What a wonderful Orthopedist! The facility is clean, the waiting room is comfortable and wait time was less than a half hour. Dr Stefanides was professional, courteous and personable and got right to the point of why I came in. There was no alarmist attitude nor thing to send me to other places. A wonderful experience.

Very knowledgeable, friendly and he spoke to me as person and not as patient "a" . If all doctors could have Dr. Stefandis' demeanor then most people would love their doctors. Also, his office staff were very helpful.

Doc Stefanides was great. I went to him for a second opinion, and he gave all the info and different options that the first Ortho failed to give. The first one basically gave me 1 option: to go back to him every 6 months, for life. Doc Stefanides gave me all the options and did not push the option to subscribe to his office for life at all. In fact, he gave the opposite advice-to try physical therapy first. I eventually went with cortisone shots(?), given by his brother in the same office. He too was great.

Dr. Stefanides was very approachable and easy to talk to. He didn't rush the appointment even though I was referred to see another doctor for my condition. He took the time out to explain what my options were and further explained the condition I have in a way I could understand. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a good doc.

I don't think her heard a word that I said. I felt "dismissed." The fact that he stopped entering notes into the computer to respond to a text message did not help.

Dr. Stefanides was very helpful and knowledgeable. He was able to identify the likely problem I am having and recommend a specialist to help me. I have a pretty rare nerve issue which has been missed by several doctors over 8 years but Dr. Stefanides was able to recognize my symptoms and the I from me of the next step.

I've been here three times for an appointment and honestly each time it has taken over an hour to be seen. Dr. Stefanides is a nice enough person but the wait time is pretty excessive. Looking at the list of patients it was pushing over 90 people by my 5:30pm appointment. I don't know how you can see that many patients even with two other doctors on staff. Also why do I have to make another appointment to go over my MRI results? I've gotten results over the phone before so there cannot be any legal reason for this. Just another copay.

Office receptionist attitude was unprofessional. The rest of his staff was very nice. I wasn't at all impressed with Dr. Stefanides. He was very nice but seemed distracted. He also read and responded to a text while I was talking to him. He did respond to all my questions, but I didn't get the feeling that he was fully listening to me. His lab coat had food stains on the lapels and his office looked pretty beat up. The co-ed bathroom could also use a good cleaning. Parking very difficult around this area. He's a very nice man, but I would not not feel comfortable recommending him.

What a nice and thorough doctor. My wait was about 45 minutes but it is because I came in super early (1:15 for a 1:30) appointment and there were people who came in after me but on time for their appointments and they were seen first, which I can respect! The Bayside office is busy because there are several other doctors housed within it but that wasn't really an issue. When I was called I sat down with the doctor so he could look at my ankle injury and then he suggested x-rays to rule out a fracture. We had to wait about 15 min for the x-rays but then we went back up to see the doc right away and were in and out. I really liked this Dr. Stefanides. Amazing bedside manner, offered to answer questions via email and didn't rush me, as I feel most doctors do. Give him a chance!

In my opinion, he wasn't as thorough as I expected. He was very friendly, funny and knew what he was talking about but I felt the appointment went so quickly and didn't take anything away from it. I asked a few questions but since there is no diagnoses as of right now, my questions weren't fully answered. My judgments are in limbo; ill update as soon as test results come back.
