other offices have an outdated look his office is modern and new. Wait time was minimal. His whole office is paperless and when I came to see the doctor all my testing and results where right on his computer. He knew all my results right away. He was very friendly and easy to talk to. He treated me like a relative even though I just met him. While many other doctor I consulted where recommending surgery, he touted a minimally invasive approach. He saved me from an unnecessary operation. I recommend him to anyone.
I took my grandson to the doctor and it was his first visit like this and he is 24 yrs old. He was nervous and the doctor was excellent with him and the issue we needed help with. i would recommend Dr. Shusterman very highly to everyone. My grandson was very comfortable and told me how great the doctor was.
It was was very professional. I felt relieved and the staff made me feel at ease. Dr. Shusterman was very concrete, and down to the point. Thank you.
Very technologically advanced office with a lot to offer.
Dr Shusterman has won many patient choice and Top Urologist awards and now I know why. He found a kidney stone on his ultrasound and was able to blow up the stone right on his office. Amazing! Everything he did was smooth and painless. I highly recommend. I have been to a few urologists with kidney stones before and Dr Shusterman has my vote for Top Urologist!!
Staff very friendly for the most part, well run and efficient office, equipment seems high end. Doc seemed to be very busy and rushed but that may be due to me not having anything serious. Doc seems to be very knowledgeable.
The staff was pleasant and friendly. I enjoyed my visit. The doctor was wonderful and I would recommend him.
