Verified Patient Reviews
Very pleasant and helpful.
Dr. Rothstein is clearly a very thoughtful intelligent man. He asked a lot of questions about my condition, gave me very specific details and scenarios about what the issue could be, gave me clear instruction on next steps and potential solutions. Can't ask for more than that. He was also really personable and down to earth to speak to. He even went above and beyond to recommend some PCP for me because I mentioned I didn't like mine. I wish every doctor's visit made me feel this cared about. Seems like a great guy and doctor.
sometimes a little off handed.
I found Dr. Rothstein to be extremely condescending.
It was super fast and super professional
Very solid doctor. Great advice, polite, caring, really impressed. Front office was amazing as well. Great visit!
Dr. Rothstein listened carefully to my concerns and had many suggestions to help relieve my ailments. Wonderful experience all around - highly recommend!
excellent manners but really sticks to one diagnosis
fixated on one diagnosis. But pretty competent otherwise.
He is very friendly and knowledgeable. He listens to your concerns and answers questions you have asked and those that you dont think to ask. I would recommend him.
Long wait time for new patient but the Doctor is worth it!
Dr. Roth stein was so thorough. I had to follow up after the appointment via email and his response was immediate. I wish all of my doctors were so responsive and caring. Thank you!

Very informative and easy going, great doctor
Dr. Rothstein was patient and very kind to a fraidy cat like myself. He made me feel so comfortable and he answered every question I had. There were many! In performing the needed procedure he reassured me and was very gentle.. I cannot recommend Dr. Rothstein highly enough.

Dr Rothstein could not have been nicer. Wonderful explanation of exactly what needed to be done and why. Very easy location. No wait time.
Very professional, kind and approachable. Great Doc!
Dr. Rothstein had a wonderful bedside manner. He is a good listener and is very sympathetic. His exam was thorough and he gave me clear advice on how to proceed regarding my ENT issue. I would recommend him highly.
Dr. Rothstein was so great-- he explained everything and made me feel at ease and not rushed. Would definetly see him again and recommend to others.
He's very nice and listens to you, but also very dismissive and unhelpful. I came in due to throat pain and thought maybe I have tonsil stones. He claimed there was none and said I have acid reflux - even though I have NONE of the symptoms of it. I decided to start taking acid reflux medication but the throat pain continued. One week later after doing some deep throat excavation of my own, I pulled out a 3mm tonsil stone. I don't drink milk or have milk products so it wouldn't have formed in a week that large. My throat already feels better with it removed and I am very disappointed I had to do it myself (and make my tonsil bleed like crazy) instead of having a professional do it which is the reason I came there and paid money! What a waste of time and money, not coming back to "chat" with a "nice doctor" again.
Dr Rothstein was very detailed so I felt comfortable. He is also very nice and easy to talk to - I did not feel rushed
I was referred to Dr. Rothstein by another doctor who gave him rave reviews. He was thorough, obviously has had a lot of experience and so instinctively seems to know what your issues may be. He's respectful and takes your concerns and your thoughts on issues seriously. A very pleasant mannered person who is easy to have a discussion with.
It was a great appointment. The doctor makes you very He is informative and his procedure cleared my problem.
He was excellent, very thorough and patient. Helped me find a great PCP too!!
I was very impressed with Dr. Rothstein. He has a very calm presence and knew I was nervous so he went out of his way to tell jokes and keep the conversation light. I would highly recommend him for his expertise, bed-side manner and over-all skill.
Doctor Rothstein is very knowledgeable professional. I highly recommend him
Although I did not end up having my appointment with Dr Rothstein, as I actually needed to see a different specialist, he was very kind and went out of his way to help me set up an appointment with the correct doctor who would accept my insurance. Not for nothing, but the specialist he set me up with is the best in the city. He truly cares about his patients and the work he does.
Dr. Rothstein has a wonderful bedside manner. Listened to all my concerns, made me feel really comfortable and explained things in a very clear and concise way. I would highly recommend him.
I was very nervous but Dr. Rothstein was very friendly and personal. He performed a very gentle examination as well as explained everything I should do to to help make myself better. He even wrote everything down for me.
Very pleasant practitioner who listened well.
Knowledgeable and great demeanor. Excellent listener!
The wait was no more the 5 minutes. He was completely thorough in his questions and really tuned in to what I was saying and trying to help.
Dr Rothstein was extremely professional, informative and easy to talk to. I felt like he completely understood my issues and we have a plan to move forward with. I'm very happy with this.
He was very kind, but he does NOT specialize in EAR related stuff, just throat. This should be changed online if they list it like that. He worked quickly to have me re-oriented to another facility, to give me the contact info and I had to take it from there. He was apologetic as well. And, he made sure to have my co-pay refunded. So, I cannot speak for the appointment per se other than to say that
Amazing! Best and nicest doctor I have ever seen
Great doctor. Really cares, follows up. I felt like I was in great hands!
OMG! I love this doctor! I wish he was a primary care doctor. He is so friendly, knowledgeable and comforting. Good vibes just spewing from him and his staff members at NYU Men's Health on 555 Madison 2nd Floor. I love this place.
Dr. Rothstein was the single best doctor that I have seen in a very long time. And I see many doctors and do so frequently. Dr. Rothstein was very knowledgeable, super helpful, super patient, very thorough, and made us feel like we were the only people in the world. He was fully engaged, entirely focused on us, and didn't rush us one bit. He was *amazing*. This visit was actually for my husband. But I almost hope that I have my own ENT problem - just so I can go back and visit him!
Very pleasant, professional and satisfactory.
Dr. Rothstein was very personable and put me right at ease. I felt he was very competent and was thorough in both his examination and recommendations for treatment. He wrote down notes for me when explaining my condition and treatment and even recommended an internist, because he had heard my current GP was moving.
Fantastic! Couldn't have asked for a nicer visit!
My Zocdoc appt was not in the office computer - they had no knowledge that I had an appt; however, the front desk staff was very gracious and accommodating and I was able to see the MD anyway.
