Do NOT entrust your medical care to this doctor or facility. It's been over a week since my appointment and the doctor hasn't bothered to fill the prescription he said I needed not has he actually done anything to help. I'veleft numerous messages and no response from his office. I was trying to get a second opinion from him as his colleague, Dr. Tinsley, also went MIA after a visit. I've never experienced anything like this.

Dr. Rothstein was wonderful! Highly recommend if you can get on his calendar! He takes his time to methodically walk through any potential issue I mentioned. Everything was a breeze! India, at the front desk, was super quick and helpful. Iwas in and out in 45 minutes! Maybe spent two minutes waiting for my name to be called after check in.

Very good - but required some sort of special insurance form instead of the usual referral form from my PCP. A nightmare of red tape but eventually it was sorted through and the doctor fit me into his schedule.

Over all Dr. Rothstein is a good doctor but his front desk staff are very rude. It seem to like they dislike their job and they take out on people.

I first saw a resident who was extremely kind and talked through my symptoms and worries with me. Dr. Rothstein came in at the end and asked follow up questions, performed some of the same tests and came ho with atreatment plan. I was extremely upset coming in and left feeling reassured that I was in good hands.

Great bedside manner and he listened to me. Dr. Rothstein took his time, as if I were his only patient and did not rush through the exam process. He provided information clearly, using terms that a layman could understand. Although Ihad already diagnosed myself based on WebMD searches, he reminded me that he was a licensed professional with many years of experience and more qualified to make an accurate assessment of my symptoms. He relieved my fears with his diagnosis and was quick to explain about potential treatments and why medication is not always the best answer. Great experience!
