Verified Patient Reviews
Quick and informative
I was highly dissatisfied with my visit to Dr. Feinstein's office. My niece (the patient) is 13 years old and was there for her annual visit. No rapport was built with her, nor was she spoken to like a child by the doctor (Feinstein). She was spoken to like an adult patient (mind you, this is a pediatrician's office and she is a tiny child with the innocence of a sheltered 10 year old) and with limited verbal interaction. This was after the nurse struggled to measure her height correctly, struggled to place the leads correctly for her EKG, and became visibly annoyed and began sighing after almost 10 minutes of squeezing my niece's finger to get blood for the diabetes test. This left my niece in tears to which she was told very matter of factly "that couldn't have hurt." Dr. Feinstein stated "fine. She will just get kicked out of school!" when the issue of getting a vaccination that is not required for her this school year arose. My niece was visibly upset after he said this, and this was BEFORE he then went into a speech about watching someone die from meningitis. Again, this took place in front of a CHILD who was already petrified of going to the doctor as she is terribly afraid of needles. Then I was given a lab slip to take her for blood work and on the slip, it included an order for an HIV test. WHO CONSENTED TO AN HIV TEST?!! Certainly not I! Was it assumed because she is 13 years old that she is engaging in high risk behavior? Was it assumed because of the kind of insurance that she has that she comes from poverty and is exposed to unsavory things? Not only is this ILLEGAL, UNETHICAL, & PREJUDICED, but that assumption is 100% incorrect. I could keep writing for days on how disappointed and upset both she and I were after what should have been a simple annual check up, but I will stop here by saying that I am actively searching for a new Pediatrician at this time.
Ok. But wait was a little long
That was the best visit ever,they give me in my son. The best service . God bless the staff.
Dr Feinstein is the is an excellent doctor with a great bedside manner!!
My sons been going here for 3 years. He loves it and so do we!
One of the nurses (short Indian maybe) was slightly rude ...I suggest she checks her bedside manner perhaps :) otherwise ...love Dr. Feinstein and his attending Doc
As always the visit was great , everything was done in a timely manner, Ashton has been a patient of Dr. Feinstein for the past 25 years, so this speaks for itself.
Dr. Feinstein is very personable listens to your concerns and works well and understand children with Autism. He is a great doctor I highly recommend!!!
As always excellent, informative, and friendly
Kids Care Pediatrics is hands down the best, they take excellent care of my son since his premature birth. The Doctors & PA are very thorough and extremely precise. The Doctors, PA & complete staff are excellent. If you don't mind waiting at times, then this is the Doctor to take your kid(s) to. They are crowded at times, but they always find a way to fit you in when you need those constant emergency visits especially when you have smaller kid(s). I interviewed Dr. Feinstein when my son was still in the NICU. From my first visit he found a heart murmur that the hospital never told me about. His practice has never failed me. My son is three now and goes to school..so he gets sick, and they are ALWAYS available to me for visits and general health questions and advise 24/7., including holidays. Availability and Excellent Care outweigh the price I pay of an occasional crowded office and short wait at times.
Very good about time, great with kids and friendly
Excellent pediatric care for my son. Always available for any concern I have. Excellent bedside manners, excellent healthcare!
He is a GREAT doctor!! My son loves him.
I don't like saying bad things about people especially when it comes to how they earn a living, but that being said, the appointment for my daughter with Dr. Feinstein was a big waste of time.. The nurse only weighed her, didnt do anything else such as a temperature check, listen to her lungs or heart or belly.. Our daughter hasn't been feeling well for the past couple of days but when we voiced our concern, we were met each time with a "it's normal, she's fine"... Which I could believe if he actually touched her or listened to her organs... Waste of time, I'm quite dissatisfied..
He is an excellent doctor.
I really recommend this doc! One of the best doctors office that i visited so far.
He's the best. I love when we have the chance to meet with him. He's honest and gives you a lot of information. He truly cares for his patients. I highly recommend him.

I feel my children are receiving excellent care, and I am very satisfied with the level of care, professionalism by MD Fienstien and staff.
He was very pleasant, funny and appeal to the children. He gave us a lot information and advice about our situation, he was excellent!
I just think that if u have an appointment for specific time you shouldn't have to wait an hour before u see the doctor.
the response was great too treat my son 4 an ear infection was excellent
Always good professional service... Very thorough and diagnosis on point, always very prompt and informative, very good service
He is a very good Doctor!His cool manner while listening to his patient proves his confidence in what he knows for his patient! I have three children that he has attended to The eldest is 35 and she still remembers him!!
This a very thorough pediatricians office. I have been taking my kids here for 9+ years. Both of the doctors and the staff are great.
Excellent as usual
Dr Feinstein and Perlman are great. My kids have been going there since my son was five and my daughter 1 1/2 years. My son is almost 19 now and my daughter 15. My son has adopted dr. Perlman, who he calls his 2nd mother or Aunt. They are very caring doctors, which I have been able to discuss just about anything with. I usually correspond by email with dr Feinstein Dr. Perlman by phone. I love them

He is very caring with all of his patients. He goes above and beyond for his patients and that's why I have him as my daughters' doctor.
Dr. Feinstein is absolutely amazing! We have been coming to this office for year's. He makes sure to explain the diagnosis and treatment plan if necessary. Dr. Feinstein always goes above and beyond with the children. He has patience which in this line of work is very necessary. I would recommend him to everyone.
He is compassionate and genuine. He makes children feel comfortable about being at the doctor.
Dr. Feinstein is always amazing. I have been coming to this Kid's Care Pediatrics for year's. I would recommend this pediatricians office to everyone. Not happy with the wait time or front desk receptionists since it seems they are always on personal calls and look annoyed when you ask any questions. So besides that both Doctors Dr. Feinstein and Dr. Perlman are amazing. They are the reason I try and ignore the rude front desk. So as for the doctor's yes they are both phenomenal. My children absolutely love both doctor's and it's great to have that trust between patients and physicians
My children have been with Dr. Feinstein for more than 15 years. The medical staff are friendly and the office is clean and sanitized. I will continue to bring my children to him until my children age out.
Love him. Best doctor ever!
Shows genuine concern and understanding of your child's needs and a parent's concern however big or small it may be.
Dr . Feinstein is an awesome doctor. The whole staff Is amazing.
I thought it was very well. Everyone, including the staff is always pleasant. The doctor is a true pediatrician because he knew how to engage my son in the visit, and make him feel comfortable. When my kid is happy about going to the doctor I am happy about going to the doctor.
Dr.feinstein attended my three children ( I had one appointment time for them all) he had everything in sequence and he diagnosed them with care and accuracy.
I took my daughter to the office today due to consistent coughing, turned out to be allergy related. As usual, the staff are always friendly and polite. Doctor Feinstein and Perlman are always accurate and efficient. I have been taking my daughter to KIDSCARE for years and the doctors always work their magic to make her feel better. I was satisfied with doctor Feinstein's findings and treatment. I know my daughter is always in good hands and I would never change her doctors!! Anyway, she wouldn't let me!
It was good. They don't make you wait for long and they are kind to each and every patient. They do things quickly but efficiently. I would definitely recommend Dr. Stuart Feinstein
Very professional, thorough exam. Drs. Feinstein and Perlman are always excellent! Excellent staff too!
They're very kind and compassionate M.D..
My 4 boys have been going to Dr. Feinstein for going on 22 years. We travel almost an hour to see him. The staff and the office have been there for years and know everyone by their name. I love this pediatric office!
Everything went smooth, as always on my visit for my sons. Quick, professional service all the time.
My daughter, who is usually extremely averse to receiving needles of any kind, was really pleased with the visit. She said she would like to have all of her immunizations done here because the staff are friendly and thr process was painless.
Very good office, secretaries and nursing wonderful and they are very plight. This was my first time every waiting so long but it was worth my wait.
That was excellent
very accurate was able to address my hild concerns.
The visit was great. Dr. Feinstein always explain in detail what need to be done. I'm very happy always with the end results. My kids love the office, the staff and all the doctors but doesn't like any shots.
Staff is courteous , respectful and a pleasure to be cared for by them. I've known Dr. Feinstein since my baby was born 10 years ago. I wouldnt choose any other doctor.
Dr. Feinstein is a great physician! My girls were cared for by NP Kathy, she was wonderful!
He is pleasant and friendly with my son. When ever we go he looks forward to see Dr Feinstein.
THE GIRLS AT FRONT DESK WERE VERY RUDE TO ME,IT UPSET ME SINCE MY KIDS HAVE BEEN GOING THIS DR. SINCE BIRTH.DR.IS WONDERFUL BUT NEEDS NEW PEOPLE AT FRONT DESK WITH MANNERS. FOR 12 YEARS! I GOTRUDENESS,THIS IS TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.
Dr. Feinstein has been my Daughter's Pediatrician for over 6 years and we will never switch. He is always very patient, understanding, and knowledgeable. We can always trust his treatments and recommendations. The staff is professional and courteous.
I would and will see this doctor again
Dr. Feinstein is absolutely the best doctor. I have 3 children from the ages of 7-16 and all 3 of them always prefer to see him. We have been coming to this office for year's now and I can't complain about any appointments. He is wonderful with the children. Dr. Feinstein truly cares about his patients and he has shown that thru all the year's. I always recommend this office and Dr. Feinstein.
While Dr Feinstein is a bit harsh with my son as far as giving him shots and just always rushing the burst practitioner is AMAZING with my son, talks to him, talks to me actually does a thorough job as far as checking him out and asking questions. The nurses are also very good with my son, they make him laugh while weighing him so he doesn't feel any discomfort.
Yes I would see him again. He's patient, helpful , and trustworthy.
Yes JAIDON is very comfortable with his doctor. A+
Awesome visit. The wait time was because I was a walk in for a preexisting issue. Great with the kids. Friendly staff and I never feel rushed.
I've been coming here for 8 1/2 years, this is an excellent practice!!!
Fast service The receptionist was courteous .
I don't think it is right to ask patients to pay $5 to access their own medical record especially if it is forms mandated by schools, camps and other entities that parents have no control over. I feel that if Kids Care feel the need capitalize in this area, then give parents the ability to fill out these forms and have the doctors office provide a stamp to use in those areas that require a doctor's signature. Please really consider this because some of us really don't have $5 to pay for each form.
My visit w/ dr Feinstein was great as always, but the on call dr who answered my call on Sunday was horrendous, the phone call as cold and she acted as if i was a nuissance. My Dtr had a 100.3 fever, nose running, and not eating, as a new mom, you always panic when there's a fever. She basically asked me why was I calling, totally impersonal and not the kind of dr that I thought was affiliated with dr feinteins's office.
Overall experience was very good!
Like always, it went very well.
Very good Dr awesome
He's the best Dr ever we love having for our Dr my kids love him very much I think God for him and Dr sheran too

Professional and all staff very courteous
Dr. Feinstein is an exceptional pediatric doctor. I think he's excellent in my last visit with my baby. I would recommend him to people I know.
Dr. Feinstein is Very Professional and Non jugdemental . Staff is friendly and office is very comfortable. Looking for to Follow up visit
Staff was friendly
My daughter was a new patient so check in was a little longer than usual bc i had to fill out forms, but all in all the wait time was minimal and i loved the courtesy and professionalism of the doctor and the staff.
I had a wonderful experience, everyone on staff was pleasant and kind.
They were very sensitive about Gabrielle being shy and then scared to get her vaccinations, but the Doctor did it with such accuracy and care that she could not count to three as the procedure was completed. I love this place, everyone is so nice and caring.
Very professional and wait time is minimal. Always very thorough in his examination.
He is very thorough and up to date on all medical technology!
It was great. I am a regular patient. I am happy that I was able to book a sick appt without having to wait until the office opened.
The doctor was very nice and helped out alot. Also, very much professional.
