Professional Statement

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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).

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.

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 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.
