Appointment was great. Was dealing with a callous on my foot that I thought may be a wart since I had had one there previously. Seen very quickly, assistant shaved back some dead skin, doc looked at foot and confirmed thewart had been taken care of by my previous doc. Told me to keep the callous trimmed down and I should be good. Excellent visit. Was in and out quickly and easily. The issues came a few months later when I received a very significant bill for a cryo wart removal in the mail. I called the office and waited two weeks for a call back from Grace, who only apparently works two days a week. I told her my situation and she told me she would talk to the doctor. She got back to me and said the doctor said they removed the wart. I offered to come back in for the doctor to look again so he would know he didn’t remove it. I received no response to that. Last spoke to Grace on April 10 who told me she would talk to Dr. Stein and call me back. Here on May 17, I received an automated call along with an email for me to handle my outstanding invoice. They have stopped any form of communication other than the automated calls and emails. Horrific customer service and dishonesty. I have no choice but to comptly, as it is my word against theirs, but I highly recommend steering clear of this doctor and this practice. This was straight up theft.

All of my visits with Dr. Stein have been wonderful. He truly knows what he's doing and cares for your health. My only issue is that his front desk staff informed me that my insurance was covering all of my bills.However, they failed to inform me that they take my insurance, but do not "participate" with my insurance so I have to pay out of pocket for all of the services.

Dr stein is friendly and professional. He does not rush you thru appointment. He removed a bunion from my foot some years ago, therefore, back for a different problem.

My only complaint was the wait time- I scheduled an early appointment thinking it would help to be seen early, but I had to wait for about 20 minutes before being seen, which impacted my own work day. Overall, Dr. Steinseemed pleasant and knowledgable- I would most likely recommend to others.

The entire staff was polite and courteous. Wait time was negligible. Dr. Stein patiently listened to my comments and complaints of pain in order to discern the problem. After checking the situation, we discussed the possibilities and the bestcourse forward for my treatment. No attitude received, questions were answered fully and respectfully. Traits that are hard to come by in the medical profession these days. Thank you Doctor Stein.

There was lack of signage and thus difficulty in finding the office. The front desk staff were nice but slow to get me to my appointment, partly due to training a new employee. However, I had to wait at least 30minutes until I met with my doctor and I was on time for my scheduled appointment. The good news is that the doctors took my feedback willingly and were apologetic for my wait and frustrations. I was considering not returning, but I may.

Dr. Stein was referred to me by a friend. I booked my appointment online and had a great visit. He's pretty exceptional. It's rare to feel so comfortable with a Doctor but with Stein I felt like I was with anold friend. He's super patient, took his time and really knew what was going on. He earned my respect and I highly recommend him.

I was really happy with this doctor. I've had a rough problem with my foot and have seen several specialists. It turned out I had nerve damage and Dr Stein is one of the few doctors you can see that specializesin this. I'd highly recommend him. His staff was really great too.
