Amazing Dr. and excellent staff. As a pleasant bonus the office is super nice and clean and very beautiful so the few times I waited for someone I didn't mind. I can not say enough about this Dr. though. his bedsidemanner was amazing. He took the time to answer my most trivial questions and explained my situation and outlook in detail. He never rushed me and I never felt hurried. So glad my PCP referred me to Dr. Stein!!

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Stein. He was extremely thorough and honed in on important distinctions, questioning me carefully about symptoms and timing. His self-effacing manner put me at ease. He is listening, listening, listeningto everything you say. He seems to resist any jumping to conclusions and treats you like an individual. I could not recommend him more highly.

Dr. Stein and the folks in his office were great. Paperwork was quick to sign in as a new patient, the wait was less than 10 minutes, I was seen almost immediately after sitting in the examination room, and Dr. Steinwas thorough in addressing my concerns without dragging the exam on for long. There were some points when I felt cut off from explaining what was going on, but I'm guessing it's because he had more specific questions to better diagnose things. Overall, though, it was a good experience.

My visit was great. Dr. Stein is the kind of doctor I prefer - hands-on, knowledgeable, personable and an overall good person. I was surprised he performed all the duties the mid office usually performs, but that's what makes the experiencea lot more personable. Great bedside manner. He answered all my questions without the sales pitch feel. I think I found my new PCP. Practice notes: I had to put my CC number down (I chose over the phone of course) before I could book my appointment - which is precaution for no shows. This is explained in the forms you sign when you arrive. Wait time wasn't long after my schedule time.

It's been a journey finding a primary care physician in NYC. Dr. Stein is a star. No nonsense, but with great bedside manner; asked all the right questions and drilled down to some possibilities and treatment options. I initially came infor chronic fatigue and had wanted to see any internist available; as soon as I started working with Dr. Stein I knew I wanted him to be my primary care physician. There's a reason he's been listed as one of the best doctors in NYC! Don't be dissuaded by the practice's cancellation policy. I was worried when the office contacted me earlier in the week asking for my insurance card and a credit card on file; in my experience, this has either been the mark of a good office or a terrible office. I realize, after going to my appointment, that their practice is top-notch and they have to do this to offset no-shows, not to be unfair. Also, the technician Michelle is amazing at taking blood! True aim, got it the first time, didn't feel a thing.

Very prompt and thorough, doesn't feel rushed at all like all of the other New York doctors ive seen in the city. He's an excellent doctor whom I wish I could have as my general doctor too. Sees patients at theirallocated time slot and doesn't make me wait at all.

I was referred to Dr. Stein as a specialist, the office check in process was extremely quick and efficient. He asked a lot of questions and was sincerely interested in providing a thorough analysis and educated diagnosis. I can see whyNY MAG rated him as a top doctor for many years. I am considering switching to him as my general doctor.
