Dr. Rothstein informed me that my issue wasn't his specialty, however, he was extremely helpful in getting an appointment with the right doctor and answered questions that were within his expertise. He said that he was sorry I wasted my time,and didn't charge me for the visit. My impression is that Dr. Rothstein is a highly professional doctor processing admirable human qualities.

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.

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 concernsand your thoughts on issues seriously. A very pleasant mannered person who is easy to have a discussion with.

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 thoughI 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.

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 correctdoctor 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.
